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. As long as the patient is healthy enough to have anesthesia, and has appropriate expectations, rhinoplasty is a viable option.

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. For patients who have undergone rhinoplasty in the past it is recommended that they wait a period of one year for the scar to mature. Simply stated, you are clear on both of these counts and more than able to have the surgery that you wanted originally. I wish you all the best in your journey. Be healthy and be well, james m.

Good Question: You are going to get many opinions on this controversial topic. 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. Since individual maturity is highly variable, you are best to consult a rhinoplasty expert in person. ...Read more

I do not use packing on the inside of the nose, which was responsible for a lot of the swelling, bruising, and pain commonly associated with the procedure. Most patients report little discomfort following the surgery. ...Read more
