Nose Job in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to Nose Job in Mexico

Last fact-checked: 14 February 2020

Bothered by the shape or size of your nose but can’t afford surgery? Getting a nose job in Mexico can save you over 60%, and the country is also the perfect place to relax and recuperate while you wait for the swelling and bruising to subside.

Discover how you can do it without putting your health at risk by booking your treatment through medical Departures. 

Is a Nose Job for Me? What Should I Consider?

There are many reasons why you may want to have nose surgery, which is also known as rhinoplasty. For instance, you may:

  • Have a misshapen nose after trauma (which may also cause breathing difficulties)

  • Want to make it smaller to compliment your other facial features

  • Seek a longer, thinner nose to replicate a more “western” look

  • Correct bumps or straighten the nose

As your nose is the most prominent feature on your face, feeling unhappy with it is going to have a detrimental effect on your self-esteem, especially if you have had those feelings for a long time.

While deciding on any surgery is a major decision, nose surgery should be given careful consideration as the results are not something that can be hidden away. A nose job is not just going to change your nose but it is also likely to alter your face. You must be prepared for the change in the way you look, which may take some getting used to, not just for you but to your family and friends, too.

Why Should I Consider a Nose Job in Mexico?

For many people in English-speaking countries, the cost of cosmetic surgery (which your nose job would probably be classed as if you don’t have any medical problem) is going to be high as it won’t be covered by health insurance or public healthcare. In Mexico, the costs are considerably lower, with our clients often saving thousands.

For Americans and Canadians in particular, Mexico is practically on their doorstep—either a short-haul flight away and for some, within driving distance. For some people who don’t want the hassle or expense of traveling across continents, this is a real plus point.

Nose surgery is usually carried out by a specialist surgeon, called an otolaryngologist. In Mexico, general surgeons who specialize in a subspecialty, such as otolaryngology, are required to undergo additional training, as well as recertification every five years. If you are considering a nose job in Mexico, if you make sure you find a specialist who has expertise in otolaryngology then you shouldn’t go too far wrong. Mexico has plenty of excellent surgeons, many of whom are also American trained and board registered, so you can be doubly sure of good standards.

Providing you do some research, and know what you are looking for, you can find great-quality facilities who offer reliable services with trustworthy medics. While no surgery can ever be guaranteed to be successful, you are giving yourself a good start if you can get the basics right.

Medical Departures helps you do exactly this. We carry out background checks on qualifications and professional memberships, as well as visiting clinics/hospitals. Our findings are published on our website, with real patient reviews, which are all freely available for you to look to help you re a decision.

What Does a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty) Procedure Entail?

No two nose jobs are the same. The surgery is tailored to each individual’s needs. The procedure may be carried out under general or local anesthetic; if you are a bit squeamish and don’t fancy hearing the sounds of cartilage and bone being operated on, then you may want to opt for a general.

Your surgeon will be able to give you a better account of what is going to happen during the procedure, should you wish to be filled in on all the details.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

Again, there is no set time; it really depends on what kind of surgery you are having. The average time for surgery is around two hours. It may only take an hour or much longer if your surgery is complicated requiring extensive reconstruction.

What About the Recovery After a Nose Job?

Immediately after surgery, your nose will be filled with gauze, and you will be bandaged. You may have a splint to keep the nose as straight as possible until your bones have set. You probably won’t feel too comfortable for a few days, especially once the swelling and bruising develop, but pain medication and cold presses will help with the symptoms.

The surgical dressings will be removed between four and seven days and splints and bandages between seven and ten days. Some people feel able to return to work after two weeks, but it may take a little longer before you feel up to your normal routine. You will have to take things gradually and slowly, and while light exercise is permitted after three weeks, you should avoid strenuous exercise for at least six weeks.

How Much Can I Save on the Price of a Nose Job in Mexico Compared with the United States or Canada?

Nose jobs in Mexico usually cost less than 50% of what surgeons charge in the United States, at around $3,000, rather than $8,000. [Please note: These are approximate prices based on global averages at the time of writing.]
