I saw Dr Z to replace implants and was not satisfied. I wanted to have smaller implants then before since one had burst, however Dr. Z did not listen to me. They are not even and now bigger . I would not go to him.
Dr. Z has taking 10 years off my face. my wife says i look like i am in my late 30s. you cant tell, when i see people they say you look so good. he is the best. i was so scared and he made me feel calm. i have been back for some additional work and am so pleased. keep up the good work Dr. Z
Dr.Z is AMAZING! He did my breast augmentation and lift on June 1st and I am in love with my new and improved look! I am so grateful that I was referred to Dr.Z for this procedure. During the initial consult he asked what I was looking to accomplish and took the time to educate me on the different types of implants and helped me chose the one that was right for me. He thoroughly explained each step of the procedure as well as the risks and benefits. I left his office knowing he was the PS for me and here I am one month post-op and I couldn't be happier. From post-op day one the pain was minimal and the recovery has been a breeze. Since my surgery Dr.Z and his staff have been there every step of the way from post-op visits to answering my questions via phone. Not to mention. the scaring is very minimal and it's only been one month! Dr.Z is a truly talented surgeon with a great bedside manner and a wonderful staff by his side. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thanks again Dr.Z!
Dr. Z is INCREDIBLE and he is supported by a wonderful staff. I'm a 34 year old mother of 3. I did not know if plastic surgery was for me and was concerned with the end result. We've all seen plenty of horror stories. I interviewed quite a few doctors when I decided to have breast augmentation surgery. It was a huge decision for me. When I met Dr. Z he spent quality time with me, answering all my questions, addressing concerns, and going over every step of the process. I knew before I left the office that he was the surgeon for me. His bedside manor is phenomenonal! I was completely comfortable and had no concerns before my surgery. I had surgery on Thursday and was back at work on Monday. My results...perfection. I could not be happier with the entire process and end result! I have referred all of my family and friends to Dr. Z to a number of different procedures.
I had had extensive reconstruction surgery (DIEP) from another local surgeon and wanted better results for the last step of nipples reconstruction. I had heard only wonderful things about Dr. Z from many other women ... his friendliness, caring, and the time he took with his patients to address their concerns. I found very few of these attributes during my consultation. Dr. Z rushed into the exam room while I was still in the midst of giving my history to the nurse, started listening to "my story," and abruptly interrupted me before I could finish. (I was not going on and on, just giving my history as succinctly as I could.) He stopped me by saying, well, what is it you want me to do? Why aren't you going back to your original surgeon? I tried to explain that I wanted better results than the other PS was capable of giving me (only one method was offered by this PS and the results were extremely uneven and not natural looking). He insisted that I return to the other surgeon, citing professional ethics, and would not continue with the consultation. He also lectured me about smoking and said he doesn't do any work on smokers. I tried to explain that I was in the process of quitting but he was basically "done" with me. I felt like I had been scolded like a child and dismissed. IMHO, Dr. Z was rushed that morning and couldn't wait to get me out of his office so he could get to his next patient. I found this unprofessional and the whole experience was very upsetting to me. I am not an emotional person by any means but was almost in tears as I was ushered out the door. Where was the helpfulness and compassion that everyone described? I certainly did not find it in Dr. Z that day.
I'm 25 and had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Zwicklbauer this past January, and he is an amazing doctor. He did great work and the staff there was completely helpful. I never had to wait for an appointment and the staff was very friendly and helpful as well. I recovered in less than a week from the surgery with hardly any pain at all and all my friends and family say that he did a amazing job and I look so very natural because he did such an amazing job. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve self confidence and appearance!
I had a tummy tuck and breast lift by Dr. Z in October of 2008. I was struggling so hard with what to do after losing my pregnancy weight. Consult was warm and welcoming. The nurses were amazing and so was Dr. Z. He gave me all the answers i needed to decide on what he thought was best for me. I am so pleased with all of the work he has done. 5 years later I sit here recovering from my inner thigh lift i had done 2 weeks ago by Dr. Z. The same exact treatment this go around as well. I haven't finished healing yet but still extremely happy. I would recommend Dr. Z for anyone who may have areas of there body that could use help when exercise just isn't working. Also I would like to say that Riken and Crystal, two of Dr. Z's nurses were amazing!! :)
I'm 22 and had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Zwicklbauer this past January, and he is an amazing doctor. He did great work and the staff there was completely helpful. I was very nervous going into the surgery but the staff and the doctor helped calm me. I recovered in less than a week from the surgery with hardly any pain at all and all my friends and family say that he did a great job. I've recommended friends and family and even people that I meet that are interested in the surgery because he did such an amazing job. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in plastic surgery.
