The facts about teen rhinoplasty surgery
Teens request rhinoplasty surgery more than any other facial plastic surgery procedure. They may desire the procedure for a number of reasons, including changing the shape or size of their nose, balancing their facial features or repairing a breathing or respiratory problem. Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte NC’s best facial plastic surgeon is an expert in performing teen rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Freeman does not recommend teen rhinoplasty surgery until the nose is fully formed, typically around age 14 to 15 for women and age 16 to 18 for men.

Since rhinoplasty surgery refines the shape of the nose, bringing it into balance with the other facial features, teen rhinoplasty can be especially helpful for restoring a teen’s self-confidence at the same time improving their appearance. Rhinoplasty patients, especially younger teen patients should always have clear, realistic goals and a clear understanding of just what is possible with teen rhinoplasty surgery.
