I can't express the joy I have after having Dr Christopher Zoumalan perform my under eyelid surgery. I had SEVERE puffy under eye bags and felt insecure with myself because people would always tell me I look tired. I finally decided to go on the hunt for the "perfect doctor". It took a lot of research and googling to find the right doctor and I'm glad I chose Dr Zoumalan and his team. He and his staff are the most humble people you will encounter in this industry. They make you feel welcomed and most importantly safe. When it comes down to choosing the right doctor to perform surgery on your face, I would recommend Dr. Zoumalan. Don't take a risk especially if it's to save a buck.

This surgeon is amazing! I came in looking to get surgery for the bags under my eyes, and he helped with all the questions I had, among more. He's very detailed in his instructions, and in his work. I'm very pleased with the outcome of the surgery, more so than I have been in YEARS regarding my confidence. Amazing work, very polite, and his staff are also incredibly helpful with anything you might need/ask of them. Will definitely be coming back for other procedures if the need arises.

If I could give Dr. Chris Zoumalan 10 stars I would. And these are the ten reasons why he deserves 10 stars: 1) He is compassionate and takes the time to listen and understand who you are. He made me feel like I was the most important person. 2) Same can be said for his staff and follow-up. Every person who walks through his door is made to feel like they are someone special. 3) His staff actually times your office visit realistically so you do not wait long. He and his staff are respectful of your time. 4) I first saw Dr. Zoumalan 3 years ago. I wanted to have injections, and after talking with me and consulting other doctors, he told me that injections or surgery at this time would not be wise due to a sinus condition that I had. He felt strongly that I needed to wait and that I should come back at a later date, and that he would waiver my consulting fee for the future. 5) Three years later I went back and before he did surgery he took the time to consult with my other doctors before we proceeded. 6) He explains the process in detail and the steps required for post surgery healing, and makes sure you are completely comfortable with everything before proceeding with surgery. 7) He and his staff re-arranged his surgery schedule to accommodate my schedule. 8) I had some swelling issues after my surgery due to my condition, and he made sure I was taken care of physically and emotionally with additional visits and follow-up calls. 9) I am 62, had upper and lower lid surgery and my eyes look exactly like they did 20 years ago. The result was so natural. Everyone keeps saying I look great - they think it is my skin and that I am taking care of myself. It's my eyes!! 10) Chris Zoumalan is genuine, devoted, and passionate about what he does, has impeccable credentials, truly cares about his patients, and his artistry made me feel wonderful!!

Dr Zoumalan is an excellent surgeon, very professional and because of all his years of training and practice experience, his surgical skills are extremely precise.I am very satisfied and impressed with the outcome of my lower eye bags surgical correction. I decided to have this surgery performed because I felt that I used to look older and had this "tired look " mainly in the mornings due to the bags under my eyes. As a dentist I was not feeling comfortable facing my patients every day looking like that. After the amazing result I got thanks to Dr Zoumalan I am feeling great. The post surgery recovery was fast and pain free.I strongly recommend Dr Zoumalan who in my opinion is one of the best ocular plastic surgeons in US . Thank you Dr Zoumalan.

I highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan. Ten weeks ago he performed a lower eyelid blepharoplasty with fat repositioning on me, and CO2 laser resurfacing around my eyes. The results are better than I could ever have expected. I have no trace of the prominent fat pads that bulged beneath my eyes. Also, Dr. Zoumalan and his staff were exceedingly patient with all my post surgery questions and contacted me daily the week after my procedure. The doctor's bedside manner is exceptional and based on my experience I have no hesitation in strongly recommending him to others searching for a highly skilled eyelid surgeon.

