CLAIRE DUGGAL, MD

In March of 2016, Dr. Claire Duggal of Duggal Plastic surgery partnered with Dr. Henry Sandel IV, MD FACS of Sandel Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. Since then the Sandel Duggal Center for Plastic Surgery was formed, and more recently, the development of their state-of-the-art ambulatory center - West Annapolis Surgery Center which is conveniently sited within the same facility as the practice.

Dr. Duggal focuses on all aspects of cosmetic surgery and prides herself on taking a natural approach to restoring and enhancing each patient individually. She is experienced in breast surgery, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and fat grafting. As a mother herself, Dr. Duggal relates to what women face after having children and the desire to regain a “pre-baby” body. She is equally experienced in facial rejuvenation including surgical and non-surgical options such as Botox® and fillers. She is also trained in treating male aesthetic issues including liposuction and gynecomastia surgery.
“As a woman and a mother, I relate to so many things women go through when thinking about how they look and feel, and wondering if plastic surgery is right for them. I understand wanting to restore your body and wanting to look your best, but also wanting to remain naturally beautiful. It’s a balance I know we can achieve at Duggal Plastic Surgery.”

–Claire Duggal, M.D.
In addition to aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr. Duggal performs all types of general reconstructive procedures. Her main focus is breast reconstruction, and she has published multiple peer-reviewed articles examining breast reconstruction techniques and outcomes.

WHO I AM


1. ALTERNATIVE CAREER CHOICE

Professional Cake Decorator. I fully admit to using boxed cake mix, but I do decorate elaborate cakes every year for my daughters’ birthdays.

2. BEST ADVICE EVER GIVEN

“If you don’t have passion, you have nothing. If you don’t believe in what you are doing, why would anyone else?”

3. WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY PRACTICE

I love the staff we have at the office. It is a wonderful team, and everyone truly cares about making sure each patient has the best possible experience.

4. WHERE IS YOUR HAPPY PLACE?

On my parents’ farm in Virginia overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains where I got married.

5. PERSONAL MANTRA

Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.

6. FAVORITE FOOD

Chocolate. A full food group unto itself.

7. COOK AT HOME OR DINE OUT?

Cook at home – definitely not better food, but easier than a restaurant with a 2- anda 4-year-old!

8. DESCRIBE YOUR BEDSIDE MANNER?

I try very hard to be caring and understanding. People coming to talk about cosmetic or reconstructive surgery feel very vulnerable. It is our job as surgeons to make them feel more comfortable about their choices and their decisions.
