THE FACE OF PLASTIC SURGERY – TERRI ZOMERLEI, M.D. – CENTRE FOR PLASTIC SURGERY
2060 EAST PARIS AVE. SE, STE. 150, GRAND RAPIDS, MI 49546 | 616-454-1256
Dr. Terri Zomerlei, of the Centre for Plastic Surgery, isn’t your typical surgeon. A West Michigan native, Dr. Z first worked in health care as a nursing assistant, and then as a surgical physician assistant. But when this mother of two faced a life-changing event that rekindled her passion to be a surgeon, she went for it. After graduating from Michigan State University’s medical school at the top of her class, she completed a six-year surgical training program at Ohio State University.
When asked why she chose to join the Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Z responded, “It felt comfortable and genuine from the moment I walked through the door. The practice has an impeccable reputation for providing exceptional care. Aesthetic surgery shouldn’t be about imposing an ‘ideal’ beauty. It’s about helping patients discover what makes them look and feel their best — and that’s exactly what the Centre for Plastic Surgery does.”
