Is there an age limit for nose surgery?

I'm 16 years old and I have a complex about my nose, it is too large and asymmetrical. Can I undergo plastic surgery at my age? Are there age limits for this procedure?

A rhinoplasty can be performed once the nose growing's over, i.e. at more or les 15 -16 yo. However, I think that a psychological maturity is also preferable to undergo such an operation. That's why I do usually rhinoplkasty after 18 YO.

Yes, in the elderly if they have an extremely large nose because their skin is not elastic.

Normally, lower age limit is 16, while there is no upper age limit, as long as the person is healthy and other preoperative criteria is met.

Greetings! i was hoping you could answer my questions.
I'm a 15 years old male ,and my nose looks ok from the front view ,but it sticks out from the side view (3 cm).2 years ago my nose was small and fine,but looks like it grew a lot since then.I also have small head which makes things even worse.So my question is.. Will my face and head grow more making my nose appear normal again? or will i need to have surgery??

Thank you for reading all that.

Until 18-20 yy. of age the nose skeletal structure is going to rearrange and settle. So a rhinoplasty would be better to be performed after that age.

If your growth is stopped, you are ready for nose surgery

Rhinoplasty can be done usually after the age of 15-16 years old. But as long you are a minor you need parents written approval for doing the surgery.

Sure, you can undergo nose job at this age.
A rhinoplasty procedure is a good option for you if:
•Your facial growth is complete and you are 13 years of age or older
•You are physically healthy
•You do not smoke
•You have specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance

@ years after first mens is a good time. Growth is over by that time. In males an x ray of the hand should be taken to see if growth is over
