Youngest Age To Have Rhinoplasty
Is there an age after which cosmetic rhinoplasty probably isn't a good idea? A family member (38) is considering...
No age limit: Cosmetic rhinoplasty has no age limit. Certainly 38 yo is fine. I have performed functional rhinoplasty on healthy patients up in their 70's and early 80's.

Is there an age limit for having a revision rhinoplasty? I'm 59, and i'd like to have a revision rhinoplasty. I was never completely happy with the original surgery which i got done 10 years ago. The surgeon wanted a lot of extra money to redo it. Is it t
I : I like this question as there is an age limit - just in the opposite direction. Rhinoplasty, if performed at too early of an age (before facial growth is completed) can cause unwanted changes in the developing face.

The goal of your doctor is to do no harm: operating too early can disrupt the growth plate and stunt your son's normal nasal growth.

Can I get a nose job at 17 years of age with out my parents permission? Im very insecure about my nose but my parent disagree with surgery.
Injectable filler: Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed with an injectable filler such as restylane, Radiesse or juvederm. Only certain "nose shapes" lend themselves to non-surgical shaping. Large noses that require "reduction" are not well suited to this technique. Noses that require augmentation of the nasal bridge, noses that have minor contour irregularities, and narrow noses are the best candidates. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Surprisingly good: Most patients are very pleasantly surprised with the recovery after rhinoplasty. The most uncomfortable aspect is probably the limited breathing the through the nose the first week after surgery, but the pain is usually far less than what patients anticipate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