If I could give 10 stars I would. I'm one year out from my surgery - I did research for two years before pulling the trigger and it paid off: EXTREMELY natural results, stellar bedside manner, very high integrity, professional, respectable, kind, friendly and authentic demeanor from Dr. Zoumalan all the way through to his team - in particular, I had the pleasure of being assisted and cared for by Cristina Luna & Kimberly Hampton (worth their weight in gold), experienced no pain and two weeks downtime. I've also gotten under eye hollow filler injections, which I've had in the past by several others (with and without cannulas), and Dr. Zoumalan's deft hand has yet to leave a bruise, which is pretty remarkable. After his injections, I always just go about my day. This is a very honest, caring and exceptionally talented surgeon. Run don't walk to this practice if you want superior results.

After over a year of having consultations for my droopy eyelid and not being comfortable with any of the doctors I found Dr. Christopher Zoumalan.
When you know, you know. I was comfortable with him immediately and he did not dissappoint. From beginning to end my experience was out outstanding. He listens, he did exactly what he said he would do and the results were fantastic! I could not have possibly asked for more.
I was a nervous patient... he was very kind and considerate.
My droopy eye was fixed, he actually did both eyes and removed the excess skin to perfection - not to little and not too much. I could not be happier.

As I was trying to clean up my computer, I stumbled across old photos of me before my lower bleph. And holy cow I did not recognize myself! I am so happy with the results that I wanted to post a follow up review 2 years later. My biggest fear when getting surgery was long term results... sunken eyes, etc. And nope, everything is beautiful. I had surgery Oct 2015 and it is now Jan 2018. Dr. Z, if you're reading this, thank you again! This surgery altered my life and I am so thankful I did it. One of the best decisions I ever made.

I was looking for a surgeon to do a lower blepharoplasty (Eyebag surgery) and spent tons of time researching surgeons here on the West Coast. Finally, I decided to go with the best of the best, Dr. Zoumalan.

Dr. Zoumalan is just wonderful! He's knowledgeable, take the time to answer all your questions and truly cares. He eased my worries and made me feel 100% comfortable every step of the way. My results were absolutely amazing!! No more eyebags no more looking like I'm absolutely exhausted all the time. The best part is that it's so natural, you would never know I had any work done. I couldn't be happier! I've since gotten fillers and Botox with Dr. Zoumalman and have had the same experience, nothing but first class service and impeccable results. It's like a reunion every time I go in!

This review is not only for Dr. Zoumalan, but for his incredible staff, (both office and surgical)! This review would not be complete without mentioning them. The office staff are very warm, welcoming and they really make you feel comfortable from the minute you call to make your appointment for the end of your service and beyond. The surgical team our second to none and even though I was feeling nervous they made me feel completely at ease. Post surgery, I could not have received better care and I truly appreciate that.

Thank you so much for everything!

I had an upper lid blepharoplasty and a brow lift to correct my droopy eyelids. They were at the point where it was impairing my vision. I searched locally for an oculoplastic surgeon, but did not find anyone that I felt comfortable with to conduct the procedure. Then I found Dr. Christopher Zoumalan, he was professional, friendly, and took the time to meet with me and discuss my options. Even though I lived out of state, we did a Skype session where he explained to me the procedure, recover time, and cost for the procedure. I really felt comfortable and assured that he would be able to perform the surgery with no problem. After reviewing his website and looking very closely at the before and after photos from his patients who had the same procedure performed, I realized that I had finally found my surgeon that I can trust with my facial appearance! This procedure is very delicate to perform and cannot be trusted to just anyone. When I arrived at his office, I was greeted like family by his courteous and professional staff. They took me to the room where the procedure was going to be conducted and made me feel at ease. I wasn't as nervous as I had expected to be, and I think it's because I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Zoumalan.

After the surgery, I knew immediately that this procedure opened my eyes and took the weight off of my eyelids. The recovery time was a breeze and I was back at work two weeks later. I am so thankful to Dr. Zoumalan for the outstanding job that he did and I want everyone to know it. It has been a few months since the procedure and I'm hoping to visit Dr. Zoumalan's office soon so that they can take my photo again for the before and after surgery. It would be my honor if Dr. Zoumalan posted the before and after pictures of me on his website so that you all can see the fantastic job he performed on me. Thanks again Dr. Zoumalan!!
