Dr. Zemmel is known for his advanced surgical expertise, compassionate bedside manner, and genuine concern for his patients’ wellbeing. He offers comprehensive cosmetic and reconstructive procedures at Richmond Aesthetic Surgery, where he believes every patient should be treated like family.

  • In its 2018 “Best of Richmond” issue, local news source Style Weekly revealed that Dr. Zemmel was voted Richmond’s “Best Cosmetic Surgeon” by the community. The annual online poll gives readers the opportunity to vote for their favorites in multiple categories, and Dr. Zemmel was awarded first place in the cosmetic surgery section of the Goods and Services category.

To be considered for the publication’s “Top Doc” issue, physicians are nominated and voted on by their peers. Dr. Zemmel earned more votes than any other physician in the Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon category, which he also received the award for in 2014.
  • Dr. Zemmel was also voted a “Best Plastic Surgeon” for 2017 in the Richmond Times-Dispatch—a leading newspaper in Virginia. The winners and finalists of RTD’s annual “The Best” awards are decided by local readers who vote for their favorites.
