Candidates for Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is a good option for most basically healthy teenagers and adults who are concerned about the size, shape, or position of their noses. Nose surgery is also appropriate for individuals with a deviated septum or other structural abnormality that causes breathing problems. Girls should wait until about age 14 or 15 before having nose surgery to ensure that the nose has finished developing, while boys should wait a few years longer.
For patients who are considering rhinoplasty to address functional or cosmetic concerns with their nose, selecting a qualified facial plastic surgeon is of the utmost importance.
