The Ultimate Guide to Nose Job in Puerto Vallarta

Last fact-checked: 27 September 2020

Find and book your nose job at a trusted, quality clinic in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with Medical Departures.

A rhinoplasty, as it is medically called, is one of the most common types of plastic surgery that enhances the appearance of the nose or corrects medical issues. The shape of your nose impacts your whole face; for instance, your nose may have a bump, be asymmetrical, slightly hooked, too small or too big. 

With a successful nose job, you can address all of these issues and feel more confident about how you look. 

Why Consider Getting a Nose Job in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta is a top place for a holiday in its own right. The medical facilities we have partnered with in this Mexican resort city—and the rest of the country—are of an excellent standard, offering you affordable prices without compromising on quality. 

PV, as it is popularly called, has an attractive range of tourist attractions with a fascinating mix of old and new. It has a moderate climate with a lot of sunshine, warm waters, water sports and a huge variety of places to stay at different price points. Easy to reach from across the US and Canada, you can also take day trips or tours from the city to nearby destinations along Mexico's stunning Pacific coastline

Why Should I Book with Medical Departures?

Any surgery carries an element of risk and you have to be extra careful when undergoing surgery in a foreign place, away from home. When booking on your own, it's difficult to know whether the information you read on a clinic's website is true or whether there'll be any hidden costs. 

When you book through Medical Departures, however, you enjoy another layer of protection because we investigate the credentials and qualifications of the doctors, making onsite visits to all clinics or hospitals listed on our site in order to their hygiene procedures and protocols. If we're not happy with anything we see, we don’t list the clinic on our site.

How Long Does Rhinoplasty Surgery Take and What Is the Downtime?

Depending on the work required, your surgeon will decide whether the incisions are to be made on the inside or outside of the nose. Regardless of whether an open or closed technique is used, any scarring will be virtually invisible. You may need a splint after the surgery and lots of packing as well.

The surgery will generally take between one and three hours. Fo your recovery, it is worth noting that:

  • You may need to spend a night in hospital, although this is not always necessary.
  • Your activities will be restricted in the days following surgery, such as having to sleep on your back and avoiding any vigorous activity. 
  • As the area will be tender, you may find it difficult to eat normally so do stick to soft foods for a few days.
  • Ideally, you should take one or two weeks off from work.
  • If you need to wear prescription glasses, you may find it problematic as your nose will be swollen.
  • The nose can take as much as a year to assume its final shape and heal completely.

What Is the Cost of Nose Job Surgery in Puerto Vallarta?

Rhinoplasty surgery in Puerto Vallarta is considerably less expensive than in the US and Canada where you can expect to pay between US $5,000 and US $15,000. In Puerto Vallarta, you'll pay a fraction of the amount at just US $2,000 to US $3,500.
