Rhinoplasty in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty in Puerto Vallarta

Last fact-checked: 16 March 2020

Looking at undergoing rhinoplasty in Puerto Vallarta? Search, find and book your treatment with a Medical Departures quality-checked surgeon.

Is a Nose Job for Me?

As the nose is the most prominent feature on your face, a simple change in shape can alter the look of the entire face and give you a confidence boost as well. A rhinoplasty or nose reshaping is a very popular procedure globally and millions of people get this surgery done.

Some of the variations of rhinoplasty used for different reasons are:

  • Hump reduction: where a prominent bump in the nose needs cartilage or bone reshaping.
  • Augmentation or reduction: a flat nose can be augmented with the use of implants. Similarly, a large nose can be reshaped and reduced.
  • Asian rhinoplasty: those from East and Southeast Asia may have flat noses that they want reshaped to look more aquiline. This surgery reshapes the tip and bridge of the nose.
  • African American rhinoplasty: some African Americans perceive their nose to be too big or not shaped in proportion to their face; this rhinoplasty is designed to address such problems.
  • Septoplasty: a deviated septum can cause sleeping and snoring problems and a septoplasty can cure this. A deviated septum rhinoplasty can be performed alone or combined with other rhinoplasty procedures.

A rhinoplasty procedure may be considered major or minor surgery, depending on the way your nose looks and your desired results.

Why Consider Rhinoplasty in Puerto Vallarta?

Nose jobs in Puerto Vallarta have become popular with American and other international patients for a number of reasons; the main one, not surprisingly, is the cost – with prices here starting at just $2,000.

PV is also a great place for a vacation so you can combine surgery with a well-earned break in the sun. Make the most of your time by visiting the numerous beaches, waterfronts, gardens, landmarks and monuments. You can also explore museums or take in the local culture, buy local paintings, jewelry or clothes or even get a pair of custom made shoes. You have a vast choice of cuisines and eating places ranging from fine dining restaurants to casual cafes to hawker stalls at different price points.

Additionally, it is easily accessible from most regions in the U.S. and Canada via regular flights.

Why Can’t I Book on My Own?

Rhinoplasty is meant to enhance your appearance; as such, you should do everything you can to minimize the risk and maximize the quality (and your own satisfaction) of the results. If you book on your own, you run the risk of having a botched surgery leading to expensive revision surgery at a later stage. If you check out rhinoplasty forums, you will come across many such instances.

When using Medical Departures to find your surgeon, you won’t be compromising on the quality of medical care in Puerto Vallarta as all of our partners here facilities adhere to international standards and decades of experience.

We carry out thorough investigations into every clinic and hospital listing on our site. We make sure that the place is up to standard, that the staff is trained and skilled and that it has a good ambience. More importantly we check out the accreditations and qualifications of the doctors, listing memberships such as the Rhinoplasty Society on our site, so that you are not shortchanged in any way.

Get started now by checking out the excellent Dr. Guillermo Ramos Gallardo - Puerto Vallarta, a reputable clinic in Puerto Vallarta that offers nose jobs to international patients.

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

Rhinoplasty surgery is individually tailored and can take between one-and-a-half to three hours, depending on the work involved. If you require a graft transplant for any kind of nose augmentation procedure then you will need to stay at least one night in the hospital, otherwise you can go back to your place of stay after a few hours.

Your nose will be tightly packed after surgery and you will need to take antibiotics and painkillers. You will have to take care to sleep elevated, not move your face much and take soft foods for a few days. You will have some bruising and swelling and this will take several days to subside. You can expect to be off work for a week to ten days. Full recovery will take around six weeks, but the final result can take up to a year to show.

How Much Can I Save on Rhinoplasty in PV Compared to the US?

In Puerto Vallarta, you can expect to pay between $2,000 to $3,500 for rhinoplasty.

The same procedure in the U.S. and Canada can cost between US$ 5,000 and US$ 15,000, which means you can save well over 50% by having the procedure carried out in PV. [Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
