Choosing a Surgeon
We believe that undergoing plastic surgery is one of the most important and personal decisions you can make. At Richmond Aesthetic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons use advanced techniques and the latest technology to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Dr. Neil J. Zemmel takes the time to educate each patient on the variety of options available for breast surgery, enabling you to make well-informed decisions about your health. This personal attention during the consultation process also typically leads to an increase in patient satisfaction with the final results of your breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast revision.
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Not every doctor who uses the title “plastic surgeon” is board-certified. Dr. Neil J. Zemmel completed many years of additional training before becoming certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In addition to a series of written and oral examinations, board-certified plastic surgeons must undergo an additional three years of general surgery training and at least two years of specialized plastic surgery training. When you are seeking a doctor for your breast enhancement surgery, we recommend taking the time to carefully research the credentials of your surgeon. Beware of doctors who refer to themselves as “board-certified cosmetic surgeons,” since many ENTs and dermatologists who also perform breast augmentation fall under this classification. By selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon, you can be sure that the doctor performing your breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast revision has received advanced training in that specific area of medicine.
In addition to being board certified, Dr. Zemmel operates out of a fully accredited surgical facility, which indicates to patients that he upholds the strictest of safety standards. By choosing a qualified surgeon who operates out of such a hospital environment, you can ensure you are receiving the highest level of care possible.
Selecting the right plastic surgeon for your procedure can be vital for achieving the exceptional cosmetic results you expect. We invite you to review the credentials of Dr. Zemmel and contact us with any questions you may have about his experience or your procedure.

Breast surgery is a serious undertaking, and you deserve the benefit of a doctor with a history of success.
