Rhinoplasty - About the Nose

The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and a deformity can upset its harmony. Often the deformity is caused by a sports-related injury or accident. In other instances, people are born with a nose they perceive is too large for their face or with a hump on the top they consider unattractive. While some individuals may choose to live with a less than "perfect" nose, such as the multi-talented and stunningly beautiful Barbra Streisand, others find that a physical deformity can produce anxiety or adversely affect self image. For those people who seek to alter the shape of their nose, advances in cosmetic nasal surgery can offer a nose recontoured to a natural shape with minimal incisions and scarring, and with a relatively short recovery time.

Although there is no age limit for rhinoplasty, the surgery should be delayed until a time when the nose is near full development. This is generally about age 14 for females and age 15 for males.
