Septoplasty versus rhinoplasty
A septoplasty is usually covered by insurance but if you have to pay out of pocket it ranges from $2000-$3000.
A rhinoplasty price ranges from $3000-$10,000 depending on what it entails.
Is a septoplasty with a rhinoplasty cheaper than having just the rhinoplasty? How much cheaper is it?
The rhinoplasty will cost the same whether the septoplasty is performed or not. Rhinoplasty would provide benefit to shaping the nose and refining it to provide balance.

Based on your photos, you are an excellent candidate for Rhinoplasty. Consult with a board certified Plastic Surgeon for an exam to determine exactly what is needed, and cost involved. This will allow you to start saving your money for this goal. Best wishes!
