A large, tiny or malformed nose can have a significant impact on your appearance. For many, a disproportionate nose can be a problem for self-esteem. Nose surgery, technically known as rhinoplasty, can shape and sculpt bone, cartilage and soft tissue in order to achieve more-balanced facial features.
In many instances, nose surgery is performed on teens and young adults. The timing of the procedure factors in significantly when you consider the improvement in appearance.
Nose reshaping was the second most popular surgical procedure performed in 2014, behind only breast augmentations. Across the country, more than 200,000 procedures were performed in that year alone; about 14% of these were on teenagers between the ages of 13 and 19.
Consult with board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Andrew Ordon and Ritu Chopra to determine which nose surgery options may be best for you or your teen. Contact us at our office in Beverly Hills to schedule a consultation.
