Teenagers often struggle with their appearance. As the body changes, many teenagers find that they are unhappy with their noses. Teenage rhinoplasty is a procedure that surgically enhances the appearance of the nose. Like most cosmetic surgery, the results are permanent. If you are considering teenage rhinoplasty, it is important to be sure that you are the one making the decision and no one else.
Teenage rhinoplasty is a common request, as there are many teens who are dissatisfied with their noses. If the rhinoplasty is performed too early or while the nose is still developing, the results can be skewed. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler to determine if teenage rhinoplasty is right for you. After the surgery, it takes about eight weeks to recover before you can return to daily activities and six to eight weeks before you can engage in contact sports.
