While few cosmetic surgeries are recommended for teens or adolescents, rhinoplasty is one of the procedures that is often performed for this age group. The nose is a facial feature that has tremendous impact on the aesthetics of the face. For teens that are self-conscious of their nose size or shape, rhinoplasty is an option to help them feel more confident in their appearance. Dr. Gary Linkov is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who understands the plight of teens who desire a new look for their nose and can help them achieve the desired result.
The nose is a defining feature of the face and may be distracting if it is too large or misshapen. Teens and adolescents that are concerned with the shape or size of their nose may lack confidence in their appearance. A rhinoplasty makes the alterations needed to create harmony of the facial features, improving overall appearance and a teen’s self-confidence. This can be a rewarding experience if it is done for the right reasons and proper consideration is given by both the teen and their parents.
