Find out how you can pay 60% less for nose surgery if you travel to Tijuana for rhinoplasty. Prices at home may be off-putting, but with Medical Departures you can find and book a quality-checked surgeon online, and get the look you want at an affordable price.
Any kind of surgery takes careful consideration, but especially face surgery. If the shape or size of your nose is something that has been bothering you for a while, and you’ve decided that surgery is the best option for you, then you will want to ensure that you find a surgeon and clinic with credentials you can trust.
Medical Departures listings are all quality-checked. We take the time to look for any legal or criminal proceedings, verify qualifications, confirm professional memberships and collate real patient reviews. We publish the findings on our website with high-definition clinic photos, allowing you to search and find a reliable surgeon, with the minimum of fuss.
Rhinoplasty surgery is usually performed by plastic/cosmetic/aesthetic surgeons. It is often seen as a combination of art and science, requiring a surgeon to have an artistic eye, as well as medical skill. This is particularly so for any kind of facial surgery, and so it is important you choose someone with the right medical expertise. Fortunately, Tijuana has more than its fair share of excellent plastic surgeons, and is, in fact, a popular destination for cosmetic surgery, especially for North Americans, for this very reason.
Tijuana is convenient – two international airports located in Tijuana, and just over the US-Mexico border in San Diego make it accessible, and many people also choose to drive from the southern States, either driving right into Mexico, or parking up on the US side and traveling in by shuttle. Many of our clinics also offer pick-up services from the airports, border crossing or your hotel.
It is partly this attention to detail, and customer service commitment, which entices patients back time and time again. Of course, this is not the whole story. Expertise is a major consideration, and if you choose wisely, there isn’t any reason why your care shouldn’t be of the same quality that you would expect to receive at home. There is very little difference in medical training throughout the world now – and successful new technologies and techniques are disseminated very quickly around the globe. Cross-border training is now the norm, and it won’t be unusual to find your surgeon has also trained and is a member of the American Boards, as well as international professional organizations such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Another significant factor for Tijuana’s popularity is the cost – savings of around 60% are not unusual for rhinoplasty in Tijuana.
The average cost of Rhinoplasty in Tijuana is $3,000 (CAD $3,900; GBP £2,000; €2,600; AUD $4,100), compared to around $8,000 in the United States (CAD $10,300; GBP £5,200; €7,000; AUD $11,000).
This is rather like asking ‘how long is a piece of string?’ Rhinoplasty is a very personalized procedure and is different for each patient. One person may just want the tip of their nose adjusted, whereas another may need major reconstructive work to correct their problem. Your surgeon will give you more of a clear idea of what’s needed in your case.
Surgery can take as little as an hour, or as long as 6, and you will need to stay in Tijuana for 5-7 days.
The recovery period does very from patient to patient, but it’s usually between 1 and 2 weeks. You should keep your head elevated, especially during sleeping during this time. Your nose will feel sore, bruised and swollen, but these symptoms will slowly improve during the recovery period. Most people return to work once the swelling has subsided and gentle exercise can begin after 3 weeks. It is important to remember that it could take up to a year for your nose to look and feel healed.
