 The nasal bones it usually stopped growing by age 16 in girls at age 18 in boys. At that point is acceptable to undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty.Virtual cosmetic rhinoplasty software is available on our website if you want to give it a try

The nose finishes growing and shaping by 14 to 15 years of age females and 18 years of age males. Therefore your nose will probably not change in the future will remain crooked without surgery.

   Nasal bone growth is complete with body growth.  If you have not grown in a year you are probably finished growing.  Averages for females may be 16 to 18 and for males, 18 to 21.  The hump usually does not spontaneously resolve.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
