Have you always felt insecure with how your nose looks and thought about getting a nose job? In Mexico City the prices are certainly more affordable than at home, and with Medical Departures you can find a surgeon with the right expertise and qualifications. This just might be the solution you are looking for if affordability has been the problem.
A Nose job is a cosmetic surgery that is done to change the shape of the nose. The procedure is invasive but depending on what kind of procedure you need surgeons may be able to make incisions on the inside of the nose so that there is no visible scarring.
The people living in US and Canada will find that going to Mexico City is a really good option for them. Regular, cheap flights make it very approachable and the cost of a nose job from Mexico City is one-third of what is charged in the US and Canada. A large proportion of doctors working there have been trained in the US so they are highly qualified and they speak the English Language so you can very easily communicate with them.
Mexico has long been a destination for Americans and Canadians, in particular, looking for affordable healthcare, and so medical tourism isn’t actually a recent phenomenon. Now, though, it is much more regulated and patients can find good quality facilities that conform to international health and safety regulations, rather than take a chance and hope things turn out for the best.
The internet is a great tool to gain information and it’s always doing your own research. Medical Departures has made it our primary mission to connect our patients to doctors that we feel comfortable with. We only list facilities that have been checked for their qualifications, professional memberships, safety standards, and criminal records. We also take into account reviews of real patients and we pay onsite visits to clinics to ensure that we’d be happy to go there ourselves for surgery.
Literally anyone can get a nose job and the procedure is common from teens to retirees. The procedure is fairly simple, with minimal risks involved. Add to this the fact that the recovery time is minimal and there is no overnight stay required at the hospital, this cosmetic procedure is the easiest to get done.
After the surgery, you will be required to wear a nasal splint for at least a week. There will be some bruising and swelling around the eyes but this usually goes away after three or four days. There will be a little swelling on the nose but it would be hardly noticeable. You need to avoid any kind of strenuous activities for two to three weeks in order to curb down the risk of damaging the sensitive tissues of your nose. Within two weeks, your nose will be back to normal and there will little to no signs visible that will show you recently had a nose job. But doctors do advise to take care for at least six months as the nose is still settling into its new shape.
There are a few risks involved with getting a nose job done. The most common are numbness on the nose area and nose bleeds. These do not last long and can be expected to go away within a couple of weeks. With certain type of reshaping surgery, there can be scarring at the bottom of the nose, but this is rare and a nose job rarely leaves a scar. If the procedure performed is extensive it can result in the rupturing of small blood vessels on the surface of the skin. This is can be easily rectified if it is the case, which is not that often. The most severe risk is the permanent damage of nerves on the nose area. This can result in a lack of feeling on the nose and is usually irreversible. Sometimes there can be a need for second or even a third procedure.
The procedure is basically the same, the only difference being in the type of reshaping done on the nose. That includes removing a hump on the nose, straightening the bridge, reshaping the nose's tip, increasing or decreasing the size of the nostrils, and making the nose bigger or smaller.
