Teen rhinoplasty is one of many popular surgeries
Teen rhinoplasty has become very popular. Part of the reason for the popularity of teen rhinoplasty is that Instagram has made it easier for teenagers male and female to compare their appearances with their peers and with the perfectly photographed and airbrushed stars they see on media. As a result, teens will sometimes go to needless lengths to alter their appearance. In 2015, there was an Instagram trend in which girls would suck on shot glasses in an attempt to get their lips to look like those of Kylie Jenner. These girls ended up needing laser treatment to repair burst capillaries in their lips as a result.
This is the sort of behavior that makes a lot of facial plastic surgeons reluctant to offer teen rhinoplasty. The best Charlotte, NC rhinoplasty surgeons make a point of interviewing both the teenager and the parents of the teenager in order to determine if he or she is mature enough to know his or her desires and think about the long term.
Preparing for teen rhinoplasty and recovery
Teen rhinoplasty should only be performed when the features of the teenager are fully mature. Teenagers in general are not supposed to smoke or drink, but if your son or daughter is not strictly keeping to the rules here, he or she should stay away from nicotine and alcohol for at least two weeks before surgery. He or she should also stay away from aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E supplements or herbal supplements that might cause blood thinning. If he or she wears glasses, they should be replaced with prescription contacts which he or she should learn to use before surgery, so that he or she will be able to manage afterward without having glasses resting on his or her nose.
For the next few weeks, he or she should avoid any heavy exercise else that would raise blood pressure, and should also avoid any garments that have to be pulled over the head. In order to prevent sneezing, he or she should do a lot of hand-washing and keep contact with others to a minimum for a few weeks.
