Question

Can you attend a Consultation when you are 17, to eventually have the procedure when you are 18?

I understand there is an age limit to a rhinoplasty procedure, but is it legal to kick start the process, book and attend a consultation a few months before you turn 18?

Answer

I would be happy to see you in consultation at the age of 17, and start the planning process.

I would strongly advise that you come accompanied by one of your parents, and most certainly a second meeting would be also advisable prior to the operation. As you have already alluded to, I would be looking at carrying out the surgery after your 18th birthday.
