Rhinoplasty Cost

Thank you for your question. It is understandable that you would like to have information about the cost of surgery as soon as possible. Your plastic surgeon must first complete a thorough evaluation before your individualized surgical plan can be developed. Following this, the fees required for your surgery will be discussed with you. While most insurance plans will not pay for aesthetic nose reshaping, they frequently will cover surgery performed on the internal structures of the nose to improve breathing problems. Your plastic surgeon can discuss this with you during your personal consultation. Best of luck!

How much will it cost to reduce my nose?

Before you decide on this treatment know that it will require incisions and a scar at the edge of each nostril where it meets your face. In many patients these heal very well but not in everyone. Also perfectly symmetric nostrils may not always be possible if yours are not already symmetric. Before you even think about cost you must be certain that the risks and benefits are right for you :)

Alarplasty

Thank you for your question.

The procedure you are describing is called an Alarplasty. An alarplasty is the technique that is commonly used for nostril reduction. This procedure consists of making an incision on the inside or outside of the nostrils then removing a specific amount of tissue to reduce the size and/or make more symmetrical. I recommend that you schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty to have a nasal examination performed and a review of your medical history to see if you are a good candidate for an alarplasty. In regards to the cost, it varies based on surgeon and location. I can tell you that the RealSelf average cost for a rhinoplasty is between $2,000-$4,000. Best of luck in your endeavors.

Reducing the nostrils

Cost is a relative term without fully understanding the complexity of a specific nose. If it is truly just reducing the nostril size without changing any other features of the nose, you could potentially do this under local anesthesia to reduce cost. The cost would be in the range of $3,000-$4,000. Keep in mind though that you would require a full consultation with photos and imaging to better understand the procedure specific to your nose. Hope this helps.

Cost of Rhinoplasty

The cost of rhinoplasty procedures depends on many factors, including exactly what you would like changed. It really takes a consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to help you define your goals and describe exactly what is needed. Some patients need only a tip modification, others need a hump removed and the nose straightened. It is worth taking the time to investigate not only what you want changed, but the experience of the surgeon as well.

Rhinoplasty

Hello and thank you for your question. Cost of rhinoplasty varies based on geographic region and surgeon expertise.  Make sure you specifically look at before and after pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon and not just a computer animation system. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.
