Teen Plastic Surgery in New Jersey

Posted by Peter Hyans, MD, FACS on Sept. 26, 2012, noon

Recent statistics show that New Jersey / New York teens are having cosmetic surgery to improve the way they look and feel!

The most common cosmetic procedure for teens in the New Jersey / New York metropolitan area is nose contouring (also known as a nose job or rhinoplasty).

Why do teens have plastic surgery?

Although teenagers have different reasons for having plastic surgery, most teens want to feel good about themselves. In some cases, teens want to look their best for the prom or graduation. Some parents even give their teens the gift of plastic surgery before high school graduation!

The bottom line is that adolescence is a time when people feel a strong need to “fit in” with other kids. It’s also a time when people form lasting impressions of themselves. For these reasons, the need to look and feel good during the teen years has a significant effect on immediate and future self esteem.

If you are a teenager who would like to have a cosmetic procedure, your New Jersey plastic surgeons, Reza Momeni, MD, and Peter Hyans, MD, FACS, will:

  • Carefully examine you
  • Review your medical history
  • Ask questions about your expectations
  • Show you what is possible with computerized images
  • Answer your questions about the procedure and potential outcome
  • Explain benefits and risks of the procedure

Your plastic surgeon will discuss your concerns, tell you if you are a candidate for surgery, and recommend the procedure that’s best for you. He also will explain what is involved in recovering from the surgery, including what you must to do heal properly and how long you must wait before returning to your activities.

Because it can take a while for swelling to subside after most surgeries, it’s best to schedule plastic surgery far in advance of special events such as graduation ceremonies, the prom, and reunions.

If you are a teen who is interested in learning more about what plastic surgery can do for you, schedule a consultation with us today!
