Question

Hello, I read the question from the 15 year old girl, I'm 16 and frequently get teased and sometimes bullied about my nose. I know that my nose will still change, but being embarrassed when meeting new people and in photo's is really difficult at my age, specially as I'm going into sixth form.

Do you know anywhere that would do the surgery for someone my age?

Answer

I am afraid I don't know specifically of which surgeons would carry out cosmetic rhinoplasty before the age of 18.

I suspect a starting point would be to look at Internet forums, or search for teenage rhinoplasty.

If you are getting bullied about the shape of the nose, which is a sad reflection of our society, I would be happy to see you in consultation together with one or both your parents, and discuss some options.
