Types of Scarless Rhinoplasty

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.

Introduction

The two types of nose jobs performed at Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty Center™ are scarless rhinoplasty and scarless functional rhinoplasty. To achieve impeccable results with the scarless nose technique, Dr. Dugar will take into account the unique facial features of each patient and their reasons for having the procedure.

Below are the various reasons a person may need scarless nose rhinoplasty, as well as examples of how a variety of patients may be treated with different types of rhinoplasty.

BOXY OR ROUND NOSE TIP (BULBOUS NOSE)

A boxy, round, or bulbous tip can be a major concern as it obscures the elegance of your nose. Enhancing your nose so it has a refined tip can make a subtle but extremely meaningful difference. Through scarless bulbous nose rhinoplasty, Dr. Dugar employs endonasal techniques that refine the size, shape, and positioning of your nasal tip cartilages. Sometimes it's as simple as carving and sculpting your current cartilage. Sometimes we need to reposition the tip cartilages with delivery and suture techniques. Sometimes we need to use small grafts to enhance the projection or rotation of the tip. Whatever procedure is required to enhance your nasal tip, it will be performed without scars so no one will know you had a bulbous nose job.

And in other situations, small grafts are needed to enhance the projection or rotation of the nose tip. Whatever procedure is required to enhance your nasal tip, it will be performed without scars so no one will know you had a nose job.

Wide Nasal Bones

Wide nasal bones can cause your nose to look wide and somewhat flat. These wide bones can also make the nose difficult to contour with makeup (a common trick makeup artists use to camouflage a wide nose).

With scarless nose rhinoplasty, we can permanently “contour” your nose by narrowing the nasal bones to achieve a more elegant and refined look from all angles. This scarlessnose job for wide noses can be achieved without incurring permanent marks and other blemishes, thus, keeping your procedure a secret.

Dorsal Hump (Bump on the Profile)

A dorsal hump, which is a bump on the profile of the nose, is one of the most common reasons why patients seek out scarless nose rhinoplasty. A closed rhinoplasty on adorsal hump is truly life-changing. As the great artist Michelangelo once said: "Every block of stone has a statue inside of it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”

Removing a dorsal hump on the nose is one of the more challenging tasks in the field of rhinoplasty. Most surgeons gloss over this fact and think that it’s like any other procedure, but not Dr. Dugar. To ensure pristine results with your scarless nose job, Dr. Dugar will carefully remove bone and cartilage in hundreds of micro-millimeter slivers.

In men, a dominant profile —sometimes, even with a high point— is maintained to create a masculine look without the tell-tale signs of the surgery. In women, a slender silhouette is created while still preserving a strong profile that doesn’t have a scooped or “ski-slope” appearance. Regardless of the enhancements needed, the rhinoplasty will be performed without creating any scars.

Asymmetric Nose

An asymmetric nose can spoil photographs and selfies. Fortunately, scarless nose rhinoplasty can address this issue quite well. But it’s worth mentioning that no person has a truly symmetric nose.

Even the most “flawless” and beautiful people in the world will fall short when compared to a computer-generated face with symmetric features. This is because natural facial contours play a crucial role. Contours draw light to the face, influencing how symmetrical a person’s nose and other facial features may appear.

These significant contour irregularities are addressed through a scarless nose job. Corrections made to an asymmetric nose are done with precision and accuracy to ensure the best results.

Droopy Tip (Hook Nose)

A droopy tip or hook nose is one of the most common reasons why patients seek out scarless nose rhinoplasty. Correcting this issue is one of the simpler procedures. A scarless nose approach is extremely safe and won’t leave visible signs of the surgery.

The main objective is to rotate the nose upwards to prevent the excess pull-down that occurs when smiling. Great care must be observed to avoid over-rotating the nose and causing a Miss Piggy-like look. Dr. Dugar utilizes multiple techniques to rotate the nasal tip and lift it to the preferred height.

Crooked Nose

It’s not impossible to remedy a crooked nose, but it’s not an easy nose surgery to execute, even for the most talented rhinoplasty surgeons who may have to resort to techniques that entail scarring.

What sets Dr. Dugar’s approach apart from the rest is the absolute adherence to the scarless nose approach. Each procedure is handled with unparalleled care, and a variety of innovative techniques are employed to achieve the desired result.

Dr. Dugar uses a combination of dynamic grafting, septal deviation correction, upper lateral cartilage correction, and nasal bone repositioning to give the nose a streamlined profile.

