Many teenagers and young adults consider undergoing rhinoplasty. A common procedure, rhinoplasty can be performed to correct a nose that has been misshaped due to injury or simply to create a better balance among other facial features.
At Abramson, we see a large number of teenage patients who wish to make cosmetic changes to their noses. While there is no specific age requirement for rhinoplasty, it is important that patients be both physically and emotionally mature before they undergo the procedure.
Dr. Abramson performs an extensive consultation with each patient to determine whether he or she is a candidate for rhinoplasty. An open dialog among the patient, parent(s), and Dr. Abramson is a vital part of the process as Dr. Abramson wants to ensure that a patient’s motivations and expectation for rhinoplasty surgery are in agreement.
If you’re a teenager (or the parent of one) who is considering teenage rhinoplasty, call (404) 297-1789 to schedule a consultation. If you’re a teenager who would like to talk to another teenager about his or her experience with rhinoplasty, we can arrange that also.
