Cost of Septorhinoplasty

Your out of pocket expenses will be the surgeon's fee less the amount your insurance company will pay for the septoplasty. Cost will vary from $5,000-10,000 - ask the surgeons you plan to consult. While cost is very important to all of us, don't  let that be your only parameter. Carefully choose an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon whose results you like.

Costs for Rhinoplasty with Septoplasty

I think the average surgeon's fee in Ohio for Rhinoplasty ranges from $3500 to $5000. This does not include the facility fee and anesthesia fee. If you are going to be asleep to have your septum corrected, refining your nose with some rhinoplasty techniques may not take much additional time.

I would recommend you consult with a board certified surgeon to discuss your goals.

You may be able get the cosmetic results you want for a lower cost because part of you surgery would be covered under insurance.

According to Realself data, the average fee for rhinoplasty surgery is around $7,400.

That fee may vary depending on your location, and whether it includes anesthesia and facility is unclear. Hope this is helpful for you.Dr Joseph

Cost of rhinoplasty with septoplasty

The cost of rhinoplasty will vary depending on the complexity of the surgery (primary versus revision, tip work versus bony work, need for grafting, alar reduction, etc) as well as the skill and qualification of the surgeon. Geographical location will also influence the cost. You should also look at the OR fee and anesthesiologist fee. Many surgeons do not have their own operating room and OR fees can be quite expensive. Often times the prices that are initially quoted only include the surgeon's professional fee. That said, in southern california, for a primary rhinoplasty, a ballpark out of pocket cost would be $7000 to $10000. The price may be a little lower if there is insurance coverage of the septoplasty portion.  Obviously, don't choose your surgeon based solely on who is the cheapest. This is your face and rhinoplasty is a complex operation that requires considerable skill to do well. See someone well respected in your area who can guide you through the process.

In the mid-west, $6000-$9000.

Rhinoplasty performed in combination with septoplasty is a commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure.Occasionally, a portion of this procedure is covered by insurance, but in most cases insurance isn’t a factor for the rhinoplasty portion.Prices for this procedure vary widely and depend on several variables.It’s important to make sure that your fee quote includes the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges, and pre and post-operative care.These components may vary widely depending on the surgeons practice.
Generally, surgeons who operate in dedicated outpatient cosmetic surgery facilities are able to offer lower facility fees than those who operate in hospital based practices.Anesthesia fees can vary and this may be related to the use of a nurse anesthetist verses a physician anesthesiologist.
Finally, the physician’s fee may vary depending on regional difference and local competition.When all of these variables are considered, fees in the Midwestern United States vary from $6,000 to $9,000.It’s important to remember that price is an important part of your decision, but it’s not the only consideration.Make sure your surgeon is board certified and has experience performing rhinoplasty surgery.

Septorhinoplasty Costs

The costs of rhinoplasty like the costs most procedures vary significantly among regions and even within a county. The costs are higher in more expensive areas such as New York or Los Angeles, or in areas with fewer board certified plastic surgeons. We currently charge starting at $3500 + MD Anesthesia related costs for rhinoplasty. Septoprhinoplasty will add about $2000 + MD Anesthesia related fees. Because you can get quality work for less in South Florida, many patients will come from throughout the country and world to have surgery here.

To ensure quality work at most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. These surgeons must maintain the highest standards to keep accreditation. Moreover, the surgeons are motivated to ensure quality and properly trained staff (to minimize time and frustration in surgery), private and comfortable facilities (to ensure continued referrals), and less waste (to ensure that they can remain competitive financially with other centers).

Consult with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

Rhinoplasty cost

Pricing varies depending on the surgeon and city where they are. It can also depend on the type of rhinoplasty you want and the extent of correction required. In Toronto, Ontario, it ranges from $8000-$10000. A portion of this may be covered by insurance because you will be getting your deviated septum corrected.

Septal surgery combined with aesthetic surgery

It makes sense to combine a surgery to improve breathing (septoplasty) with additional surgery to improve appearance (rhinoplasty) rather than to have to undergo 2 surgeries. Health insurance typically helps cover some of the costs of functional (breathing) surgery but sometimes more than one procedure is indicated. IE, there may have been trauma that must be dealt with or spreader grafts to widen the airway are sometimes needed. Costs typically involve the actual surgical procedure, use of a surgical facility and an anesthesiologist (to make the whole experience more pleasant!). Actual costs will vary from location to location and surgeon to surgeon. But choose your surgeon very very carefully: one who performs nasal surgery as a core part of his/her practice and is board certified in an appropriate specialty are good starters.

Cost of rhinoplasty

I would agree with the other reviewers. Performing a rhinoplasty at the same time of a corrective septoplasty is the time to do it. insurance should cover the septum correction. as for the rhinoplasty portion I agree to not save a few dollars and be careful who is performing that portion. revision procedures are more costly, more difficult sometimes and a long night mare for you. I recommend waiting 1 year after someone has had a rhinoplasty elsewhere before performing a revision.

surgical fees depend on the surgery performed and range from about $3500 to $14,500.  If the surgery is a second or third revision surgery and multiple cartilage grafts need to be taken to rebuild structure, the surgery  cost is higher.  if a simple procedure is necessary the time of surgery and cost is less.
