The Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedure Among Teens

The most popular cosmetic surgery procedure amongst teens in the US is rhinoplasty aka “nose job”. For some people, a misshapen or disproportionate nose can become a source of insecurity, and for teens it can be especially hard. Nasal surgery aims to reshape the nose and improve its appearance.

Before considering nasal surgery, teens and parents need to remember that the nose first needs to reach adult size. This happens at age 16 for girls and age 17 for boys. Once the nose has reached its mature size, the next step is to book a consultation with your plastic surgeon. The consultation allows teens and their parents to have an honest conversation about what a rhinoplasty can accomplish and set realistic expectations.

Rhinoplasty is not just a cosmetic procedure. It can also be used to fix or enhance the function of the nose. Correcting the nasal passage or repairing cartilage can result in better airflow for breathing. Enhancing the appearance of the nose by removing humps or straightening the bridge can also drastically improve self-image, resulting in greater confidence in everyday life.

Although the nose job is completed as one day surgery, just like with any surgery, there is a recovery period. Teens and adults alike should remember that after surgery there will be swelling and minor discomfort, which subsides in about 1-2 weeks. Dr. Brian Peterson will give instructions on everything from how to keep the surgical site clean to when to take any prescribed medications.

If you or your teen is exploring the option of rhinoplasty, book a consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Peterson at his Kelowna clinic today at (250) 868-9099.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
