Adolescents and teenagers are very conscious of their appearance. When a misshapen, small or larger nose impacts their facial balance, it can also affect their self-confidence. While many cosmetic procedures are reserved for adults, rhinoplasty is often performed on teens to improve their facial balance. Our surgery center offers teen rhinoplasty for younger patients with misshapen noses at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
The nose shape and size can affect the facial appearance. Genetics is the most common reason for a misshapen or unbalanced nose, but there are medical conditions and injuries that can impact nose shape. Regardless of the reason, adolescents and teens with an unattractive nose may feel self-conscious of their appearance. Rhinoplasty can be a solution for some teens that are affected by an unusual nose shape.
