Shaving the cartilage on the nose is considered a rhinoplasty. Once the hump has been shaved your nasal sidewalls will need be narrowed. The average cost for a rhinoplasty is approximately $6,000.00, which includes the operating room, the surgeon’s fee, and the anesthesia.

Shaving down the bones or hump as well as thinning the tip are standard parts of a rhinoplasty. Because of the recession, we are providing a temporary price reduction on all cosmetic surgery of up to 40%. We also have available financing at a reasonable rate.

The cost will depend on where you have surgery, the experience of your surgeon, and exactly what needs to be done. Get several opinions, but a rhinoplasty will cost $6000-$9000.

Cost of bump shaving rhinoplasty.

The bump is usually made up of bone and cartilage. Therefore, usually after the bump is removed the bones have to be fractured since you have taken the " top off the tent". The cost would be according to time and the skill of the surgeon-$5-8000.
