Are You a Teen or Parent Considering a Nose Job for Your Teen?
The most commonly requested facial plastic surgery by teenagers is the rhinoplasty procedure. As the nose is the focal point of the face, many teenagers feel self conscious or embarrassed about their own nose. They feel that a nose job will help them improve their own self-confidence, which is important to do during these very difficult years.
As one of the leading facial plastic surgeons in Orange County, Dr. Kevin Sadati is happy to accommodate teenagers and their parents at his Newport Beach practice, but there are several things these patients need to keep in mind. Dr. Kevin Sadati feels it is essential to have both parents and the teenagers on board for this procedure, and the first step is to set up a consultation for everyone to discuss the goals for the surgery. It is important to know that it is safest to go with a certified facial plastic surgeon that is an expert in the field so there are far fewer risks involved.
Candidates for Teenage Rhinoplasty
For patients of this age group, there are some key restrictions that must be met. Most importantly, patients under the age of 18 must have the written permission and consent from either their parents or their legal guardians to undergo this procedure. There are also minimum age requirements to perform this procedure. Girls must be between the ages of 15 and 16, and boys must be between the ages of 17 and 18 before a rhinoplasty procedure may be performed. This is because the human nose has not fully formed and developed until this point, and it is dangerous to have a rhinoplasty before the nose is done growing as the surgery could cause significant structural issues. Dr. Sadati will determine if a patient’s nose is completely developed and mature during the initial consultation appointment.
Although some parents might be apprehensive to allow their young adult child to undergo a major facial plastic surgery, it is important for parents to note that this is actually an optimal time to have this surgery. Teenagers are more resilient, and will not have as difficult of a time with the recovery as an older adult patient might have after this same surgery. In addition, their skin has more flexibility and elasticity, allowing the plastic surgeon to achieve better results than they could do on an older patient. Teen patients and their parents should take the time to set up a consultation appointment to learn more about this surgery and its benefits; it could be exactly what your teen needs to get that head start in life!

Benefits of a Nose Job for a Teen
Dr. Sadati feels that a nose job during the teen years may be beneficial for several reasons. Because of the age and condition of their skin, some of the benefits of a nose job in the teen years are:
- Faster recovery times
- More flexible skin
- Natural looking results
- Effective restructuring and reshaping
- Relief from social pressure
Because each person develops differently and each patient is unique, we suggest setting up a consultation before any major decisions are made. Both corrective and elective procedures are big decisions, and should always be made with the cooperation and consent of the patient’s parents.
