Fees for cosmetic surgical procedures are based on three factors:
1. surgeon’s fee
2. facility fee
3. anesthesia fee.
The surgeon’s fee is generally based on skill level, experience and demand for services. In most of the major metropolitan areas, fees for rhinoplasty in competent hands ranges from approximately to $6,000 to $10,000 or even a little bit more if there are unusual or complicating circumstances. Some surgeons may charge unusually high fees and some surgeon charge very low fees.
Fees do not necessarily translate into results. It is best to shop for expertise and surgical skill rather than costs. Many times, patients have come to me for a consultation for revision rhinoplasty. Their complaints pertain to dissatisfaction from their surgical results when they have sought their surgery using cost as their major criterion.
