The ScarlessNose Institute of Beverly Hills stands on the shoulders of 70+ years of experience and expertise. What has separated my practice from the others is that my standards for myself and my practice are above excellence. Just two millimeters above excellence can make a practice go from excellent to outstanding. I learned these concepts on mastery from the book The Talent Codeby Daniel Coyle. I recommend this book to anyone who is considering mastery in any field.
Talent Compression Zone
In this book, he analyzes what makes certain areas in the world or certain stores and businesses that are able to produce so much raw talent throughout the ages. One particular example he analyzed is the talent hotbed of Brazil for soccer. Since the 1950, Brazil has consistently had the most successful players in the world. The reason is in their training. They started practicing futsal, which is playing soccer in small spaces. Due to the small space, the Brazilian players touch the ball 6 times more and need more precise handling so they obtained players who had 600% more practice. Dr. Dugar has created this talent compression zone by training under a legendary master who has performed only closed rhinoplasty as 100% of his surgical practice. By focusing on only one procedure, Dr. Dugar has achieved mastery of the closed scarless rhinoplasty quicker and more precise than any other doctor.
During the Renaissance, apprenticeship was how you became a master of a craft. Children were doing hands on learning of a craft from the bottom up. They would only practice this one craft form and after a time surpass their mentors to be the new master. Similarly, Dr. Dugar positioned himself in a modern-day Renaissance mentorship program. He travelled to Beverly Hills – the mecca of beauty and cosmetics- to study the craft under Dr. Raj Kanodia who studied under Dr. Morey Parkes, who studied under Dr. Howard Diamond, who studied under Dr. Irving Goldman, who studied over Dr. Jacques Joseph.
Kaizen is Japanese for continuous improvement. Dr. Dugar has modeled this practice himself to constantly strive to improve. He is constantly innovating his surgical process and collaborating with colleagues around the world to learn new technologies and methods. Dr. Dugar understands that he owes it to his patients to constantly innovate and improve to create the best practice in the world.
