We hear the term anti-aging all the time. And while this term applies to several aspects of our body, we most often associate it with our skin: lines, wrinkles, crow’s-feet and the like, not our noses. But according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in addition to the other unwelcomed developments that come with aging, our noses and chins continue to grow unlike other body parts. So if you feel like your nose is getting bigger, it might be.
Just like breasts and earlobes, the pull of gravity causes noses to droop. Additionally, your nose may appear even droopier thanks to the thickening of skin. Fortunately for older patients suffering from a droopy nose, rhinoplasty can restore the nasal tip back to its youthful position. This is usually an easier procedure than a typical nose job that involves breaking nasal bones. Cartilage grafts may be used, which can speed up recovery time. Have any of you had rhinoplasty later in life, what was your experience?
