To say the truth, a nose job is not recommended for everyone. According to the experts, a nose job or what is generally referred to as rhinoplasty should only be performed on people who have gone puberty. Not unless it is absolutely necessary, the majority of surgeons will not perform a nose job on those who are below the age of thirteen years.
In fact, some surgeons are known to refuse performing a nose job for those under the age of sixteen as these people are considered as still growing. The majority of teenagers go through a final spurt of growth when at the age sixteen years or so. During this growth spurt, the teenager nose shape and size is likely to change, thus the reason for the surgery refusal by the said surgeon.
Once fully grown, there is no age cut in nose job cosmetic surgery. To say the truth, rhinoplasty has successfully been performed on different patients beyond the retirement age. Prior to the doctor agreeing to perform the wished for nose job, the potential candidate must be physically and mentally healthy. Most cosmetic surgeons will postpone a surgery due to such eventualities as a patient coming down with a common cold. A good cosmetic surgeon will normally perform preoperative tests before carrying out the actual nose job procedure. These are done to check for any underlying health problems that may later complicate the procedure.
