I'm 17 years old and have been wanting a rhinoplasty for a long time now, after driving my father with the facts of the surgery he finally agreed but on some conditions. He wants me to talk to someone who had gone through this procedure so I know what I'm going through, I think this is more to ease his mind because I have already done a lot of research. I live in Minnesota, and my main concern is a humped bridge that sticks out like a sore thumb. So if anyone who had dealt with the same issue or just a rhinoplasty, in general, I would love to hear your story, and maybe email back and forth. Also if you live in this state are their any surgeons you recommend?

We do correction of the nasal hump / rhinoplasty in local anesthesia as walk in walk out surgery, with no hospital stay.There are no bandages and you don't need to stay in the hospital. Results are highly desirable with minor swelling as compared to conventional rhinoplasty. You can fly back home as soon as second day of your surgery.

Dear Kenzie,
As probably you read all over the internet, your body is still changing. No matter the technology applied , your body will still change until you are 21.
Our suggestion is to wait until that age and after that to make the intervention.
As for the after surgery pain, it will be up to 7 days and also bruises, but you will have painkillers and you will manage. Also, some have pain and bruises for 3 days, some for 7..it depends to your body. But nothing too scary or too hard to handle
