|A nose job (technically known as rhinoplasty), or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Nose correction can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.
Plastic surgeons usually recommend that patients wait until they are at least 14 or 15, and possibly older for boys, before undergoing nose correction. This is because the nose may not be fully developed at a younger age.
Sometimes certain breathing problems related to the internal nasal structures can be corrected at the same time as nose correction is performed. Plastic surgeon will be able to help you determine whether these structures should be modified along with correction your nose.
