Will Nose Change During Puberty?


In general, we recommend wait until puberty is complete before doing rhinoplasty surgery. For girls this is usually about age 16; for boys this is about age 18. However, over the last 35 years I have done many rhinoplasties on girls who are 15, depending on their physical and emotional maturity.
