You’ve probably heard the idea that a person’s nose continues to grow as they get older. However, most plastic surgeons regard this as an old wives’ tale and believe that the nose stops growing in the late teens.

The nose may look larger with age simply because of the effects of gravity on our faces. Tissue and ligaments can loosen and essentially slide down the framework of cartilage and bone.

For this reason, rhinoplasty isn’t just a procedure for younger patients. A nose job can offer dramatic results for older patients looking to rejuvenate their appearance by moving tissues back to their former position.
