Age 16 is a typical minimum age.  Having parental support is mandatory at this age.  Good candidates for rhinoplasty may have any of the following nasal issues:

  • Deviated septum
  • Enlarged nasal tip
  • Excessively flared nostrils
  • Crooked or off-center nasal bridge

What to Expect

Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. Each patient's surgical experience will differ due to their individual needs and goals. There are a number of approaches and techniques that can be used during nose surgery, including open and closed rhinoplasty. When augmenting the nose, the surgeon can take cartilage or soft tissues from deep within the nose or the grafts may be harvested from other areas of the body such as the ear or scalp temporal fascia.

Other Considerations

Following surgery, patients can expect to have swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes for approximately 2 weeks. We take special measures to reduce swelling and discomfort with a special blend of local anesthetics and anti inflammation medications. Patients will need to keep their head above their chest to help improve swelling. Congestion is also common following rhinoplasty  and improves over a few weeks. We do not use packing inside the  nose in most cases. . After removing the splints, patients will be able to see and admire their newly shaped and contoured nose.
