Rhinoplasty in South Korea

The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty in South Korea

Looking at ways you can afford to have nose surgery? Rhinoplasty in South Korea can cost at least 50% less than at home, so find out more with Medical Departures and our quality-checked surgeons.

Any kind of cosmetic surgery takes a good deal of consideration, especially if it involves your face. Many people considering rhinoplasty have usually thought long and hard about the operation, as they have usually been unhappy with the size and/or shape of their nose for some time. This could be because it is just what they have been born with, or it could be that trauma or accident has damaged the nose.

Why should I get a Rhinoplasty in South Korea?

South Korea is one of the world’s plastic surgery capitals – more people here have cosmetic surgery than anywhere else in the world. Some estimate that as much as 50% of certain sectors of the population have had aesthetic surgery. This should mean that the surgeons and clinics are experts in this type of surgery.

Facial surgery is certainly the most popular area on the body for surgery in South Korea, and is certainly where doing your homework beforehand should be a minimum objective. There is always more than one way to achieve a result, and in facial surgery, it is important to see a surgeon’s previous work. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and one person’s idea of what’s beautiful is not necessarily another. Make sure you and your surgeon are on the same wavelength.

This is part and parcel of doing your due diligence. You should also be sure to check out your surgeons qualifications and professional memberships; online reputation and clinic facilities. Medical Departures does all of this and publishes are findings on our site, as well as checking for legal or criminal records and cases. We also pay personal visits to the clinics, taking high definition photos and virtual video tours which, again you’ll find on our site.

No surgical procedure can ever be guaranteed 100% but don’t take pot-luck with the surgeon and clinic you choose – at least make sure you are happy with their credentials.

How long does a rhinoplasty procedure take, and how long will I need to stay in South Korea?

Rhinoplasty is a tailor-made procedure and the length of time varies considerably for each patient. It can take only an hour, or it may be up to 6. What needs to be taken into account is whether major reconstructive work is needed, including cartilage work, or whether it is simply a case of adjusting the tip of the nose. Your surgeon will discuss this with you in much more detail during your consultation.

After surgery, you will probably need to stick around for 6 or 7 days.

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

Again, this will vary, but it will probably be between 1 and 2 weeks before you can return to work. There will be bruising and swelling and you may want to wait until this has subsided, even if you feel alright. You will obviously have to make sure you don’t do anything that could knock your nose while it is healing. For this reason you will have to sleep on your back in an elevated position. You can start with gentle exercise again after 3 weeks, but anything strenuous or vigorous should be left for at least 6 weeks. It could be as long as a year before your nose has healed completely.
