If you’ve made up your mind to go abroad for an affordable nose job procedure, Penang hits the spot. This Malaysian island offers the best of both worlds for medical tourists with first-rate healthcare facilities and it’s a great location for a holiday.

Of all our facial features, it is (perhaps) our nose that is the most noticeable. Unfortunately, we don’t get to choose what nature gives us at birth (also, accidents can destroy previous good looks) and if you are unhappy with how your nose looks it can have repercussions throughout your life in terms of self-esteem and confidence. Getting a nose job is probably something you have thought about for a long time, but if the cost has been a factor then it makes sense to go overseas where you can often save 50% on the cost back home.

When a nose job isn’t a nose job

The term nose job used to refer specifically to rhinoplasty, the surgical procedure that corrects, reconstructs or restores the function of the nose. From removing bumps, to straightening deviated septums to enlarging nostrils to correcting a sinus problem – all fall under the umbrella of nose job.

More recently, however, nose job also refers to non-surgical procedures, namely dermal fillers. Fillers are injected into the nose and the doctor massages the product to shape and contour. They can be used to:

  • Straighten a slightly crooked nose

  • Straighten a hooked nose

  • Smooth out a bump

  • Add height to the tip

  • Add definition

  • Make a small nose larger

The beauty of dermal fillers is that the procedure can be carried out in less than an hour and there are little in the way of side-effects. The downside is that the procedure isn’t permanent and is not suitable for everybody. Nose jobs are as individual as you are, and even surgical nose jobs vary enormously, depending on whether extensive remodelling involving the cartilage is involved.

Why Penang is a great option for your nose job

Whether you have a surgical or non-surgical procedure, there are good-quality facilities on the island. Malaysia’s private healthcare facilities are generally excellent.
