Patient Stories

I went to Dr. Zemmel for a full abdominoplasty after gaining substantial weight (and then losing the weight, but not the extra skin) after having my child. I was very nervous about the procedure, and I had a very long list of questions and concerns, which Dr. Zemmel and his staff were very helpful with. They answered all my questions promptly, and with great detail. The staff was always congenial and welcoming, and the surgery went amazing. I retained only a faint scar, and endured almost no pain or discomfort from the surgery itself, which far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Zemmel’s services.

Dr. Zemmel performed a full tummy tuck with flank lipo and met, if not exceeded my expectations. He is very talented, personable, and professional. I will never have to research (believe me, I RESEARCHED) another plastic surgeon again. Dr. Zemmel will be my choice for any needs in the future.

Dr. Zemmel is the BEST! I had a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results. The staff is very patient and knowledgeable. They always made me feel comfortable during all the office visits. I would highly recommend Dr. Z for any procedure you might be looking to get!

In addition to abdominoplasty, Dr. Zemmel also performed liposuction on the flank areas. There were 2 motivating factors contributing to my decision for my procedure. First, I lost 30 pounds which left a lot of loose skin around my abdomen. Secondly, I had a large scar above my pubic area that I wanted removed. I have no complaints about the procedure nor the outcome. The liposuction left me quite sore for several weeks however that was to be expected and I am so thankful to the doctor and staff for all they did to make sure I was comfortable.

I have had the privilege of being a patient of Dr. Zemmel for the past 2 1/2 years. In that time, I have come to view the staff and Dr. Zemmel as family. Not only is the office aesthetically beautiful and impeccably clean, but it is also run efficiently and professionally. The front desk staff is friendly, personable and detail oriented. I never wait long due to their organized scheduling and prompt check-in procedures. Special commendation must go to Dr. Zemmel’s PA, Megan Russell. Megan is knowledgeable, kind-mannered, even-keeled and patient. She thoroughly explains medical terminology and procedures before she conducts any practice. I trust her implicitly and feel she is a great asset to Richmond Aesthetic Surgery Center. I have always had positive experiences at here. Further, I have recommended their office to many of my friends and will continue to do so in the future without reservation.

Dr. Zemmel is an excellent Plastic Surgeon. I had some fears at first and he smoothed that right out for me. After going through the procedure the recovery part was a piece of cake. If I had to do it again I would be knocking at Dr. Zemmel’s door at home. Thanks so much and I am very satisfied with my outcome. “Mission Accomplished”
