We know you will feel welcome and confident at Zinsser Plastic Surgery, but we wanted to share some of the comments we've had from our patients over the last few years!

Breast Augmentation

My name is Jennifer, I am 39 years old and a mother of 3. I had been thinking of getting a breast augmentation for a very long time, but never acted upon the thoughts. It took me three years to get up the courage of making a decision to proceed with my dream. I had visited quite a number of plastic surgeons, but I was never quite convinced that the doctor was right for me. I wanted to be as confident as possible with the surgeon who I was going to trust to perform breast surgery on me. All these feelings of nervousness and apprehension changed when I walked into Dr. Zinsser's practice.

Dr. Zinsser and his staff made me feel welcome, at home and more importantly at ease. They were patient with me and always there to answer any and all of my questions. I trust Dr. Zinsser and his staff as they are experienced, caring and they know what they are doing.

After all my years of research I wouldn't have picked any other doctor to perform my breast enhancement surgery. Dr. Zinsser is the BEST! As a matter of fact, I have now been considering a few other procedures to have Dr. Zinsser perform.

Thank you for everything. I thank you for making me look even more beautiful. I feel fabulous! Thank you Dr. Zinsser to you and your staff. You changed my life.


While searching for a surgeon, personality was crucial in addition to skill.  As a young adult, feeling welcome and comfortable with the surgeon I chose was very important to me.  I was put at ease the second I walked into Dr. Zinsser's office.  Dr. Zinsser and his staff made me feel right at home, allowing me the confidence to proceed with breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. 

Dr. Zinsser and his staff were determined to answer any questions I had throughout the process.  Most importantly, however, Dr. Zinsser never failed to put my health and happiness first, making sure to ask me if I was satisfied with my overall results and I couldn't be happier.  My mom even went to Dr. Zinsser following my surgery.  My family and I put our trust in Dr. Zinsser and his staff and they didn't let us down once. 

He has changed my life significantly and I will forever be grateful!

My experience with Zinsser Plastic Surgery was a delightful one. Too perfect to be true! Going through a procedure no matter how bad you want it is nerve wrecking. Dr. Zinsser performed butt augmentation on me and I love the results. Dr. Zinsser is first and most of all a professional who demonstrated his excellent skills and knowledge in the plastic surgery field. He demonstrated true concern for my well being and only suggested things that would be in my best interest even if it meant a profit decrease for him. He listened and explained everything in detail. He always made himself available for any concerns or questions. He dedicated endless hours researching in order to provide the best quality implants that resulted in an excellent appearances and a very happy patient. My incision is close to not being noticeable because of his suturing skills. His staff is endearing. They go out of their way to make you feel like their #1 patient. They put me at ease and were always concerned about accommodating my needs. His office Manager, Deb Ely is an outstanding individual. She did everything in her power to ensure my privacy as a patient was respected. I will for life be in debt with Dr. Zinsser and his staff. Even if I moved across the country, I will make sure that Dr. Zinsser performs any future procedures on me! It truly brings tears to my eyes to have found his practice here in Richmond. Because of Dr. Zinsser I walk with my head higher these days.

Thank you Dr. Zinsser and Staff!

Arm Lift

Dear Dr. Zinsser and staff (and everyone that assisted in my brachioplasty surgery):

I am so excited about the look of my new arms!!  I researched getting brachioplasty surgery for over a year and had spoken to 2 other plastic surgeons.  I am so thankful that I found you and your wonderful staff.  I would like to say “thank you” Dr. Zinsser to you and to everyone that participated in every aspect of my surgery.  I have never met a more caring and knowledgeable group of professionals.  Elective surgery is a hard decision in itself, but I can see that I made the right decision 100%  I am still healing from my surgery and could not be happier with the results and from what I am told, my arms will look even better after they have healed completely!!  I will definitely be back to get the lipo that I am interested in.  You all have touched my heart!  Thanks again for being the wonderful group that you are!


Body Contouring after Major Weight Loss

"After losing 100 pounds, I was not happy with my body and the excess skin I had. Thanks to Dr. Zinsser, at age 52, I have finally gained a body I can be proud of and most importantly, my self confidence has gone through the roof!  Thank you Dr. Zinsser!"

Brow Lift

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for their kindness.  My experience with Zinsser Plastic Surgery has certainly been a favorable one.  What began as just a fact-finding mission two months ago, has evolved into me making a decision that has changed my life.  I am so pleased that I chose Dr. Zinsser for my surgical procedure.  He is a very kind, compassionate and certainly skillful surgeon.  My experience in your office, SMASC (preop and postop) and follow-up appointments have been very reassuring.  I do really appreciate your office making me feel so comfortable during my recovery period. 



This is a long overdue thank you, but since it was a year ago this week that I had my surgery I can no longer put off trying to express to you how thankful I am to have had you as my surgeon.  Every time I have tried to put down my feelings on paper I get very emotional and my words have just felt so inadequate.

How do you say thank you to someone who had such a wonderfully profound effect on your life? How do I put into words how life changing and positive this whole experience has been for me? I realize that I am very lucky to have been able to undergo this remarkable transformation and it has been one of the best things that ever happened to me.  When I look in the mirror I see the "me" that I always thought I could be.  My weight loss was the beginning of this incredible journey but genetics would have kept me from obtaining what I had longed for all my life - the face and neck that you sculpted for me.  Still me - only better!  There are no words extraordinary enough to express my sincere appreciation to you and your amazing staff so I just say humbly - thank you.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

With deep respect and gratitude - MG

Skin Care

HydraFacial- LivingSocial Reviews

It was a GREAT experience!!! I will go back :-)

First time having a Hydrafacial & I loved what it did for my skin. Blanche, the aesthetician, was awesome too.

The staff is so incredibly friendly and welcoming. I'd go back there in a heartbeat.

Excellent honest folks

I really enjoyed my facial. It is something I will do again. I loved the whole experience.

The people are wonderful in the office and great service

Tummy Tuck

            My experience with Zinsser Plastic Surgery has been nothing short of perfection.  I had 4 previous consultations before coming to your practice and my choice to remain here was clearly the best.  Your staff never once missed a beat on answering the phone.  My questions were all answered in full without ever needing a returned call.  At the consultation, you gave me much more detail than any other surgeon.  I appreciated how you went over every small part of the procedure (Belt-Abdominoplasty), with a hand mirror showing me what could be corrected, how it would be done and what to expect.  I also felt very comfortable to give input on what was important to me.  I joked about how I made false teeth and also did calligraphy; so I was the pickiest on Earth about things being symmetrical and lining up.  You made me feel comfortable and reassured me that you had a method for making the scar straight and explained that method to me.  The most important thing of all, which is above your wonderful staff and detailed consultation, was the end result; a perfect surgery!  Thank you for giving me a much needed improvement to my body.  I cannot express my particular regards to you.  There is no doubt in my mind that you are one of the most gifted and talented plastic surgeons and in my opinion….simply the best!

A thousand thank you’s,



Breast Reduction Surgery

I just want to convey to you and your staff how very pleased I am with the results of my surgery. Before surgery I was really miserable not only with the size of my breast, but also the constant neck, back and shoulder pain. Since my procedure, I can now participate in different activities that before I felt very uncomfortable with in public. As an operating room nurse, I can perform better and personally feel better about myself. Many acquaintances and friends have commented on my appearance, which even convineced me more that I am so glad I had the procedure performed by you and the great staff at St. Mary's Ambulatory Surgery Center. I even have had several people and their family members request your name, which I gladly gave them and sang your high praises. Again, thanks for all that you have done for me.

In Deepest Regards,
