Teenage Rhinoplasty (Nose Jobs) Specialist
Is rhinoplasty for teens?
Ideally, nose surgery should be performed on teens and young adults, as opposed to waiting until later in life. Like with dental braces, corrective measures to one’s appearance are best done before reaching full adulthood. The numbers support this frame of mind as well. 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 that age group. A large, tiny or asymmetrical nose can have a dramatic impact on 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 (nose job) can reshape the nose in order to achieve a more balanced appearance.
Who is a good candidate for a teenage rhinoplasty (nose job)?
Individuals with functional and/or cosmetic concerns with their nose. Many people who are displeased with the appearance of their nose and/or are concerned about the lack of symmetry between the nose and other facial features often consider a rhinoplasty. Additionally, individuals who have breathing issues, often times due to a prior trauma to the area also consider rhinoplasty to improve their quality of life and appearance. However, rhinoplasties are more complicated than just making the nose look smaller or straighter. There needs to be a balance between the nose and other facial features, they need to complement each other in order to achieve a natural-looking result.
