Rhinoplasty for Teens and Young Adults

Nose surgery is often performed on teens and young adults when they have completed their facial growth. The numbers support this: with more than 200,000 nose surgeries performed in 2013, rhinoplasty was the second most popular surgical procedure in the United States, behind only breast augmentations. Of that group, 14% of the participants were teenagers between the ages of 13 and 19, making it by far the most popular surgery among this age group. A large, tiny, or asymmetrical nose can dramatically impact your facial aesthetic. After all, the nose is like the centerpiece that brings the entire face together. For many, a disproportionate nose can be a problem for self-confidence. Teenage rhinoplasty can reshape the nose, achieving a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

What Can be Corrected by a Rhinoplasty?

Female facial plastic surgeon Dr. Klausner has corrected the following nasal concerns with great success:

  • Deviated septum or nasal asymmetry
  • Noticeable humps and or depressions along the bridge of the nose
  • General profile imperfections
  • A nose that is disproportionate or larger than what a patient may prefer
  • Undesirable width of the bridge
  • Nasal tip contour issues: a bit turned upward, drooping, too pointed, large or bulbous
  • Septal perforations

Recovering From Your Rhinoplasty

After your surgery, we will carefully monitor you in the recovery room, after which you will be released to fully heal at home. The area around the nose will be bruised and swollen for about a week. In almost all patients, there is bruising and discoloration under the eyes in addition to the nose. Cold compresses and anti-inflammatory medications can help reduce these effects. Your post-operative check-up with Dr. Klausner will occur the next day in order to monitor your healing, help you feel more comfortable and review post-operative instructions. It generally takes around 2-4 weeks to recover from nose surgery in New York City and Manhattan. Within this timeframe, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided.

Is rhinoplasty surgery risky?

While rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures in the U.S., all surgeries come with some risk. That's why choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon with a successful track record and years of experience is crucial. Dr. Klausner can explain the details of your rhinoplasty procedure and ensure treatment is safe and effective for you.

What side effects should I expect from rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty patients will experience some post-operative swelling and inflammation as well as bleeding. These side effects are temporary and should resolve over the following days and weeks. Our clinic in New York will provide a detailed list of ways to alleviate any discomfort, including cool compresses and sleeping in a slightly elevated position.

Is surgery the only answer?

Some issues—such as a deviated septum—can only be resolved through rhinoplasty surgery. Patients who desire small and subtle cosmetic changes may want to consider a temporary nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Dr. Klausner can use injectables during a nonsurgical rhinoplasty to avoid going under the knife if deemed a more appropriate treatment. The procedure can be done in the office with topical anesthesia. We can explain all of this and whether you're a candidate for surgical or nonsurgical rhinoplasty during your consultation.
