When the time is right

Dr. M.

The right reasons for surgery

There are as many reasons for teen rhinoplasty surgery as there are teens.  The important thing is that the teen understands what the possible results can be and is comfortable with the entire procedure.  Common reasons for requesting teen rhinoplasty surgery include fixing an aesthetic concern such as a hump or a pointy tip, correcting an imbalance in the facial features, and correcting functional problems such as breathing or sinus congestion.

If a teen is bullied or harassed because of the shape or size of their nose, they may turn to teen rhinoplasty surgery as a means of eliminating the teasing or name-calling.  When your teen is considering teen rhinoplasty surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Freeman to discuss the procedure and the realistic expectations for results.
