How Much Does Dorsal Hump Removal Cost?

Frequently more than just a hump needs to be removed from your nose
Many patients come in for consultations requesting just a hump removal. This is sometimes the case. More often, reducing just a hump can throw a nose out of balance. A qualified rhinoplasty expert can discuss the options in rhinoplasty with you. I like to use computer imaging to demonstrate what hump removal alone can achieve vs. more a more complete rhinoplasty. This is the nose you want to have for the rest of your life, price should be a secondary consideration.
Hump removal is usually only part of a rhinoplasty.
Once the hump is removed the nose may need to be fractured to create a normal bridge. Also, you may need other parts done once this is done to be balanced. Cost varies. Choose an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to get the best result and don't shop price.
Removal of a dorsal hump may necessitate other maneuvers during rhinoplasty surgery.

Dorsal Hump Removal in Midwest, US: $4000-$7000
Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. 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 differences and local competition. It’s also important to understand the surgeon’s revisional surgery policies. Hopefully this won’t be necessary, but revisions occur for a multitude of reasons. When all of these variables are considered, fees in the Midwestern United States vary from $4,000 to $7,000. 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 a good reputation and experience in performing rhinoplasty.
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).
