Rhinoplasty for Teenagers

Feb 19, 2018, 13:00 PM by Valerie Clark

Rhinoplasty for teens is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures on teenagers. Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty can correct abnormalities with the appearance of the nose.  These abnormalities can be due to genetics, or from an accident or injury. 

As we all know and remember, the teenage years can be an emotional and awkward time in person’s life.  The ideal candidate for teen rhinoplasty should have realistic goals for the surgery. One of the most common reasons for teens to consider rhinoplasty is to correct a nose that is out of proportion to the face, such as too large or too wide.  Here are a few other popular reasons:

  • Crooked or broken nose
  • Large or bulbous end of nose
  • Large or flared nostrils
  • Deviated septum and other deformities

Dr. Bahman Guyuron is an internationally renowned plastic surgeon in the Cleveland Ohio area.  He has more than 30 years of experience and is a rhinoplasty expert.  He is so passionate about this surgery that he has developed a procedure that is customized to each patient’s face. The final result will be a proportional nose that enhances the face. Dr. Guyuron teaches his procedure to other plastic surgeons around the globe to promote better techniques and outcomes for rhinoplasty procedures, especially in teens.

Dr. Guyuron uses photography and computerized technology to demonstrate the final results. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure in the state-of-the-art medical facility and will last about 1-2 hours. Recovery time is usually 8-10 days.

You can schedule the first consultation in the winter and plan the surgery late spring or early summer. This is the most popular time for teen rhinoplasty procedures, so do not wait to get your surgery scheduled.
