I am 16 and would be looking for reduction rhinoplasty.

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

Asked on 04 August 2012


I am 16 and would be looking for reduction rhinoplasty, I just want to know a few things:

would I need my parents permission? I am 16 so I really hope that I would not, imagine how embarrassing that would be!

what are the chances of ending up with a deformed nose? How wrong can the surgery go? If it does go wrong or I don't like the appearance could I have it redone for free if I give notice within a week or something?

roughly how much would it cost? Could I possibly get a reduction since I am only 16...?


I am afraid that in my practice I do not carry out cosmetic rhinoplasty before patients reach at least the age of 18, primarily in relation to the facial development timeline.

You can inquire also with other colleagues as they may indeed take a different view on this aspect.
