Question

Is it possible, with parental consent, to have nose surgery at the age of 16?

Answer

My approach regarding aesthetic rhinoplasty is that I do not carry out the surgery until the age of 18, as the face is still undergoing significant changes during the teenage years, and the rate of change decreases closer to 20.
