I am 16 and I was wondering at what age could I have a nose job?

I am 16 and i have wanted a nose job since I was about 10-11, and I was wondering what age could I have it done and the price range?

I want the bridge of my nose straight because I've got a bump on it and my right nostril reshaped because I've got a lump on the side of the middle of my nose so it looks like one nostril is smaller than the other. I hope that all makes sence.


The changes that you describe can be incorporated in one procedure. A degree of asymmetry between the right and left sides of the nose is unfortunately inevitable, but can be brought to a lower level if it is very noticeable.

With regards to the age, I prefer to the surgery after the age of 18, when the facial development has reached a more stable period, as planning for the changes has to incorporate the context.
