Am I Old Enough to Have Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty can be performed on young adults starting at age 15 for women and 17 for men. It is best to wait until a person’s facial features are fully developed before making any cosmetic surgical changes to the nose. It is also very important that a patient be emotionally ready for such a procedure. Some patients are not ready in their teens and therefore should wait until later in life.
Dr. Buonassisi was recently interviewed in a teen rhinoplasty segment with CTV news and Dr. Rhonda Low. This show does a great job of uncovering some of the special considerations and tips we have for our teen patients and their families.
