DR. SPENCER COCHRAN: Rhinoplasty is a common procedure that young adults and teenagers contemplate. And we see a large number of rhinoplasty patients who are in their teens at our practice. While there’s not any specific age cut off or requirement for rhinoplasty, it is important that patient’s be both physically and emotionally mature to undergo rhinoplasty. This is something that needs to be evaluated on a case by case basis. It’s also important that there be an open dialogue between the patients, the parents, and the doctor. This ensures that the motivations and expectations for surgery are all in agreement.
