This nose was shortened, and it had a small hump reduced.  There are many factors that must be considered in deciding how short to make a nose.  The rhinoplasty surgery tutorials contain an entire chapter on how a nose is made shorter during surgery, as well as a discussion of how to decide how short the nose should be (the surgery tutorials contain explicit photographs taken during surgery).

Questioner: Why do I have to wait until I'm 18 years of age to have my nose fixed?
When I was about 10 or 12 I broke my nose in a car crash. I am 16 now and my nose is bent and my left nostril is blocked because of my nose bending towards the right because it's broken. I really want a doctor to just break it back or set it straight but when I went to hospital when I was 15, the doctors said I will have to wait until I am 18 to get it fixed. They said that my face is still developing so that's why they wont do it. Would it be possible if I could get it fixed at this age?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Hmm. I think you're probably ready.
In my practice, most women aged 15 or older are ready for a rhinoplasty. We like to see that a woman is having regular periods and is about done getting taller. Then it's okay.
