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.
