   Dorsal hump removal is considered cosmetic, and insurance will not cover this.  The cost will probably be $5000 for the surgeon's fee, anesthesia, and OR costs.  Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Typically the costs for a limited rhinoplasty can range from 1500 to 2500 in our area plus anesthesia and facility. I am not aware of any insurance companies that will pay for that procedure. Good luck.
