Rhinoplasty in the Midwest: $4000-$7000
Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. Prices for this procedure vary widely and depend on several variables. It’s important to make sure that you’re fee quote includes the surgeons fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges and pre and post-operative care. These components may vary widely depending on the surgeons practice?
Generally, surgeons who operate in dedicated outpatient cosmetic surgery facilities are able to offer lower facility fees than those who operate in hospital based practices. Anesthesia fees can vary and this may be related to the use of a nurse anesthetist verses a physician anesthesiologist.
Finally, the physician’s fee may vary depending on regional differences and local competition. It’s also important to understand the surgeon’s revisional surgery policies. Hopefully, this won’t be necessary, but revisions occur for a multitude of reasons. When all of these variables are considered, fees in the Midwestern United States vary from $4,000 to $7,000. It’s important to remember that price is an important part of your decision, but it’s not the only consideration. Make sure your surgeon is board certified and has a good reputation and experience in performing rhinoplasty.
The price of aesthetic procedures can vary widely. It can depend on the city that you are in, the cost of the O.R. and anesthesia. It us usually predicated on how much time the surgeon needs to spend in the O.R. See a few plastic surgeons before making your selection. Ask the office manager to break down the cost for you. Remember that cheap can become very expensive if there is an issue.

Do not shop price! That is not to say the most expensive is necessarily the best, but carefully evaluate the experience and previous results of your surgeon. The cost varies from $7,000-16,000 depending on how complicated the problem.
Rhinoplasty Costy Can Vary
The price of a rhinoplasty can vary significantly. Factors that affect the price include your surgeon's geographic location, level of experience, and the techniques and time required to perform your surgery. The American Socieity for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's Statistics on Cosmetic Surgery note that the national average surgeon's fee for 2007 was approximately $4800. Most patients can expect their rhinoplasty to cost between $6000 and $12000. You should check with your doctor to find out what other fees are involved, such as anesthesia fees or surgical center fees.
Most insurance companies will not pay for nasal surgery performed for cosmetic reasons. Occassionally, they will cover surgery performed to correct post-traumatic deformities. Insurance will, however, pay for the portion of a rhinoplasty that is done to improve your breathing -- i.e., correcting a deviated septum (septoplasty) or reconstructing collapsed breathing passages (spreader grafts). You should check with your physician to see if he accepts insurance and whether or not you are a candidate for these types of procedures.
It depends on the surgeon and the extent of the surgery.
Choose an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon and don't try looking for a deal! The cost varies between $6000-15,000. The more complex, the more the time and the cost.
Do not select your rhinoplasty (nose) surgeon based on price
There is a tremendous range in fees for rhinoplasty. The factors involved include
- Geographic area in US. Northeast tends to be more expensive. Medical tourism is becoming more popular. I am seeing increasing requests for revision rhinoplasty work in patients who had their surgery abroad in the hopes of saving money. I would be very cautious unless you have done your homework and other patients have seen this surgeon.
- The type of rhinoplasty being performed- reducing a bump on the bridge costs less than when the entire nose including the tip is refined.
- Type and experience of surgeon- a plastic surgeon who tends to specialize on facial plastic surgery, in particular nasal surgery, will tend to charge more their expertise. In my opinion, well worth it. Plastic surgeons educate other doctors at the university level also tend to have more experience and skill. Do it right the first time and save later in revision fees.
- primary vs revision rhinoplasty- having to revise another surgeon's work always costs more.
In summary, you will see fees ranging from $3,000 to 15,000
