If you are frustrated or unhappy with the appearance of your nose, rhinoplasty can give it an aesthetically pleasing appearance.  Rhinoplasty can require a large financial commitment so one of the questions potential candidates always ask about the procedure is  – How much does a rhinoplasty cost.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is often done for cosmetic purposes to change the shape or size of the nose.  However, it can also be performed for functional reasons to correct impaired breathing or some other medical problem.

How Much Does A Rhinoplasty Cost?

According to statistics published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in  2018, the average cost of rhinoplasty was $5,350.   However, there are several components not included in this figure that can increase the final cost.

What Influences The Cost Of Rhinoplasty?

  • Skill Of The Surgeon: Highly skilled and experienced facial cosmetic surgeons are likely to charge more for surgery than surgeons that are less accomplished or just starting their careers.
  • Complexity Of Surgery: A complex reconstructive nose job that takes more time to perform will cost more than a procedure that is less complicated.
  • Location Of The Practice: Surgery generally costs more in areas that have a high cost of living. 

Add-on fees such as anesthesia fees, surgical facility fees, and the cost of prescription medications can also push up the final cost of surgery. 

Rhinoplasty performed for cosmetic purposes is not covered by medical insurance, so patients are advised to review financial options before surgery.

What fillers are used for a liquid nose job?

If you want to change the appearance of your nose, you don’t necessarily have to resort to surgery to get the look you want, a liquid nose job may be all you need. The liquid nose job is gaining popularity because it is quick, easy, and virtually painless.

What is a liquid nose job?

A liquid nose job (non-surgical rhinoplasty) is a minimally invasive procedure in which dermal fillers are used to reshape the nose. It is a quick treatment that delivers dramatic results, and requires zero downtime.

A liquid nose job is usually done to even out the surface of the nose and cover-up imperfections such as a dorsal hump, or crooked bridge. It can also refine the tip of the nose.

What fillers are used for a liquid nose job?

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are the fillers most often used to perform a liquid nose job. HA fillers are ideal for this procedure because they add volume to camouflage bumps and humps. In addition, if patients don’t like the results, an enzyme known as hyaluronidase can be injected into the nose to dissolve the filler.

How long do the results last?

The results of a liquid nose job are temporary, and can last anywhere from 6-12 months, depending on the type of filler used.

Would you like to change the appearance of the nose you were born with? You’re not alone, because rhinoplasty or nose surgery is a very common procedure among men and women in the US, including African Americans.

What is African American Rhinoplasty?

African American rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is done to alter the appearance of the nose, in people of African American descent. It typically involves narrowing the nostrils, or elevating the bridge of the nose. The goal of African American rhinoplasty is to create facial harmony and balance, while maintaining the patient’s unique ethnic features.

African American Rhinoplasty is a customized procedure that must be done based on the specific aspects of the patient’s face. Before performing African American rhinoplasty, the plastic surgeon will conduct a thorough evaluation of the patient’s nose, and discuss their aesthetic goals. Based on the foregoing, the surgeon will be able to determine the best way to alter the nose, so as to achieve facial harmony.

Patients wishing to undergo African American Rhinoplasty, should choose a plastic surgeon with the surgical skills and expertise to achieve a cosmetic result that improves the appearance of their nose, while maintaining ethnic consistency.

Who is a good candidate for African American rhinoplasty?

African Americans that are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose, but want to preserve their ethnic identity, may be good candidates for African American rhinoplasty. Candidates for African American rhinoplasty typically seek to refine a bulbous tip, or narrow a wide nasal base or wide bridge (click here to learn more).
