Find the best surgeon for my child’s rhinoplasty
I need to find the best surgeon for my child’s rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is usually done to make the patient look better, rather than to fix a medical problem. For this reason, it isn’t usually done until the patient’s nose has stopped growing — about 15 for girls and 17 for boys. Even in cases of a deviated septum, most surgeons would usually rather wait until the nose is fully developed.
Unfortunately, my son had a skateboarding accident last month, and his nose healed crooked — too crooked to be left that way. It’s interfering with his breathing to the point where he can’t sleep through the night. He needs a rhinoplasty as soon as possible, so he can be healed before school starts. He may need a second one later, when his nose is fully grown. In the meantime, I want to make sure that the surgeon I find to do the work is the most skilled surgeon in Charlotte NC, with the most delicate touch and the best sense of how nasal cartilage grows and develops in boys.
I can’t give him any aspirin or ibuprofen before the surgery, or feed him anything for six hours before surgery. The hard part will be keeping him indoors for several weeks afterward.
Charlotte’s most experienced rhinoplasty surgeon
Dr. M. Sean Freeman is the most experienced rhinoplasty surgeon in Charlotte NC. He has been certified by two different surgery boards, the American Board of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He has devoted himself completely to facial plastic surgery, including nose jobs, since 1988. With the help of computer imaging, he can show various possible ways your nose can look when the surgery is done, allowing a teenager to describe precisely the results he or she wants from the operation.
