In the world of a teenager, looks are everything. Young adults are trying to figure out who they are, what they want to do and where they want to go in life. When they do not like the appearance of their nose, it can impact their entire self-image. In Orange County, more teens are turning to the rhinoplasty procedure as a solution, and they are thrilled with the results they are receiving.
“Cosmetic surgery is becoming increasingly popular among teen patients,” said Dr. Kevin Sadati. “The rhinoplasty is particularly beneficial because it improves the facial harmony in a natural and subtle way. It allows teens to feel good about their appearance and subsequently feel more confident in themselves.”
Newport Beach teens who are interested in improving the appearance of their nose should note that there are some restrictions on teen patients. The nose must be fully developed before the procedure can be performed. In general, girls must be between 15 and 16 years old to have the rhinoplasty while boys should be between 17 and 18 years old.
Any patient who is a minor must have permission from their parent or guardian prior to having the procedure performed. In general, most parents approve of this procedure when it is performed by an expert facial plastic surgeon who has the best interest of the patient in mind. Dr. Kevin Sadati works to provide all of his teen patients with the natural-looking results that they need to feel beautiful inside and out.
“When a teen feels confident in themselves, they will go on to do great things,” noted Dr. Kevin Sadati. “They will no longer be worrying about how they look or what others think about them. Instead, they can focus on the amazing things that they want to do in their life.”
The rhinoplasty procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, and generally requires about 7-10 days of recovery. Teen patients are advised to have this surgery performed during scheduled breaks from school.
Teenagers who are interested in having a nose job performed are invited to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Kevin Sadati.
