Breathe easy with rhinoplasty in Mexicali. Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty can help to correct a deviated septum, which often makes it difficult to breathe.
This procedure is also a good choice for individuals who feel self-conscious about the size or shape of their nose and Mexicali offers an affordable option for international patients who find the prices a bit steep at home.
The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty is someone who has trouble breathing due to a deviated septum or someone who feels uncomfortable about the appearance of their nose. It is important to have realistic expectations regarding rhinoplasty and be in good overall health.
Experienced cosmetic surgeons can reshape your nose to reduce the appearance of humps, bumps, and depressions along the bridge of the nose and even alter the width of the nose. Rhinoplasty may also be used to correct problems with the tips of the nose, such as a nose tip that is upturned, hooked, or drooping.
When considering rhinoplasty, it's important to think about where you will have your procedure performed. An increasing number of people from the United States and Canada are now flocking south of the border for their nose jobs. Given the warm and inviting climate along with the world-class medical facilities and affordable pricing, it's easy to see why destinations throughout Mexico have become a preferred choice.
Medical Departures is available to assist you in finding a reputable clinic and surgeon to handle your rhinoplasty. While there are many excellent clinics in Mexico, it is still important to research your options ahead of time.
We complete exhaustive background checks on all clinics prior to including them on our list. That background check process involves confirming professional memberships through organizations, such as the International Association of Plastic Surgeons. We also confirm qualifications and perform legal and criminal checks. Since we feel it is important to get a sense for how things are done at the facility, we also gather real patient reviews and visit the clinic in person. We only include clinics and surgeons when we have completed our review process and feel comfortable with our findings.
The first step in a rhinoplasty procedure is to meet with your physician to determine your exact needs and goals. On the day of your procedure, you will be administered either intravenous sedatives or be placed under general anesthesia. Depending on your situation, your surgeon may perform your rhinoplasty using an open or closed technique. The incisions will be hidden inside your nose in a closed technique.
The amount of bone or cartilage to be removed during the procedure will depend on your desired outcome. In some cases, it may be necessary to add cartilage grafts. Projections inside the nose may also need to be straightened or removed to help correct a deviated septum and help you to breathe more easily. After your rhinoplasty procedure is complete, your surgeon will redrape the skin and nasal tissue and close the incisions. You should expect the procedure to last between one and two hours.
Most rhinoplasty procedures involve the insertion of a splint and/or packing inside the nose. A splint or bandages may also be used on the exterior of the nose. Patients should anticipate swelling during the first few weeks following rhinoplasty. Some swelling may continue for up to one year following the procedure. This is particularly common in the morning.
You should be able to be released on the day of your procedure. Expect to experience some discomfort on the first day. Oral pain medications should assist in controlling any discomfort you may feel. Most patients also experience some degree of congestion following rhinoplasty due to swelling. It is also common to experience numbness and bruising for up to a week after your procedure. Final results from rhinoplasty can usually be seen within 18 months after the surgery.
