Rhinoplasty at age 16?
At age 16, your nose is still forming its shape and definition. It is wise that you would wait until your face has established its full growth potential before attempting any corrective corrective surgery.
When the time comes and should you remain unsatisfied with the way you look, then consulting with a well-experienced surgeon who offers to tell you what to do after a physical examination covering the nature and the status of the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative solution would be in your best interest. With that in mind, it is the safest and for your best interest to find a plastic surgeon with solid experience and certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who is ideally a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that you will trust and be comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
