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!

Rhinoplasty Costs

The cost will vary from $5,000 to $10,000 or more depending on the location, the surgeon and the extent of the surgery. This range likely would not include anesthesia and operating room charges.

Cost of Nose Surgery

 Thanks for the question. When it comes to costs of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure (quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider… are some of the potential variables involved. You will find some average costs of surgery on this website and on individual plastic surgeons' websites as well.

In regards to outcome of the planned procedure, more important than costs of the procedures will be careful selection of your plastic surgeon. I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.
Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to SEE lots of examples of their work AND preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

 I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways. I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.

The cost of rhinoplasty

A standard rhinoplasty will cost anywhere from $6,000-$10,000 depending on the level of complexity and location of the surgery. If you are in a metropolitan region of the USA you can expect to pay closer to the higher end. Schedule a consultation with a rhinoplasty surgeon to get a thorough consultation including photos and imaging to better understand the procedure.

Nose Surgery Cost Range

Depending on your location the cost can vary dramatically, from $4000-15000.  The price is dependent on the amount of work required, the level of expertise of the surgeon, and the length of time your surgery will take.

It's important to understand that there are multiple pieces that go into determining the overall cost of the procedure.  The surgeon's office does not collect all of those fees, much of it usually goes to supplies, facility fee, anesthesia fee, etc.

How Much Does Nose Surgery Cost

The cost of nose surgery t like other cosmetic surgery varies considerably across the country and even in the same area. South Florida tends to have lower fees then more expensive areas such as New York or Los Angeles. We charge starting at $4500 + MD Anesthesia related costs for nose surgery. Since you can get quality work at lower costs, patients will travel from throughout the state, the country, and internationally to have surgery in South Florida.

To ensure that you are receiving quality work at the most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. The quality must be maintained at the highest level to maintain accreditation. The surgeons also have incentive to hire and train quality staff (to ensure that surgery is efficient and enjoyable), to ensure comfortable and private facilities (to encourage referral), and to eliminate waste (to ensure that these facilities can compete effectively).

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.
