I am 16 years old, is it possible to have rhinoplasty?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 13 November 2011


I am 16 years old, but have been wanting to have nose reshaping for ages now. I have considered and researched it a lot. At my age is it possible for it to happen?


I cannot speak for other surgeons, but I tend to carry out cosmetic rhinoplasty after the age of 18. This is primarily because the face enters a period of slower changes, and evaluating the changes for the nose needs to be done in the context of the other facial features.

You may well find that other surgeons take a different view on this and it would be worthwhile enquiring with several practices.
