Teenage Rhinoplasty

For many teenagers, a nose that is too prominent or has a large hump is a source of discomfort. It may even lead to teasing and embarrassment, along with poor self-esteem.

Teenage rhinoplasty enables an individual to enhance the appearance of the nose and ensure it is harmonious with the rest of the individual’s facial features. Our teenage patients are at very pivotal places in their lives and this procedure generally gives them a wonderful boost in self-confidence.

The CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery is a leading provider of teen rhinoplasty in the Beverly Hills area. Our teen nose job procedures are performed by Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, a globally recognized facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Azizzadeh is Harvard-trained and possesses advanced teen rhinoplasty expertise and will ensure each patient can accomplish his or her aesthetic goals.

What Is Teenage Rhinoplasty?

Primary rhinoplasty is used to reshape the nose and restore the nasal function. Meanwhile, teenage rhinoplasty is a form of primary rhinoplasty surgery designed exclusively for teens.

Rhinoplasty surgery is becoming increasingly prevalent among American teenagers. The procedure is performed to enhance the nose and improve the facial appearance. It also is completed to fix structural defects of the nose, including a deviated septum or breathing issues.

Teenage rhinoplasty is complex and can have lasting positive effects on a teen. However, the decision to undergo teen rhinoplasty is life-changing for both a parent and child and, therefore, a parent and teen should work together to weigh the pros and cons of teen rhinoplasty prior to surgery.

Dr. Azizzadeh helps parents and teens take the guesswork out of teenage rhinoplasty. He offers in-depth patient evaluations to address teen rhinoplasty concerns and questions. That way, Dr. Azizzadeh makes it easy for parents and teens to take an informed approach to teen rhinoplasty.

Ultimately, Dr. Azizzadeh takes a comprehensive approach to rhinoplasty, regardless of whether a treatment is administered to a man, woman, or teenager. He meets with patients and discusses rhinoplasty treatment options with them. Then, Dr. Azizzadeh offers personalized rhinoplasty treatment recommendations.

Are You a Candidate for Teen Rhinoplasty?

Teenage girls are eligible for rhinoplasty surgery as early as 15 or 16 years old, and teenage boys can undergo a rhinoplasty as early as 16 or 17 years old. A teen rhinoplasty procedure should not be performed until a patient has stopped growing, and it is only safe to perform teen rhinoplasty surgery after a patient’s nasal anatomy has fully developed.

With teen rhinoplasty, Dr. Azizzadeh’s goal is to help a patient achieve a nose that harmoniously complements his or her facial features. At the same time, Dr. Azizzadeh strives to provide each patient with a nose that is natural-looking. Thus, after Dr. Azizzadeh performs a teen rhinoplasty, a patient’s peers won’t be able to tell that he or she had a nose job.

Benefits of Teenage Rhinoplasty

The benefits of a teenage nose job include:

  • Helps correct a large nasal hump
  • Lifts a drooping nasal tip
  • Reduces wide nostrils
  • Improves nasal symmetry
  • Drives increased self-confidence
  • May help an individual improve his or her breathing (septoplasty)
  • Creates overall facial balance

Dr. Azizzadeh will outline the benefits of teenage rhinoplasty during an initial consultation. At this time, a patient can receive expert responses to his or her teen rhinoplasty questions as well.

Teenage Nose Job Considerations

There are many factors to consider before a teenager receives nose job surgery, including:

  • Age: Teen nose job surgery should not be performed until a patient has stopped growing. For girls, a teen rhinoplasty can be performed as early as 16 or 17 years old. Comparatively, for boys, a teenage rhinoplasty procedure often is performed at 17 or 18 years old. Dr. Azizzadeh will evaluate each individual to determine if they are anatomically ready for the surgery.
  • Communication: It is essential for a teenager to understand how the rhinoplasty is performed, how long the recovery process takes, and what results can realistically be achieved prior to scheduling surgery. In addition to having a strong path of communication with a teen patient, Dr. Azizzadeh also emphasizes good communication with the parent(s) of the patient. It is vital that all parties involved receive all of the correct information about surgery with Dr. Azizzadeh. Additionally, Dr. Azizzadeh teaches teenagers about teen plastic surgery and will maintain ongoing communication with teens and their parents throughout the treatment process.
  • Self-Confidence: A large or bumpy nose may impact a teen’s self-confidence. However, a teen nose job may help an individual correct this problem, resulting in increased self-confidence.
  • Time Frame: In most instances, the best time to complete teen plastic surgery is during the summer. In many cases, teens choose to have their rhinoplasty during the summer  after high school graduation and before a fall semester at college. This allows them plenty of time to heal before they start the exciting next stage of their lives!

Dr. Azizzadeh will meet with a patient to discuss teenage nose job considerations prior to treatment. By doing so, Dr. Azizzadeh will ensure an individual understands what to expect during and after a teen rhinoplasty.

Dr. Azizzadeh's Approach to Teen Rhinoplasty

Dr. Azizzadeh believes in a comprehensive approach to all surgeries – without exception. As such, he will allocate the necessary time and resources to assess an individual and determine whether he or she is a viable candidate for teen rhinoplasty.

During a teen rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Azizzadeh will look at an individual’s nose in combination with his or her facial features. He will also learn about a patient and why this individual is considering teen rhinoplasty.

Furthermore, Dr. Azizzadeh will provide in-depth assistance at each stage of a teen rhinoplasty treatment. He will help a patient prepare before surgery and understand all aspects of the recovery process. That way, Dr. Azizzadeh will ensure a patient can enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking nose for years to come.

How Much Does Teen Rhinoplasty Cost?

The cost of teen rhinoplasty may vary based on the plastic surgeon. At the CENTER, Dr. Azizzadeh will discuss the cost of teen rhinoplasty before after his examination of the patient during the consultation. Each rhinoplasty Dr. Azizzadeh performs is customized to the exact needs of the patient, and therefore the prices varies from one to the next.

Teen Rhinoplasty Recovery

Total recovery time for teenage rhinoplasty varies based on the patient. Dr. Azizzadeh outlines the teen rhinoplasty recovery process during an initial consultation. He helps teenage rhinoplasty patients establish realistic expectations for the recovery period and plan accordingly.

Teen rhinoplasty patients typically experience bruising and swelling around the eyes in the first week after treatment. In some instances, patients experience fatigue from anesthesia in the initial days following teen rhinoplasty surgery. Patients should rest for the first few days after surgery. They also should stay in an upright position as much as possible to limit swelling and speed up the healing process.

Patients generally see the full results of teen rhinoplasty surgery within two years. Dr. Azizzadeh requests follow-up appointments to ensure teenage rhinoplasty patients enjoy a seamless recovery process.
