When Does the Nose Stop Growing?

I am a male and currently almost 18 years old and I was wondering when the nose stops growing so I can consider rhinoplasty?

Nasal growth and age

The nose typically stops growing at the age of 15 in girls and 16 in boys although the skin can continue to change over the lifetime and if it thickens a lot it can weigh down the nose especially the tip region.
