A lot of surgeons are comfortable with using scarring procedures when it comes to performing Rhinoplasty, but Dr. Dugar goes above and beyond for his patients. At Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty Center™ located in Los Angeles, CA, Dr. Dugar offers Closed Scarless Rhinoplasty for his patients.
Closed Scarless Nose™ Rhinoplasty Q & A
Can my nose job be done using scarless rhinoplasty?
Most surgeons are more comfortable with the “open” rhinoplasty approach that leaves a scar at the base of the nose. This could become a motivating factor for them to convert you to an “open” instead of a closed rhinoplasty because it is easier for them to perform. But Dr. Deepak Dugar, who specializes in scarless rhinoplasty, says that may not necessarily be in your best interest. That’s because closed rhinoplasty offers the same results without unnecessary scarring. As such, always ask if your nose job can be done using the scarless rhinoplasty technique instead.
Can I see rhinoplasty before and after photos similar to my own nose?
When contemplating surgery to change the shape of your nose, it is extremely important to be able to visualize the changes that will impact your face permanently. While facial morphing software and image design are important, be sure to request for closed rhinoplasty before and after photos at the surgeon's office. This will show you realistic results based on actual people who underwent the same journey you are considering. Digitally manipulated images of your nose do not give the full picture because technology allows us to contrive almost any result, even if it is not surgically achievable. So be dubious of morphing software and put more trust in actual rhinoplasty before and after images.
As one of the most trusted Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Dugar has an extensive archive of closed rhinoplasty before and after case studies on hand. By showing you various rhinoplasty before and after shots, you can better appreciate both the significant and subtle improvements a nose job can offer.
Dr. Dugar reminds patients to always ask to review closed rhinoplasty before and after photos prior to signing up for a scarless nose job.
Why is it important to find the best rhinoplasty surgeon whose aesthetic eye you agree with?
Most surgeons are trained to have a scientific and calculated approach to surgery. As such, they think mathematically and look at the nose like an engineering project. They use classical formulas and angles to construct the “perfect nose” on every patient. But this leads to repetitive workshop results with every patient getting the same surgery.
The best rhinoplasty surgeon knows there’s more to nose jobs than what medical textbooks prescribe. We agree there is a mechanical component to scarless rhinoplasty—especially with open or reconstructive scarless rhinoplasty—but for a primary nose that has never been operated on before, it is much more of an art than a science. Artistry is mandatory to perform this type of surgery because when the math doesn’t add up, the best rhinoplasty surgeon in the world relies on his/her trained eye and aesthetic sensibilities to make up the difference.
The best rhinoplasty surgeon also recognizes that one millimeter can make or break the surgical outcome. That’s why they have a well-thought-out strategy for executing their vision for your ideal nose. To help develop their artistic touch, the best rhinoplasty surgeon in the world typically trains under renowned practitioners who specialize in nose jobs. Dr. Dugar, for example, was mentored by world-famous experts such as Dr. Raj Kanodia, Dr. Jean Louis Sebagh, Dr. Bruce Feldman, Dr. Eugene Tardy, Dr. Norman Pastorek, and Dr. Sherrel Aston.
Remember that the best rhinoplasty surgeon in the world has an aesthetic philosophy that guides all the nose jobs he or she performs. Always ask yourself if the surgeon’s artistic vision is aligned with your own.
Did my rhinoplasty consultation feel forced or rushed?
This is extremely important. Scarless rhinoplasty is a surgery that requires patience. For the best rhinoplasty surgeon in the USA, a scarless nose job is the ultimate test of his or her surgical skills. Sometimes a challenging nose shape will require an extra hour or two because of repeat stitching, maneuvering, or shaving. If your surgeon seems rushed or forceful during your rhinoplasty consultation, imagine what the surgery itself might be like when you aren’t even awake to ask questions. The best rhinoplasty surgeon in the USA doesn’t rush things and will take the extra time needed—especially in the operating room—to deliver the optimal outcome for you.
Will closed rhinoplasty also fix my breathing problems?
As an otolaryngologist and an ear, nose, and throat-trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Dugar specializes in internal nasal surgery of the septum, turbinates, and nasal valves. Your nasal breathing issues will be assessed from the very first consultation and if there is an anatomical problem (such as a deviated septum, inferior turbinate hypertrophy, or nasal valve collapse), it can be addressed independently via functional surgery or in conjunction with cosmetic nasal surgery via septorhinplasty. Both nasal breathing correction and cosmetic nasal surgery will be done via closed rhinoplasty which will be done Scarless.
Is Scarless Nose™ closed rhinoplasty right for you?
Whether you are considering changing the shape of your nose or fixing the breathing of your nose, or both, Dr. Dugar can help. We hope you find this site to be an informative resource for the options available to you today. It’s very hard to find the best nose surgeons, especially in a world of marketing, PR, social media, paid advertisement, and over-hype, but we don’t believe these things make a strong foundation for a reputable scarless rhinoplasty practice. There are more than 220,000 scarless rhinoplasty surgeries performed every year in the United States—but about a quarter of them are revisions, thus highlighting the importance of choosing the right surgeon.
A successful scarless rhinoplasty depends on your surgeon’s mastery of the science and art behind this procedure. High-level expertise can only be achieved when singular dedication and concentration are given to a task whether it's playing soccer, playing the piano, or performing closed rhinoplasty. When a pianist decides to master the piano, there is a 99% chance she will forgo playing all other instruments and purely dedicate herself to the piano. When a soccer player decides to go professional, she will forgo playing all other sports and purely dedicate herself to soccer. However, when surgeons decide they want to become the best at a given procedure, most will still perform other surgeries—usually due to financial considerations. This is where we differ. Like the professional pianist and soccer player, Dr. Dugar has decided to forgo all other surgeries in order to purely dedicate himself to the mastery of Scarless Nose™ closed rhinoplasty.
But your success in scarless rhinoplasty relies on a multitude of factors. There are hundreds of small variables involved in the healing of a nose after an operation. The overall goal is to create a functional, structurally sound, and cosmetically appealing nose that balances the face and allows you to breathe better.
It is, however, important to discuss the idea of the “perfect nose.” Almost no one has it and even if the concept of a “perfect nose” existed, it would have virtually no basis in reality or surgery. Yes, we can create almost any shape nose– but would it match your face? We, as a society, often see celebrities and idealize their cosmetic features without realizing part of our idealization is the aura of their lifestyle, success, fame, or sex appeal – not just their nose. So even if you think Bella Hadid’s nose looks amazing, it may or may not be the type of scarless rhinoplasty that fits your face. We are not aiming to create a “perfect nose,” just one that fits your face beautifully and allows you to breathe better – without any external cuts or scars ever.
Not every patient is a candidate for Scarless Nose™ surgery. Some major revision surgeries or reconstructive nose jobs may require traditional “open” rhinoplasty. Dr. Dugar will tell you whether or not you are a candidate for Scarless Nose™ surgery with full transparency and honesty. Achieving the best possible outcome for your nose is far more important than whether or not you end up doing the surgery with us. Whether it's in your best interest to undergo an “open” rhinoplasty elsewhere or to not undergo any surgery at all, we will be the first to let you know. If you’ve never had prior work done on your nose, you are almost always a great candidate for closed scarless rhinoplasty by Dr. Dugar.
