My Nose is Straight but I Have a Dorsal Hump. Cost of Removal in Washington State?

From most angles my nose is straight. But if i turn completely to the side you see my dorsal hump. How much would it be to remove it? Seems like its a little hump since my nose is straight looking in most angles. Would that make it cheaper cost?

Rhinoplasty for dorsal hump removal

  In the majority of patients when the hump is removed, osteotomies will need to be performed.   Most patients will get a open roof deformity if you only take off the hump and do nothing else during the rhinoplasty. Also important to make sure  that the tip of the nose balances with remainder of the nose now that the bridge and line has been changed. Please see the link below for  the costs of a rhinoplasty in our practice. Virtual rhinoplasty software is also available on our website   to give you an idea what your new nose might look like without a hump.

The cost of rhinoplasties do depend on the amount of changes that are requested by patients. It sounds like your surgery would be straight forward. It's best to schedule an appointment with Plastic Surgeon in your area to see if you are a candidate for surgery.
