I had a Nose job in Mexico City with Top Plastic Surgeons Mexico - Before & After pictures.
I got a nose job 8 months ago, and I wanted to share my short journey in Mexico because I myself found so much comfort and understanding reading others’ experiences before going through TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico than i feel my experience can also help someone to feel more confident before taking such a decision!
My journey was a long and thoughtful process. I am 26 years old, but I’ve wanted my nose surgery for over 10 years. Ever since I can remember, my nose had been my biggest insecurity, but my insecurity hit a peak in late March 2020, when I was scrolling through some holiday pictures and felt so disgusted at what I saw that I vowed never to allow side profile pictures to be taken again and although I feel that you should learn to love your body and learn to treat it well, my nose was never going to change and so I decided to look into a rhinoplasty surgery for real.
"Nose jobs are pricey in Los Angeles, with the average cost coming in at around $10,000. But in Mexico, the average price is closer to between $3,000 and $4,000".
So, with courage and some saved money, I started last year looking for a plastic surgeon and this was a really big process! Because of my limited budget, I was looking for private surgeons, cosmetic surgery companies and private hospitals in Mexico.
Nose jobs are pricey in Los Angeles, with the average cost coming in at around $10,000. But in Mexico, the average price is closer to between $3,000 and $4,000.
So I did some online researches - I hit a bit of a dead end with the research, as there was so much information out there - but I finally scheduled multiple consultations to compare pros and cons with 3 different places. One in Mexico City (top plastic Surgeons Mexico) one in Tijuana and the last one in Guadalajara (I don’t think it is necessary to give their names)...
After a few days, I made possibly the biggest decision that I’ve ever had to make I finally decided to go to Mexico City and I am proud of my decision!
A couple of days later and I was booked in at TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico with with one of their top expert plastic surgeons - Dr Balthazar Rendon.
"I remember my first consultation I was in the waiting room looking at all the patients, and I remember felt reassured and stress-free because all his patients looked fabulous".
Just few word about my journey: I booked everything through my patient coordinator David, who was so friendly and helpful throughout the process.
I was never made to feel like a nuisance for asking a million questions and everyone who I came across who worked for TopplasticsurgeonsMexico in Mexico was so friendly.
I consider my surgeon like an artist, with a unbelievably kind staff, so understanding and helpful.

but… to be honest, the day of surgery was the most surreal and most nerve wracking experience of my life… My face was going to change forever and I’d wake up with a new nose! I was So nervous but I finally did something that I’ve wanted to do for the last ten years.
The surgery took about two hours.
The recovery after surgery is uncomfortable but there is no really pain whatsoever.
The first night is pretty rubbish. You can’t breathe, you have a packing in your nose and a giant tampon which soak up the blood.
Many people talk about pain after surgery but honestly a period is more painful than having a rhinoplasty.
I don’t want to cram all this information about my surgery experience and recovery into one long, overwhelming post, I prefer to post my before and after pictures.
The procedure has a long recovery time, as it’s a very complex procedure, but obviously a very rewarding one because it can completely change your face or just give you the tweak you need to feel more confident in yourself.
Overall, I am glad I made the decision to perform the procedure in Mexico. My journey has been an emotional trip, but it was a good experience. I am very happy with my results, although I’m far from perfect but having surgery wasn’t about a quest for perfection. My doctor shaved my top hump, slimmed it out and refined the tip of my nose making my new nose far more in proportion with my face and now I feel my other facial features are able to shine rather than being overwhelmed by one rather large one.
I would 100% do it again!
