Teen Rhinoplasty + Septoplasty

This is a 19 year old girl who was getting ready to go off to college. She presented with a large overhanging nose and troubled breath. This was corrected with an open rhinoplasty with a submucus resection and septoplasty (straightening of the septum). Two months later the nose is well healed and the patient can finally breath with ease. It is smaller and every-so-slightly elevated with a very attractive natural appearance. It does not look like a "nose job" and this, together with the superb result, makes her very happy.
