Choosing A Rhinoplasty Procedure
A Rhinoplasty, coloquially known as a ‘nose job’, aims to improve the profile of the nose, both for aesthetic reasons and for functional, such as making the nasal passage larger for easier breathing. Often, patients will want a small ridge on their nose smoothed out, and for this reason, rhinoplasty surgery and results varies greatly from person to person. Overall, patients report improvements in form and function after a nose job surger.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the “average cost of a rhinoplasty is ~$5,300”, according to 2018 statistics by the ASPS. The cost range can vary widely, based on the type of nose job performed, the location, surgeon’s level of expertise and operating costs like anesthesia & surgery room fees. On occasion, a rhinoplasty may be covered by insurance if a medical professional determines the airway is significantly obstructed. Consult with your insurance company on all fees before relying on this payment method.
