Don't shop for surgical fees, or you'll get what you pay for.
It's difficult to give you a meaningful answer since what patients pay in Baltimore/Washington DC is different than LA or Chicago or Seattle. Rhinoplasty costs vary greatly according to geographic location and even by surgeon. There are, for example, surgeons in my area who perform just 5 rhinoplasties per year and charge $2000, but those of us that perform >100 per year charge 3-4x that amount. I'd advise seeing 2 surgeons in your area who are well-known for phenomenal rhinoplasty outcomes and go see them. Don't shop by surgical fees, or you'll get what you pay for.

This may cost $5000 at the low end. Most of these procedures are affordable with financing options. As a 17 year old, you will need your parents' consent. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Most facial plastic surgeons have a standard rhinoplasty fee here in San Diego, although some have different prices based on expected degree of difficulty of your nose/ need for implants, etc. Usually price will vary with the experience of your surgeon and may be from $5000 to $15,000. You may want to avoid the bottom pricing, but not necessarily choose the most expensive as this does not always reflect their skill. Use before and after photos to help you decide. Good Luck.

The fee for a rhinoplasty will really depend on the type of work being done ( how complex), the surgeon and the region of the country. In NYC, that can run from $6-$15,000. Good luck.
In general, rhinoplasty costs in San Jose, CA range from $5,000 to $8,000. Prices can vary depending upon the specific type of rhinoplasty performed and whether or not an anesthesiologist is used to perform general anesthesia. Be certain to check that your surgeon is a board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in rhinoplasty surgery. Also ask to see before and after photos of their rhinoplasty patients. Best wishes.

The average cost is $6-10,000. Do NOT shop price. Choose experience and good natural results. Paying for a revision of a cheap rhinoplasty costs more and the results not as good.

In addition to the rhinoplasty, consideration for a chin implant would help the facial balance and give the illusion her nose is not as projecting. please see the link below to our rhinoplasty photo gallery and price list.
