Making friends in high school is difficult as it is, so when a teen feels their nose is preventing them from going out there and living their best life it makes it even more challenging. This is why so many teens and their parents are sitting down to have serious discussions about teenage rhinoplasty and its benefits. Laguna Beach teens are finding that this is an excellent time in their life to take on a surgery like this and that it has a variety of benefits. With teenagers across the country turning to cosmetic surgery, it is no surprise that trend is happening in California.
Dr. Kevin Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty procedures, invites parents and teens to set up a free consultation appointment to discuss this specific procedure. It is important that teens wait until their noses have reached their adult size so that the surgery results are not ruined as the nose continues to grow.
For girls, their noses reach maturity between 15 and 16 years old. For boys, their noses are fully mature by the age of 17.
While the obvious benefit of having this procedure done during a person’s teenage years is the fact that it will help improve their overall self confidence, there are several medical benefits. For instance, a teenager is going to handle the surgery better than an older adult will. Their skin has more elasticity, which allows the surgeon to more easily sculpt and recreate the nasal features. Young people will find that the recovery for this procedure is easier than it would be in 10, 15 or 20 years. The best part is, the results will still last for a very long time.
