I honestly could not be any happier, Dr Zoumalan turned my whole life around! I had so many issues before I decided to have my Rhino Surgery with Dr Z. My breathing was horrible, I had constant sinus infections, I had trouble sleeping, tasting, the list goes on. Not to mention the huge bump on my nose, which as a young female, was my “biggest issue.” Somehow, even though I had thousands of issues with my nose, I put it off for so long because I was so nervous about having surgery. After the worst episode of sinus infection, I started looking into finding a surgeon. I met a handful of surgeons, until I landed in the hands of Dr Zoumalan. He made me feel so confident about undergoing rhino surgery, he showed me a projection of how my nose would look, explained the whole surgery, and went into detail about what to expect. I went back to work 7 days after my surgery with little, to almost no sign of surgery, except for the fact that I had a beautiful nose and was already breathing about 80% better. Now, three months out, I can honestly say my breathing has gotten better by almost 100%. Thank you so much Dr Z!!!

I can not say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Zoumalan. I went to him for a Rhinoplasty in which I have been contemplating for several years. It wasn’t until I met with Dr. Zoumalan that I knew I was in the right hands. He was extremely kind and answered all my questions with ease. I was beyond satisfied with my results. My nose looks so natural. It was beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I am 4 months in from septoplasty and rhinoplasty by Dr. Richard Zoumalan. I went to 3 other doctors, and chose him because of his confidence, bedside manner, and ability to explain things in a way that makes sense. He also used my insurance for the breathing part, which made it affordable. He is an excellent doctor with excellent staff, and I am extremely happy with my results.

Dr. Richard Zoumalan performed an exceptional revisional rhinoplasty of my nose. I have a history of chronic sinusitis and have had several sinus surgeries and 2 rhinoplasties in hopes to correct my problem. My original rhinoplasy was done to correct a severely deviated septum. This surgery left me unable to breathe out of my nose. I had a second surgery where the surgeon used alar batton grafts to correct collapsed nasal valves.
Unfortunately, these grafts failed and with time became infected leaving me with a pollybeak deformity. These grafts were painful and I was in search of a surgeon that could help alleviate the pain and improve my breathing and overall look of my nose. After removing my splint and seeing my results for the first time, my nose looked better than I could have ever imagined. It brought tears to my eyes! I am incredibly happy with my results.

I recently went to Dr. Richard Zoumalan for a nose job and I could not be happier. Not only was he extremely professional and kind, he truly is the best at what he does. I met with many doctors in the area, but Dr. Richard Zoumalan is the only one who guaranteed me that I would still look like my self, but without that awful bump!
When I saw the results, I couldn’t believe how good it came out. It is by far the most natural looking nose job out there. Many of my collegues and friends keep telling me how good I look, but they cannot put there finger on what exactly I did. It has been a little more then 3 months and I couldn’t be happier! Anyone who is considering a nose job should go to Dr. Zoumalan….you will not be disappointed!!!

Dr. Zoumalan is truly a one of a kind doctor. He is very kind, knowledgeable and eased my stress before and throughout my whole procedure. If you’re in the search for a pioneer of a surgeon (In my humble option) and a super friendly and helpful staff in the Los Angeles area you need to look no further than the office of Elite Surgon Dr. Zoumalan. Both my wife and I have been nothing but impressed with his practice, demeanor, as well as expertise. I am very particular, detail oriented and was struck on just how well both Dr. Zoumalan services as well as the whole practice conducts their operation. I am forever grateful and thankful from Dr. Zoumalan. My breathing pattern through my nose (basically was nonexistent) is getting better every each day.

Dr. Zoumalan was outstanding – I had an incredible experience with him and would recommend him to anyone.

I broke my nose while playing basketball (lots of fun) and Dr. Zoumalan was able to see me right away. How often does that happen these days??

Thankfully I decided to go to him rather than go to the ER, as I would have been price-gouged in the ER and also forced to wait for who-knows-how-long with my nose bleeding all over myself. Thank G-d my friend recommended that I call Dr. Zoumalan instead.

He fixed my broken nose quickly and with not a single bit of pain – I couldn’t believe it. I was convinced this would be the most painful thing I’ve experienced, seriously. I don’t know how he pulled it off, but he put me under local anesthesia, put my nose back in place and was done in a very short period of time. I wasn’t troubled at all by the procedure, much to my surprise.

He was super patient and made me feel totally comfortable. He explained what we was doing in each step, and was organized and efficient. I also got the sense that Dr. Zoumalan is truly passionate about what he does – he seems to sincerely want to be a great surgeon for his patients. He is! And the fact that he is accommodating (saw me right away without any advance notice) at the same time, and not arrogant or curt at all (even though he’s obviously a very sharp guy), is quite unique. I felt extremely at ease the whole time.

