Rhinoplasty is a consideration for adults of all ages. You may think that patients who get rhinoplasty are typically younger. While this is a portion of our patients, older adults in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, are rhinoplasty patients as well. Many older adults who choose rhinoplasty may be re-entering the dating scene, rejuvenating their appearance, or changing their facial appearance. Many older adults wish to look on the outside as young as they feel on the inside.
When considering if rhinoplasty is for you, you need to consider your health more than you consider your age. The key to successful surgery on older adults is a thorough screening prior to the surgery to ensure the risk of complications is low.
During an evaluation, prior to your surgery, you will also be evaluated concerning your lifestyle choices. Your lifestyle and habits can play and important role when considering your candidacy for plastic surgery. Common lifestyle choices that are evaluated include: smoking, drinking and diet. Each of these choices can adversely affect your surgery and post-surgery recovery.
