Question: How common is it for people to travel to different states or even different countries for rhinoplasty and what special considerations are there with travel before and after surgery?
Answer: It is common for patients to travel to different states in the United States or to different provinces in Canada for rhinoplasty, or they may even come from the United States to Canada for rhinoplasty surgery. They have special doctors with special skills that will help them achieve their aesthetic goals. It is important to remember, however, that the expenses will be higher with this type of procedure. If you’re going from one country to another, the travel cost will be increased. You may also need to stay for some time in the area where the surgery is performed to make sure the healing is good before you go back to your home country and you may need to come back after surgery. However, patients who have done this really stated it is worth it and they are usually very happy with their procedure, making the extra effort and time well worth it.
