Adolescent and Teen Rhinoplasty
Appearance is important to feeling confident, especially for adolescents and teenagers. The nose is the central facial feature and a major contributor to the balance and attractiveness of the face. If the size or shape of the nose is unflattering, it can impact a young person’s confidence. When appropriate, our team at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offers adolescent and teen rhinoplasty to reshape the nose for our young patients.
Rhinoplasty is one of the few elective cosmetic plastic surgeries that is commonly performed on adolescents and teenagers. The nose can have a major impact on the aesthetics of the face and the self-confidence of young men and women. When the appearance of the nose is affecting a pre-teen or teenager’s well-being, cosmetic surgery may be an option. Teen nose job surgery can have a positive impact on how a teen feels about their appearance, helping them gain their confidence.
Teen Nose Job Surgery
It is important to ensure a teen is both physically and emotionally mature enough to have a nose job. Girls mature quicker than boys, and most female teens can undergo rhinoplasty by age 14, sometimes younger. Boys tend to mature a little later, and rhinoplasty may need to wait until age 16 or beyond. It is important that the nose has stopped growing before reshaping or resizing is performed.
