Aging affects of narrowing the nasal bones
I've never seen this happen nor have I heard of it happening. Of course, along with narrowing your nasal bones, it will be important to adjust the tip accordingly
Have a question?
Ask a doctor
Will narrowing the nasal bones cause face to look "aged?"
I have not observed the nasolabial folds to be altered in hundreds of older rhinoplasty patients.

Narrowing nose bones
In my experience, narrowing the nasal bones does not have any effect on the nasolabial folds or "aged" appearance. Of course, if bones are narrowed when they don't need to be, or not narrowed when they should be, then the proportions of the new nose will be altered adversely.
IMO, you would be better off to refine and narrow the nasal tip than touch your nasal bones. The refinement in the nasal tip involves the removal of a small amount of cartilage. The down time is minimal as there is little swelling or black and blue. The total cost is $4100 which includes the board certified professional fee, board certified anesthesia fee, and medicare approved surgicenter fee. Hope this helps.
