Los Angeles (I-Newswire) December 4, 2013 - Dr. Richard Zoumalan is a facial plastic surgeon who specializes in nose, face, and neck procedures for aesthetic or reconstructive purposes. Not only is he a renowned aesthetic surgeon with his own practice in Beverly Hills, his background as an artist also gives him a unique perspective on reconstructive surgery and allows him to approach each patient both critically and empathetically.

This hospital aims to serve the underprivileged community, often providing charitable care. Dr. Zoumalan is a proponent of natural healing and reconstruction, and favors geometrically moving skin to cover trauma wounds and incisions to make affected areas look as natural as possible.

His work at Harbor-UCLA also benefits aspiring young surgeons at the university, where he acts as a Voluntary Instructor. All his procedures are learning opportunities for the next generation of facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

Dr. Zoumalan's exceptional work has received numerous awards from publications. Vitals recently named him "Top Plastic Surgeon" of 2013, an honor granted to less than 3% of all surgeons in the US.
