The earliest age for rhinoplasty operation should be 18 years of age, in which both the anatomical nasal development and mental development are completed, and healthy decisions can be made. Surgeries performed at earlier ages can be risky both in terms of health and psychological situations. The situation of older individuals varies according to age.
Nowadays, the age of rhinoplasty has fallen far below the age limit of 18 years. These surgeries, performed by unconscious families and doctors before the body growth has completed and organs have reached original dimensions, may disrupt the shape of the nasal bone and damage the cartilage.
