The Benefit of Septorhinoplasty Abroad 

Rhinoplasty and septoplasty are two of the top ten cosmetic procedures globally. Technological medical innovation influenced these treatments and made them more accessible. But then it doesn't reflect on the cost of treatment, which is why many patients travel abroad to have septorhinoplasty treatments.

The procedure costs significantly less in popular medical tourism countries. The reason is that living and labor costs aren't as expensive as in countries like the UK or USA.

The procedure is more affordable abroad

The cost of health care in the US, UK, and Australia has risen for the past few years. Septorhinoplasty costs 40% - 50% less abroad.

You have access to innovative treatment options 

Traveling abroad to treat deviated septum will open other possibilities or introduce a better, more effective treatment to solve breathing problems.

Highly skilled and experienced surgeons

The surgeons are highly experienced with years of practice. Their clinics are accredited by renowned institutions like Joint Commission International JCI or International Organization for Standardization ISO.

Treatment that's worth your money 

Finding a specialist abroad will be more cost-effective than visiting an amateur doctor in your local country.


Some patients want to keep their medical choices private, so seeking treatment abroad provides them with more confidentiality. Medical tourism offers a solution to this problem; you can publicly announce you're going on holiday while seeking the treatment you desire.

Tips for choosing the best Septorhinoplasty clinic abroad 

  • Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how many times they performed the treatment. 
  • Schedule an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 
  • Create a shortlist of possible clinics abroad:  research the clinic you plan to visit overseas. Most reputable clinics will have an official website, and you can examine the specialist's expertise, reviews, and credentials.  
  • Prepare a list of questions for your doctor: prepare a list of questions to ensure you receive quality treatment. Common questions to ask - do they provide a translator? Do they have patients' testimonials? Is the clinic registered with the national association?
  • Understand the procedure you need. Understand the procedure plan you need. Visit your local doctor and understand what treatment best suits your case.
  • Research the condition of the clinic before booking. It's recommended to visit the clinic before booking and finalizing the procedure. Talk to the staff and past patients if possible. 

Ideal Candidate for Septorhinoplasty Abroad  

You can have septorhinoplasty if you suffer from a deviated septum that causes breathing problems and experiences excessive snoring that disrupts your sleep. 

And if you're unhappy with the aesthetic look of your nose and suffer from septum deviation.

Septorhinoplasty Recovery Time

It is common to feel slight pain in your nose and have a nosebleed in the week following the surgery. You will need to spend one night in the hospital to monitor your condition. Complete recovery will take many months after the surgery.

It would be best to avoid demanding activities, smoking, and blowing your nose. Follow your doctor's septorhinoplasty recovery day-by-day instructions to avoid any complications.

Success Rate

Septorhinoplasty surgery has a success rate of 90%. 

How is The Procedure Performed? 

Once you are anesthetized, your surgeon will start the procedure by making small incisions on your septum, then will reposition the septum. Your surgeon might need to remove the septum to straighten it and place it back in some cases. After the septum correction, the surgeon will suture the incisions.

Depending on your case, your surgeon can perform a closed septorhinoplasty procedure by making an incision inside the nose. Or an open septorhinoplasty procedure by making an incision at the base of the nose.

Septorhinoplasty Complications 

  • General anesthetic risks
  • Changes in the shape of your nose
  • Bleeding
  • Septum damage (a septal perforation)
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Infections
  • Excessive scarring
  • Numbness of the tip of the nose or upper incisors
  • An accumulation of blood around the surgical site (septal hematoma)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long does it take to recover from Septorhinoplasty?

Most people experience recovery in 1 - 2 months after the septorhinoplasty surgery. But you will need to regularly check in with your doctor and expect to see full results in 1 year.

Is a Septorhinoplasty painful?

You will experience discomforts like a stuffy nose and puffy feeling, and slight pressure from the nose split. But your doctor will prescribe medication to manage after-surgery symptoms.

What's the difference between Septorhinoplasty and rhinoplasty (septorhinoplasty vs. rhinoplasty)? 

Septorhinoplasty treatment prioritizes treating breathing issues caused by a deviated septum, then enhancing the nose aesthetic look once breathing issues are treated. But rhinoplasty purely focuses on improving the nose's aesthetic appeal.

Is septorhinoplasty surgery abroad affordable?

In general, yes the procedure will be more affordable abroad and cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey. But there are some factors that affect the septorhinoplasty price like the location of the clinics, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.
