So you’re interested in teen rhinoplasty
If you want to get teen rhinoplasty, the first thing is to make sure you’re old enough. If you’re male, you should be 17 before you get a nose job. If you’re female, you should be 15. The idea is to make sure your nasal tissues are fully formed and won’t change after the surgery.
The surgeon will also want to make sure you’re mature enough. You probably have friends, or other kids you know of in Charlotte, NC, who will go to stupid lengths to please or impress others. Kids who are always taking selfies, or who keep trying to look like the perfectly photographed and airbrushed pictures of stars they see online.Facial plastic surgeons know about these kids too, and they’ll want to make sure you’re not one of them. Be prepared for a long discussion of your reasons for doing this, what you hope to get out of it and how long you’ve wanted it.
Getting ready for teen rhinoplasty and recovery
We’re going to assume you aren’t in the habit of smoking or drinking, but for the record, doing either of these things before surgery could mess with the healing process. You should also avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E supplements or some herbal supplements. Your surgeon will tell you which supplements to avoid. If you wear glasses, you should replace them with prescription contacts and learn to use them before surgery,so you’ll be able to manage afterward without having glasses resting on your nose.
For the next few weeks, don’t do any heavy exercise else that might raise the blood pressure in your head. You also need to avoid any garments that you have to pull over your head, such as T-shirts — especially if they’re tight. You also need do a lot of hand-washing and keep contact with others to a minimum for a few weeks, so you don’t catch anything that might make you sneeze.
