If you have no medical issues, then your age is really not a deterrent. The procedure takes 2 hours and a splint is removed in 6 days.
Mary Beth in the office is the contact and she can make any arrangements that you would like.

It depends more on your physiologic age rather than your chronologic age. It also depends on what you are looking to address with your nose. There is a wide range of options with rhinoplasty.
