Rhinoplasty Cost

If you’re considering plastic surgery to reshape and redefine your nose, you’re probably wondering about cost.  Whether you want to correct breathing problems or to improve facial harmony and balance, expenses – along with your choice of surgeon – are important factors.

How much does rhinoplasty cost? There are many variables that come into play, which we outline below.

How much is rhinoplasty?

No two patients are the same, so the cost of a nose job can vary significantly depending on the complexity of your case, your aesthetic goals, your surgeon’s expertise and certifications, not to mention the geographical location where the rhinoplasty is being performed.

While surgery costs are a concern for most people, it’s important to begin your search for a board-certified plastic surgeon who has performed hundreds if not thousands of rhinoplasties and excels in this exceedingly technical procedure. It takes years of experience and training to effectively reshape and sculpt the nose to achieve an aesthetically harmonious outcome, while maintaining or enhancing breathing functionality.

Expect rhinoplasty costs to be higher if you are correcting a botched nose job, as revision rhinoplasty is more difficult and requires exceptional skill to minimize scarring without compromising airflow. Since no two rhinoplasty surgeries are alike, there may be additional expenses based on the complexity of your operation.

If you’d like more information about rhinoplasty cost in NYC with Dr. Thomas Loeb, our staff would be pleased to discuss estimated expenses for surgical and facility fees.

After meeting with patients in person, Dr. Loeb can develop a customized surgical plan that will give patients an up-front outline of costs for their rhinoplasty in NYC.

Average cost of rhinoplasty: factors to consider

Bear in mind that there are several factors that will determine the final cost of a rhinoplasty procedure. Anesthesiologist fees, just like those of a plastic surgeon, will hinge on their credentials, reputation, and skill level. If you are uncertain if the price you were quoted includes the following factors, ask your rhinoplasty surgeon to clarify.

Nose job costs may include:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fees (IV sedation or general)
  • Operating facility costs
  • Post-surgical garments
  • Follow-up visits

The nose job price you are quoted may or may not include ancillary expenses such as:

  • Initial consultation fee
  • Pre-operative medical tests
  • Prescription medications
  • Lab fees

Nose job cost covered by insurance?

Patients who suffer from breathing problems that may be relieved through rhinoplasty may have part of the cost covered by private insurance. This could include structural abnormalities of the septum or turbinates present from birth, or those resulting from an accident or illness. Nasal obstructions from deviated septums are a common reason for rhinoplasty, as it can improve airflow and breathing tremendously.

If your motives are purely cosmetic, however, then insurance will not reimburse for the procedure. It’s always a good idea to check with your insurance carrier beforehand, as terms and policy coverage can vary between companies.
