Dr. Joe Niamtu III

11319 Polo Place

Second Place: Dr. Travis Shaw, Stony Point Surgery Center

Third Place (Tie): Dr. John Zinsser, Zinsser Plastic Surgery; Dr. Neil J. Zemmel, Richmond Aesthetic Surgery; Dr. Michael Godin

Dr. Joe Niamtu makes cosmetic facial surgery — everything above the neck — sound so simple. “If something sags, we lift it, if something is too big we make it smaller, if something is too small we make it bigger and so on,” he says in an email. But his patients testify that he does much more than that: He changes lives. An author and industry innovator, Niamtu is known for his compassion, having performed surgeries pro bono for people suffering from burns, gunshots, war injuries and congenital deformities. Drs. Travis Shaw, John Zinsser, Neil J. Zemmel and Michael Godin are also Richmond favorites for their surgical skills and considerate approach.
