Teen Rhinoplasty

Although rhinoplasty is the most common cosmetic surgery performed on teens, there is some controversy surrounding cosmetic surgery for teenagers. However, when proper counseling is done with both the teen and their parents or guardians, the procedure can be very rewarding. Changing the shape or size of the nose can have a positive impact on a teen’s self-esteem, especially if it has been an area of ridicule from peers or they are self-conscious about their nose. It can also be performed to correct breathing issues from a traumatic injury to the nose or a congenital defect.

Nose reshaping. What would you like to improve about your nose?

Dr. Khosh specializes in rhinoplasty for people of all ages and ethnic groups. His dual board certification and extensive experience make him the right choice when considering a rhinoplasty for a teen. He will meet with the teen and their parents for a private consultation to ensure that the teen is a good candidate for the procedure and understands all the risks, including participating in contact sports.

Teen Nose Job

One of the factors to consider when contemplating a nose job for a teenager is whether the nose has finished growing. In most cases, this is around 13-14 for girls and 15-16 for boys. It is important that the nose is fully developed to ensure future revisions will not need to be made. Dr. Khosh will carefully examine any teen patient to evaluate the septum, bones and cartilage to ensure they are at a stage where a rhinoplasty is an option.

To schedule a consultation with Dr. Khosh for teen rhinoplasty, contact our office in Manhattan today. If approved for the surgery, teens can expect healing to require at least 10 days. Scheduling the surgery during school breaks is generally advised.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!

AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
