Can I get a rhinoplasty?
When compared to other cosmetic procedures, Rhinoplasty can be technically
demanding. Before you zoom off to the country of your choice, you need to be eligible. Although there are no particular age restrictions, experts recommend patients should be above 15 before undergoing any nose surgery.
As an adult, if you meet these requirements, you are suitable for Rhinoplasty
- Too small or too wide nostrils
- Asymmetrical noses
- Humps on the bridge or tip of the nose
- An extra-large nose that is uneven when compared to the rest of your face.
Top tip: Make sure you have realistic expectations before your surgery. Rhinoplasty is more suitable for people who are aiming for minor improvements rather than people that want major impractical changes.
Risk of Rhinoplasty
The risks of Rhinoplasty are usually minimal, and in the hands of a professional nose surgeon, the risks are even smaller.
Rhinoplasty is a generally safe procedure that should not cause scarring or any other complications. However, in some rare cases, excess bleeding, infection, and complications with anesthesia can occur. The good news is, these risks can easily be managed.
Top tip: To avoid unnecessary surgery complications, avoid smoking, drinking coffee, and medications containing aspirin or ibuprofen a month before you go on the table for your nose surgery.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that can change skin, bone, cartilage, or all three. So, if you’re on the hunt for a reliable and quality nose surgery at an affordable price, these countries are fantastic destinations to scout.
After your surgery, it takes about two weeks to recover fully – Although, most people feel normal a week after the surgery. I suggest you explore the marvellous cities you’re in. You’d be surprised at the fantastic delicacies and activities you’d find exciting.
