What if I Wasn't Physically Mature when I Had Rhinoplasty?

I am 16 1/2 years old and I had rhinoplasty three months ago. I am very worried now because i think that my nose wasn't fully developed. Will my nose continue to grow? or did by getting a rhinoplasty i have stop my nose growth forever? (i am a male). Can i get a non surgical nose job to augment the size of my nose bridge? I think my nose may have been over scooped.

Nasal growth and age

Typically, the male nose stops growing at 16 so it would not have likely made a difference even if you had your nose done at a later age. It does not typically grow any more. If you are not happy with your outcome and I would wait a good year then I would discuss your concerns with your surgeon as the nose takes about one year to heal.
