A teenage nose job — is your son or daughter ready?
If some young person in your Charlotte NC family is interested in a teenage nose job, first you have to make sure he or she is old enough. No matter how much a teenager wants to change something about his or her features, surgery should be avoided until his or her face has fully matured. This is around age 15 in girls and 17 in boys.
Second, you have to make sure the prospective patient is committed to a teenage nose job. You’ll know his or her maturity level better than anyone else, but the surgeon has spoken with many patients both teenage and adult and can probably give you some insights about this particular case. Be prepared to listen.
Planning for a teenage nose job and recovery
You’re going to want the nose job to be done at a time where your son or daughter can spend a lot of time at home in Charlotte NC recovering — either the holidays (too late for that this year) or summer. If your child wears glasses, he or she should get used to wearing prescription contacts beforehand. For the next few weeks, he or she should not do any exertion that would raise blood pressure. Garments that have to be pulled over the head should also be avoided. Contact with anyone who has a cold or flu must be avoided.
