“Dear Dr. Zenn, Please accept this letter as a small expression of my gratitude for your outstanding guidance and skill as a highly qualified and talented plastic surgeon.

As you know, life is about choices. Those choices can range from simplistic to complex and challenging enough to require some research. I considered plastic surgery a challenging decision, so my research began and led me to you. Your reputation inspired the decision to schedule that first consultative appointment.

It is often stated that first impressions are lasting impressions. The consultative meeting with you did not include a ‘sales pitch’ for plastic surgery. The time allowed me to meet a professional and passionate plastic surgeon who demonstrated a true gift for listening, explaining, honesty, confidence, and optimism.

My initial impression was confirmed as you helped me navigate through the steps of plastic surgery with ease and positive results. You are an outstanding and compassionate plastic surgeon. I feel so blessed that you were the right choice! I love the results!” – D.C.

“For all my worried questions yesterday, I forgot to tell you the most important thing: For the first time in my adult life, I look in the mirror and I like what I see. It is an absolute delight to feel normal. It is really actually a lot to take in – every time I get dressed or undressed, I’m kind of amazed.

Also, I saw an good friend of mine yesterday evening who informed in no uncertain terms that, Dr. Zenn, you are an artist, my breasts fit me to a “T” and, if I ever mention cup size again, he’s going to send me off to have my head examined. He also sends his thanks giving him an excuse to take a peek :)” – S.L.

“Dear Dr Zenn, It has been almost 5 months since my breast reduction surgery and I am very pleased. I wanted to write to thank you again for your expertise and professionalism. I enjoyed having you as my surgeon. I knew I was in good hands from the moment I met with you during my consultation.

I feel so much better now and my self esteem is rising. You are truly a blessing. I pray that God continues to use your mind, vision and hands to help others feel better about themselves. Again, thanks and have a great day!!” – A.Y.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, I happily consent to the release of my before and after photos for viewing on your website. Having gone to two prior consultations with other surgeons, it was seeing your work in photos that convinced me to have you do my surgery.

After seen the before and after photos of myself, side by side I am even more amazed! I couldn’t have had a better experience. Your staff, from JoAnn on, is wonderful! Not only was I not nervous on the day of surgery, I was very impressed by their response to my husband passing out – twice! They took great care of him and me.

I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done. We are (both) thrilled with my results. Thank you.” – C.E.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, I have been intending since January to write to tell you how THRILLED I am with my surgery and the results. I had a mastopexy on December 9, – The entire process was as easy as it could possibly, thanks to you, your wonderful staff, and your superb facility. I really liked the assurance of having a full operating room and, of course, being in such experienced, professional, hands. If I had known how easy it was going to be, I would have done it years ago!

The results are wonderful. My breasts look “normal now, with some lift and not just dead weight. There are countless benefits: psychologically, I feel like a new woman, lighter and freer and more confident; I can stand and sit with better posture, and I can wear clothes and look good in them, and I can not wear clothes and look good! It is nice for me that the surgery coincides with a 30-pound weight loss. I receive compliments constantly, and people attribute my new look to the weight loss. That is certainly part of it, but I know that I had already lost that weight at the time of my surgery, and the comments I am receiving now about how great I look are much more numerous and enthusiastic since the surgery.

I also want to tell you how much I appreciated your good care. You returned to the center the night of the surgery because I needed a catheter. You were completely professional and yet caring. ” – S.S.

“Eleven years ago, I had a mastectomy on the left side. Recently, I made the decision to have reconstruction. Fortunately, I was able to become a patient of Dr. Michael Zenn. I am certain you have heard many, many accolades for this very fine man. Not only is he extremely talented, he is equally kind and compassionate. He made me feel as if I was his only patient, taking time to explain the procedure, and to answer my questions. I never felt rushed. I always felt as if I had his full attention and care. Due to his comforting nature, I was completely at ease and comfortable with Dr. Zenn.
I waited 11 years to make this decision and I am thrilled with the results.

My fabulous experience was made possible not only by Dr. Zenn, but by Jo Ann Garofalo as well. Jo Ann spent a lot of time explaining the procedure. She provided information and photos on each stage of the process. Jo Ann was very patient with my questions and was always available when I needed her. She is intelligent, professional, caring and kind. Jo Ann ensured that each and every appointment was scheduled and things progressed very smoothly. Her dedication and devotion are touching. She called me at home after each procedure to ensure I was comfortable and to answer any questions.

