Age plays a crucial role in any cosmetic surgery. A person may be too young for the procedure, or too old that multiple surgeries are required to achieve natural-looking results. Take, for instance, a rhinoplasty in San Diego. An early or advanced age definitely impacts the nose job, especially its results.
Too Young to Tweak Your Nose?
Getting a nose job while you’re young could certainly be life-altering, and Lisa Kudrow is one of many who felt that way. Similar to many teens who request the procedure, the Hollywood actress suffered a tough social life because of a prominently imperfect nose. The nose job she got at 16 turned her life around for the better. ABC News entertainment reporter Michael Rothman has the story:
“I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous,” she said. ”I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”
Before her surgery, Kudrow admitted that it was hard making friends growing up. When she moved from sixth to seventh grade and to junior high, she was actually dropped by two friends.
When you’re still in your teens, however, your body may still change. That said, having a teenage rhinoplasty may set you up for repeat procedures. However, advancements in technology and techniques in surgery today have improved the results of nose jobs done on younger individuals. You can enjoy a beautifully shaped nose longer if the procedure is done by a skilled surgeon in a state-of-the-art setting.
Older and Bolder with a New Nose
Now, when you get the nose enhancement surgery at an older age, the other parts of your face need to be considered. The area around the eyes, the cheeks, and the chin, in particular, may be sagging or filled with wrinkles. These parts may be surgically improved together with your nose through a facelift or eyelid surgery in San Diego for a more balanced look.
Whether you’re young or old, you need a reputable surgeon like Dr. John Alexander II of Alexander Cosmetic Surgery to perform your procedure. The specialist can give you an in-depth consultation and exceedingly good service for a more satisfactory result.
