Question : I’m 16 and I would love to get a nose job. My mom and I met with two doctors in Boston. I didn’t really like either of them but I’m confused because one was ready to do the surgery and the other said I should wait a few more years. I really want the surgery, but I also really want it to go right. Is it better to wait?
Answer : You need to stop growing before you can have surgery. Otherwise, changes made in your nose surgery could distort the nose as you grow. A simple x-ray of your hands will show if you have stopped growing or not. Happy to see you in our suburban Boston office (Stoneham) or Worcester.
