Adolescent and Teen Rhinoplasty
Nothing can boost your self-confidence like the acceptance of your peers, and nothing can harm your self-confidence like the ridicule of your peers. This is especially true of teens in our appearance-oriented world. Dr. Eric Cerrati is often asked about adolescent and teen rhinoplasty, or nose surgery. Of course, there are times when repairs to a child or teen’s nose are necessary. But more often, the question arises for purely cosmetic reasons.
Dr. Cerrati performs cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures for teens, but only after careful consideration with the teen and their parents or legal guardians. There are legitimate cases when a teen’s appearance causes undue hardship and emotional stress, and a nose revision surgery can solve the aesthetic issues causing the distress. Dr. Cerrati is a compassionate medical professional who understands the importance of appearance and how it affects self-esteem and self-worth.
Rhinoplasty Can Help You Face the Future with Confidence
Teen rhinoplasty can help your son or daughter face the future, and their peers, with confidence. It is important to note that rhinoplasty should only be performed after the teen has completed their growth spurt and the facial features are set, usually between 14 and 17 years of age. Dr. Cerrati will examine your teen to determine if this has happened yet as part of a confidential consultation and physical exam before surgery.
Parents and teens need to realize that nose job surgery is complex and invasive, and it requires a skilled, experienced surgeon to perform it correctly. Numerous issues with the nose can be adjusted, repaired or changed through nose revision surgery. Dr. Cerrati can explain more in person, as well as provide information about recovery times and procedures.
