Rhinoplasty (nose job)
There is no age limit for Rhinoplasty, however the preferred age is mid-teens when the nose is near full development.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Reshaping or improving the appearance of the nose can be done in a number of ways; by reducing the size, by straightening, raising or lowering, by removing bumps, curves or ridges and by contouring the shape of the bridge of the nose in alignment with the tip.
