Why Should I Consider a Rhinoplasty in Tijuana?

Rhinoplasty surgery is performed by a plastic or cosmetic surgeon. It is often seen as a combination of art and science, requiring a surgeon to have an artistic eye as well as high-grade medical skills. As such, it's imperative that you choose a specialist with the right medical expertise. Fortunately, Tijuana has more than its fair share of excellent plastic surgeons making it a popular destination for cosmetic surgery, especially for North Americans.

Tijuana is convenient to reach, with an international airport located in Tijuana and another just over the US-Mexico border in San Diego. Many people also choose to travel by car from the southern states, either driving straight 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 airport, border crossing or your hotel.

It's this attention to detail coupled with superb customer service and low prices that entice patients to return to Tijuana 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. At the best clinics and hospitals, there is very little difference in medical training throughout the world–as successful new technologies and techniques are disseminated quickly around the globe. Cross-border training is now the norm, and it won’t be unusual to find your surgeon has also trained in the US or the EU and is a member of 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.

How Long Does a Rhinoplasty Procedure Take and How Long Will I Need to Stay in Tijuana?

Rhinoplasty is a very personalized procedure and is thus different for each patient. One individual may just want the tip of their nose adjusted, whereas another may need major reconstructive work to correct a condition. Your surgeon will help give you a clear idea of what’s needed in your case.

Surgery can take as little as an hour, or as long as five. You will need to stay in Tijuana for at least a couple of days, although do consult your chosen surgeon before booking your trip so you can get a better picture of the dates.

What Is the Recovery Time for Rhinoplasty – When Can I Return to Work?

The recovery period does vary from patient to patient, but it’s usually between one and two weeks. It is worth noting:

  • 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 three weeks.
  • It is important to remember that it could take up to a year for your nose to look and feel healed.
