How Much Would a Tip Refinement Cost? (photo)

If I already had to get surgery to fix a deviated septum, is the septum surgery is covered by my insurance? I kind of hate my nose from the front most of the time. How bad do you think it is?

Cost of a tip refinement

The cost of the tip refinement or tip plasty  is approximately half of a full rhinoplasty cost. The tip- rhinoplasty must be paid for by the patient, while the septoplasty is usually billed to the patient's medical insurance once medical necessity has been documented. Co-pays and  deductibles  still apply for insurance related purposes.

Cost of nasal tip surgery

Good morning, thank you for your inquiry about the cost of tip rhinoplasty.


To give a broad range, the cost may be anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000.  I don't think sedation or anesthesia would be required as it adds to your recovery and costs.   You can do this under local anesthesia with ease in experienced hands.


Best of luck and be sure to get several consults.

How Much Would a Tip Refinement Cost?


The deffers from every surgeon. Our prices are 2000euros to 3000euros.

nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations.

In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.
