Question

How old do you have to be to get Rhinoplasty surgery done?

Answer

There isn't a universal answer to your question. In my practice, I prefer to carry out cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery after the age of 18, when the facial developments becomes slower.

Other surgeons may take a different view, but in general it is believed to be preferable to allow the development of the nose to be relatively complete before interfering with surgery, and this tends to happen after the age of 15-16.
