The two types of nose jobs performed at Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty Center™ are closed scarless rhinoplasty and scarless functional rhinoplasty. Dr. Dugar takes a customized approach for each patient depending on the reason for their procedure and the types of noses clients have. Below are the various reasons a person may need to receive scarless rhinoplasty, as well as examples of how different patients may be treated with different types of rhinoplasty.
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.
Boxy or Round Tip
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.
Wide Nasal Bones
Wide nasal bones can cause your nose to look wide and somewhat flat instead. These wide bones can also make the nose difficult to contour with makeup. A common trick makeup artists use to camouflage a wide nose is “nose contouring,” where straight lines are drawn down the nose to make it appear thinner. With our closed scarless wide nose rhinoplasty, we can permanently “contour” your nose by narrowing the nasal bones to achieve a more elegant and refined look from all angles. Our nose job for a wide nose is performed without scars, keeping your procedure a secret.
Dorsal Hump (Bump on the Profile)
A dorsal hump (a bump on the profile of the nose) is one of the most common reasons why patients seek out closed scarless rhinoplasty. The improvement a dorsal hump rhinoplasty provides is truly life-changing. As Michelangelo once said: "Every block of stone has a statue inside of it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” This has never been more true than with the removal of a dorsal hump, one of the most challenging aspects of performing scarless rhinoplasty. Most surgeons gloss over this step considering it to be easy; we think it’s the exact opposite. Dr. Dugar will remove bone and cartilage in hundreds of micro-millimeter slivers to slowly and carefully unveil the perfect symmetry of your nose. In men, we like to keep a dominant profile—sometimes even with a high point—to create a masculine look without the telltale sign of a dorsal hump nose job. In women, we like to feminize the silhouette but preserve a strong profile that doesn’t have a scooped or “ski-slope” appearance. Regardless of the enhancements needed, your rhinoplasty will be performed scarlessly.
An asymmetric nose can spoil your photographs and selfies. Fortunately, asymmetric nose surgery can address this issue extremely well. That said, we remind everyone that no one has a truly symmetric face or nose. If you take the 10 most beautiful people and compare their computerized symmetric face versus their natural face, the latter always looks better. This is because facial contours play a more important role than pure symmetry. Contours are what draw the light to and from the face, and can make or break how the light’s reflection enhances features. When there are significant contour irregularities caused by asymmetries of the nose, however, asymmetric nose correction can be employed. Of course, all nose jobs performed by Dr. Dugar are scarless, so no one will know you underwent a rhinoplasty.
Droopy Tip (Hook Nose)
A droopy tip or hook nose is one of the most common reasons why patients seek out closed scarless rhinoplasty. Fortunately, correcting this issue is relatively simple and extremely safe thanks to our scarless hook nose rhinoplasty. The key is to rotate your nose upwards to prevent the excess pull-down that happens when you smile. However, great care must be taken to not over-rotate the nose and cause a Miss Piggy-like look. We utilize multiple techniques to rotate the nasal tip and lift it to an elegant height. Whatever maneuver is required, your nose job will be scarless so there will be no tell-tale signs of surgery.
A crooked nose can spoil your photographs and selfies. Yet fixing it can prove challenging, even for the most talented rhinoplasty surgeons. But with our specialized crooked nose rhinoplasty, we are able to straighten and improve your crooked nose significantly. We utilize a combination of dynamic grafting, septal deviation correction, upper lateral cartilage correction, and nasal bone repositioning to give your nose a more streamlined profile. While there is no such thing as a perfectly straight nose in real life, making yours straighter will achieve a contoured look that blends in naturally with the rest of your face. Your crooked nose surgery will leave no external scars, thus keeping your procedure a secret.
Female Scarless Rhinoplasty
A scarless female nose job is one of our most commonly requested procedures. The anatomy of a beautiful female nose cannot be taught via textbooks alone. Studying beautiful faces allows Dr. Dugar to understand the look and feel of an ideal female nose. When it comes to the profile of a nose, there is always a 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 a patient’s face. Dr. Dugar marries his expertise and artistic touch with your preferences to create the perfect result. Crafting elegantly contoured nasal tips is a passion for Dr. Dugar, and he helps women address issues such as bulbous and crooked noses. He can also perform functional rhinoplasty in conjunction with cosmetic nose jobs to solve breathing issues (called septorhinoplasty). As expected from a world-class surgeon like Dr. Dugar, all his procedures leave no external scars on your nose.
Male Scarless Rhinoplasty
A male nose job requires remarkable finesse and subtlety, making it a fundamentally different procedure from female rhinoplasty. Preserving the masculine appearance of a nose while refining its profile is the key to successful male scarless rhinoplasty. It entails many considerations: maintaining a high spot on the profile, avoiding turning up the nose too much, not overly sculpting the tip, and narrowing the bones just enough. It’s one of the most conservative surgeries we perform, yet most surgeons treat a male nose just as they would a female one. Furthermore, a male nose job is often accompanied by functional rhinoplasty to address breathing issues caused by defects such as a deviated septum. As one of the leading rhinoplasty experts in the world, Dr. Dugar assures you that your procedure will not only be satisfactory, it will also leave no visible scars.
