What is a Teen Rhinoplasty?
A Teen Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure performed on anyone from the age of 13 to reduce the size of the nose, reshape or straighten the nose, or repair the nose due to a deviated septum or injury. Before the procedure, Dr. Kassir will hold a consultation with the prospective rhinoplasty patient to best understand the patient’s aesthetic goal and tailor the result to their needs. Dr. Kassir always makes sure the teen wants a rhinoplasty surgery for the right reasons. Dr. Kassir’s surgical expertise can dramatically improve the shape of a teen’s nose, while still putting emphasis on making the results look natural. The nose is a very prominent feature and can often be the center of attention, causing self-image issues or emotional distress. The rhinoplasty procedure is a permanent way to enhance the features of the nose.
Dr. Kassir also trains other plastic surgeons in modern rhinoplasty techniques that involve less recovery time and a final result that looks natural, rather than overdone. The surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours and the splint is removed on the 6th or 7th day to reveal your new nose. The immediate post-surgery photos are examples of what the nose will look like after a rhinoplasty. There will be swelling, however, the majority of swelling goes down within 3 months. The final result of a rhinoplasty usually takes about 1 year to see due to all of the minor swelling that has to subside.
What can a Teen rhinoplasty do?
A teen nose job can reduce the size of the nose and reshape the tip to create better overall balance for the face. Although a Teen Rhinoplasty can be done to improve the facial aesthetic, it can also be done to improve breathing quality in the case of a deviated septum.
A Teen Rhinoplasty can address the following:
- Remove a hump
- Straighten a bridge
- Reshape the tip
- Increase or decrease the size of the nostrils
- Correct the nose after an injury
- Open breathing passages
Are you a good Teen Rhinoplasty candidate?
The best candidates for a Teen Rhinoplasty surgery is a teen who wishes to improve the size and shape of their nose. A rhinoplasty can only be done on a teen whose nose has reached adult size. This can be determined by Dr. Kassir through an in office consultation. The earliest age for a rhinoplasty is 13 years old in females, since they finish growing at an earlier age than males.
Recovery from Teen Rhinoplasty
It is vital to adhere to our recovery guidelines for the safest and most optimal results. This includes the use of Dr. Kassir's rhinoplasty recovery kit and the medical-grade recovery skincare line. Together, this routine will prevent the occurrence of unwanted or uneven scarring to ensure that your nose recovers quickly. After surgery you may have packing that will be removed the very next day in Dr. Kassir’s office. Patients must sleep on their back with their head slightly lifted for the first week following surgery to prevent anything interfering with the nose. On day 6, the splint is removed. The results will show immediately after surgery and somewhat after the splint is removed, however, once the splint is removed, you may have swelling which can make the nose appear bigger than it was made. Full recovery takes 6-12 months but the results are obvious when the splint is removed (almost all of our are patients happy the with nose right after splint removal, and it continues to get better). Throughout the healing process, it is important to remember that Dr. Kassir made the nose to the exact dimensions in the digitized image, and the skin swelling can easily hide this. We provide painkillers and antibiotics to help alleviate pain and the risk of infection. Avid use of arnica is recommended along with other items in your patient checklist. Make sure to walk around 3 to 4 times a day to enhance blood flow to promote recovery, and ask our staff for the best prevention measures for healing in your surgery. Do not bend over or lift heavy objects until Dr. Kassir provides approval. You'll want to avoid saunas, steam, alcohol, aspirin, and ibuprofen.
What are the Different Variations of Rhinoplasty?
Nasal Tip Narrowing
A bulbous tip signifies thick skin and weak tip cartilage. Dr. Kassir uses a special technique to suture the tip to enhance its definition and tighten the overlying skin flap. A graft can also be considered but it is not always needed due to the exclusive techniques used by Dr. Kassir.
Nasal Tip Projection
Dr. Kassir can use a natural graft from the nose itself, ear, or rib to develop greater tip projection in the nose in addition to the above procedures.
Dorsal Projection/Nasal Bridge
If the patient lacks a projected nasal bridge (common in African-Americans and Asians), a graft can be used to add height to the dorsum. On the contrary, an large nasal bridge, or one that has a hump, can be reduced.
What is the Best Time for a Teen to have a Rhinoplasty Surgery?
The best time for a teen to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure is often during the summer, when they have enough time to recuperate and recover. It takes a few months for the majority of swelling to go down, so patients are able to return to the school in the fall with a nose that is close to the final result.
Is a Teen Rhinoplasty Safe?
Like any surgery, rhinoplasty comes with some risks, so it is important to go to an experienced plastic surgeon to ensure optimal results. Rhinoplasty is a precise procedure, so candidates should choose their surgeons wisely.
Dr. Kassir can correct the nose to meet the patient's standards without reducing the overall strength of the nose, preventing the possibility of a collapsed nasal bridge. This is essential to his technique that prevents the need for a revision after having a procedure with him. This is due to his experience performing over 8,000 rhinoplasties over the past 22 years. You can see from hundreds of our 5-star reviews and thousands of before and afters that our center provides the safest and most pain-free recovery in the U.S. for rhinoplasties. Dr. Kassir also fixes many "botched" rhinoplasties, which is why it's important to book by experience and not price. Dr. Kassir is able to achieve the aesthetic results you truly want, while maintaining natural results to bring out the best “you” you can be.
What Does a Teen Rhinoplasty Cost?
The average cost of a teen rhinoplasty can range from upward from $15,000, depending on what needs to be done and the level of work involved. Many of our patients can find out if our credit providers cover the procedure during the consult. Our cosmetic coordinator will apply with you (this does not affect your credit score); and see what will be covered. We offer payment periods ranging from 6-12 months for our patients. Typically, a range of credit scores are accepted so we suggest booking a consult to see if the remaining amount of the procedure can be covered. Having a summer job or saving for the procedure is also an option. Having more than one procedure done will provide additional savings and reduce the need for multiple OR/anesthesia fees.
