Current Trends in Rhinoplasty
What has decades of new rhinoplasty techniques taught us? A tremendous amount. We have learned about how to create a nose that fits the face. We have learned how to create a nose that functions well. We have learned how to get people to heal faster and get back to work earlier. We have learned how to minimize the chance that we will have to do a “touch up” later on.
The New Nose is not a dramatic shift from the past. It is a nose that is focused on looking natural, and not having any pointy areas. It is focused on not turning the tip up too much. It is focused on not “scooping out” the nose too much. All of the above can make the nose look fake and unnatural. Smooth contours and appropriate size of the tip are keys to the procedure.
Also, as the effects of improved sleep and exercise are more and more evident as time passes, rhinoplasty surgeons have become more and more sensitive to making sure the nose can function well. I performed a study that looked at rhinoplasty patients (over a 7 year span) that was published in the JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery Journal last November which shows that using certain techniques, we can improve breathing in rhinoplasty patients consistently.
Rhinoplasty is an art and a science. I have published over 40 research studies and book chapters on Facial Plastic Surgery, and about half of those have helped advance the field of rhinoplasty. There is a tremendous amount of literature on rhinoplasty, and more and more is learned by the year. This has helped shaped my approach to create the best result for the patient.

clients have to say
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 workouts 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 rhinoplasty was done to correct a severely deviated septum.