Teenage Scarless Rhinoplasty
Teenage scarless rhinoplasty is a sensitive issue and should only be performed after close consultation with a patient’s family. There are two critical factors when considering a teenage nose job: nasal maturity and emotional maturity. Nasal maturity is when the nose has stopped growing, meaning the cartilage and bones are developed enough to withstand the trauma of rhinoplasty. It is typically achieved by age 15, but Dr. Dugar will assess a teenager’s nose to verify that nasal maturity has been reached. Emotional maturity is just as important, which is why Dr. Dugar carefully interviews teenage patients to ensure that they are mentally and emotionally prepared to get a scarless rhinoplasty. Still, undergoing a scarless rhinoplasty can be life-changing for many teens; it can end bullying or teasing from peers or boost a young person’s self-confidence, for example. Countless times, Dr. Dugar has seen teenagers grow their confidence by leaps and bounds after their insecurities have been addressed by rhinoplasty. He believes that everyone is truly beautiful, but if scarless rhinoplasty can help resolve self-consciousness and instill confidence, then it is a viable option. Understanding the delicacy of performing surgery on young noses, Dr. Dugar performs scarless rhinoplasty exclusively.
Asian Scarless Rhinoplasty
An Asian nose job requires careful skill and extensive knowledge of the nasal anatomy. Most Asian noses have weak cartilages and lack bone or cartilage projection; this leads to a weak dorsum that can appear flat and broad. We can address this by putting cartilage or implants along the bridge to lift the nose to an elegant height. Dr. Dugar assures patients that his Asian rhinoplasty procedure leaves no external scars whatsoever.
Ethnic Scarless Rhinoplasty
Ethnic rhinoplasty requires special care and attention. Oftentimes, ethnic noses are flat and broad along the dorsum. The cartilage is somewhat weak and flimsy; as such, additional support in the form of grafts is needed to lift the bridge and create a more elevated profile. Nostril narrowing may also be required, depending on a nose’s original structure and the patient’s desired outcome. Given Dr. Dugar’s extensive rhinoplasty experience, he is able to perform an ethnic nose job without leaving any external scars.
Russian Scarless Rhinoplasty
Russia, the world’s largest country, is home to some of the most beautiful faces and most talented people on the planet. We cater to a significant number of Russian patients every year who travel to Los Angeles to have their noses enhanced via our special scarless approach. Russian scarless rhinoplasty requires extreme finesse to subtly improve the nose, leading to minor but meaningful refinement. If you seek a Russian nose job, Dr. Dugar is a scarless rhinoplasty expert you can trust.
Our practice routinely performs scarless European rhinoplasty on patients from London, Paris, Italy, and Belgium, among other countries. These transcontinental clients fly all the way to Beverly Hills for Dr. Dugar’s scarless and minimalist approach to a European nose job. While many patients seek only subtle enhancements to their noses, most rhinoplasty surgeons subscribe to a “reconstructive mentality.” This makes it difficult for clients who want more finessed results that won’t drastically alter their appearance and attract unwanted questions. Because Dr. Dugar specializes in scarless nose jobs, your reason for visiting the U.S. will remain a complete secret.
Middle Eastern Scarless Rhinoplasty
When Dr. Dugar performs a Middle Eastern nose job, his goal is to subtly improve a nose while preserving its natural characteristics. We are firm believers in enhancing nasal contours without causing drastic change. We also believe that inflicting a scar in the middle of a beautiful painting is blasphemous, which is why we recommend that almost all primary noses undergo the scarless closed method.

Most of his patients fly expressly to Los Angeles seeking subtle refinement that goes appreciated without being obvious. The stigma of a bad nose job is haunting and we do everything possible to keep our patients’ noses as natural-looking as possible post-surgery.

After a traumatic nasal injury, the two biggest concerns are nasal obstruction and cosmetic deformity. Please contact our office as soon as you or a loved one experiences trauma to the nose. Dr. Dugar has repaired hundreds of nasal fractures throughout his career, allowing patients to breathe easier and look better after being injured. Sometimes, immediate surgery can be done to help reset the nasal fracture if it is severe; when it is a mild deviation, however, waiting six weeks until most of the swelling has gone down is more prudent. Broken nose rhinoplasty often involves fixing a broken nasal septum and can also entail straightening the nose. Whatever procedure must be done to repair your nose, you can be certain that Dr. Dugar will employ a closed scarless technique.
Elite athletes routinely choose Scarless Nose™️ surgery to address their breathing issues. Oxygen is the key ingredient in our body’s ability to function at high levels. Nasal obstructions decrease the body’s oxygen levels because of the diminished nasal airflow. We have successfully treated athletes in the NBA, NHL, ATP/WTA, and NFL, as well as Olympic swimmers and peak performance coaches. Functional rhinoplasty can address breathing problems caused by issues with:
2. Inferior turbinates
3. Nasal valve
5. Polyps, chronic sinusitis, or other medical conditions
We identify and resolve nasal obstructions whatever the root cause may be. Increased oxygen intake results in elevated athletic performance, accelerated recovery, and better sleep quality. When getting nose surgery to breathe better from Dr. Dugar, you will undergo a closed scarless technique that leaves zero visible external scars.
