Becoming a confident adult starts with becoming a confident teenager. For some teens, embarrassment about their appearance can result in lower self-esteem and confidence. A misshapen nose can have a drastic impact on facial balance, and for some teens, a jolt to their self-confidence. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills is a skilled plastic surgeon who offers teenage rhinoplasty to inspire renewed confidence for his young patients.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed for teenagers. Since the nose is the central feature of the face, it has the biggest impact on the aesthetic harmony and balance. A prominent nose that overshadows the rest of the facial features or a misshaped nose that is distracting, may impact a teen’s confidence. When appropriate, teenage rhinoplasty can have a positive impact on a teen’s life, helping them improve their confidence in their appearance, as well as their emotional well-being.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Teen Nose Job?
Rhinoplasty should always be considered a major decision at any age, especially for teens. It can improve the aesthetics of the face, and for many, improve their confidence. However, good candidates for a teen nose job should carefully weigh the pros and cons with their parents to determine if it is the right option for them personally. Teenage rhinoplasty can be completed when the nose is mature, which is around 15-16 for girls and 16-17 for boys.
