How much would it cost to remove the hump on my nose? Would additional work be needed? Also, I am 19 and I want to know that my nose is fully done growing before I do surgery. At what age is recommended?
How Do You Know when Nose is Done Developing?
Doctor Answers 8
At age 19, your nose is fully developed.
At age 19 the nose is fully developed. It is usually acceptable to undergo rhinoplasty by age 16 in girls and age 17 in boys. The cost of a rhinoplasty is approximately $6,000.00, which includes the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesia doctor’s fee, and the operating room.
Nose stop growing
A nose has stopped growing usually by the age of about 13 in a girl and 15 in a boy so it is better to wait until then to have a nasal surgery. I have not seen a nose "grow" after I have perfoemed one on a teenage patient.

The nose continues to grow through puberty. For girls this is usually 15 -16 years of age; for boys it is 17-19 years. Therefore, it would be safe to have your hump removed whenever convenient for you. Cost will be $6000-8000.
Age for Rhinoplasty in Teenager
Research studies have shown that the nose continue to grow and change throughout life. The nose, as with everything else, never stops changing. The rate of growth, however, is greatest during puberty. Once the nasal growth rate slows down, plateaus and becomes stable, then one may consider proceeding with nasal surgery. Generally, this occurs at age 16 for girls and 17 for boys.
Nose is done developing
Nasal maturation ends between the ages of 14 to 20. Females sooner than males. Cost range from $4500 to $8500 depending on the area of the USA.

When is a nose done developing?
Girls' noses are usually done developing by 13-14 years old and boys' noses 17-20 years. The cost varies due to the complexity of the nose and the skill and experience of the surgeon. $5-8000 is a ball park estimate.