I cannot thank these two wonderful professionals enough for treating me, both my body and my soul. My experience with them is the best Christmas gift ever! ” – J.F.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I am so lucky to have you for a surgeon. I know it must be impossible for you to realize what a HUGE positive impact you have made on my life and getting back to my NORMAL life. I feel great. I feel sexy again because of YOU! Thank you!” – J.T.

“Finding words normally is not difficult for me. To express my thoughts for the ones who turned my cancer-deformed body back into one of beauty gives me a challenge. Every day for the rest of my life your creative work will give back the femininity that was taken away. I thank you! ” – S.J.

“I would like to take this time to write and let you know of the wonderful experience I have had at the hands Dr. Zenn and his assistant Joanne. Two years ago October I underwent surgery for a double Mastectomy, which has, changed my life. I put all my faith in God with the intention and prayers that my doctors would help me through this ordeal.

As it turned out, All went extremely well for me and I had to follow-up with Dr. Zenn for months to follow. At the time I lived three hours from your hospital and put many many miles on my vehicle to get the care I needed. I have now moved to Pennsylvania and I want you to know that I am now five hours from your hospital and intend on continuing to drive the distance as needed for follow-up appointments.

I can never speak highly enough of the care I received from day one. I never got to thank properly and feel this would be a good way to let him know how much he has bettered my life. I no longer feel the dread I felt everyday looking at myself in the mirror wondering if today’s lump would be a cancerous one. He and Dr. Zenn gave me a better outlook on life.

As far as Dr. Zenn goes. He is incredible. This man made me feel like I was his one and only patient and he never acted for a moment as though he was to busy for me. I left my reconstruction totally up to him, as I felt safe. He is the most compassionate Dr. I have ever met in my life. His assistant Joanne is equally compassionate and they make a wonderful team. God gave them a gift and I feel so fortunate that I have been a benefactor of that gift. His reconstruction of my breast is an incredible transformation and if it weren’t for the small scars I would never know [ had ever had surgery.

Thanks again for such a wonderful team of people! I think the world of your facility and wished the hospital I had worked for could just come close. Even your maintenance people are friendly! Could you please forward my change of address to your billing department and let my doctors know I have moved. I will be seeing them for my next check-up. ” – G.M.

“Thanks … got the pictures. I can really see the difference (improvement). Most people only notice the much improved skin texture and say I look so “rested”. The change is subtle so I don’t look different, just better. That is exactly what I was hoping for … you did a wonderful job and you can be sure I’ll recommend you to all my friends. In addition to being a very skilled and gifted surgeon, you have an especially wonderful team. In a couple of years we’ll have to do something with the eyes (although that scares me a little as I hear it is very painful).

Now … you must know an interesting, single, middle aged doctor who would like to meet a reasonably attractive, middle aged, unemployed woman! Ho, ho, ho … !

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season. All the best” – L.S.

“Dr. Zenn has been an incredible-outstanding, genuine, confident surgeon to me during Breast Reconstruction. I appreciate how quickly Dr. Zenn replied to my e-mails.

Dr. Zenn’s kindness and skill has changed my life. It is amazing to me that someone who is so talented and skilled and confident can also be as approachable, kind, genuine and nice as Dr. Zenn is. What Dr. Zenn does for cancer survivors is special and life changing. He makes a big difference in people’s lives.” – J.T.

“I just wanted to send you an update on my first anniversay of my breast reduction surgery. It is really amazing. I have gotten full return for sensitivity and touch. Everything seems to be working well, and I am so pleased. I just wanted you and Dr. Zenn to know that there was another success in his batch. Both John and I are pleased and amazed. Thank you so much for all your support.” – P.B.

“Dr. Zenn, It has been 3 months since my surgery and I Just wanted to say that you did an outstanding job and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I also commend you and your staff for making this a pleasant experience – you are all so genuinely caring. I couldn’t have chosen a better doctor or staff. My only regret is not having the procedure done years ago!” – K.A.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, I want to thank you again for performing such a terrific facelift. It is a joy to get up each morning and see your work. What a great way to start the day! You know I consider my “Duke family” very special – you came into the picture and I trusted you immediately. (Loved your sense of humor from the start!)

JoAnn and the rest of your staff are most kind and fun too. I look forward to seeing you every 6 months!” – E.W .

