If your son or daughter wants a nose job, make sure he or she is old enough — around age 15 in girls and 17 in boys. The Christmas season is the perfect time for teen rhinoplastyg — they can spend their break at home recovering. But facial plastic surgeons are likely to be very busy this time of year — so the time to make the appointment is now, assuming your surgeon isn’t already booked.
First, make sure your son or daughter knows what he or she wants. This will mean a long talk with the surgeon and, if possible, computer imaging of his or her face with the new nose. Also, go over your son or daughter’s medical history to make sure there aren’t any conditions that would make rhinoplasty a bad idea. Your son or daugher obviously shouldn’t be smoking, should also stay away from ibuprofen, vitamin E supplements or herbal supplements that might cause blood thinning, and should start wearing prescription contacts rather than glasses.
