Rhinoplasty Rocks!


As a Facial Plastic Surgeon Rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedure I perform. The cost varies considerably depending on what is needed from $3500 to $10,000. For example removal of a bony hump that can be easily filed down is going to cost much less then a Rhinoplasty where controlled bone cuts, tip work, need for multiple grafts to help restore form and function and a chin implant to balance the facial appearance. I would caution you to not have price as your deciding factor on who you chose. Make sure you critically exam their before and after photos, review testimonials and ask about revision rate. Enjoy the journey and God Bless!

How much does a Rhinoplasty cost


Ok so this is a really good but difficult question to answer.  Unlike breast augmentation where you have only a few factors, like Saline vs Silicone implants, etc, determining the cost, with Rhinoplasty there are MANY factors that influence the cost of the surgery.  First the majority of doctors do a quick limited rhinoplasty where they simply remove a bunch of things like the hump, etc.  This is generally cheap as the doctor doesnt do much.  Be careful though because while your nose may look good early on, with time the nose often changes and for the worse.  The nose has no structure.  Alternatively you can do the same rhinoplasty where your surgeon takes part of your septum and puts it in hidden places he has weakened, so as the years pass your nose stays stable and the same.  This surgery can be much longer, more difficult and hence more expensive.  In my opinion guys who do a lot of rhinoplasties prefer this approach.  Make sure to do your homework.  Fixing a bad nose is much more difficult than you think and at the end will cost you more

Hope that helps

The cost of rhinoplasty depends on how much work is necessary


The surgery you are talking about is essentially rhinoplasty. The cost of rhinoplasty varies due to the amount of work that is necessary as well as factors such as surgeon, geographic region, and potentially if you have breathing problems covered by insurance.

Cost of Nose Surgery


It all depends on what you need.  Cost is usually dictated by how long a procedure is going to take.  There are costs that the surgeon does not have control over, (OR fees, Anesthesiologist fees, etc).  These are all charged by the hour.  Please don't have cost your first priority.  Cheap becomes expensive fast if something goes awry.  Please seek out a board certified plastic surgeon or otolagyngologist, (ENT).

A bad rhinoplasty can be very expensive!


Rhinoplasty is one of the most usual plastic surgery procedures in men. The average cost in Spain and Europe, ranges from 5500 US$ to 7500 US$. In my opinion rhynoplasty is one of the most difficult surgery in plastic surgery, because there is no margin for a "mistake". Choose an experienced board certified plastic surgeon; cost is important but secondary.

Rhinoplasty is a very individualized operation and the price varies based on the extent of the work required and the length of the procedure. The range can be from $5500 to $8000. Cost is certainly a factor but experience, the total quality of care and credentials should factor into your decision making.

Cost of rhinoplasty approximately $6,000-$8000

Approximate cost for a rhinoplasty is $6000.00-8000.00, which includes the operating room, surgeon’s fee and anesthesia. It is always best to shop quality, not price since this is your face. It is critical to get your nose done right the first time. Make sure you are having your rhinoplasty done by a board certified facial plastic surgeon that has experience with thousands of rhinoplasties. In addition, you want to have a board certified anesthesiologist who has performed thousands of anesthetics in an ambulatory surgery center facility that is certified and licensed.  This will help ensure patient safety and comfort.

Rhinoplasty requires experience


The costs of Rhinoplasty are based on the anatomic findings of the nose and other factors such as complexity, time estimate, emotional integrity, and the skill and experience of the surgeon. The areas of concern listed indicate a complete Rhinoplasty. Remember, cost is only one component in the decision-making process --quality, service, outcome, and experience are keys to a good result.
