I cannot say enough about my positive experience with Dr. Zenn!! I’m seven weeks post double mastectomy and six weeks post reconstruction and I feel great and am back to normal activities! Yes, seriously.
After my breast cancer diagnosis when I learned that I would need a double mastectomy, I was encouraged by one of my girlfriends to call Zenn Plastic Surgery. It was the best call I made. As soon as I explained my situation, their concern and compassion were palpable and I got an appointment immediately. When my husband and I arrived for our appointment, we were warmly welcomed by Dr. Zenn’s staff who go out of their way to make you comfortable.
Meeting with Dr. Zenn and learning about the Zenn Delay reconstruction procedure was a complete game changer! No weeks (months?) of tissue expanders where you are not truly recovered — just ten days to two weeks between mastectomy and reconstruction. Dr. Zenn is a true professional and covered all the details about both the traditional and Zenn Delay reconstruction. My husband and I felt beyond comfortable— I’d say we felt confident in Dr. Zenn.
Although Dr. Zenn had not worked previously with my breast surgeon, he reached out and they spoke 2-3 times before my mastectomy. My breast surgeon’s confidence in going with the Zenn Delay buoyed my own, even in the face of a breast cancer diagnosis and facing a double mastectomy.
Dr. Zenn truly goes the extra mile with his patients: Two days after my mastectomy Dr. Zenn called to check in with me. It wasn’t even after his surgery, and he was making sure I was feeling ok and healing well. Six days after the mastectomy, Dr. Zenn removed my drains and I got to try different implants on for size. It was great to see that I would look like myself again — and soon!
Really soon! Eight days after my double mastectomy I had the reconstruction. Dr. Zenn’s presence was reassuring and calming, especially as I went into the operating room and in recovery.
And of course even more great service: Even though my reconstruction was on a Friday, Dr. Zenn saw me on Saturday to check on everything, remove bandages, and get me all situated for recovery. I was assured I could text him at anytime, and I did. I always got a prompt and reassuring response. I cannot say enough about how well I was cared for through this entire experience. ~ Facebook Review 2020