Dr. Z and his staff are incredible. I am almost 2 months post-op from a breast lift and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Z has an outstanding bedside manner, he recognized my unspoken anxiety the day of my surgery, and skillfully set my mind at ease. The results are really unbelievable, I canât thank this man enough; the results have been life changing for me. If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, meet with Dr. Zwicklbauer, he delivers phenomenal results!
Dr. Z, as he likes to be called, has been upfront and direct from day one. He has a really exceptional bedside manner and he shows respect and is very interested in what your goals are. The staff he employs are all friendly and have a genuine concern for you and your well being during your experience. Dr. Z made my experience one in which made speaking of my goals easy and did not make me feel that I was being unrealistic. Dr. Z was honest with what to expect before during and after my procedure and he also was very up front with all the physical and emotional feelings I would go through. Dr. Z made me feel that even though I was well on my way to recovery that at any time that I was not satisfied to please contact him and we could discuss options. This man made my experience so comfortable and rewarding and my end results are truly awesome and I would recommend anyone to use Dr. Z!
I had a breast augmentation w/lipo of abdomen in Nov. 2012. I feel that the care I received from Dr. Z and his staff was outstanding. Dr. Z and the staff really took time to make me feel more comfortable before my surgery. I am very pleased w/my experience at PSCHR! I would recommend to anyone to go see Dr. Zwicklbauer. Thanks for reading!
I recently had my "mommy makeover" with Dr. Z. I have had several procedures with Dr. Z over the years, most recently an abdominoplasty and breast lift and I am thrilled with the results! My opinion may be a little biased as I was employed by this office for many years, but even several years after leaving, I can say the staff is still the best and the results are even more amazing than I could have hoped for. Thank you Dr. Z :)
I have to say that I waited many years to have my surgery...I had to give time for my children to get bigger but also to find the right doctor. I traveled from about 3 hours away to meet with Dr. Z. Dr. Z was the 4th doctor I went to and I left knowing HE would be the one to "fix" me up. I went in for my consultation and made my surgery 1 month out. I then wanted to move it closer and I was in surgery the next week. Not only was Dr. Z an A but so was his staff. I have NEVER in all my time felt so cared for. I will be back...I am sure I will be able to find some other work to be done =) I have told many of my friends and family about how GREAT things have turned out and I hope if any of them need/want something done they trust in what I say that Dr. Z is AMAZING!!!!!!!
I would highly recommend Dr. "Z". He is honest and caring and has a great sense of humor. He made me feel comfortable when telling him was I wanted to change about myself and was very encouraging. I plan to visit Dr. "Z" again in the future!
Dr. Z and his staff gave the best care from the time my 1st appointment until now. I felt like they really cared about me as a person. They made me feel like I was family. They gave me all the information I need no matter how many times I called. I never felt alone during this whole process. They are the BEST team ever. Ive never felt so welcomed at any doctors office that Ive gone to. Thanks for all your help.
I had an awesome experience with Dr. Z and his staff. They took their time to listen to my concerns and questions. I would recommend him to anyone.
The most caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and prompt physician I have met. He changed my life.
Dr. Zwicklbauer and his staff were the utmost professional. They made me feel very compfortable. I feel that this has changed how I feel about myself and gave me back the self confidence I was missing. My recovery time was very fast I feared I would have a lot of pain but that was not the case at all I would say just a little discomfort for the first 2 days.
As a newcomer to the Hampton Roads area, I was not sure whom I should go to for my plastic surgery procedure. After looking through many reviews online, I decided on Dr. Z. The comments I read were excellent and positive, and I can honestly say this Doctor proved them all to be true. His professionalism and experience are top notch. I trusted that he knew what he was doing, and my results proved that. For me, elective surgery came with hesitation. And I can honestly say that when my procedure (tummy tuck) was in Dr. Z's hands, he handled it with excellence. I did not have any complications, and have healed beautifully to this day. His staff is very professional and friendly. They are knowledgeable and helpful. I was encouraged to call with any questions at any time, was very well taken care of during my visits. I am 6 months post op, and feeling amazing...even training for a marathon. I highly recommend Dr. Z and the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads. Experienced Doctor, helpful staff, clean facility...they changed my life in the most wonderful way.
