Paying for Combined Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty
It is not uncommon for a surgeon to offer a special
rate for both surgeries to be done simultaneously. However, be wary of a
surgeon who seems to be offering services at a much lower than usual rate- this
can be a sign that they are not fully qualified or board certified to perform
the procedures. Your best option would be to opt in for a financing plan
directly through your surgeon’s office. Also, oftentimes, insurance can cover
part of the cost of a septoplasty when it is considered a necessary medical procedure.
You should discuss with your surgeon. They may give you a discount, but this is something that must be determined by the surgeon since you'll paying for the whole surgery.
Combining Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty
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. Rhinoseptoplasty is an additional $2000 + MD Anesthesia related costs. 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).

Septoplasty and lower cost of rhinoplasty
generally if insurance is going to pay for a septopasty because it is medically indicated this should decreased the out of pockect cost to a patient for a rhinopalsty
Septoplasty, an operation that fixes a deviated or crooked septum, is typically covered by insurance. Rhinoplasty is considered cosmetic and you will ahve to apy out of pocket for that.
Sometimes, part of the rhinoplasty requires a septoplasty to be performed to aid in straightening the nose or to harvest cartilage. If that is your situation, you might find the surgeon was going to have to enter the septum anyway, and so may decrease the charge for the septoplasty. It is a case by case assessment.
Cost of combined SMR rhinopasty
The combined procedure will achieve an economy of scale in terms of pricing as it is performed through the same incision. This can be discussed with your plastic surgeon at the time of consultation.
We always do the septum and rhinoplasty surgery at the same time. Rarely will experienced surgeons bargain over their fees, but ask your physician if he/she can help you. Be careful -- don't make your final decision on the basis of cost.
Combining procedures to lower cost
Both a deviated septum surgery and rhinoplasty surgery can be done at the same time and makes good sense to do so. Any discount for the surgery would need to be discussed with your surgeon. Typically, a deviated septum surgery is done out of medical necessity and is covered by patient’s own medical insurance. The cost of a rhinoplasty is approximately $6,000, which includes the operating room, anesthesia, and the surgeon’s fee for performing the procedure. Where as the septoplasty is billed to the patient’s insurance.
Cost of Septo-Rhinoplasty surgery
Since you have no insurance, reimbursement is not an issue. But doing a Septoplasty at the time of a rhinoplasty definitely makes sense as it adds virtually nothing to the recovery and very little time to the surgery. Because of this, our office rarely charges extra for a Septoplasty done at the same time as a cosmetic rhinoplasty. Just talk with your surgeon, he may be willing to drop the surgical fee for the Septoplasty.
