Teenage Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

The nose job, or rhinoplasty, is the most common cosmetic surgery done in the teens, and according to some reports, its popularity is on the rise. Teenage years are a delicate period in one’s life, and as one matures physically, there is immense peer pressure to look the best.

The nose being the most prominent feature on the face, is often the target of their dislike. But rhinoplasty is one surgery where timing is critical. As a child matures, the bones of the face are growing as well, and prematurely disturbing this facial growth center could lead to abnormal development of the face.  According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the nose has usually completed 90 percent of its growth by the time girls reach the age of 14, and boys reach the age of 16.

It is essential that teenagers should be assessed for physical and mental maturity before accepting them for surgery. Trained and experienced cosmetic surgeons know to ensure, that the youngsters fully understand that the procedure is permanent, the limitations of surgery and that they have realistic expectations of the results of the surgery. If the surgeon suspects Body Dysmorphic Disorder or other psychological issues, then the teenager should be referred for further psychological evaluation.

If the patient is not sure, it is better to delay the surgery, as it can easily be done later but it is very difficult to redo rhinoplasty well.

If you want an opinion, make sure you consult a fully trained plastic and cosmetic surgeon.

Nose job success!

  • Kelly Smith, 26, from Essex, was always insecure about her big nose

A woman who hated her nose for ‘as long as she can remember’ was finally spurred on to go under the knife after a total stranger told her she’d be more beautiful if her feature was made smaller.

Speaking about her nose, Kelly Smith, 26, from Essex, told FEMAIL: ‘Everyone has body hang-ups growing up. Like all teenage girls, I had plenty. But while I grew out of some of the others and became generally happy with my overall appearance, my nose just seemed to get worse with age. And given that it’s right in the centre of your face, it’s not something you can hide away.’

Kelly felt that her feature was too large for her face and never felt able to wear her hair up because she was convinced that her nose dominated her face.

More than the physical impact, was the emotional she experienced. She said: ‘I was unhappy with my appearance, and this showed. I could spend ages doing my hair and make-up, but I couldn’t change my nose, I couldn’t hide it.

‘I’d never catch a glimpse of myself and smile, no matter how long I spent trying to make myself look good, because my nose dominated and overshadowed everything.’

It wasn’t until a complete stranger criticised her nose that she decided to do something about it.

It may surprise you, but many people offering cosmetic surgery are not qualified plastic surgeons, and some may not even be doctors.

So check their credentials, to ensure they have fully accredited plastic surgery training.

Surgical skills improve with experience, so more the experience, the better.

Does the surgeon have practicing rights at a reputable hospital?

Did you get enough time during consultation to ask questions and discuss the pros and cons of the procedure?

Is the clinic easily accessible and are the staff friendly?

Choose well and keep yourself beautiful and safe!
