Thank you for the photo.  Costs of Plastic Surgery can vary greatly.  It depends on multiple factors, (location, experience of the surgeon, time needed in the Operating Room).  Best to see a few Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and/or Otolaryngologists, (ENT).  Together, you will make a plan to get to your goals.

The costs of a rhinoplasty for my patients varies from about $3500-$6000. We offer excellent financing and even in house if the patient does not qualify.

Costs vary by zip code and usual plus customary for regional areas.  Each surgeon will determine the amount of work necessary to achieve a particular result.  Often surgery cost is time-based these days.  The variation will be considerable but this should not be frustrating to the consumer.  If one selects a surgeon on his or her demeanor,  a review of of background and experience,  from the kind and thoughtful explanation of what procedure seems appropriate,  from a careful review of surgeon results, and from a cost breakdown that reflects a comprehensive analysis of what has to be done, then the consumer can be generally confident this is the office to enlist. From first glance this is a tough and challenging rhinoplasty case, due to the foreward overprojecting tip, long upper lip, and relative hump with a low nose take-off point from the front of the face.  One has to be careful with this nose. Therefore costs may vary considerably to attempt a one-procedure correction that satisfies your desires.  Seeing results for surgeries performed on nose shapes such as yours will be worthwhile in order to decide if you wish to spend with this office or not.

Great question so therefore there is no great answer.  First of all each surgeon based on his or her skill and practice demographics will decide what they charge.  Some has to do with the extent of the surgery.  Minor vs Major work.  As such there is a large range of costs for a rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty costs can vary tremendously so it's worth getting a number of consults.  I think for your case you could expect to pay $8000 to $10,000 inclusive of all costs.

A rhinoplasty procedure is a very difficult endeavor, so it's important to choose a surgeon based on extensive experience. The cost of a rhinoplasty is directly determined that the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure in an operating room, the amount of time monitored by a physician anesthesiologist under general anesthesia, and the surgeon's professional fees for performing the procedure, in addition to all of the postoperative follow-ups. For many rhinoplasty before-and-afters, and  our current price list, please see the link and the video below

Rhinoplasty cost varies by region, amount of time needed and of course the experience of the surgeon. Look at the surgeons work and see several very experienced rhinoplasty surgeons who do natural noses. Shop quality not price.

How Do You Determine the Cost of a Rhinoplasty?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Many factors are considered to determine the cost of a rhinoplasty such as the extent of work necessary, is the procedure a primary or revision, are cartilage grafts needed, etc. Fees are also influenced by the experience of each surgeon and the location of the operation. All of these charges are explained to the patient before the operation.  While cost is important to all of us don't just shop price; you want to avoid the need for any revisions. The most expensive is not necessarily the best but be careful.

The appearance of your nose can be improved with an artistically performed rhinoplasty. What would be the best approach  would depend on an examination and discussion about desired outcome. Fees vary depending on the extent of the procedure, location of the surgical practice, and experience as well as the reputation of the surgeon.

Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive ethnic rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon(otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
