Nose Job in Thailand

The Ultimate Guide to Nose Job in Thailand

Last fact-checked: 23 August 2020

Searching for a nose job in Thailand? Let Medical Departures help you find a quality-checked rhinoplasty surgeon in the Land of Smiles—and book with us to get the best prices online.

Nose surgery, like many other cosmetic procedures, can be prohibitively expensive for patients in the Western world. As a result, more and more people are heading abroad, often flying to exotic destinations like Thailand where they can enjoy a well-earned holiday and still save thousands compared to those prices at home.

What Should I Consider Before Embarking on a Nose Job in Thailand?

If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose–and have been for a while–then undergoing surgery in Thailand is a more affordable way of achieving your desired look.

There are a number of items you should carefully consider before embarking on medical travel. This is especially true for any facial surgery, and even more so if you are considering a nose job.

Before surgery, take into consideration the following:

  • You should discuss the procedure with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what's best for you and your nose. 
  • Take a look at before and after photos so you have realistic expectations in terms of the results.
  • Even though the procedure is fairly quick and straightforward, you will need to take at least two weeks off work.
  • Make sure you are in good general health and a suitable candidate for the procedure; this is something that your local specialist can confirm if in doubt. 
  • Realize that your nose will be swollen following surgery, and, importantly, you may not see the final result for up to a year. 

Why Go to Thailand for Surgery?

Thailand has been dubbed the world’s number one medical tourist destination for the past two decades—and for good reason...

World-class facilities:
Modern hospitals and clinics equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and amenities, with patient services more akin to high-quality hotels. Thailand has a good number of JCI-accredited hospitals - the 'gold standard' in terms of excellent standards of patient care and safety.

Highly-trained doctors:
Training differs slightly throughout the world from country to country, even comparing Australia to the UK and to the US. However, these days, almost all doctor training is standardized, and you are assured that medical training in Thailand is just as rigorous and demanding as elsewhere. Doctors are licensed to practice and specialists must undertake additional training and qualifications and renew their licenses every five years.

It’s a great place for a holiday:
From bustling Bangkok to the tranquility of Chiang Mai and stunning southern beaches in Phuket–you will discover an array of locations for a pre-procedure holiday or post-surgery recuperation. Get some Thai travel inspiration here

The price is right:
Most people save between 50% and 70% on the cost of their surgery in Thailand, amounting to a difference of thousands of dollars compared to what they'd pay back home. 

What Does the Procedure Entail?

Nose jobs, also known as rhinoplasty surgery, are unique to each patient and tailored to your specific requirements.

Depending on your situation, your surgeon may perform your rhinoplasty using an open or closed technique. The incisions will be hidden inside your nose in a closed technique.

The amount of cartilage or bone to be removed during the procedure depends on the aesthetic result you want to achieve. In some cases, it may be necessary to add cartilage grafts. Projections inside the nose may also need to be straightened or removed to correct a deviated septum or allow you to breathe more easily.

Upon completion, the surgeon will redrape the skin and nasal tissue before stitching the incisions back up.

How Long Does a Nose Job Take?

On average, a nose job procedure takes approximately two hours. Some may be briefer, while extensive reconstruction may take up to five hours.

What Does the Recovery From a Nose Job Entail?

After the surgery, your nose will be bandaged and packed with gauze. You may also have some splints to help keep the nose straight. You are likely to feel out-of-sorts for a good few days following surgery and your nose, and surrounding area will feel bruised and sore. Cold presses and pain medication will help ease the symptoms and swelling.

In the days, weeks and months following surgery, do bear in mind that:

  • You will be wise to take your recovery one day at a time, doing a little more each day as you begin to feel better.
  • Your dressings will be removed after four to seven days, but bandages may be kept in place for up to 10 days.
  • Keeping your head elevated, even while you sleep, will help with the swelling for the first few days.
  • You should be engaging in your normal everyday activities after three weeks, and some people return to work after two weeks.
  • Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for six weeks.

How Much Can I Save on My Nose Job in Thailand Compared with Prices in Australia or New Zealand?

Nose jobs in Thailand are typically priced around the AUD $3,300 mark. This is around 50% less than what you can expect to pay in countries like Australia, New Zealand and the UK. [Note: These are estimated prices at the time of writing. You can check the clinics pages on our site to obtain the latest, most accurate pricing.]