If you ever happen to need nasal fracture repair of any sort, I would think there’s no better way to go.

My friend referred me to him because he did her rhinoplasty, and she was really happy with him. Another friend had a necklift with him and was also very pleased. Overall I’ve heard a lot of folks have had positive experiences and recommend him highly.

After undergoing Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty, I could not be happier with my results. Dr. Zoumalan has a true knack for achieving the natural look. I have many friends who have underwent the same surgeries with different surgeons and I have never seen results that compare to those of Dr. Zoumalan’s. I have received countless compliments on my nose and everyone comments on how natural it looks. I also cannot say enough about Dr. Zoumalan’s office staff. They made me feel extremely comfortable and took the time to explain every step of the process to me. Anytime I called in with a question, they were quickly responsive. The staff was also very accommodating to my busy work schedule. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Zoumalan to all my family and friends. He is simply the best!

I can not begin to explain how amazing, professional, and conservative Dr. Zoumalan is with his treatment. He is the best, and as a healthcare professional myself, I can say that you will be well taken care of and will also receive the best treatment. I was referred to him by one of my patients who worked with Dr. Zoumalan and I did all my research as well. I got a rhinoplasty and septoplasty done and it looks so natural. I am about 3 months from my surgery date and all bruising went away within 10 days of my surgery date. Quick recovery and its looking better every day! I am very fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Richard Zoumalan. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. You are in great hands with him and his accommodating staff. Last but not least, I can not fail to mention when Dr. Zoumalan took the time to see me and was even late to his meeting making sure that his patients come first! Thank you again.

Dr. Zoumalan is the best – If I could give him 10 stars, I would! He corrected a breathing problem that has been bothering me my entire life, straightened out my nose and refined the tip during the process. I am SO beyond pleased with the results and I’ll continue to see Dr. Zoumalan for all things related to the face. I couldn’t have made a better decision – the only regret I have is not doing this years ago. He has amazing bedside manner and made the entire process very easy.

Miracle worker would be an accurate description of Dr. Richard Zoumalan being that he performs non-invasive rhinoplasty that is not only painless, but took an hour, and corrected a problem that had bothered me for almost 30 years. If I didn’t see it for myself, I would have never believed it and I couldn’t be happier.

I had a botched nose job when I was 16 from a doctor that performed a surgical rhinoplasty to correct a breathing issue. The surgeon left me with a bridge of my nose that was that sloped dramatically, giving me a “pug” nose that lacked definition and symmetry. Like most people, I didn’t want to have surgery, and put an implant in which could become infected and is painful. I looked for alternatives and found perfect reviews for Dr. Richard Zoumalan and called his office.

You will find like I did that his staff is light hearted, kinda, caring and extremely knowledgable. It was simple to schedule and appointment with his office, and I was in within 4 days. The FIRST day I was in his office, a patient came in who had a face lift and was smiling letting the staff know how thrilled she was with the procedure. Next, a patient walked in who said “Everyone keeps asking, what looks different – because you look the best I have ever seen” That did it for me. I witnessed two patients in 10 minutes who made a point to express their gratitude for a job well done by Dr. Richard Zoumalan.

I met with Dr. Zoumalan who has more awards, accolades, and published articles from Major Medical Journals than any Doctor I have ever see – this man knows his stuff! He is also an artist (his art is on the walls), so he really sees the face though an artists eye which is very important to me – I knew I would be more than a technical “job”. Dr. Zoumalan explained he could give me the results I want with a “filler” and I would see the results immediately.

He was right. After some local numbing, and a little hand holding by his staff :), he began the injections and I I was very pleased to learn that not only did it not hurt, but it only took about 30 minutes to perform. There was some minor swelling, but nothing that hurt or was uncomfortable – You feel a little pressure from the injection, but that is really it – the MOST I felt was a tiny pinch, and I am a huge wimp! When I looked in the mirror, my nose was just the way I always imaged it and I was thrilled!

Dr. Zoumalan has incredible bedside manner, and explains everything along the way so you feel confident about the procedure. I could drive right after, and honestly, getting a blood test was more painful. I am SO HAPPY with the results and if you are thinking about getting your nose fixed, or cheeks raised or anything at all with your face, you have to see this man – he will only do what he feels will work, and is one of the rare medical professionals these days that is as talented as he is ethical and kind.

