Will the nose continue to grow even with rhinoplasty at a young age?

The nose has been shown to grow as people age.  Much of this growth is actually due to parts of the nose losing its resiliency and structure that it had at a younger age.  Cartilages lose their structure and relax and this can make the nose drop from gravity which ultimately lengthens the nose.  The ligaments that hold the nose together also loosen over time and this also allows the nose to descend vertically.  Also with age, the skin can thicken.  Sebeceous gland growth can happen to some degree in everyone but is most pronounced in people with rosacea who can have a rhinophymatous type of changes to the nose.  But when the time comes when your nose is larger, there are ways to make it smaller again through Rhinoplasty
