Will my kids inherit my old nose or my new
Okay, if you're
an expert in Mendelian genetic inheritance, don't laugh. The answer
to this question isn't obvious to everyone.
you inherited a big nose from your parents, that big nose is in your
genes, your DNA, and we don't change that with a rhinoplasty. Your
kids will get the same genes from you whether or not you have your nose
just because you have a big nose doesn't mean that your kids will.
There are lots of families where one child gets dad's large nose, and
another doesn't. Children don't always inherit their parents' nasal
size and shape.
