What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty generally refers to surgery that’s performed on the nose. It’s often thought of as a “nose job,” because it’s done for cosmetic reasons. Some people want to change the shape or size of their nose or nostrils, get rid of bumps, or reshape the tip of the nose.
Are you a candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
Anyone can be considered for rhinoplasty, as long as their nose and facial structures have fully developed, otherwise nose surgery may interfere with normal growth. Surgery can usually be done on girls after the age of 14, while boys should wait until after they reach the age of 15, but your doctor will determine the right age if you have a teen who’s interested in nose surgery.
