If you’re thinking about going abroad to have a nose job done cheaply, think about not doing that instead. People who’ve gone to Thailand for rhinoplasty and gotten bad results have been unable to successfully sue for damages. (If medical care is cheap in a particular country, sometimes it’s because the doctors know they won’t be needing malpractice insurance.) Revision rhinoplasty — a nose job to repair the effects of a previous nose job — is more complicated than regular rhinoplasty, just as expensive, and you have to wait at least a year after the original surgery to have it done. That’s a long time to go around in public with a nose that looks worse than it did before. Performed by an expert in an operating room that’s up to American medical standards, rhinoplasty is one of the safer surgeries. About ninety percent of those who get it are pleased with the results, and only about one in thirty need revision.