I went to Dr. Z for a "Mommy Makeover" that consisted of a tummy tuck and breast lift (w/out augmentation). The results are amazing! Dr. Z is a fantastic surgeon and his bedside manner is top notch. I still can't get over the difference ... it made it all worth it. I've had quite a few surgeries throughout the past years and the tummy tuck was the hardest thing I've every had to recover from. Be prepared to be tired and sore for at least a month. But also be prepared to love the results. I still have numbness throughout most of my stomach and there's a possibility it could always be that way, but that's typical. Dr. Z discussed this with me in detail before the surgery so I knew the risks.I'm even more amazed at the results of my breast lift. I don't think they looked this good even when I was a teenager! Wow. Thanks, Dr. Z!
SUPERB listener, very helpful, never rushed. Very little waiting time. Office staff is THE BEST EVER! Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I had my EYES done and I look so relaxed and refreshed! Very little down time - DON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE!
Excellent Doctor! Throughout the entire process with the Surgical Center I felt extremely comfortable and thrilled with the results. Dr. Z is amazing and really took the time to understand exactly what I wanted, he is very professional yet is great at creating a relaxed environment. I would not go to any other surgeon!
Dr z. Has ruined my life. I am so scarred I look like I have been burned. His bedside manner is completely unprofessional!!!!!! I came to him for a breast augmention, left with worse breast than you can ever imagine. Countless surgeries later and I an still not whole.. Please ladies run...... He gets paid and then his aftercare is out the window.. He should be sued for what he has done to me.
Dr. Zwicklbauer was very kind and knowledgeable about every thing i asked. I had uneven breasts but did not want or need an implant so he suggested fat transfer to the breast. I absolutely love my breasts now!! The are more even and full than ever. I even increased one whole cup size.
Dr. Z is Amazing. He really knows what he doing! He will make sure whatever the procedure is, that he does it the best possible. Everyone i have talked to agreed and loved their procedure outcome. My experience was great. he listened to my needs and wants, and made sure i was okay throughout the whole procedure. He is friendly and a professional. I would recommend anyone to him. I went to other people searching for the perfect doctor, and Dr. Z was a great choice for me! I HIGHLY recommend him!
Word of mouth led me to Dr. Z, but his continued kindness & sincerity (not to mention amazing surgical skills!) were even more than I expected. From the moment you are warmly greeted as you walk in the door, to your time w/ one of the practice's personable nurses and throughout your appt w/ Dr. Z, you are made to feel as though you are important and being well cared for! (Dr. Z should teach a course to other doctors about patient care--he's that good!) Making an appointment is never an arduous task and his staff is ready to accomodate your needs. While the results of my procedure are mind-blowingly fantastic :), Dr. Z helped to manage my expectations for a natural result. I saw Dr. Z for a breast augmentation and receive many compliments ( & feel super confident) as a result. I ALWAYS recommend him to friends, family and even strangers. I researched doctors as far away as Miami, however every woman I encountered who had a breast augmentation w/ fabulous results were all Dr. Z's patients. So I'll save you the legwork, if you are seeking a plastic surgeon, look no further.
Dr. Zwicklbauer was recommended as a superb plastic surgeon when I had to confront reconstruction from an upcoming mastectomy. During that first office visit, he calmed many of my fears and spent a great deal of time reviewing all the options and discussed them all in detail. His confidence and optimism gave us the feeling of trust we needed to make a difficult decision as to reconstruction. I decided, and my husband agreed, that a tram flap procedure would be the best choice. At all times, Dr. Zwicklbauer was what everyone would like at such a difficult time - a professional and caring physician. The reconstruction went exceptionally well. From observation, we could tell that all his patients were treated with the same respect and attention. About 9 months later, I elected to have Dr. Zwiicklbauer perform blepharoplasty surgery and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I recommend him highly and my husband is in concurrence. We have had the occasion to go to each of the offices in his practice. Each location was pleasant, and every member of the staff we met was professional, considerate and friendly.
This will be my third surgery with Dr. Z. I feel very confident in his ability and he is a very caring doctor. We had an unfortunate situation with the materials that were used during my last surgery no fault of his but he has been kind enough to redo the surgery at very little cost to me. He is competent and knowledgeable, I would highly recommend to anyone.
I've just had my second surgery with Dr. Z. When I desire or require further surgery I won't even consider going somewhere else. I have been much impressed with his bedside manner and the fabulous results of my surgeries. I feel at ease discussing any type of treatment with him. He is honest and open. I always know exactly what to expect from the start of my treatment through the final results. His office staff is truely amazing. No matter how many questions I've ever had, it has always been apparent that they care about my feelings. The entire staff are truly committed their patients.