5 Stars across the board!

Let me first say I am the last guy to think about getting a nose job. Until one day when I was playing with my kid he threw his head back and bam… My face (and breathing) was changed forever. While I didn’t care as much about the crookedness of my nose… I did care that I could only breathe out of one nostril. Randomly my wife’s cousin, who had recently gotten a rhinoplasty procedure, came over for dinner. When she saw my nose and heard my problems breathing she encouraged me to call Dr. Zoumalan and at least see if he could do anything for me. She said her rhinoplasty procedure went better than she could have ever hoped for… Long story short, I met with Dr Zoumalan and he really impressed me. I ended up getting my septum fixed and my nose realigned. Not only can I breathe clearly outta both nostrils now but I look like my old self. It’s exactly what I wanted… To not look like I just had a nose job. Dr Zoumalan was an awesome doc who did an awesome job, I can’t recommend him enough.

Although i use yelp frequently, I’ve never felt the need to write my own review until now. I’ve wanted to get rhinoplasty since I was 10, but getting surgery scared me. More than 20 years later I finally felt I had to do it. My nose was very crooked (septum and tip). I had what you’d call a witches nose. After lots of research and 4 consultations with different doctors I chose Dr. Zoumalan. I am so happy I did! I can’t believe my nose is straight. I had septoplasty/rhinoplasty.

Here are the reasons I chose him: 1.) I found him the easiest to communicate with and felt he understood what I wanted. He listened to all my concerns and was honest with what was and was not possible. 2.) His work is very natural and I found his before and after pictures to have the best tip work which was one of my biggest concerns. 3) I was confident my breathing would not be compromised. 4) His staff/nurses were the most friendly. They also responded promptly to emails.

It’s been 2 months since my surgery. I still have some swelling to go, but it looks great! I’m relieved I picked the right doctor. My family is also very happy with my results. My mom likes to show everyone pictures on her phone of my new nose.

Had to get surgery after a very bad nasal fracture. Great doctor. Confident and down to earth. Always available for questions and consultations pre and post surgery. The office staff is fantastic as well.

I could not ask anything more of the charming Dr. Rich and his incredible staff. As someone with a major phobia of all things medical, I admittedly am not the easiest of patients and require major metaphorical hand-holding. Dr. Rich made me feel completely at ease every step of the way and I am so pleased with my results. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

Just want to give an update to my review since my procedure was done last year. I have gotten so many compliments on my nose. I have been able to breathe and sleep much better since the procedure. I have even referred friends and even strangers to Dr. Zoumalan! Everyone has only positive experiences. I’m so thankful I found such a brilliant doctor!

I consulted with several plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills and was finally referred to Dr. Zoumalan by a family friend. After consulting with Dr. Richard Zoumalan and listening to his explanation of what was necessary to correct my problem, I felt confident with Dr. Zoumalan as my plastic surgeon. With outrageous nervous tension I underwent my 2nd revision rhinoplasty on October 4, 2012. After surgery he took the time to call and check in on how I was doing. After removing my splint and seeing my results for the first time, my nose looked better than I could have ever imagined. It brought tears to my eyes! I am incredibly happy with my results. Dr. Zoumalans’ precise attention to detail assured a remarkable outcome. As a result of this wonderful experience, I have reconsidered my career goals and have initiated my desire to become a facial plastic surgeon. THANKS Dr. Zoumalan!!!

I was injured on January 7, 2012 in a mo-ped/scooter accident in Cozumel, Mexico. My entire body head to toe (literally) endured horrendous road rash, my nose broke & plenty more. The level of care I received from dr Zoumalan & his entire office was/is truly indescribable but I shall try! They began by monitoring my progress over the course of a few months as my skin was fragile (?) due to the recent healing. Each visit, Dr Zoumalan noted the thickness of skin on my nose as it required strength to perform surgery. On November 19, 2012 I had a Rhinoplasty with rib skin grafting at the summit surgical center in Beverly Hills.My recovery went really well, the entire office tended to my every random requests & unnecessary paranoid questions/concerns. It’s now been a year since my surgery & I’m slightly obsessed with how cute & small my nose is while it’s a perfect suit to my face!

It’s been a year since my septoplasty and rhinoplasty and I am extremely happy with my results.

Not only has my breathing dramatically improved, I am sleeping better than ever. I feel healthier and it has significantly changed my exercise routine. I can definitely push myself harder and my work outs are longer and more efficient. Best part is I don’t get that winded feeling or stuffy or runny nose while running. I didn’t realize how many aspects of my life would change after the surgery.

I could not be happier with my rhinoplasty as well. I really have to say my nose is perfect. It is very straight, natural looking, and most importantly no hump. It compliments my natural features and I am constantly getting compliments on how cute my nose is.

After so many consults with other surgeons, I knew Dr.Zoumalan was the one for me. He made me feel extremely comfortable, spent so much time with me, answered all my questions with confidence and honesty. I also have to say his staff goes above and beyond and are always available.They really guided me through the process.

I highly recommend Dr.Zoumalan!
