Can I get a nose job at 15? I want to fix a deviated septum and also to sculpt my nose
8 months ago
I have a deviated septum. And i can't breathe well. So i went to a doctor and he told me I was too young for the surgery. That I should wait until I reach 18. And I was waiting to reach the 18 like since i was 12. But i can't wait that long anymore. A lot of people of my school make fun of my nose. And make stupid jokes. I act like i don't care. But actuaIly I feel really ugly. Please help me :(

When you have stopped growing, you can have a septo-rhinoplasty if you are sure of the rhinoplasty changes you want. I have done 14 year-olds who have prematurely gone through puberty.
Surgery in females is generally done after age 16 and in males after 17 as facial changes and growth are still going on before then. I would see other surgeons in your area and see if they would consider operating sooner.
