Cost of Asian Rhinoplasty compared to Rhinoplasty for Caucasians

Asian rhinoplasty is not necessarily more expensive than rhinoplasty for caucasians. However, not all surgeons have the requisite experience and expertise to perform Asian rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty Cost

Thank you for your question. It all really depends on what you want overall. It is understandable that you would like to have information about the cost of surgery as soon as possible. Your plastic surgeon must first complete a thorough evaluation before your individualized surgical plan can be developed. Following this, the fees required for your surgery will be discussed with you. While most insurance plans will not pay for aesthetic nose reshaping, they frequently will cover surgery performed on the internal structures of the nose to improve breathing problems. Your plastic surgeon can discuss this with you during your personal consultation. Best of luck!

Thank you for your question. The cost of Asian rhinoplasty should not differ from a regular rhinoplasty. The nomenclature simply refers to the surgeon adhering to the patient's desires to keep intact certain ethnic features exclusive to Asian faces and skin types. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to learn more about cost, recovery and results.

Asian rhinoplasty cost

Asian rhinoplasty doesn't necessarily cost more than a Caucasian rhinoplasty. The cost is typically related to the complexity of the procedure and whether it is a revision case.

Is Asian rhinoplasty more or less expensive than regular rhinoplasty

In our practice the cost is the same. The determining factor is whether not it's a revision rhinoplasty which takes longer and therefore it does cost more. For more information, many  before and after examples of  rhinoplasty and  our current price list, see the link and the video below

Is Asian Rhinoplasty More Expensive?

Ethnicity has no impact on the cost of rhinoplasty surgery. The fees depend on what needs to be done regardless of skin color. I suggest you submit pictures in this forum, send pictures to rhinoplasty surgeons who participate here, or consult with a rhinoplasty specialist for an evaluation and discussion of fees.
