I had a lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning done here. Not a day goes by that I don't look at my face and regret it. The doctor and staff are very nice and professional, but the result looks unnatural and people can tell I've had surgery - new people I've gotten closer to have asked me about it as well as other friends. From afar you can't tell so I tend to want to keep people at a distance. It psychologically has made me more insecure than before. There are days I don’t want to wake up. I was hoping to just look refreshed and it would not be noticeable. After the full payment went through, at the pre-op visit, the doctor mentioned that he throws in a temporary filler to help with the results. This was alarming to me - a result that may require temporary injections on an annual basis which costs around 1K. This says something about the confidence in which this surgery will be successful. Why wasn't this mentioned in the consultation? Immediately after the surgery I could see the sharp, hard line between the operated and non-operated area which starts at the corner of my eye and goes down to the mid-face due to the procedure. As time has gone by that line has gotten worse instead of better. Maybe the results would be blended better with the filler, but had I known it would be needed to have seamless results I would’ve not had the procedure. I had already committed to the time-off and the payment went through so I just hoped it wouldn’t be needed. Since then, I've gone to several other doctors for consultations and the cost to try and blend the results better permanently would cost more than the price of this surgery and are more error-prone.
Too much fat was taken out - and for the side where more fat was removed (the sides are uneven), I feel a slight amount pressure on and off every day - like someone is pressing on my upper cheek. I’m unable to think about it even if I don’t look in a mirror. I guess I can be happy my bags are gone - when I look in the mirror I don't see them, I see the surgery. I’m writing this review so other people know that having this procedure with this doctor may just lead you down the path to more surgeries with more cost and more problems. I wish I read a review like this from someone else on this site.

Dr. Zoumalan is not only the best eye doctor he is the only one who I would ever let touch my face, the office staff is always so accommodating and Dr. Zoumalan always takes his time to inform you on any process, what to expect, how to maintain, and I always feel comfortable in his hands . more »

So far I have only had one appointment with the doctor, but he was very open and honest and most of all conservative with his treatment recommendations which I think is critical in dealing with cosmetic procedures. He was very honest and I will definitely be seeing him again in the near future for fillers and possibly Botox which I have yet to try. Plus, he has a great bedside manner which I think means a lot when people are dealing with trying to look their best without overdoing it. more »

Dr Christopher Zoulmalan and his staff are amazing. I suffered a bells palsy episode 20 years ago which weakened the Eye brow and lid muscles on the left side of my face. My eyes were becoming increasingly asymmetrical as one side drooped (Ptosis) and the other side --brow and lid raised to compensate for the droop! Ugh! Dr. Zoulmalan was very kind and sounded so competent and confident which was reassuring to me because having something done on my face, especially around my eyes, was scary! He did everything he said he would do and I am very happy with the outcome. -- he even loosened the muscle on the right brow to increase the results! He took the time to explain everything and also to make sure I had realistic expectations. I even had this done the week before Thanksgiving and he came into the office Thanksgiving morning a week later for my one-week post op appointment --- which especially appreciated because I live 50 miles from his office and there was no traffic that morning!!! .... oh and did I mention he is a perfectionist??!!!! Thank you Dr. Zoumalan!! more »

Originally, I thought I had ptosis which caused my left eye appear to be much smaller than my right eye. So I found Dr. Zoumalan on Realself. His staff is really nice and immediately, they set me up for a skype consultation. It went well, I booked the surgery right away.
The day before the surgery, I went in and Dr. Zoumalan did a careful measurement of my eyes, then he told me I don't have a ptosis, what I need is an Asian double eyelid surgery to remove some extra skin. I was so shocked at first, but he is REALLY gentle and caring. I decided to trust him and told him I want to have an epicanthoplasty as well to open the inner corner of my eyes ( this is a popular procedure in Asia countries). He said he is not comfortable with leaving a scar around my eyes, but he would try his best to remove the excess skin to reduce the distance of my eyes.
The day of the surgery, I am very lucky to be the first patient. The staff even offered me a mint cake given me empty stomach. I did't feel much pain during the surgery (I have high pain tolerance though), the hard one is when he was doing some anesthesia and it hurt a little. After a while, I heard he saying, " This is perfect. This is perfect." (He is cute:D) I was of course really glad to hear that and he knew how stressed out I was, so he tried his best to calm me down and I appreciate that.
I had a rhinoplasty scheduled with another doctor which happens to be his friend, he then made a call to tell my rhino doctor to be gentle with my eyes with the general anesthesia. (So sweet!)
At first, I thought my eyelid is too large (due to the swelling), it didn't feel that natural for the first month, Dr. Zoumalan told me to be patient and wait for at least three months. And it did come down a lot! I absolutely LOVE my results! It looks so natural to me and everything has been healing well. He even managed to open the inner corner of my eyes without leaving any scars! What can I say? I couldn't be happier!
I am always going to be grateful for finding Dr. Zoumalan and for going through this journey with him. He made such an impact on my life.
Thanks, doctor!
I have included a before/after photo, the top two are my previous eyes. It looks worse actually, I felt like I can't really open my left eye all the time.
Hope my experience helps! Dr. Zoumalan is really an eyelid expert.

I highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan! Initially, I was only seeking a surgeon that could operate skillfully, to achieve maximum results. Not only was I beyond happy with my results, but I was pleasantly surprised by his expertise and friendliness. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and professional. Dr. Zoumalan was excellent! Results are important, but I received more than I anticipated, I found a place that makes post-op visits a treat! more »

I initially went into Dr. Zoumalan for a consultation for my eyes. I ended up not only having an Upper Lid Blepharoplasty with Dr. Zoumalan but have also found my botox/ filler injector for life!! Even If you do not need eye surgery Dr. Zoumalan does fabulous botox, and I recommend him to all my friends! It finally nice having a doctor I can trust with my injectables! more »

I have been seeing Dr. Zoumalan in his office for about two years now for Botox an filler injections around my face and eyes. He is sweet, down to earth, professional , and precise at the work he does. Every time I leave feeling better about the way I look and am impressed by his care. Everything about the experience meets and exceeds my expectations, from the ease of making the appointment, to the minimal waiting time, and excellent care from all his staff! Most of all I enjoy looking natural and refreshed, not like 'I had something done.' I highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan. more »

When choosing a plastic surgeon, please do your research on whom you let touch your face. I had eyelid surgery years ago and they removed my excess skin without addressing my droopy lids. I did not know that there was an option to fix that and I was stuck with droopy eyelids for years until my neighbor kindly recommended me to see Dr. Zoumalan. He was quick to diagnose and he was so gentle and down to earth, but one amazing surgeon! My eyes opened up to the way they looked when I was younger and I cannot tell you how my life has changed since having my ptosis surgery. Dr. Zoumalan is extremely talented and an amazing specialist. I wish I had met him earlier! . more »

Dr. Zoumalan was kind, attentive, very professional and did exactly what I wanted. I thought him, and his staff, were wonderful. I have worked with other plastic surgeons for my injectables, and he was the first person to do a fabulous job. The office was super clean, parking was easy, my appointment began on time and I left the office completely satisfied. I will absolutely return. more »

I finally decided to have my droopy lids taken care of. They were both bothering me, and my right lid was becoming worse with time. Everyone was always asking me if I was sick or why I had not slept. I did not have any recommendations on me so I found Dr. Zoumalan based on my online search. He was the real deal when it came to eyelid surgery. He knew my diagnosis, and was able to take care of me with a minor surgery. The swelling lasted for a few weeks, but it got better week to week. I was able to go to back to work in a little over a week. I am thrilled with my results and cannot say enough amazing things about the doctor and his really incredibly nice staff. more »

I would like to highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan for your next eyelid surgery. I inherited a heavy upper lid from both parents which got worse as I aged. It started to obstruct my vision and altered my appearance. I sought help from Dr. Zoumalan who was professional, and very attentive to listening to my concerns, and on top of it an excellent surgeon! The surgical staff were also excellent and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I am SO glad I got it done, my eyes look great! Thanks Dr. Z. more »

I love Dr Zoumalan. He is amazing with everything cosmetic for the face (fillers, botox, eye lid surgery). He has always been so attentive, kind, and meticulous in his practice. The office and the staff are the greatest. more »

I just finished healing from a surgery performed by Dr. Zoumalan, and I am so happy with my results. I have had droopy eyelids for as long as I can remember. The extra skin, looseness, and sagging made it almost impossible to look youthful or even wear makeup. Eyeliner and mascara would smear all over my eyelids. I booked a consultation with this doctor to see what could be done about it. Dr. Zoumalan's attention to our consultation really struck me. He went out of his way to explain the ins and outs of the procedure and exactly how it would work to correct my droopy eyelids and extra skin. I did not want a superficial overview of the procedure, and the surgeon broke it down for me. I knew there would be some pain, but it was all worth it. This was the makeover that I have been needing. I owe my amazing surgeon all of the thanks in the world for my new look. . more »
