How long would a rhinoplasty will take from consultation to recovery?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 03 February 2012


I am seriously considering rhinoplasty and after much research I have narrowed it down to just a few surgeons, including yourself.

Although, I am currently working in the UAE but have two months holiday during summer in which I would travel back to the UK to stay with family.

I would like to be in the UK for the shortest time possible. How long would you suggest that the whole process will take from consultations, through surgery and then to being well enough to fly back to the UAE again?


It is possible to start the process with a consultation via e-mail and Skype, and to complete it with a formal consultation, which will reduce the time spent in England before the operation.

After the surgery, I would suggest a minimum of 2 weeks in the UK.

In total, a 3 week period would be advisable.
