WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR A TEENAGER TO HAVE A RHINOPLASTY?
A large number of teenagers have rhinoplasty between 15 and 18 years of age. Females usually develop earlier than males and it is safe to perform a rhinoplasty once a female is having regular menses. Males develop slightly slower and a large number of rhinoplasty procedures in males are performed between 17 and 19 years old.
There are many variables to consider when thinking about a rhinoplasty for yourself or your child. You should always consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon before making any decisions. In addition to gauging physical and emotional maturity, your doctor will talk with you about what to expect after the surgery.
