Rhinoplasty Myths

5 Myths about rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can be a life-changing surgery but many people put it off due to these 5 common myths

  • Myth #1: Rhinoplasty is very expensive
    In the past, rhinoplasty was much more costly, now it ranges from €3,500 to €6,000
  • Myth #2: Rhinoplasty is very painful
    Most patients report feeling discomfort rather than pain. Painkillers are normally only needed for a few days
  • Myth #3: My breathing will be affected
    Your surgeon will correct both aesthetic and anatomical issues such as a deviated septum, actually improving breathing
  • Myth #4: You need to take a lot of downtime
    Recovery time depends on the type of rhinoplasty. If you need a nose cast, it will be removed after 10 days
  • Myth #5: It will be obvious to everyone I’ve had a nose job
    Rhinoplasty aims to tailor your nose to suit the proportions of your face so it looks as natural as possible
