A Orange rhinoplasty is often called a nose job and is typically considered to be an adult procedure. However, many Orange teenagers have rhinoplasties performed every year to address birth defects or to repair structural concerns that cause them embarrassment in public. A rhinoplasty can change the general shape of the nose, especially in the bridge or tip of the nose, or it can change the shape, size or location of the nostrils. When an Orange Teenage Rhinoplasty is performed after the age of approximately 16 when the nose is fully grown, revision rhinoplasties are rarely needed.
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.
