Veronique has always been self-conscious of her nose. She has memories as of a child of being called names and being told her nose looked like Mount Everest. But her issue goes deeper. Veronique says she has her father’s nose. When she looks in the mirror she is reminded of a man who she says left her when she was 5 years old and asked her about how much money he was getting when her best friend, her grandmother, passed away.
Veronique is a loving wife, mother to two children, and a caregiver to her mother who suffers from lupus, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. When plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon asks Veronique what has been holding her back from getting a nose job she tells him it’s mainly financial resources.
The Doctors to the rescue! They bring in Dr. Deepak Raj Dugar from the Scarless Nose Institute who surprises Veronique with a free rhinoplasty. Dr. Dugar tells Veronique, “I am so inspired by your selflessness, and your constant value you provide to everyone around you, I want to give you as much value as I can!"
Dr. Dugar explains the rhinoplasty process. He says Veronique will come in the day before surgery, and the next morning the surgery will be about 1 to 2 hours. On day 6 the cast will come off and then on day 6 or 7 she should be back going out in public with usually minimal to no bruising. He adds that she has a beautiful face and probably doesn’t need the procedure from a scientific standpoint, but if it makes her feel beautiful and empowered, he’s here to finesse it and make her feel beautiful. Veronique promises The Doctors she will return after her surgery to share her results.
