THE CONSUMER; How Young Is Too Young to Have a Nose Job and Breast Implants?

Surgeons used to wait until patients reached age 17 or 18 before reshaping a nose for fear that if they did it any younger, the child's nose would keep growing and end up in an odd shape. But they have found that nose growth ends earlier, and now do nose jobs, known as rhinoplasty, on girls at age 13 and boys at 14. A child would be unlikely to want surgery much earlier than that, Dr. Fodor said, because nose abnormalities do not show up until age 10 or 11.
