Care Philosophy

"Plastic surgery is a most rewarding, gratifying, and intimate occupation because I am able to help my patients obtain a goal. For some, the goal may be functional, such as helping an arthritic patient regain the use of their hands, and for others, the goal may be cosmetic. We are all human and have some degree of vanity. Whether you are 20 or 80, that doesn't change. Most cosmetic patients say to me, 'I am 50, but I feel like I'm still 30.' I try to help bridge that gap."

Prior to my first visit with Dr. Zwicklbauer (Dr. Z). I did extensive research on plastic surgeons as well as discussed with physicians I previously worked for. At that appointment, I realized that both him and his staff were more amazing than his incredible reviews. He is very easy to talk to, which is essential when you are talking how your breasts look. My results are AMAZING!!! Dr. Z and his staff are always willing to answer all of your questions. Appointments are easy and very little wait.
