This is a 15 year old young lady who disliked her nose from the time she can remember. She felt that it was a distraction on her very feminine face and of course, it is! She is right. No sense in telling a person that has such a prominent nose that it is really nothing because she lives with it every day. The front view shows her one year earlier and she had her procedure about 8 months later. It is a common question to ask at what age it is appropriate to operate on someone"s nose such that it will not be changing much anymore. The answer to that comes in two parts. At age 5 the head and its external parts are over 80 % of their eventual size. We will fix the ears of young children that are prominent at this age so they are not teased in school. However, it is better with a nose reshaping to wait until the teenage years (14-19) to perform this procedure. Of course, the patients wish that they had it several years prior as they are very embarassed with a prominent nose and HATE side view pictures and pictures in general. This patient has a chin that is not prominent and therefore, her nose does have that "beak like" appearance and distracts from her many very attractive features. If you examine her nose as in the pre op front photo, you will see a boxy nose and a drooping tip. She does not have a girl nose but more "manlike". From the side view, there is the reasonable hump and when she smiles, the tip droops. The patient is seen 4 months post op. Notice on the front view that you are not looking at the long-like nose and you are now seeing her other features rather than her nose! On the angle and side views you can see what others see while talking to her or watching her in observation or conversation. I doubt you would say anything about her profiles other than "really pretty girl". No more comments on the one thing that was distracting on her face...her nose. I did a closed nasoplasty and therefore there is no scar on the bottom of the nose. No need for it. The entire procedure is done through the nostrils and with fiberoptic visualization. Happy young lady!
