Question

My daughter is 17 years old, can she have rhinoplasty with parental consent?

Her nose is an African type with no definition. Is it possible if you could use implants or cartilage?

Answer

My usual approach to ethnic augmentation rhinoplasty involves using rib cartilage grafting for structural support.

I'm afraid that I do not carry out this type of surgery before the age of 18, and even at 18 I strongly encourage family support and contribution to the planning and post-operative recovery.
