Victoria Secret’s top model Bella Hadid shared that she underwent nose surgery at the age of 14.
The news of Bella Hadid’s teenage nose reshaping at such a young age caught the attention of many and validated the rumours surrounding her procedure.
In this piece, we’ll delve into Bella Hadid’s decision to have a nose job as a teenager, the potential risks linked to the surgery, and UK guidelines on the matter. Plus, I’ll offer my thoughts on this surprising revelation about the model.
On March 15, Vogue released its intimate interview with supermodel Bella Hadid.
In the cover story, Hadid shared her experience on intimate topics such as managing mental health issues and dealing with an eating disorder.
What’s more noticeable is Bella Hadid’s teenage rhinoplasty confession. The 25-year old Victoria Secret supermodel who’s been featured in Tatler many times admitted that she had a nose job when she was 14.
Teenage rhinoplasty is more complicated than adult rhinoplasty.
Was supermodel Bella Hadid too young for the nose job?
Those who are in great health can get a nose job at different points in their lives. However, patients are recommended not to get nose jobs until their noses are fully grown.
Typically, this occurs at ages 14 and up for females. For males, this typically occurs at ages 15 and up. In addition, it’s best to get teenage rhinoplasty once the person stops growing in terms of height and shoe size.
Due to the popularity of nose jobs, the UK government has released regulations related to it.
In the UK, those aged 18 and up can get a nose job by themselves.
However, the General Medical Council (GMC) states that teenagers below the age of 18 can get a nose job if it’s in their best interest. For instance, a teenager who’s bullied at school can get a nose job if they and their parents consent to it.
Celebrities usually deny surgery because they are afraid of being judged by the public.
Celebrities often get famous and successful, thanks to cosmetic surgery. In some cases, celebrities regret it.
However, being completely honest about their transformations help the public see that cosmetic surgery is something not to be ashamed of, since it helps people increase their confidence and self-respect.
Risks of teen rhinoplasty include safety and mental well-being.
Here are the risks of teenage rhinoplasty:
As an alternative, teenagers can get non-surgical rhinoplasty.
As an alternative, teenagers who want to enhance their appearance without going under the knife can get non-surgical nose jobs instead.
Patients and their parents must carefully discuss teenage rhinoplasty.
Understanding the procedure and ensuring it is the right choice for you or your child is crucial.
You must also remember that improvement triumphs over perfection. Furthermore, patients must manage their expectations and parental support must be extended to them.
As for me, Dr. Julian De Silva, one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the UK, I think that anyone who wishes to have a nose job must have the right reasons. They must also be mature enough and have the full support of their parents.
In addition, I think it’s best for teenagers to have a nose job at the age of 16+. This makes the risk for complications extremely low. If you have any doubts, I suggest waiting until you turn 18 or over 20.