“Dear Dr Zenn: Hi from Albuquerque! I trust you are already enjoying some Thanksgiving R & R, but wanted to be sure I wrote to you before next week. I expect that when I return to work next week, I will be loosing lots of details in the shuffle. I just wanted say a HUGE thank you for the wonderful job you have done on my reconstruction. The ladies in my breast cancer support group really wanted to do “show and tell” and they were all so amazed how good I looked. I put on a nice nightgown the other night and it was just wonderful to have both breasts in the same place. I could not quit smiling. I still marvel and wonder how you did the lift with only one incision. I feel really blessed by that. So I imagine the next time I see you, I will think you have grown even TALLER! Happiest holidays to you and your family. Thank you so much again.” – B.P.

“Dr Zenn: I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the amazing results from my breast lift. I hoped but honestly did not believe it could be possible to get the results that I did (or I should say, that you did) without implants. My breasts are beautiful and I am absolutely ecstatic! Am thrilled to look down and see my nipples in the right place, the areolas back to their previous size. The scarring, which is so much less than I thought it would be is continuing to fade .. I was thrilled when a girffriend told me recently, “your breasts are perky” – never thought I’d hear that again 🙂

I can now where lingerie and feel sexy again. It has been a long time. I cannot wait until swimsuit season! Thank you for your professionalism and your beautiful work. What you do is truly an art. And to your incredible nurse, Joanne, a huge thank you! She was incredibly informative and caring and available whenever I needed her and was so very patient with my questions. I am so grateful that you were so highly recommended to me! ” – M.B.

“Dr. Zenn not only exceeded my expectations aesthetically, but he was exceptionally supportive through the process and through every challenge I faced. The results of his work freed me from the emotional demons I faced before. In hindsight, I cannot imagine choosing anyone but Dr. Zenn.” – J.B.

“Making the decision to prophylactically remove your breasts at 34 is not an easy one to make. If you are like me. it requires a lot of work and even more careful deliberation and planning. There is research on top of research: researching statistics behind the decision, procedures, methods, and finally researching physicians. The later is the hardest part. I do not believe that all providers are created equal and it is oddly easier to research an electric toothbrush than it is a surgeon.

Now, after surgery, I am absolutely elated that I decided to put my medical faith in Dr. Zenn. He gave me more options for reconstruction than any other doctor in the NC Piedmont. Even better than promises, he delivered. I am in utter disbelief regarding how well I healed and how truly amazing my result are. I do not mourn my former self in the least. In fact, my latest problem is a compulsion to show my new breasts to anyone who is willing to see them. All of my dread about my procedure feels like it was completely in vain.

I cannot thank Duke, Dr. Zenn, Jo Ann and all involved in my bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction enough. Their kindness and absolute professionalism was such as I have never experienced it in a healthcare setting before. I could not be more pleased with my experience.” – C.M.

“Dr. Zenn, My husband and I would like to thank you for your professionalism and care of me as not only a patient, but as an actual person. Your guidance & expertise resulted in a beautiful outcome. You are one in a million and a tremendous asset to the medical profession of plastic surgery. From the bottom of my hear, THANK YOU!” – M.B.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, Just a short note to let you know how grateful I am that you performed my surgery. Your appraisal of what needed to be done was perfect, and I feel so fortunate to have you close by. Please thank your wonderful staff for me too – especially Jo Ann!” – W.F.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, I wnated to thank you in writing, but words really cannot describe my feelings of gratitude for the amazing tummy tuck that you gave me. I feel better & better everyday both indside and out. This surgery was such an amazing gift that has allowed me to get my body back & be able to feel good about the way I look again.

Thank you so much for being such a brilliant surgeon, your wonderful stafff and also for not forgetting that the patient is a person too. I will always remember the moment when you & Melissa held my hands & looked into my eyes with reassurance, care & confidence just before the anesthesia.

I am so excited about my new look and to see the transformation everyday. It ahs been more than I could have ever wished for. ” – J.S.

“Dr. Zenn & Staff, How does someone go about saying thank you for a new life. By knowledge and caring, you have taken away fear and pain and replaced it with fun & joy.
May god bless and keep the talents he has given you and allow you to share with others your gifts that you have shared with me. Thanks for my life back!” – P.M.

“Dear Doc, Just a little note of gratitude for a job well done from a very happy patient. As you already know, I couldn’t be more thrilled with my new addition. I was completey comfortable with the whole experience do to your pleasant and confident mannerisms…Once again, Thank you!” – D.W.

“Dear Dr. Zenn, First and formeost I would like to thank you for such a wonderful job. You have given me back my self-confidence as well as my self-esteem. I feel so good about myself now than ever before. I thank God for Doctor’s like you. As you can see, I am very happy with my nose. Once again, thank you.” – A.V.
