Who is a Candidate for Rhinoplasty or Nose Job?
Healthy men, women, and teens looking to improve the appearance and/or function of their nose may be excellent candidates for rhinoplasty or nose reshaping. Younger patients may be appropriate candidates based on several factors, including physical and emotional maturity. During a consultation, an experienced Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon like Dr. Kenneth Yu will work with you to help determine the best course of action that will deliver the most appealing results.
What is the Recovery like from Rhinoplasty Surgery?
Rhinoplasty surgery is generally performed under general anesthesia. When performed on younger children, rhinoplasty may be carried out in a hospital setting. For those patients who need a small correction, the treatment may be performed non-surgically in Dr. Kenneth Yu’s office under local anesthesia.
