So, back in 2004, I went to Dr Zenn from a recommendation from another doctor. I was a little nervous because I am African American and looking for a facial procedure. I had been advised that I needed cheek implants. I was greatly relieved after my consult. Dr Zenn was extremely knowledgable , professional, and he and his staff were very kind and helpful. I had the surgery and everything went great!! There is not enough room here to explain how well I was taken care of before, during, and AFTER my surgery. What I do want to emphasize was my outcome. I went back to work 10 days after my surgery and nobody knew I had surgery. A good friend told me something to the effect of "I can tell you got some rest on your vacation, maybe he should take some time off too." My barber whom I have known for years said "that hair cut I gave you makes you look so much younger". My cousin thought I had started working out again. People didn't know I had anything done--just that I looked better--and that was very important to me. Dr Zenn is truly an artist. My outcome was very subtle, suitable, and appropriate. I was --and am still--very happy . That was 13 years ago. I am now 59 years old and I am considering having something done to freshen myself up. I am active, and want to be (and look) my best self. I would not consider anybody except Dr Zenn. He is the best, (his reputation and awards have only increased since I had my surgery) and I feel we are lucky to have someone of his skill and stature in this area. If you want the best, most natural outcome (this was my FACE!!) go to him. You won't be sorry. He knows what he is doing.

LOVE HIM!! Dr. Is the most caring dr I have ever been to. When I found out I was going to have to have a mastectomy, I decided, "well, if it HAS to be, I want the BEST dr because if I'm going to do it, I them to be perfect. Spectacular!" Researching across the United States landed me at Dr. Zenn's door. He is not just a plastic surgeon, but also a vascular (micro) surgical pioneer. It was a good thing because he was able to do the impossible. What other Drs could/would not do, Dr. Zenn accomplished brilliantly. He always listens and is kind (stern when needed) and commands the respect of those who work with him. He put my worried younger children at ease when they accompanied me. Dr. Zenn is the "IT" doctor! He is truly an artist! Now, I can go and be "SPECTACULAR!!" :-)

I LOVE Dr Zenn. I had read some of the reviews and was sceptical, but reviewed his curriculum vitae and chose his strictly for his medical qualifications. In the initial meeting, Dr Zenn was reserved yet very professional. He outlined what was realistically possible for me (breast reconstruction) and what to expect. He was, and continues to be very straight forward. He addressed, and included, both myself and my partner. Since then, and post surgery, Dr. Zenn has been SO WONDERFUL. He is always on schedule, which I love because I drive 3 hours to see him.I have brought my children with me and he was so wonderful to them that my 10 yr old has decided to become a Dr and is now FINALLY getting her homework done without a struggle. He knows that and never fails to ask about her and send her an encouraging message. I love everything about my breasts and the man who "built" them. I did have to quit smoking, he won't work on smokers as it inhibits healing and he is definitely a perfectionist!

I had a consultation with Dr. Zenn on the day that I met my breast cancer team. When you are diagnosed with breast cancer, it would be nice to feel that you will at least look normal one day. Dr. Zenn crushed my spirit by telling me that he would not consider working on me because I was too fat and my medical history. I went to another plastic surgeon for a consult (he worked on a lady who I met in the Duke waiting room who had been in remission for 12 years) and it was a totally different experience. He thoughtfully went through my options. Before going for reconstruction, I would recommend visting a local breast cancer support people and you will hear how this man has not had only successes with reconstruction. Additionally, there is no way to find out how many active lawsuits are being persued either. it made me realize that it takes a lot of effort to have a terrible bedside manner like Zenn and not sure what comes first, the lawsuits or the bad attitude.

Very arrogant. Requested a brow lift. Did not evaluate me only offered me botox which I did not want . Dr. Zenn said if I did not do Botox-I would not be considered for surgery. Botox is not necessary for a brow lift evaluation. He made inappropriate comments about my face in the presence of my husband-my wrinkles look like a piece of furniture has been on my face for 125 years-very flip

I've dealt with numerous doctors throughoutmy ordeal with cancer, and I would recommend Dr. Zenn to women considering breast reconstruction. I'm very pleased with my results. He tends to get "nicer" once you become his official patient vs. a consult.

I would recconmend Dr. Zenn to anyone who needs a procedure. He completed my masectomy/breast reconstruction surgery and I have to say that I am 100000% happy with his art. I am glad that I did my homework and decided to choose him to do my microsurgey. He is a very kind, loving person that is above the norm in the human race.

I also saw Dr. Zenn for reconstruction after breast cancer and thought he was wonderful. He and his staff were very easy to talk to and helpful in guiding me through the options.
