Scarless Rhinoplasty Philosophy

Plastic Surgeon located in Beverly Hills, CA

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.

Our philosophy is simple: A rhinoplasty shouldn’t look obvious and shouldn’t inflict permanent scars. It should be your scarless secret…forever.

If you are considering a rhinoplasty, it's important to know you aren’t alone. There are more than 220,000 rhinoplasty surgeries performed every year in the United States. But unfortunately, over 50,000 of them are revision surgeries, so picking the right surgeon the first time is extremely important.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging surgical procedures. Yet most scarless rhinoplasty surgeons also perform Facelifts, Eyelid surgery, Breast Implants, Brazilian Butt Lifts, Liposuction, Hair Transplants and Reconstructive Surgeries. But without total discipline and immersion in a craft, total mastery is very difficult. Bruce Lee says it best: "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times." With this in mind, we are the only practice in the USA whose entire surgical practice is dedicated to Scarless Noses a.k.a. Closed (Endonasal) Rhinoplasty.

Actresses, actors, models, entertainers and athletes routinely choose closed scarless rhinoplasty as their method of enhancing their nose and improving their breathing because of its obvious superior advantages over a traditional “open” rhinoplasty. With Scarless Rhinoplasty, we look at the face like a beautiful painting. From time to time, beautiful paintings need to be restored or enhanced. Just as a museum curator would never make a cut down the middle of the painting to make these restorations, neither should a rhinoplasty surgeon inflict a scar in the middle of a face when it is not necessary.

We find that most of our patients desire refinement or enhancement, rather than significant change to their noses. We aim to tweak and subtly enhance the nose, without causing the post-operative “unrecognizable” phenomena when too much has been done to the nose. You will still look like you, just the refined version. We often joke that God did a fabulous job but was just in a little rush – so we are here to help finish finessing the painting.

But one truth we never forget is that every nose is unique, and so should be every surgery as well. We do not believe in a “one nose fits all” strategy most surgeons practice based on the mathematically engineered textbook definitions of the “perfect anatomical nose.” We believe rhinoplasty is more art than science, and the art is about balancing your nose to your face.

Over 65 years later, the tradition of Scarless Noses is still well and alive with Dr. Deepak Dugar who carries the Scarless Nose Legacies of Dr. Raj Kanodia (in practice from 1979 – current) and Dr. Morey Parkes (in practice 1949 – 1988). Using time-tested traditions carried down for decades, the Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty Center™ uses the ideal solution to enhancing and refining a nose. We avoid the “reconstructive mentality” of most “open” rhinoplasty surgeons who inflict a scar at the base of the nose. With devotion to the art, respect for our patients, and true artistic integrity, we create an exceptional experience with outstanding outcomes for all of our patients.

The Five Things I Hate

About Rhinoplasty

1. Unnecessary external cuts and scars (99% of surgeons perform “open” rhinoplasty inflicting a scar at the base of the nose)
2. Pinched Nasal Tip (when too much cartilage is removed and/or no support is provided causing a collapse of the tip)
3. “Ski Slope” Profile (when too much cartilage and bone is removed from the profile causing a severe scooping of the nose)
4. “Miss Piggy” Nose (when the tip is lifted too much)
5. Worsened or Unimproved Breathing (when nasal breathing and structural function of the septum, turbinates and nasal vales are not adequately addressed)

These five things are constantly in my mind during every consultation and every surgery. This is where being the only surgeon in the USA whose entire surgical practice is dedicated to Scarless Rhinoplasty allows a superior advantage of finding the perfect delicate balance of meaningful refinement to a nose without drastic uncomfortable change. Natural noses are mandatory in my practice.

“Often, I will tell patients, ‘your nose looks great with your face. Don’t touch it!’ This might sound shocking from a nose surgeon, but I believe in integrity over operating. Not everyone needs surgery. And of those who do, not everyone qualifies for a scarless nose surgery (i.e. some severe revision cases or reconstructive cases). I am brutally honest with my nasal assessment, so rest assured if you are accepted as a Scarless Nose patient, it is because I am passionate and excited about the result I will deliver for you. “

– Dr. Deepak Dugar


“The only thing I get accused of is doing too little to a nose; and I’m totally okay with that. This accusation happens rarely but when it does, I’ll be the first to admit I’m Mr. Conservative with my scarless noses. I do noses day in and day out, so I have learned that conservatism is the safest route for natural, long lasting results that both patients and I are thrilled with for years to come.”

– Dr. Deepak Dugar
