Along the dorsum, you can see parallel vertical white lines that are the reflections of the
flashes. The linear reflections are prominent, and a bit crooked; they softened and
straightened after the hump was removed.
Look at the tip of her nose. In the after picture, there are two white
dots, also reflections from the flashes. The white dots are small and symmetric, closer
together than in the before picture, more distinct than in the before picture,
and positioned higher above the nostrils than in the before picture. Those
findings are our indications that the tip of the nose was narrowed and elevated
during the operation. Also, we get to see just a little bit more of her
nostrils after surgery, another indication that the tip of the nose was

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?

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.
