If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, you may be considering a nose job. You may be wondering when is the best time for you to get a nose job. Here are some factors to consider:
Development: A nose job cannot be performed before your nose has reached its mature size. Typically, this is at age 15 or 16 for girls, a little older for boys.
Family History: If other members of your family have had nose jobs, ask them about when they timed their surgeries. Also, look at pictures of your family members at different ages to see how the rest of their face changed and whether your nose will become more in balance with your face at a later age.
Affordability: At Gayoso Plastic Surgery, we do everything possible to control costs while providing quality plastic surgery, but the cost is a significant concern. You don’t have to be able to pay the entire cost up front, but you should have regular income that can allow you to make monthly payments using our plastic surgery financing.
Emotional Readiness: A nose job is a permanent procedure, so you want to make sure you’re truly ready to make this decision. Consider some recent decisions you have made and how long you have been happy with them. If you tend to make decisions and then regret them, perhaps you should wait until you have more confidence in your decisions before committing to a nose job.
During your consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso, he will talk about the right timing for your nose job and help you make the best decision for you. Please contact us today to schedule your consultation at our Tampa area office.
