Nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that changes the shape and appearance of the nose by altering the nasal bridge, the tip of the nose, or the nostrils. This procedure is one of the most popular among younger patients, who often grapple with body image and self-esteem issues.
Many teens and young adults are concerned with how their flaws, however minor, are perceived by their peers. When it comes to the nose, there are a variety of irregularities that might make a teen self conscious, including disproportionate size, bumps on the bridge, crooked alignment, or unusual width of the bridge or nostrils. These characteristics might lead the teen to judge their own appearance harshly or suffer criticism from peers. Young patients typically consider undergoing a nose reshaping procedure to address these physical and emotional concerns.
While nose reshaping can help boost a young patient’s confidence, it’s important to remember that plastic surgery should not be used as a “quick fix” for a patient with self-esteem issues and not every patient will be a candidate for the procedure. A young patient considering a rhinoplasty should seek a highly experienced, Board Certified cosmetic surgeon who can help him or her clearly identify the motivations for surgery, as well as outline the risks and benefits associated with the procedure.
