Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
In a recent interview with The Saturday Evening Post, Lisa Kudrow admits to undergoing a nose job as a teenager and describes it as “life altering.” Renowned rhinoplasty surgeon Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, Director of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, says it is not uncommon for teens to seek nose jobs.
“What we are hearing from Lisa Kudrow is quite common. When a teenager is self-conscious about a particular aspect of their appearance, particularly the nose as it is the central feature on the face, changing it can significantly boost self-esteem,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Kudrow explains in the interview that before her nose job, she felt “hideous,” but changing the appearance of her nose before starting at a new high school was a “good, good, good change.” Dr. Azizzadeh frequently performs rhinoplasty surgery on teenagers looking to boost their confidence, but he takes the procedure seriously and makes sure the teen does, too.
“It is important that the teenager and his or her parents are on the same page, and that the teen demonstrates they are mature enough to handle the surgery. When the rhinoplasty is done for the right reasons and with realistic expectations, the effect on self-esteem can be great,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is an esteemed facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills whose rhinoplasty expertise makes him one of the most sought after surgeons in the field. With every rhinoplasty, he stresses bringing balance to the face and providing natural looking results.
“It is crucial to any successful rhinoplasty that the results fit the patient’s face and all facial features are in harmony. I spend a lot of time with each patient before surgery discussing their goals and doing extensive computerized imaging to ensure we get the look they want,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery, recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” Dr. Azizzadeh is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
