I think I want a rhinoplasty, but...

I'm young, only 26. I'm worried that a nose job would not look good over time. Can anyone point me toward photos of how nose corrections age over long periods of time? Secondly, I hate how my nose looks from the front and the side both, does this require more radical surgery to correct both angles? I'd additionally appreciate some feedback about how drastic a change I might need. I feel like my nose dominates my face. I'd just like it not to be the first thing that people notice!

If you find the right doctor it should be fine. I had mine done at 18 but in my thirties the tip started drooping. The surgeon said the previous doctor took to much cartilage so i just had it done again last week. It is totally worth it even having had to do twice, i can tell the results this time will stick! Good luck!

Thanks for your post! I had my revision rhinoplasty in 2002 and it hasn't changed much in that time. If I'd picked a good surgeon the first time I doubt it would've changed much at all.

Choosing the best rhinoplasty surgeon you can can make all the difference. Here's what doctors say about choosing the right rhino surgeon for you.

Btw, I was 27 when I had my first rhinoplasty and it was a great age. I had to live with my huge schnoz long enough that it built character in me, but had my nose improved young enough that I've had many years to enjoy it.
