At Renew Skin & Health Clinic you can benefit from the very last updated medical technologies and the work of highly trained plastic surgeons. According to our specialists, rhinoplasty is best performed when a person reaches full and stable growth. Therefore, the limited age for girls is 15 or 16 years and for boys somewhere between 16 or 17 years, when the nose structure is fully developed. If your son is 17 years old, its recommended to appeal to Renew Skin & Health Clinics medical specialists and get a consultation, in order to figure out if your boy should wait for the surgical intervention in nose reshaping for treating the nasal septum deviation or if the procedure can be performed at this age. Keep in mind that the full physical growth is not the only requirement for having a rhinoplasty treatment done. Your son should also be emotionally mature, in order to take care of the nose after surgery and also, to be capable of adapting to the aesthetical changes he will go through. Its important for him to be fully grown from a physical point of view, because if the surgical intervention is performed before the full growth, there might appear some future changes or even complications to the nose structure.
