Although Dr. Zoumalan has a large aesthetic practice, he feels that reconstruction of nasal and facial defects after cancer or trauma helps him in his aesthetic nasal surgeries as well. Conversely, his knowledge of anatomy and nasal physiology from his aesthetic background help him when he recreates nasal anatomy that has been changed due to cancer.

Nasal Reconstruction Surgery Results

Here are some examples of patients who underwent reconstruction by Dr. Zoumalan:

Creating a new nose is very different than cosmetically shaping a pre-existing nose. It also requires a high level of artistry and is a challenge.

Dr. Zoumalan performs reconstruction of the nose in a way which recreates the nose in a natural way. He also ensures that patients breathe well after surgery.

Post Nasal Reconstruction Surgery Care

  1. As with all incisions, keep ointment on the incision at all times.
  2. Often Dr. Zoumalan will have a small dressing on the wound which you should keep on the incision for 48 hours. You can then take it off and let water run over it.
  3. Keep your head elevated. Use at least two pillows.
  4. If your eye is swollen, you can keep it cool with frozen peas, but please do not put anything cold on the actual reconstructed area, as we want blood to really flow to it.
  5. Above all, take it easy.  No heavy exercise, swimming, or strenuous activity.

Dr. Zoumalan and his staff will guide you through the entire process.  They will make it easy for you.

Where is the surgery performed?

Most patients undergo the procedure in Dr. Zoumalan’s office under local anesthesia. There is rarely need for a higher level of anesthesia. It is a comfortable experience throughout, and Dr. Zoumalan makes sure of this.

Testimonials

  • 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!

  • 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 had a Face and Neck Lift on December 3rd, 2014. Dr. Zoumalan does excellent work! He is very thorough in explaining the procedure, and has an excellent bedside manner. I am so happy with my result. I would highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan.

  • So when I met with Richard Zoumalan, I gave him a picture of me when I was 42, and I said, “That’s what I want. Is that possible?” And he said, “Yes!” He explained what he’d do, and how he would do it. I had surgery less than a month ago, and amazingly, I look almost exactly like me, only about 25 years younger.

    Past Life Love
  • 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.
