Rhinoplasty in Phuket Province

The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty in Phuket Province

Last fact-checked: 24 November 2020

Rhinoplasty in Phuket is recommended if you’re looking to change the shape of your nose (either for medical or aesthetic reasons) but don’t want to pay through the nose back home.

Plus, an obvious perk of having surgery here is that you’ll get to enjoy a fabulous holiday pre-treatment or take it easy while you recover after surgery

Find out how to book with a background-checked surgeon through Medical Departures.

Is Rhinoplasty for Me?

The nose is one of the most important features of our face; if it’s not serving its purpose correctly due to natural structure or a deformity caused by an accident, you may want to make changes. Likewise, having a nose that you perceive to be too long, short, broad or thin can affect your self-esteem throughout life.

Modern methods of surgery have made this treatment (aka, a “nose job”) swift and relatively painless–and rhinoplasty is now the second most popular cosmetic surgery in the world.

Why Consider Rhinoplasty in Phuket?

The cost of cosmetic surgery in countries like Australia, the US, the UK and other parts of Asia has risen dramatically over the last few years, and this is the main (but not necessarily the most important) reason why prospective patients look to Thailand, including Phuket, for procedures such as this.

Apart from offering a popular destination that welcomes millions of tourists all year round, Phuket is also emerging as one of Southeast Asia’s go-to venues for medical treatments. The Thai government is interested in promoting medical tourism and they are investing resources to ensure that medical treatments are provided in accordance with international standards.

Thailand is extremely tourist-friendly thanks to its excellent infrastructure, handy visa-on-arrival system and an abundance of affordable accommodations. In short, the entire process of undergoing rhinoplasty in Phuket is smooth and efficient with Medical Departures.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

If Phuket’s medical facilities are so good, then why wouldn’t you just go ahead and book directly with the clinic? The reason here is simple: not all facilities in Phuket are up to standard, and many tend to put more money into marketing themselves to the public than they do into employing top surgeons or acquiring the latest equipment.

To help mitigate this element of doubt, we partner with some of the best medical clinics in the world, verifying accreditations, looking into their on and offline reputation, collating and publishing authenticated patient reviews and personally visiting clinics and medical centers.

It is worthwhile remembering that in many countries, there is no requirement for doctors to undertake cosmetic surgery training; this is why we always check to see if our partner surgeons are members of professional organizations, such a Thailand's Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons or the Rhinoplasty Society.

Am I Suitable for Rhinoplasty?

For a nose job, patients’ health conditions are an important consideration. You can get a quick consultation by a local GP as to your suitability, and your surgeon in Thailand will examine you thoroughly before surgery can start and also look at your ability to make a quick recovery.

Patients with major ailments are not encouraged to go through surgery. If you are a smoker, you will need to quit smoking for a number of weeks beforehand. This precaution is required to safeguard and support post-surgical healing, as smoking reduces blood flow.

How Does Rhinoplasty Work?

After an anesthetic has been administered and takes effect, incisions are made inside the nose. The skin is cut from inside to keep the marks of surgery invisible. The bone and cartilage are separated from the skin and redesigned according to the requirement. The skin is then fixed on the new setting and the surgical incisions are closed.

A splint is normally placed in the nose to support the new structure; although it’s only used for a few days, this can help a lot in achieving the desired result.

Other varieties and nose job techniques may be performed. Read more in detail about what rhinoplasty procedures entail here.

How Long Does the Rhinoplasty Procedure Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

The surgery is usually concluded within three hours. Although your doctor may ask you to stay in the hospital for one night to keep you under observation, this is not always necessary. For two days after your surgery, it is advised to keep your face as still as much as you can. You’ll be asked to eat soft food, as less movement helps in faster healing. Your stitches will be removed after a week and you’ll gradually return to your normal routine over the next month or so.

How Much Can I Save on Rhinoplasty in Phuket Compared to Australia?

Depending on the requirements a rhinoplasty surgery can roughly cost between $8000 and $15000 (AUD) in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the US.

The cost of this treatment in Phuket is generally around 60% less, although some patients find that they can save even more than this.
