Each year thousands of people undergo rhinoplasty or surgery of the nose. Teens request rhinoplasty surgery more than any other facial plastic surgery procedure. They may want the procedures for a number of reasons, including changing the shape or size of their nose, balancing their facial features or repairing a breathing or respiratory problem. Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte NC’s best facial plastic surgeon is an expert in performing teen rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Freeman will meet with both the teen and his family for an initial consultation and discuss the details of the procedure. Dr. Freeman does not recommend teen rhinoplasty surgery until the nose is fully formed, typically around age 14 to 15 for women and age 16 to 18 for men.
It is especially important for teens to understand how teen rhinoplasty surgery works and to have realistic goals from the procedure. It is important to remember that teen rhinoplasty surgery will probably not result in the perfect profile or improve your personal life.
Dr. Freeman always meets with both the teen and their parents before any teen rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Freeman will discuss the details of the procedure and evaluate the teen for surgery during this meeting. If he recommends teen rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Freeman will perform the teen rhinoplasty surgery in his state-of-the-art operating suite at his Charlotte NC clinic.
Dr. Freeman will make a small incision within the nose to begin the procedure. This provides Dr. Freeman access and visibility into the internal structure. Most of Dr. Freeman’s patients do not need nasal packing and will see most of the swelling and bruising disappear within ten days.
Dr. M. Sean Freeman is Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon. His expertise and skill make him Charlotte’s best choice for teen rhinoplasty surgery.
