Unless you have a major functional deficit, it is better to wait until you are closer to your skeletal maturation.  Your nose will likely change over time until that point.

I don't recommend rhnoplasty surgery on a 14 year old male unless there were some extenuating circumstances. At this age nasal growth is not complete.
