People often ask if rhinoplasty expensive? The cost of rhinoplasty varies. It depends on one region of the country. Also, it depends the level of expertise of the surgeon. There are more plastic surgeons and facial surgeons who do not offer rhinoplasty than there are those that do.
This operation is the most challenging of all cosmetic procedures. It begins with a clear vision of how a particular nose should look its best on a certain individual. Then the surgical skill to create it. Again, the cost is relative.
The more knowledge, experience, skill, training, and talent a surgeon has, the higher the cost. Our costs include a facility fee, anesthesia, and my surgical service. In the hands of a plastic surgeon who has experience and board-certification, a primary rhinoplasty starts at 14,000 and can go up depending on the complexity of the case and additional procedures. If you add to that internal structural work, rib grafting or other cartilaginous harvesting for graphs the cost may rise.
IS RHINOPLASTY EXPENSIVE?
The cost range found on the real self site is NOT accurate. If you look at some ads for surgical procedures, and read the fine print you will see the additional costs are not inclusive in the advertisement fee. You must add all components to determine the actual cost. In our practice, you will receive a global fee that includes all major elements. Furthermore, our surgical fee includes one year of no charge follow-up care.
ONLY NEED MY TIP SMALLER, AND REMOVE THE HUMP…
It is not feasible or my recommendation to address only one area of the nose. For example, the tip. When you assemble your clothing for an outing or apply your makeup before an event, you address the entirety of your look. You don’t apply lipstick to just one lip. You don’t apply your makeup to just one eye. Your clothing ensemble must coordinate and have supportive matching throughout. This is the fundamental principle of style and aesthetics. The same applies to the nose. Once you change or alter one aspect of the nose, all other relationships are altered and must be brought in to conformity to create the best aesthetic look.
Cosmetic procedures are classically and usually not considered a covered expense nor medically necessary. However, certain internal structural changes that affect breathing may be considered medically necessary and a covered expense. We however, do not work with insurance companies. So in general – and with some exceptions – cosmetic rhinoplasty is not covered by insurance.
