Dr. Zoumalan can remove these osteomas without any visible forehead incisions using an endoscopic approach which uses tiny cameras through tiny incisions in the scalp. These are hidden well and can be used to scrape away the bone on the forehead without cutting into skin on the actual forehead.

There is very little downtime associated with this procedure. The procedure is outpatient. While it can be done under local anesthesia, Dr. Zoumalan prefers to use some sedation and do it in a controlled environment in the operating room.

The procedure has a relatively painless recovery, and there is very little bruising or swelling associated with it. Dr. Zoumalan can even be creative men and receding hairlines to use areas that won’t show the incisions and therefore have no signs of surgery.

  • 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.