While there is no such thing as a perfectly straight nose in real life, correcting extreme irregularities with scarless nose rhinoplasty will help achieve a contoured look that blends naturally with the rest of your face. The surgery will leave no external scars, thus, keeping your procedure a secret.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for Women

A well-executed closed rhinoplasty on a beautiful female nose cannot be taught through textbooks alone. Noses vary greatly in shape, size, and natural contours. Dr. Dugar carefully examines these features to determine the best way to do scarless nose surgeries on women.

There is always the question of whether to make it perfectly straight, to retain a small amount of a scoop, or to preserve a tiny high spot — all of these can look good depending on the woman’s face. Whatever the preferred result is, Dr. Dugar combines his technical expertise and artistic touch to craft the ideal nose.

In the case of female patients, crafting elegantly contoured nasal tips is key. Dr. Dugar has mastered this technique on a number of nose types, from bulbous noses to crooked noses.

A functional rhinoplasty (adhering to the scarless nose approach) can also be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic enhancements to solve breathing issues.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for Men

Rhinoplasties for men are fundamentally distinct procedures when compared to rhinoplasties on women.

The main difference is that a male nose job requires remarkable finesse and subtlety. A high degree of care must be observed to avoid excessive sculpting of the tip, narrowing of the bones, and refining the overall nose profile. The ideal result is to preserve the masculine appearance of the nose throughout the procedure.

In executing one of the most delicate and conservative scarless nose rhinoplasties, Dr. Dugar ensures that each male patient is thoroughly examined, taking into consideration not just the unique nose profile but also existing issues that hamper quality of life.

For instance, many men who seek out a nose job need a functional rhinoplasty to remedy breathing issues caused by a deviated septum (a severely crooked passage between the bone and cartilage that divides the nose in two halves). Unlike other surgeons who treat male and female nose jobs the same, Dr. Dugar ensures that each patient undergoes the appropriate procedure with precision and accuracy.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for Teenagers

There are two critical factors when considering the possibility of a nose job for teenagers: nasal maturity and emotional maturity:

  • Nasal maturity is essential because this marks the point when the nose has stopped developing. In other words, the cartilage and bones are fully developed to withstand the trauma of rhinoplasty. This is usually achieved by age 15, but Dr. Dugar will assess a teenager’s nose to confirm.
  • Nasal maturity is essential because this marks the point when the nose has stopped developing. In other words, the cartilage and bones are fully developed to withstand the trauma of rhinoplasty. This is usually achieved by age 15, but Dr. Dugar will assess a teenager’s nose to confirm.

Given these two major considerations, what makes a scarless nose rhinoplasty valuable for teenage patients? For one, a well-executed nose job can be life-changing for many teens who experience excessive teasing and bullying due to the shape and size of their noses. Many of Dr. Deepak Dugar’s teenage patients attest that their confidence has grown by leaps and bounds post-surgery.

To be perfectly clear, there is no such thing as the perfect nose or face. So, rather than chasing perfection, Dr. Dugar simply enhances the beauty that everyone already possesses — by refining the natural features of the nose and allowing it to blend well with the rest of the face.

This is the underlying philosophy of the scarless nose approach — a delicate technique that requires impeccable attention to detail and high sensitivity to each patient’s needs.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for Asian

An Asian nose job has distinct considerations and requires extensive knowledge of the nasal anatomy. Individuals of Asian ancestry normally have thick skin and more fibrofatty tissue in general — all of which are set deeply into the face and are relatively lower than the average Caucasian’s nose.

In addition, most Asian noses have a weak cartilage and dorsum, with bone projection significantly lacking. The overall effect is a nose that can appear short, wide, and flat.

This can be corrected through a highly precise and safe procedure that adheres to the principles of the scarless nose approach. One solution is to put cartilage or implants along the bridge to lift the nose to a preferred height. Dr. Dugar guarantees that this Asian rhinoplasty procedure leaves no external scars whatsoever.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for other Ethnic Scarless

Rhinoplasties for people hailing from varying ethnic groups require special care and attention. Unlike Caucasian noses, which have a thin layer of skin and long nasal bones, noses from other ethnic groups may be flat and broad, supported by relatively weak cartilage.

A scarless nose rhinoplasty can help recreate the nose profile through a number of methods, such as grafting which involves lifting the nose bridge to create a more elevated profile. Nostril narrowing may also be required, depending on the original structure of the nose and the patient’s needs and desired outcome.

With Dr. Dugar’s scarless nose approach, patients can subtly refine the shape and size of their nose without the tell-tale signs of the surgery.

Scarless Rhinoplasty for East Slavic Noses

East Slavic people mainly trace their ancestry to countries like Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. The nose profiles of these individuals are quite unique, typically featuring bulbous or rounder noses.

