My 17 year old daughter hates her nose and has been begging me for a nose job. Is she too young to undergo this type of procedure?
Most rhinoplasty surgeons prefer to wait until an individual has completed his or her growth spurt. This means age 15 or 16 for girls, and a little later for boys. Of course, this is a generalization: it is very important to consider the individual’s emotional and social maturity level and to make sure that he/she really wants a rhinoplasty.
