Most 13-year-old girls and 15-year-old boys are old enough physically for a rhinoplasty–that is, the nose is adult size. However, a patient’s emotional maturity also plays a role in timing a rhinoplasty. Teens and young adults need to approach this procedure for what it is: a better nose.
For elderly patients, there is no predetermined cutoff age for having rhinoplasty. An elderly adult in good health may be perfectly fit to have the procedure. There have been cases of patients 70 - 80 years old having a Rhinoplasty performed with minimal to no complications.
The ideal age range for Rhinoplasty are patients aged 20 - 40 years old, during this time your facial skin is still mostly elastic and can accommodate surgical procedures without complications.
