Question: Is it true that the nose continues to grow until old age? How will this affect the nose job?
Answer: It is true that the nose continues to change as we age. The skin and soft tissue change and gravity also plays a role in how facial features change. One of the things which may happen with time is that as we age the skin may thin and this may affect how the underlying tissues are projected through the nose. When performing the surgery, an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon takes potential changes which may occur in the future into account in developing and using techniques that will leave the nose not just aesthetically pleasing but also structurally very strong so that the important function of the nose, to breathe, will not be impaired.
