I had rhinoplasty with Dr Deepak Dugar two weeks ago. I'm beyond thrilled with the results, and apparently once the swelling subsides it should look even better. I had been contemplating rhinoplasty for many years because of a wide bridge and bump in my side profile. I met with a couple of plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills and made the easy decision to proceed with Dr. Dugar. He greets you with smile and is very disarming. If you consult with more than one surgeon, you will immediately feel the difference- although he has an incredible reputation, he does not have an ego. He told me that my nose was actually broken which made the decision to proceed even easier. He assured me that he will not change your face, he will change the part of your nose that you don't like and create a better version of your same nose. This was exactly what I wanted, and this is what he delivered! As someone who is a mother and business person, my biggest fear was to wake up with a severe change to my face that would prompt people to ask if I had something done. Although it's a huge change for me, considering I now have a beautiful nose that I love from all angles.
I was anxious for the surgery since I had never been through one before. It could not have been easier and painless, the procedure ended up taking less than two hours but you literally wake up minutes after with no pain. I personally experienced no pain or discomfort (I did not have any breathing work done, just rhino). I took two extra strength Tylenol before bed the first night to ensure I didn't wake up with any pain. I didn't experience any pain during recovery, I did swell and experience bruising around my eyes which lasted a week and a half. When my cast was removed on day 7 I was so so so so pleased with the results. I still had some bruising but was able to cover it up with makeup at that point. I went out to lunch that same day and then left the next day for a two week vacation. I'm still icing three times a day, and excited for the final results.
Cannot recommend Dr Dugar and his team more, they are wonderful and I will refer anyone I know to him.
