We have divided the whole process in 6 steps

Case Assessment

Case assessment is your first step towards a successful operation in Iran or Norway. It starts with you making contact with us by phone, call back service, chat or email.

Obtain a Quote

Based on the initial information we receive from you, we issue a preliminary quote and planing your operation. Complex cases can take a little longer since a more detailed review is required, which will usually take place within 24-48 hours after the first case assessment.

Travel Planing

After the medical review, we provide you with a quote for the total package. This contains all the costs of the trip including travel and accommodation for you and any family members, operation, any additional trips to Iran or Norway, etc. This quote does not usually differ much from the preliminary quote you received unless the medical review has revealed something unexpected.

Treatment in Tehran

Upon arrival at your destination in Iran or Norway, you are met by a member of the Dr.Saman´s team. On the way to the hospital or the hotel, we review your data and reconfirm the details. You meet Dr.Saman and the anesthesiologist on the day before your planned operation, and additional tests are conducted if necessary. You then receive your Rhinoplastic operation.


There are two aspects to after care: While you are still in Germany and when you are back in your home country.

While you are still in Iran

Depending on the surgical treatment you have received, you may want to take advantage of DrSaman`s respected medication or information during your recovery. We are happy to plan this in line with your medical needs and preferences.

In your home country

It is very unlikely that you will develop any complications when you are back at home. In the event of mild complications, we will recommend a local surgeon who has been evaluated and approved by us beforehand.
If your complications are severe (which is very unlikely) we will arrange treatment for you back in Iran or Norway, provided you are well enough to travel, or in your home country.
In the event of mild complications, we will recommend a surgeon in your area. This surgeon has been interviewed by us and deemed to be supportive of your medical travel.

Cost & Quality

The decision to travel abroad for Rhinoplasy is one that deserves careful consideration. While patients are right to be critical about costs, the price usually reflects the level of quality they can expect.
'Quality' applies to the quality of the operation and the medical care you receive, the quality of the experience during your stay in the hospital, and quality of service provided - from the moment you leave your home until the day you return, and beyond.
Of course, medical travel involves various types of costs. However, for many patients, the good quality/cost ratio is a key reason for choosing to receive medical care in Norway/Iran.
Dr.Samn`s team vil help patients to assess the costs and the quality when they are exploring the opportunities for receiving the operation in Norway/Iran.

However, Norway and also Iran are renowned for excellent professional standards in terms of surgeons, hospitals and healthcare facilities, medical devices, medicines and The quality of surgeon and hospitals plays a large part in the overall quality of your treatment. In Norwegian/Iranian hospitals, it is not uncommon for a patient to receive 'interdisciplinary' review and treatment. In other words, several surgeons - all of them experts in their respective fields - will look after you if required, with one physician overseeing the entire treatment process.

Iran in an international perspective.

On an international scale, Iran is not the cheapest country to visit for healthcare, but nor is it the most expensive. In terms of low prices, countries like India are of course cheaper, but from a price/quality standpoint Iran is hard to beat. Iran offers a superior Rhinoplasty operation that is world best quality. For patients from the USA, and Europe for example, the savings can be 50% or more. Furthermore, despite a high standard of living, the cost of living in Iran remains relatively low when compared to Western European cities and their international counterparts. In a 2012 survey of the cost of living worldwide by Mercer LLC, for instance, no Iranian city ranked in the top 50 of the world's most expensive cities. At the same time, the Iranian infrastructure in medicine is superbly developed and makes use of some of the world's most advanced medical technologieis and experiences.


There are possible many questions when you are deciding to choose for medical treatment outside your homecountry. We have listed some frequently asked Questions. Please do not hesitate to contact us for your questions! We are happy to answer your questions.


Do hospitals have accreditation and a quality management system?

Do hospitals in Norway/Iran have accreditation and a quality management system? Yes.

The body supervising this is the Federal Department of Quality Assurance (BQS). Despite the name it is not part of the government but a service provider to the Government.

What if there is a complication?

Unfortunately, no trusted highly qualified doctor or hospital in the world will give you a guarantee that there will be no complication after a procedure. They can't because complications occur as a result of a variety of interconnected and unpredictable events. No matter where you are in the world and no matter how skilled the surgeon or well equipped the hospital, there is always a risk for complications. The only way to avoid complications is by not having the procedure done.
The good news is, that most complications occur in the first few days after surgery. (Just to be clear, not just in Iran or Norway, but everywhere). This is why Dr.Saman will recommend that you stay in Iran Or Norway for at least a few days after your Rhinoplasty surgery . He would like to make sure that healing occurs without problems, that any medication is showing the desired effect.
At this point the chances of any complication will already be statistically reduced. However,Dr.Samans team does not stop there. We have a two arms approach to managing complications when you are back at home:
1. You will be going home not only with your complete medical records on a data carrier (Journal, operation record) but also with a set of instructions what to do and what to avoid.
2. If there are complications, that are evidently related to the procedure, contact us immediately.
Dr.Saman will work with you to determine what is better for you and your health: Getting a correction done back at home or here in Iran/Norway.
