A Los Angeles Teenage Rhinoplasty can be performed at the reputable OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach. Our Clinique serves clients of all ages and especially strives to help teenagers feel welcome and comfortable. Many Los Angeles teenagers feel that their noses are not beautiful or that they are misshapen. This can lead to feelings of embarrassment, especially among peers. A Los Angeles rhinoplasty can address these concerns by changing the shape and structure of the nose.
Dr. Tavoussi performs Orange Teenage Rhinoplasties at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center, which serves all of Orange County. Most rhinoplasties take under two hours to perform although more complicated procedures can take longer than this. After the teenager has recovered slightly at the Surgery Center, he or she will be discharged home for full recovery. Dr. Tavoussi will write a prescription to help control pain at home. Patients will also notice some swelling during the first couple of weeks and up to a month or two post-operatively. Cold compresses may help the swelling, and patients should keep the head elevated at all times during the first 24 hours following surgery. Patients should also be careful with their noses following Orange rhinoplasty surgery by avoiding pulling clothing over the head, washing the face with care and avoiding the sun.
Teenagers in Los Angeles love being able to recuperate at home rather than in a hospital. It gives them a sense of freedom and comfort. They will be in some pain especially for the first day post-operatively. However, Dr. Tavoussi will prescribe pain medication to help with this, and patients can also use cold compresses on the nose to decrease swelling. Patients will need to return to the Clinique within a day or two following Los Angeles teenage rhinoplasty surgery for the doctor to examine the incisions and ensure all is healing well. Many times, there will be no scars left after the sites have healed.
