Dr. Zavell says...

John F. Zavell, MD, FACS is a board certified plastic surgeon practicing in the Toledo and Northwest Ohio area since 1993. He has focused his practice on cosmetic surgery of the breast, body, and face.

Dr. Zavell has been an investigator for the Mentor and Allergan corporations in ongoing breast implant technology research since 2003. This includes research into the highly cohesive gel implant, known as the "gummy bear implant". (Allergan 410 ®, Mentor CPG ®). Dr. Zavell uses all types of implants in breast surgery including saline, silicone gel, and the "gummy bear" implants. The Mentor® external volume sizing system is used to help patients make more precise decisions about the size and look of their future breasts before surgery.

Dr. Zavell has a keen interest in facial rejuvenation. He believes facial rejuvenation should produce natural results and be tailored to each patient's needs. He combines non-surgical and surgical techniques to achieve this goal. Facelifts surgeries include full facelifts, short scar face-lifts, mini-face-lifts, lower face and neck lifts. Likewise, a complete approach to the upper face is discussed and individualized. Procedures include nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), and brow lift (including endoscopic brow lift or temporal lift).

For some patients, facial rejuvenation can be achieved without surgery. Dr. Zavell employs Botox, Juvederm®, Voluma®, Sculptra®, Belotero®, Radiesse®, Restylane® and/or Perlane® products to achieve this goal. Chemical peels and CO2 laser resurfacing may also be employed. Maintaining the results of facial rejuvenation is encouraged through Bella Via, affiliated with Dr. Zavell, where patient skin care issues may be addressed and at home treatments recommended.

With the advent of bariatric surgery for massive weight loss, Dr. Zavell expanded his practice to include a greater array of body contouring procedures. In addition to requesting his experience in liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast lifts, Dr. Zavell's patients may also discuss body lifts, thigh lifts, arm lifts and buttock lifts. Dr. Zavell is a frequent speaker at local weight loss groups including bariatric support groups. He regularly attends national meetings with a focus on body contouring.

In addition, Dr. Zavell is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Aesthetic Surgeons, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is a clinical associate professor at the UTMC and the chairman of the Plastic Surgery at Flower Hospital for over 10 years. He retains hospital privileges at most Toledo area hospital and surgery facilities, including overseeing his office's AAAHC accredited operating room. He is a speaker at the Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio, supporting breast cancer patients.

Dr. Zavell, originally from Detroit MI, attended the University of Michigan for college and medical school. After graduation, he completed general surgery at the Medical College of Ohio (now University of Toledo Medical Center) and was twice voted the Outstanding Resident Teacher. He performed his residency in Plastic Surgery at Providence Hospital and the affiliated Institute for Craniofacial and Reconstructive Surgery.

He returned to Toledo in 1993. Dr. Zavell resides in Sylvania, Ohio with his wife (Beth), a Perrysburg Dermatologist and his three children.
