Hello Dear thnak you so much for your question.

Age is not a limiting factor conducting surgery . If the patient has good health and normal preoperative studies are no age limits.

Hope to hear from you soon, best wishes!!

Rhinoplasty can be safely performed at your age, so long as you are healthy enough for surgery. I recommend you consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon in your area to discuss the details associated with surgery and to have computer imaging performed using photos of your nose to simulate the effects of surgery. Best of luck!
