Rhinoplasty for Teens
An asymmetrical or misshapen nose can be constant source of ridicule and embarrassment, especially for socially conscious teenagers. Therefore, teen rhinoplasty is a popular nose surgery for adolescents and one that Dr. Spence specializes in at Forever Faces Plastic Surgery. We understand the sensitive stage of life that teenagers are in, a time when building a positive self-image is healthy and highly valued. Unfortunately, having disproportioned and unattractive nasal characteristics can be a significant detriment to a teen’s self-esteem and quality of life. Using teen rhinoplasty, Dr. Spence can perform one or more of the following cosmetic corrections:
- Remove a nasal hump
- Straighten the bridge
- Reshape the tip or nostrils
- Change the size of the nose
Not only does Dr. Spence use the most advanced techniques in both open and closed rhinoplasty, but he also carries extensive training in improving or restoring the function of the nose when necessary. Regardless of what specific concerns your teen has, you can be confident that Dr. Spence is equipped to address them with the highest level of expertise. At Forever Faces Plastic Surgery, we create rhinoplasty results that provide beautiful balance and harmony to the face.
Teen Nose Job Surgery
Choosing plastic surgery as a teen can be intimidating, for both the parent and the child. At Forever Faces Plastic Surgery, we welcome your questions and concerns. In fact, Dr. Spence takes ample time to evaluate your teen’s candidacy for rhinoplasty as well as set realistic expectations for results. Teen nose job surgery is a decision that should be equally agreed on by both the teen and the parent. It is important that each adolescent patient understands the risks and recovery time associated with rhinoplasty. The procedure generally requires 1-2 weeks of healing time, with minor bruising and swelling immediately following. Therefore, it is wise to schedule teen rhinoplasty at a time when school and other commitments are less impacted. Correcting nose imperfections sooner rather than later can save your teen from peer ridicule and restore their self-image. However, rhinoplasty should not be performed before the nose is fully grown, which is around 15 to 17 years old.
