How old do you have to be for Rhinoplasty
Dear John, The typical age that we start rhinoplasty is around the age of 16. This is dependent on wether your nose has fully matured. A consultation and examination will help determine your eligibility. Since you are a minor you would have to have your parent or legal guardian come with you to your consulting appointment to sign a consent and give authorization for the consultation. An examination would also be able to determine what needs to be done surgically to provide the proposed aesthetic results desired as well as addressing a surgical plan for your functional needs. These would be combined in one procedure. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
