I’m 27, Asian, and I’d like to get a nose job. I heard that the nose grows and changes as you get older. Is this true? What does this mean for the results of the nose job then?

The nose does change over time. For example, the nasal tip support mechanisms may weaken over time, thus giving the appearance of a longer nose with a droopy nasal tip. During rhinoplasty, we use techniques to maintain, and sometimes enhance, those tip support mechanisms.
