Envious of Korean pop stars and aspiring to look like one? Well, you’re not alone. Nowadays, nose surgery in Singapore is rather common, and cosmetic advancements have greatly improved the safety and effectiveness of a nose job. Still, any procedure that requires you to go under the knife takes careful consideration, so these are some serious pointers to note before opting for one locally.

Which surgeon is performing my nose job?
Yes, Singapore is a highly regulated place, especially in the surgical field. This means we’ve come to expect reliability, safety and utmost professionalism in any doctor we visit here. While that holds true, you should still choose your cosmetic surgeon carefully.

Make sure you check up on a clinic’s online reviews and most importantly, their experience in A NOSE JOB. Just because somebody’s an expert in cutting double eyelids does not automatically qualify him as an elite nose surgeon. Doctor Samuel Ho from Allure Surgery has a great reputation for nose jobs in Singapore but you might need to book an appointment in advance.

How long of a work leave can you take?
A very understated consideration. While a nose surgery is generally not a complicated procedure especially given the skill of doctors in Singapore, some downtime is to be expected. Nose surgeries usually take about 9-15 days to heal and even then, you might not want to go back to work immediately. Make sure you can afford at least 2-3 weeks of leave.

How much is a nose surgery in Singapore?
Singaporean cosmetic surgeons have a great reputation in Asia so be ready to pay for it. A good nose job in Singapore typically costs about $8,000 to $10,000, which might require some financial planning in the short term.

How much pain is involved?
Surprisingly, not much. A nose job in Singapore is a lot more comfortable compared to one done in Thailand or Malaysia, as Singaporean doctors seem to put alot of emphasis on reducing discomfort. If you’re the kind who gets jitters in an operating theatre you should definitely avoid getting a nose surgery done in cheaper countries.

What kind of results should I expect?
Be realistic. If you’re not born with the face of David Beckham, getting even the best nose job in Singapore will likely not change that. A nose job should provide a boost in confidence, so an improvement in your facial aesthetics is what you should be aiming for. This is also a big area for discussion pre-surgery so having a good doctor to communicate with is of prime importance.
