Dr. Zoumalan is one of the very few surgeons in the world with his
level of training and research in nasal and facial surgery. Along with award-winning research, Dr. Zoumalan has authored and published over 50 original research articles and book chapters and is the founder of both the Rhinopedia ® as well as the Natural Structure Rhinoplasty ®

Because the nose is an organ which gives both form to the face as well as provides function by breathing, this is a highly delicate surgery which Dr. Zoumalan performs with a unique level of artistry and medical judgment. Similar to a classical painting, there must be harmony between the nose and the rest of the face. The goal of Rhinoplasty is for one to appreciate your eyes and your beauty and not have any attention drawn to aspects of your nose.

Pasha-ChapterDr. Zoumalan is a leader in the field of understanding how breathing is affected by Rhinoplasty. He has performed extensive research on this subject and is one of few surgeons in the world to ever publish medical research studies on this topic. With this knowledge, he structures the outside and inside to enhance both the form and function of your nose. His goal is to give you a nose that looks natural and breathes naturally for a lifetime.

  • 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.
