Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic enhancement for patients in the Charlotte, NC area, including traditional rhinoplasty, teen rhinoplasty, and revision rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the form or function of the nose. Candidates for rhinoplasty may include teens, however, the nose must be fully developed, which happens between the ages of 14 and 16 for females, and 16 and 18 for males. Prior to surgery, your surgeon will meet with you for a consultation to review the structure of your nose and go over your goals. Surgery is performed at The Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery in Charlotte, NC. Recovery typically involves moderate bruising for 7 to 10 days, temporary skin numbness, swelling for a few weeks, and very minor swelling for up to several months.
Patients who are unhappy with a previous rhinoplasty procedure can undergo revision rhinoplasty in as little as one year later. Typically, revision rhinoplasty is performed through an external approach. Often times, cartilage grafting is needed to rebuild the tip of the nose, which can be harvested from the patient’s ear without visibly altering the ear.
