About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

John Zavell, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a leading Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon in the Northwest Ohio area. His practice specializes in facial and body rejuvenation through both non-surgical and surgical approaches. Procedures range from facelifts, eyelid surgery and nasal reshaping to breast augmentation and body contouring, including patients with massive weight loss. Non-surgical approaches include skin care and skin peels and CoolSculpting for removing stubborn excess fat. Regardless of the procedure Dr. Zavell recommends, he will emphasis with each patient that he strives for natural, harmonious, and realistic outcomes. Dr. Zavell believes that cosmetic consultations should be converted into individualized care plans tailored to patient wishes. Time tested and reliable approaches are not sacrificed for the latest trend. This is not to suggest that new technologies are not frequently evaluated, but Dr. Zavell only wishes to employ those devices and procedures that yield natural and reproducible results. By individualizing care for each person, Dr. Zavell will respect individual wishes and design a treatment plan tailored to that person.
