Most teens spend a great deal of time in front of the mirror and many of these teens are deeply unhappy or dissatisfied with what they see in that mirror. Teens prefer plastic surgery to fix the parts of their body they believed are flawed so they better fit in with their peers. The majority of these procedures is rhinoplasty, a procedure designed to improve the shape and appearance of the nose. Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top rhinoplasty surgeon performs more teen rhinoplasty surgery procedures than anyone else in the Southeast United States.
Dr. Freeman recommends that a teen’s nose be fully formed before any type of facial plastic surgery is performed, usually around age 14 to 16 for females and age 16 to 18 for males. Before surgery, Dr. Freeman meets with the teen and their family and spends a great deal of time explaining the surgery and discussing the teen’s goals.
Dr. Freeman is board-certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and his skill and experience make him the absolute best choice for a teen rhinoplasty. Most teen rhinoplasty procedures are performed in Dr. Freeman’s Charlotte NC clinic, The Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery. Here, Dr. Freeman operates in a state-of-the-art operating suite. During the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Freeman augments or alters the bone and cartilage of the nose’s internal structure. He typically does this through small incisions made within the nose. Most patients require no nasal packing and will have moderate bruising from seven to ten days following surgery. If you are considering rhinoplasty surgery, call Dr. Freeman’s Charlotte NC clinic to schedule a consultation appointment.
