Young people are particularly fond of rhinoplasty. That is what a recent review by Scottsdale, AZ clinic Sono Bello has found. In fact, between the ages of 13 and 19, it is the most common procedure, as was shown by American Society of plastic Surgeons. In older age categories, the procedure also ranks in the top 5. Here, Sono Bello reviews whether or not a nose job is suitable for people or not.
Sono Bello Reviews the Do’s and Dont’s of Rhinoplasty
Sono Bello has release a helpful review on the amp about when a nose job is and isn’t appropriate. Many people are unhappy with their nose, but that does not necessarily mean that they should change their nose. Indeed, following a number of comments, they have released a list of the things that should determine whether or not someone is a good candidate. The list is as follows:
- Maturity of the nose. Many young people aren’t happy with the way they look and want to have a nose job. Sono Bello will only provide to people who have completed growing. This generally means being at least 15 years old, at which point the bones and cartilage are mature.
- Emotional maturity. This is perhaps even more important. Young people do not always have a full understanding of the purpose of a nose job, or of the associated things. Surgeons should assess how mature they are of mind before agreeing to offer the procedure.
- Realistic expectations. A nose job can do a lot, but it cannot do everything. It is very important that patients, regardless of their age, understand exactly what the result of the procedure will be, so that they don’t end up disappointed with the result.
- Body dysmorphia. This condition is becoming increasingly common. It is estimated that around 1 in 50 people suffers from this psychiatric condition in which people perceive their body as flawed. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America has recognized the disorder and warns surgeons to be mindful of it, as people who suffer from this condition will not be satisfied with the result of the nose job as it doesn’t address their underlying condition.
Sono Bello hopes that these words of advice are of benefit to people looking into having rhinoplasty, and particularly young people. They have also offered another piece of advice, namely that those looking to have a nose job should try to find a surgeon who has specialized specifically in rhinoplasty. This specialization enables them to create true images of the result of the surgery, which is important for the realistic expectations, and they are also able to cast an honest look and whether what the patient wants is achievable at all.
It is very common for cosmetic and plastic surgeons to specialize in a certain procedure and for good reason. Each procedure requires different skills and knowledge. Hence, a surgeon who specializes in breast augmentations should not be asked to perform rhinoplasty.
