Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the bridge and nostrils of the nose. Both women and men undergo rhinoplasty surgery to enhance the balance of proportions in their facial features. Though this is one of the most common types of plastic surgery, it is still one of the most expensive in the US and UK. Fortunately, however, people who are unhappy with the shapes of their noses can find affordable rhinoplasty abroad.
In South America, Brazilian and Bolivian plastic surgery clinics offer the lowest rates for rhinoplasty and nose reconstruction. The average cost of a corrective nose procedure is about £760 or $1300 in Bolivia, and about £830 or $1400 in Brazil. This amounts to a 77% savings off the price of rhinoplasty in the UK, and an 87% savings off the price in the US. The cost of having rhinoplasty abroad in Brazil and Bolivia includes hospital stay, usually one or two nights. Both Bolivia and Brazil are developed countries where surgeons adhere to strict regulations as far as training and safety are concerned. Many surgeons have degrees from top medical schools in the US and the UK.
Not only do foreign patients receive expert medical care from a highly trained doctor, but they also receive excellent pre-op and post-op care from the support staff. Hospitality is an important part of Brazilian and Bolivian culture, and medical centers are no exception. Most of the nurses and all of the doctors speak English, so patients can communicate their needs clearly. The excellent reputation of rhinoplasty surgeons in Brazil and Bolivia is why so many patients from the US and UK elect to have surgery here.