Executing a nose job on East Slavic noses should be done with care and precision. In some cases, it involves carving and sculpting the existing cartilage. Sometimes there’s a need to reposition the tip cartilages with delivery and suture techniques. And in other situations, small grafts are needed to enhance the projection or rotation of the nose tip.

With Dr. Dugar’s scarless nose approach, patients can subtly refine the shape and size of their nose without the tell-tale signs of the surgery.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for European

European noses come in various shapes and sizes, and therefore, require thorough examination to determine the best procedure possible. Dr. Dugar’s patients of European descent come from countries like the United Kingdom, France, and Belgium.

Many of these patients usually seek subtle changes and highly precise enhancements to their noses. Despite these specifications, most rhinoplasty surgeons will resort to a reconstructive mentality that entails unnecessary and drastic measures, resulting in visible changes that attract unwanted questions from friends and strangers alike.

A Scarless Nose rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Dugar is guaranteed to be subtle, leaving no obvious signs of the surgery.

Scarless Rhinoplasty for Middle Eastern Noses

Individuals who are of Middle Eastern descent typically have overprojected nasal bones, a dorsal hump, and a wide columella base (the thin cartilage that separates the two nasal openings).

In performing a scarless nose rhinoplasty on Middle Eastern noses, a refined approach is crucial to preserve the natural characteristics while still achieving the desired look. Enhancing nasal contours and addressing other potential issues don’t need to undergo overly drastic changes that usually result in scarring and external marks.

Dr. Dugar’s precise technique with closed rhinoplasties will ensure that you can achieve your preferred nose shape without scarring.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for Indians and South Asians

Of Indian descent himself, Dr. Deepak Dugar is highly knowledgeable about the distinct nose profiles of Indian and South Asian patients. Whether it’s a drooping nose tip or a dorsal hump (bump on the nose bridge), Dr. Dugar has helped these patients to address the common issues and insecurities related to their nasal structure.

A scarless nose rhinoplasty is an excellent procedure for Indian and South Asian patients looking to enhance their facial appearance. While the objective of the surgery is to refine the nose, it is essential to preserve the naturally occuring contours. In doing so, the nose job doesn’t cause drastic and noticeable changes that can attract unwanted attention. With a scarless nose job, there will be no trace of the procedure so you can keep it a secret between you and your surgeon.

Scarless Nose Rhinoplasty for Actors, Models, and Celebrity

For actors, models, and celebrities looking to enhance their natural beauty, there is truly no other logical choice than a closed rhinoplasty.

Open rhinoplasty surgeons often take pride that 99% of patients don’t incur external scars. However small, there is still a 1% chance that you’d be one of the unfortunate ones to get unwanted marks on your nose post-surgery — a terrible prospect for professionals whose appearance is crucial to their work.

Through the scarless nose method, a nose job won’t ever leave any visible marks or scars. This is because a highly trained surgeon such as Dr. Dugar makes highly precise and conservative incisions to avoid making unnecessary changes to the nasal structure. With a discreet approach to rhinoplasty, Dr. Dugar can help you achieve your best look without leaving obvious signs that you went under the knife.

Other Types of Scarless Nose Rhinoplasties

Closed rhinoplasty on a broken nose

After a traumatic nasal fracture, the two biggest concerns are obstruction to breathing and permanent cosmetic deformity. It’s extremely important to seek professional help if you or anyone you know experiences a severe nose injury.

Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Dugar has helped hundreds of patients with a broken nose. Apart from ensuring that the surgery repairs the major structural damage, Dr. Dugar will also make it a point to avoid leaving surgical scars in the process. Whether it’s straightening the nose or fixing a damaged nasal septum, Dr. Dugar stands by his scarless nose guarantee.

This balance between functionality and appearance is the defining hallmark of highly accomplished nose surgeons. With a scarless nose surgery, patients can breathe significantly better and still look good even after being injured.

Closed rhinoplasty for athletes

Professional athletes and competitive sports enthusiasts often seek out rhinoplasties for a very specific reason: to improve their oxygen intake. Some people are naturally born with narrow nasal openings and other issues that hamper breathing capacity. For athletes who can’t afford to leave any stone unturned as far as performance is concerned, this is unacceptable.

Through a functional rhinoplasty, these patients can address breathing problems without ever worrying about leaving visible scarring post-surgery. Dr. Dugar has successfully treated a number of high-level athletes competing in a variety of sports — from basketball and football to tennis and swimming. Dr. Dugar’s distinct scarless nose method can remedy athletes’ issues.
