A "Nose Job" in the Sun

Sometimes people choose to go abroad for their rhinoplasty. The appeal is a combination of a recovery spent in the sun and the cheaper cosmetic surgery prices in other countries. Approximately speaking, although these prices are flexible and you also need to take into consideration current exchange rates.

The benefit of going abroad for your rhinoplasty is that you get a built in holiday as well. Of course you need to also bear in mind that whilst the surgery is cheaper, flying out and staying abroad will incur costs in itself. You will want to try to remain abroad over the whole of your recovery period (a maximum of two weeks) so that you are near fully healed before having to travel back. Travelling through countries and airports can be an exhausting process which can be a very unpleasant experience straight after your operation. Remember to factor in the price of flights, food, travel and accommodation for the whole duration of your stay.

Considerations for Having a "Nose Job" Abroad

Whilst the idea of healing in the sun after the surgery is a very appealing one, there are some serious considerations to make before deciding to undergo nose reshaping surgery abroad. The first and most important thing to consider is the standard of surgery and aftercare. The UK has very high standards of cosmetic surgery and you need to make sure that the location you chose abroad can match the level of service. Always check to see if the clinic and surgeon are certified by legitimate and recognised organisations, boards similar to BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons) and BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons), as these are a good measure of the standards of service. You also need to consider your ability to communicate with the clinic after the surgery. Although post operation complications with rhinoplasty are very rare they can happen and it is in your best interest to be in the best place to deal with them if they occur. You need to be able to reach the clinic quickly under these circumstances and be in contact with your surgeon. Visits to and from the surgery, if you’ve returned to the UK, could quickly add up and eventually it might have been cheaper just to have undergone the surgery at home.

Deciding on a Clinic Abroad

When trying to find a cosmetic surgery clinic for your nose reshaping surgery abroad try to find somewhere which speaks English as this will make your consultations and general experience much easier. Make sure the place is clean, friendly and professional as these are all indicators of a good practice. If you can find a surgeon who is willing to make their consultations in the UK so that you only have to fly out to the country for the rhinoplasty procedure itself then this will save you a lot of money and is well worth considering. Once you’ve received the quote for your surgery, check to see what is included in the price paying close attention to the extent if any of aftercare offered. It’s no use having a cheap deal abroad if the clinic is finished with you as soon as the operation is over and offers no support during the recovery process.
