A Domestic Violence Victim Shares Her Story of Survival and Rebuilding

Richmond woman shares story of domestic violence.

A Richmond area woman who was beaten to an inch of her life begins the path to physical rebuilding and local plastic surgeon is helping her on her journey.

Richmond, VA—*Amanda’s (patient’s name is changed to protect her identity) story began in December 2008. The divorced mother of 2 was sharing an apartment with a man in the Richmond, Virginia area. She began to have a gut feeling that she needed to get away from this man. Her intuition was telling her that something wasn’t “right.” She began to distance herself from him and when he felt her pulling away, he attacked her. This attack lasted 48 hours and finally ended when neighbors heard her screams and called the police.

Amanda was taken to the Medical College of Virginia for treatment. Her daughter said she was beaten beyond recognition. She had broken ribs, was on a ventilator, went into septic shock and her breast implants had been ruptured.

Her attacker was convicted of this brutal crime and was sentenced to 26 years in prison. Amanda not only suffers post-traumatic stress from this attack, but the physical scars that she sees daily (her ruptured implants) are a constant reminder of what she lived through. She says she puts towels on her mirrors before she showers because she doesn’t want to see what this man did to her. She has had to use socks in her undergarments to appear “normal” in public.

Over the last several years, she asked multiple plastic surgeons if they could help her physically be whole again, but none were in the position to do so until she met Dr. Neil Zemmel. Her story touched the Richmond plastic surgeon, and he wants to help her overcome some of what she lived through. He is taking her on as a patient and is performing her surgery at no cost, as she doesn’t have the ability to afford the procedure.

Amanda is sharing her story of survival and rebuilding her life on WWBT/ NBC12 Richmond. She wants women to understand that rape can happen at any age and by someone you know or have a relationship with.

Her story will air February 02, 2017 @ 5pm on WWBT/NBC 12 Richmond. The day the story airs, NBC 12 will offer a Domestic Violence hotline and have counselors on the premises to assist viewers who may need help.

Dr. Zemmel is available for comment. Please contact Andrea Emery Cumbie @ (804) 312-4102 or RVAvideoproductions@gmail.com for scheduling.

Richmond Aesthetic Surgery Patient Featured in National Television Commercial After Incredible Weight Loss

Richmond Aesthetic Surgery Patient a Spokesperson for Atkins Commercial

A Central Virginia young man is now a spokesperson for “The Atkins” diet brand after losing half his body weight.

Richmond, VA — Just a few years ago Austin Shifflett tipped the scales at 324 pounds. He said a lifestyle of video games and fast food caused his weight to spiral out of control – and made his high school experience terrible. He was bullied and called names by his classmates. Austin took that torment and turned it into motivation. He began eating a low carb diet, exercising religiously and lost half of his body weight in the process.

His inspirational story has been told on several television shows including “The Doctors”. While taping “The Doctors”, Austin learned that Richmond Aesthetic Surgery agreed to take him on as a patient and to help him with something that he could not do on his own – remove 10 pounds of hanging skin which was a side-effect of his dramatic weight loss. Richmond Aesthetic Surgeon Dr. Neil Zemmel said he was so impressed with this young man’s dedication and resolve that he performed the body reconstruction (also known as a body lift) at no charge, helping this special teen complete his total body transformation.

Austin’s determination and transformation has now brought him more than just a new body – he’s being paid to share his success as a spokesperson for the Atkins diet weight loss products (just in time for New Year diet resolutions). Take a look at his new television commercial with actress Alyssa Milano: https://www.ispot.tv/ad/AiKU/atkins-look-and-feel-your-best-featuring-alyssa-milano

Dr. Zemmel Appearing on ‘The Doctors’ After Life Changing Transformation

Richmond Aesthetic Surgery Featured on the Doctors

Obese bullied teen loses half of his body weight through diet and exercise, and two Virginia plastic surgeons help him complete his inspirational transformation.

Richmond, VADr. Neil J. Zemmel of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery recently performed post-major weight loss body contouring for a young man who was featured on an episode of the Emmy Award-winning daytime talk show “The Doctors.” The teenager, Austin, had lost over half of his body weight after adopting a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Unfortunately, by shedding so much weight, he was left with almost 10 pounds of excess skin. In response to Austin’s incredible transformation, the board-certified plastic surgeon volunteered to perform contouring surgery to help complete his weight loss journey.

Dr. Zemmel performed a belt lipectomy, or body lift, for Austin to address his loose, sagging skin. The surgeon recounts the procedure, saying both the surgery and anesthesia went as planned, and the entire process was completed in just under five hours. Considering the hard work and dedication that Austin put forth to achieve his remarkable results, the surgical team was proud to provide the finishing touches to reveal his new physique.

Austin’s follow-up segment on The Doctors is airing Friday, November 11th at 1PM on WRLH, the Fox News station in Richmond, VA. For those outside the Richmond area please check your local listings for times and dates. During the new episode, Dr. Zemmel will discuss the details of Austin’s surgery, and his body lift results will be revealed.

Richmond Plastic Surgeon Announces Grand Opening Of New Short Pump Office

richmond

Dr. Neil J. Zemmel of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery proudly opens the practice’s second location to improve convenience for patients while offering the same high-quality care.

Richmond, VA — Richmond Aesthetic Surgery has been serving the residents of Central Virginia since 2007, offering a wide range of plastic surgery procedures and non-surgical rejuvenation treatments. Neil J. Zemmel, MD, FACS the lead plastic surgeon at the practice, say he plans to build upon their record of success with the second location in Short Pump, Virginia. After careful planning and construction, the grand opening for the new office is scheduled for Monday, October 24, 2016.

