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.

Hump removal, cost.

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Each individual is different. Some folks only need a little surgery, like taking down the hump. One may need cartilage trim. One may need in-fracturing. One may also want to reduce the projection of the nose. Sometimes operating on one part of the nose may effect another part. It is best to see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. Visit with a few of them. Take a look at the before/after photos. Ask your questions. Together, you should be able to garner a plan to achieve your goals. The cost may depend on many factors, including the complexity of your nose, time spent in the OR, the city that you live in.

Unfortunately I cannot answer this question directly. Many factors influence the price of the rhinoplasty like location of the doctor, if the doctor is specialized, revision or primary rhinoplasty, what specific procedures are being done to the nose etc. An average rhinoplasty cost in my office ranges from $8,000 to $15,000. Plastic surgeons want you to shop for a doctor who is going to have the same aesthetic eye as you. Every nose is different, and every rhinoplasty is different. You should look for a plastic surgeon who is an artist and should be a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty as 100% of their practice. 

All the best,

Removal of a dorsal hump may necessitate other maneuvers during rhinoplasty surgery.

Removing a dorsal hump may disrupt the ligaments fixating the bottom of your bridge to your nasal tip, and if this is not addressed with tip support during rhinoplasty surgery, tip droopiness may occur postoperatively. Estimating a cost of hump removal may be a that of a rhinoplasty fee. Hope this helps. Dr Joseph

                  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. 

Rhinoplasty Fees

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.  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.
