Yes you can certainly have a rhinoplasty surgery at 53. It sounds like you've been bothered by your nose for a long time and making some changes to your nasal appearance would make a big difference in your life.
You can check out my web reference link below to read about long, over-projected nose rhinoplasty along with seeing some before and after example photos.
No, it is not too late to have a rhinoplasty surgery. The goal of the rhinoplasty is to reduce and refine the nose so the focus will be on your eyes/cheek area!
Dear Bst53grl, You would be an excellent candidate for rhinoplasty surgery or possibly septorhinoplasty surgery if the "septum" needs addressing. Upon consultation and direct examination a surgical plan would be suggested. Age 53 is not to late to have a rhinoplasty. During consultation you will be able to have digital imaging performed which will allow you to see the proposed surgical results. This is an exciting time to see the changes that will be made to your nose and for you especially something you have long waited for. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
It is possible to have your nose done at any age, and 53 is certainly not too old. The rhinoplasty procedure can certainly address shortening the long nose, narrowing the large tip, and narrowing wide nostrils. The only way to see if you need additional deviated septum surgery will require an in- person examination and consultation. For many examples of long noses we have shortened, please see the link below

All the best,

As long as you are in good health, your age will not be a consideration if you want to have a rhinoplasty and a revision of septal surgery. Although I want to see more than a frontal view of your nose I don't think you will need augmentation.
I have operated on patients in their 70's. Rhinoplasty will certainly have profound affect on your facial appearance. You will need refinement and reduction rather than augmentation of your nose. You will need cartilagenous support at the tip to keep the new tip in its position.
I think you have answered your own question. If the appearance of your nose bothers you get it fixed.
Hello! Thank you for your question! Age alone is not a contraindication
to a surgical procedure. There are a few medical
comorbidities that contribute to a higher risk during any surgical
procedure including infections, wound complications, delayed wound
healing, bleeding, anesthetic risks, etc. Factors such as diabetes,
hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart problems, lung problems,
etc are more common in the elderly. However, if you are healthy, or
these conditions are well-controlled, you would certainly still be a
candidate for a surgical procedure. If your complaints or desires are
great enough to consider the surgical option, I would seek a
consultation with a plastic surgeon to discuss your complaints and go
over the options as well as risks and benefits of the procedure.
should obtain medical clearance from your primary care physician that
are at an acceptable risk for undergoing a surgical procedure. For
elective or aesthetic procedures, your surgeon may want to get you to a
reasonable health status prior to consideration for a procedure.
Discuss all of
your medical comorbidities and medication with your surgeon prior and
discuss these risks. Also, discuss this with your anesthesiologist as
proper monitoring and medications will be watched closely. This
procedure should still be very safe for you and hope for an
uncomplicated course with an excellent result! Hope that this helps!
