To the individual they often perceive their slightly imperfect nose as a deformity. In her mind this ugly nose is the sole reason she is unable to find a boyfriend. All of this is taken into account by the surgeon, his conscience, and understanding of psychology. In our case the surgeon is in Prague and we insist on a personal consultation in Prague well beforehand.

With very few exceptions, however, the applicant/s must wait until adulthood-age 18. Exceptions being: Rhinoplasty correction or a congenital breast defect which restrict the person from the wearing regular clothes.

Even more surprising and indeed shocking, we have girl of that age requesting intimate areas – the so-called Labiaplasty.

One procedure we do often entertain for children is correction of protruding ears. Indeed this can be performed from a very young age. The decision can come from the parent (concerned mainly with mocking from other kids) or the child themselves, either as a result of mocking or their own unhappiness with their shape.

However once again -ideally the child should wait until they reach age 18. Because until a child attains this age child their skull is still developing, growing, and changing. Often a person who possessed protruding ears discoverers at age 18-they have disappeared.

However from a technical point of view, operating protruding ears at an early age has certain advantages because children’s cartilages are more pliable and postoperatively there is much less pain.
