Beverly Hills Teen Rhinoplasty
Because of the prominence of the nose, rhinoplasty is an extremely popular nose surgery amongst teenagers today. A misshaped or asymmetrical nose can be a source of embarrassment and awkwardness in teens. Dr. Ben Talei, at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, is a highly skilled surgeon in the specialty of rhinoplasty.
If your teen has a negative self-image because of his/her nose, Dr. Talei can work together with you and your son or daughter to set realistic goals for rhinoplasty. A patient needs to be between the ages of 15-17 years old so that the nose is fully grown.
A teen rhinoplasty can achieve the same results as a rhinoplasty done on an adult. Dr. Talei can remove humps, straighten the bridge, reshape the tip and nostrils and increase or decrease the size of the nose. All of Dr. Talei’s efforts in surgery will be to provide balance and symmetry to the face.
Rhinoplasty procedures involve two different approaches. An open approach is performed with small incisions across the nose. Meanwhile, the closed approach is performed entirely inside of the nose, eliminating external scars.
Patients should understand that rhinoplasty typically requires 1-2 weeks of healing time. Minor bruising and swelling should be expected immediately following the procedure and activities will be limited. Careful consideration should be taken in the planning of a procedure such as this, so it does not encroach upon school and other commitments.
Dr. Talei is one of the best surgeons in the Beverly Hills area for natural results in rhinoplasty. He has dual fellowship training in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and vascular birthmarks and congenital anomalies with laser surgery. You can trust that your rhinoplasty will naturally reshape your nose, restoring a healthy self-image in your teen.
