Rhinoplasty in the aging patient poses a unique set of challenges to the plastic surgeon. Aging patients usually have different expectations and motivations than their younger counterparts; therefore, open communication and frank discussions are paramount to define realistic goals. Anatomically, changes in skin quality, cartilage characteristics, underlying bony framework, and the nasal airways mandate special considerations to optimize the functional and aesthetic results. This review will present a practical approach to the management of the nose in the aging patient.
