Rhinoplasty in Iran

Generally, a nose surgery is carried out using two techniques: open technique, and close technique. The type of the surgery depends on whether you are having the surgery for the first time (primary Rhinoplasty) or it is your second or third time (revision or secondary Rhinoplasty).

Popular Rhinoplasty Procedures:


Primary Rhinoplasty

Primary Rhinoplasty refers to the fact that the patient has not undergone any nose surgery before, and it is his first experience. Primary Rhinoplasty can be performed both to correct the shape of the nose and treat breathing problems due to structural problems.

In primary nose reshaping surgery, excess bone and cartilage is removed from beneath the skin that covers the nose. Cartilage grafts may also be added to help remodel the nose. Primary Rhinoplasty may take one to two hours.


Secondary Rhinoplasty (Revision Rhinoplasty)

The main purpose of secondary or revision Rhinoplasty is to fix the results of previous unsuccessful surgery or surgeries. However, it is highly recommended that you should wait at least a year after the first surgery, so that all swelling subside. Secondary Rhinoplasty can also be done to repair functional issues, like breathing difficulties. Most probably, cartilage may be added or taken away during the surgery to recreate symmetry. The whole procedure may take up to four hours.

Rhinoplasty in Iran

Iran is named the nose job capital of the world. The number of nose surgeries per capita in Iran is seven times as many as in the United States. The interest in nose surgery among Iranian women and men have been on the rise since two decades ago. The reason is that many people in Iran, and other Middle Eastern countries, have less beautiful noses, compared to other features of their faces. Prominent and crooked noses are common among Iranian people, while other features such as eyes and lips are beautiful. Some believe that the dress code for women in Iran and the hijab, too, have contributed to this exceptionally high demand for rhinoplasty. As most body parts are dressed, the beauty can mainly be seen in the face, and the focus of the attention is on this part of the body.

As a result of this, Iranian plastic surgeons became very busy in this particular cosmetic practice. Thousands of nose surgeries are being performed by Iranian cosmetic surgeons and this means that they have gained considerable professional experience in this surgical procedure. Some of the Iranian rhinoplasty surgeons are so popular and prolific that they do several nose jobs a day.

The reputation of Iranian rhinoplasty surgeons is at a global level. Each year, a considerable number of foreign nose surgery candidates pour to Iran to have their noses done by Iranian doctors. Some renowned celebrities have come to Iran for nose jobs over the last years.

Not only in the capital Tehran, but in many other cities in the country, rhinoplasty is done. Hospitals and specialized clinics in cities like Shiraz, Mashhad, Tabriz, Isfahan, Kish Island, and other big cities offer quality nose surgeries to national and international patients.

Since the cost of living in Iran is very low, as well as the value of the national currency, medical and cosmetic services are offered at a low cost.

Nose surgery archived questions and answers

Q1: What is the ideal age for a rhinoplasty (nose surgery)?


Generally speaking, the ideal age for undergoing a rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is 17 for men and 15 for women. The bony and soft tissue structure of the face, when reaching this age, is fully matured so the later teens would be a great starting time to do such surgeries. On the other hand, nasal septum is developed fully during facial growth in this age which allows the proper growth of the midface and nasal structures.
The Rhinoplasty surgery is best performed once an individual has hit puberty and also should not be performed before a major growth spurt.

Q2: How long should I stay in Iran for a rhinoplasty?


After checking in the clinic and visiting the doctor, the next day you will get ready to undergo the surgery. six or seven days after the surgery, your plaster (nose splint) will be removed and after a short break you can return to your country with no worries.

Q3: Is exercising OK after a rhinoplasty?


After the rhinoplasty surgery, the most common problem you might experience is a slight nose bleeding and also some swelling. For reducing this problem you should avoid heavy exercises such as weight lifting, jogging, running , body building , diving, etc for at least a month to reduce the post-surgical problems.

Q4: Should I have an open or closed rhinoplasty? Which one is better?


Basically, both methods are used for both primary and secondary rhinoplasties but generally surgeons’ preference is to use the open approach in primary and revision rhinoplasty if tip of the nose needs reconstruction wholly . The open approach allows surgeons to visualize the tip (lower lateral) cartilages directly and in a undistorted way while working on it. But If the patient desires the removal of a hump or get another alteration on the upper part of the nose, then a closed rhinoplasty surgery is preferable.
To sum it up, you should let your surgeon decide what kind of surgery is the proper one for you. Each surgeon’s experience and medical background is different and therefore the method being used will be different.

Q5: Do I have to pay for a revision rhinoplasty if the primary one was a botched one?


Basically, less than 1 percent of our patients need the secondary rhinoplasty because of a medical malfunction (either doctor or clinic). This is because of the highly skilled and most experienced doctors in Iran. Still, in case of a need for a revision, the secondary (revision) rhinoplasty will be free of charge.

Q6: When to re-start skin care after rhinoplasty? Should patients typically wait longer so the cast comes off?


Generally, it is better to talk with your surgeon and discuss the issue with them about your current skin care. They will inform you what to do and what not to do. Just try to avoid strong exfoliants on your nose for 2-3 weeks and be careful with harsh rubbing of your nose .

Q7: How long after rhinoplasty should I wait to get a revision?


As The nasal tip resolves slowly, the average time to do a revision surgery will be 6 up to 8 months after the previous one (at least). this allows the swelling to go down and the tissues soften. As the secondary Rhinoplasty is more difficult, it requires an experienced plastic surgeon to fix it. So a highly skilled doctor is an important factor.
