Rhinoplasty at 50

Rhinoplasty at 50 in older age

Rhinoplasty is a rewarding procedure at any age. It is a personal choice in terms of the right time for rhinoplasty in one’s life. In reality a lot of people go through life thinking about having a rhinoplasty and never get around to it.

Below you will see a testimonial from a patient in her 50s who finally had a rhinoplasty after many years of contemplation and was happy that she did it. (Tanveer Janjua, MD, Bedminster Facial Plastic Surgeon)

50 is a good age

I don’t think it is a matter of age, since I have had patients as young as 14 and as old as 70+ request and go through with Rhinoplasty. The most important factor is whether or not the result you desire is something that can be achieved by the surgeon you choose.

Often, I use digital morphing so patients can see a very close approximation of their postoperative result. This may help you decide on whether or not you would like to proceed with having the surgery performed. (Michael Bublik, MD, Glendale Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Nose job at age 50

At 5 years of age, it is acceptable to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure. The profile view can be adjusted by removing a dorsal hump and balancing the tip with the new bridge line. Once the hump has been removed, osteotomies of the nasal bones are then required to narrow the nose. (William Portuese, MD, Seattle Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Is it pointless to get a rhinoplasty at age 50?

Rhinoplasty at 50 before and after dorsal humps

If your nose bothers you at 50 years old then it is definitely not pointless to have a rhinoplasty.

We see patients as young at 16 and as old as the 60s and 70s for rhinoplasty.

The main question is not your age but how much the appearance of your nose troubles you.

If you shy away from mirrors and photos because of the appearance of your nose then you should investigate further and see if rhinoplasty can realistically achieve your goals.

I hope this information is helpful for you. (Stephen Weber, MD, FACS, Denver Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Age for Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty at 50 years old

If you are in good mental and physical health, demonstarte realistic expectations and seek advice from a board certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon with rhinoplastiy experience there should be no reason for your age to stop you from having surgery.

Many patients in their 50s and 60s have had nasal surgery. Some patients simply do not like their aging nose.

Try the Rhinoplasty Society as a good starting point for some one near you. (Stephen E. Metzinger, MD, Metairie Plastic Surgeon)

Rhinoplasty at fifty

I have patients older than you that had decided to get a rhinoplasty. It is a matter of comfort and desire to move forward. (Steven Wallach, MD, Manhattan Plastic Surgeon)

Age for a rhinoplasty

As long as you have realistic expectations and seek advice from a board certified plastic surgeon with rhinoplastic experience there should be no reason for your age to stop you from getting surgery.

Many patients in their 50s and 60s have some nasal surgery with other facial work. (William B. Rosenblatt, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)

It’s never too late to get a nosejob

I have performed rhinoplasties on patients into their 70’s. These patients had nasal trauma but elected to get “more” done than simply straightening their crooked noses and septums. If it will make you feel better about your face, by all means look into rhinoplasty. The shape and position of your forehead can be evaluated at the time of your rhinoplasty consultations. (Steven J. Pearlman, MD, New York Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Rhinoplasty Candidate

First of all, being 50 years of age will not preclude you from undergoing rhinoplasty, as many patients either muster up the courage or the financial means during these years. The description you have mentioned leaves several questions, most of which can only be answered by looking at appropriate frontal and profile views (by photos or examination).

Often, the point between the eyes that rhinoplasty surgeons term the “radix” can often times be too depressed, making the brow appear very prominent. There is no doubt that the appropriate rhinoplasty for your individual nose will improve its appearance. I recommend seeking out a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who will properly examine you, provide you with a “simulation” of what your nose would look like after surgery, and tailor a surgical plan to meet your needs. (John Layke, DO, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)

I would say there’s no age limit to getting rhinoplasty and feeling better about yourself (as long as you are healthy enough for the surgery).

In terms of specifics I would suggest posting pictures from different angles, to help give you an idea of what can be done. (Kim Patrick Murray, MD, Miami Facial Plastic Surgeon)
