Rhinoplasty – Charlotte, NC

If a teen wants a nose job

Rhinoplasty for teenagers is becoming more and more popular, but you still need to make sure the teen is old enough. Partly this is for medical reasons — a girl’s nose hasn’t finished growing and developing until about 15, and a boy’s nose hasn’t finished growing until about 17. He or she also needs to be mature enough to understand what he or she wants and make the decision.

The hardest part for any teenager will be managing the recovery from rhinoplasty. Your son or daughter will need to spend the first few days indoors, getting plenty of sleep while keeping his or her head elevated. For the next few weeks, he or she should not do anything that might raise the blood pressure in his or her head. He or she should also not wear any garments that need to be pulled over the head, and should not blow his or her nose. It may be several weeks before the swelling goes down enough to decide how well the operation has worked.
