Rhinoplasty with cartilage shaving

Shaving the cartilage on the nose is considered a rhinoplasty. Once the hump has been shaved your nasal sidewalls will need be narrowed. The average cost for a rhinoplasty is approximately $6,000.00, which includes the operating room, the surgeon’s fee, and the anesthesia.

Cost of bump shaving rhinoplasty.

The bump is usually made up of bone and cartilage. Therefore, usually after the bump is removed the bones have to be fractured since you have taken the " top off the tent". The cost would be according to time and the skill of the surgeon-$5-8000.