Dr. Zemmel says he chose the Short Pump location to improve the convenience for both current and prospective patients. “Patients from Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Washington, D.C., Williamsburg, Hampton Roads, Roanoke, and Lynchburg can all easily access our new location at the intersection of highways I-64, I-295, and I-288,” says the board-certified plastic surgeon. Situated directly on Broad Street, the Short Pump branch of the practice is on the main thoroughfare of Richmond, adjacent to a popular mall that functions as a commercial hub for the city. In addition to a more accessible location, the offices will now be open on Saturdays to give their patients more flexibility with their schedules.

Dr. Zemmel reassures current patients that both locations will continue to be staffed by the same surgeons that they have trusted since the opening of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery. The team also highlights that all nurse practitioners that work for the practice are fully licensed with at least ten years of experience in cosmetics. At the new Short Pump location, the office will be divided into two spaces: one for surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and facelift surgery, and another for patients of Dermlounge. The plastic surgeon is happy to be able to offer the men and women throughout the Virginia and Washington, D.C. area the same diverse array of cosmetic procedures and med spa treatments that their current patients have enjoyed for a decade.

Richmond Plastic Surgeon Offers Innovative “Gummy Bear” Breast Implants

Dr. Zemmel Offers Gummy Bear Implants

Dr. Neil J. Zemmel of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery offers his patients the teardrop-shaped Natrelle 410 breast implants for lower postoperative risks and often a more natural result.

Richmond, VA — Neil J. Zemmel, MD has recently completed advanced breast surgery training under Dr. Charles Randquist of Stockholm, Sweden, a plastic surgeon known for his excellent results using Natrelle® 410 shaped textured implants. According to Dr. Zemmel, the main purpose of this continuing education endeavor was to learn the specialized techniques of using the Natrelle® 410 style of breast implants. After participating in a live surgery with Dr. Randquist, the Richmond plastic surgeon says that he can bring skills back to his private Virginia plastic surgery practice to “provide [his] patients with the most gentle surgery, ultimately leading to less bruising, swelling, and much quicker recovery.” Dr. Zemmel is one of the few surgeons to offer Natrelle® 410 breast implants for cosmetic purposes in the Richmond region.

When women are considering breast augmentation, Dr. Zemmel reviews the wide range of options available so each surgery can be customized to meet the individual’s unique needs. Although there are many types of breast implants available, the board-certified plastic surgeon highlights that the Natrelle® 410 has some distinct advantages. Often referred to as the “gummy bear” implant, Dr. Zemmel says the Natrelle® 410 is made of a highly cohesive silicone filler material that is teardrop-shaped like an anatomically correct breast for exceptionally natural results. Due to the unique shape and textured surface, he highlights that patients typically do not experience a loss of upper pole fullness. The implant also involves a higher cross-linking in its silicone material, which Dr. Zemmel explains can preserve the contour of the breast while minimizing the risk of shifting or rippling. As an added benefit, most of Dr. Zemmel’s breast augmentation patients who choose Natrelle® 410 implants experience lower rates of capsular contracture and implant rupture.

According to Dr. Zemmel’s office, there are “12 different [Natrelle® 410] models of varying heights, widths, and projections to suit your unique body structure, frame, and goals.” Using state-of-the-art VECTRA® 3-D Imaging technology, women can virtually “try on” different implants, allowing his patients to make well-informed decisions. Many of Dr. Zemmel’s patients ultimately choose the Natrelle® 410 because of the unique advantages these breast implants can provide in addition to beautiful, natural-looking results.

Richmond Plastic Surgeon Offers Body Contouring After Teen’s Weight Loss

Dr. Zemmel Eliminate Excess Skin After Major Weight Loss

Dr. Neil J. Zemmel offers a young man who appeared on the TV show “The Doctors” free body contouring surgery after major weight loss to help complete his transformation.

Richmond, VA — On a recent episode of “The Doctors,” a young man from Virginia named Austin told the story of his weight gain and subsequent weight loss. Austin attributed his weight gain to a diet of fast food and spending his time playing video games instead of active sports. As a result, he was the target of school bullying, was constantly called nicknames, and weighed 324 pounds before making the decision to turn his life around. Hearing Austin’s story – and how he ultimately lost half of his bodyweight – Neil J. Zemmel, MD, FACS of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery was proud to help Austin with the final step of his weight loss journey.

According to the board-certified plastic surgeon, “The after-effects that many people may not realize is that dramatic weight loss often leaves the person with a significant amount of excess skin, even after all of these lifestyle changes.” Due to Austin’s healthier diet and new fitness routine, he was able to see dramatic results, but he still carried around ten pounds of excess skin. Dr. Zemmel highlights: “To help achieve a more tightened and toned appearance, body contouring after major weight loss can be the final step to transforming the body and boosting self-confidence.”

For example, a body lift (otherwise known as a belt lipectomy) is designed to tighten excess skin from the lower abdomen, back, pubic area, and lateral thighs. Drs. Zemmel notes that after losing a significant amount of weight, patients often have excess skin sagging from these areas of the body. A body lift can eliminate this excess skin as well as contour these areas for results that look more toned and athletic. Some patients at Richmond Aesthetic Surgery choose to combine a body lift with an arm lift or a thigh lift for a more comprehensive rejuvenation. For patients like Austin, body contouring after major weight loss can help them look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside after working so hard to improve their health and their lives.
