The right age for rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty needs to wait until a patient has reached a certain age and the nose is fully developed. Assuming the patient in question is in good health, this is about age 15 in the case of girls and 17 in the case of boys. So there’s likely to be a few years of waiting. In the meantime, the teen should have the chance to express his or her hopes and expectations precisely.
Recovery from rhinoplasty requires a certain amount of physical discipline. For the first few days, you should make sure your son or daughter drinks plenty of fluids, gets a lot of sleep, and keeps his or her head elevated during sleep. For the next few weeks, he or she should avoid anything that would raise the blood pressure in his or her head. He or she should not wear glasses or garments that need to be pulled over the head.
