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, rhinoplasty is best performed for teens and young adults. The timing of the procedure factors significantly when you consider the improved appearance.Nose reshaping was the second-most-popular surgical procedure performed in 2013 and 2014, behind only breast augmentation. Across the country, more than 200,000 procedures were performed in each of the last two years 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 rhinoplasty options may be best for you or your teen. Contact us at our office in Beverly Hills to schedule a consultation.
