Myth 1: My nose can look like any Hollywood star nose.
Fact: Every patient should have realistic expectations. Everybody face and visage is different that is why Angelina Jolie’s nose may not suit you, and it may not be achievable. Your new nose must fit your face, ethnicity, eyes location, etc. There is essential to be realistic, have pure expectations how do you like your nose to look like. Your doctor will provide you with advice what you may expect.
Myth 2: Rhinoplasty is only for wealthy people.

That is also 40% less than in Germany, where surgery price is 2800 GBP. Cheap nose surgery abroad may be your chance to save money!
Myth 3: Rhinoplasty will leave scars.
Fact: While closed rhinoplasty the incisions are typically made inside the nostrils. There is no external incisions, which may leave scars. While open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made across the columella, typically in the shape of an upside-down “V” or a stair step. The scar should not be visible.
Myth 4: Patients always need to be under general anesthesia during the nose surgery.
Fact: That is true. All full nose surgeries are performed under general anaesthetic. Minor surgeries like nose tip surgery, or septoplasty might be performed under local anaesthetic.
Myth 5: I will get horrible bruising after nose job
Fact: Some bruising around nose and eyes are natural, but it all depends on the individual case. Some people are more likely to have bruising and bruise more easily than others. The other factor is surgery type, in case you have to have nose broken buising are more likely to occur. While nose tip surgery they should not come.
Myth 6: Rhinoplasty is extremely painful
Fact: Most of patients after nose surgery experience discomfort rather than pain. You may feel strange as you will have plaster on your nose. You will breathe using mouth. There should be no pain as painkillers are provided for each patient. Nose may be itchy and swollen even one month after surgery. First month may not be comfortable, but surgery results are permanent.
