Rhinoplasty in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty in Mexico

Be one of the thousands of happy patients who have had their rhinoplasty in Mexico – and paid less than half the amount they would at home.

If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose but can’t afford $5,000 or more to have a nose job at home then traveling to Mexico may the answer. We’re not saying that cost should be your primary consideration – it shouldn’t be. Your nose, after all, is in the center of your face and you want to make sure you go to a surgeon you can trust who is not just a good surgeon, but one who has an artistic eye to be able to achieve the result you are looking for.

You need a surgeon you can trust, and Medical Departures can help you find one.

Why should I get rhinoplasty in Mexico?

Getting a nose job in Mexico is not as scary as it sounds – there are excellent surgeons and medical facilities that are just as good as anything you’ll find at home.

Mexico has its fair-share of internationally-accredited hospitals with the Joint Commission International, one of, if not THE, most prestigious of all the accreditation schemes. Coupled with ambulatory care facilities – which offer consultations and treatments using advanced medical technology delivered on an outpatient basis – and Mexico’s healthcare facilities are far from third-world.

Similarly, physicians in Mexico are just as likely to be as skilled and qualified as they are in the United States – and cross-border training means that Mexican doctors have often trained in the U.S and have memberships of American surgical Boards.

Mexico is a vast country, and whether you want to combine your surgery with a holiday at one of the popular beach resorts such as Cancun on the East Coast, or Puerto Vallarta or Cabo San Lucas on the West Coast; take in a city break in Mexico City or Monterrey or travel to one of the border towns you have plenty of choices.

We always recommend that you should do some research on your clinic – find out a little about them – there is plenty of information available on the internet. At Medical Departures we think it is crucial, which is why our doctors and clinics are all background-checked by us to establish qualifications, professional memberships and expertise. We also provide high resolution photos and ask patients to provide real reviews of their experiences – which in our opinion are good indicators of whether a particular clinic or doctor is trustworthy.

How long does a rhinoplasty procedure take – what is involved?

Rhinoplasty is unique to each different patient – the steps to correct a broken nose may be different to the steps needed to remove a bulbous tip from the end of a nose – and so there aren’t any clear-cut steps involved.

Incisions for the surgery may be done inside the nose, or through a small incision at the base of the nose. Surgery can take from 1 hour to 5 or 6 hours in complex cases if you require cartilage grafts or extensive reconstruction.

What is the recovery time for rhinoplasty – when can I return to work?

It is important to remember that recovery times will vary from patient to patient, but that you will have swelling and bruising for around two weeks, which is when most people return to work.

Surgical packing in the nose is removed between 4 and 7 days and splints or bandages between 7 – 10 days. You can usually take part in normal activities, and gentle exercise, after 3 weeks.

What is the cost comparison of rhinoplasty in Mexico compared to the US and Canada?
