Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Cost
Rhinoplasty is one of the more intricate cosmetic surgery procedures, which will have a significant impact on the facial balance and aesthetics. The costs of rhinoplasty are often required to be borne out of pocket because insurance will not cover an elective cosmetic procedure. Therefore, for many patients, the monetary amount becomes an important starting point.
At the time of pre-op consultation, the patient should freely ask questions about the costs involved. A responsible surgeon will ensure that the patient receives accurate information about the costs in order to make a well-considered decision.
Amazing and committed board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide rhinoplasty to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations in this part of the amazing state of Texas.
One of the key components in the costs of rhinoplasty will be the fee charged by the operating surgeon. The fee typically varies according to the surgeon’s professional qualifications and skill in the field of nose reshaping plastic surgery. For instance, a new surgeon who performs rhinoplasty under the supervision of a senior surgeon is likely to charge a smaller fee compared to a board certified and experienced plastic surgeon.
Surgical Room Expenses
The surgeon will usually have an option to perform rhinoplasty at a hospital, an ambulatory surgical center, or a private surgical suite. They will recommend the most appropriate choice to the patient. The estimated costs and benefits under each option will vary. Patients can make the final decision depending on their budget as well as the surgeon’s recommendation.
If rhinoplasty involves a substantial correction of the nose aesthetics or function, the surgeon may use general anesthesia to perform the surgery. This will be performed by an anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist, whose fee can differ according to their skills and experience. They will often charge by the hour, and will be present throughout the surgery in the operating room.
Extent of Surgery
If the nose surgery only involves a minor improvement such as removing of a nose bump, the cost will be lesser compared to a nose procedure which is more complicated.
Nose augmentation, nose reduction, nose reconstruction, implants, grafting and functional corrections will often cost more because of the increased length and complexity of the surgery. Board certified plastic surgeons at the ACPS receive patients from Houston, Texas, TX, and other suburbs and cities in The Lone Star State for rhinoplasty.
To have a correct estimate of overall costs, the patient should also consider the post-surgical expenses. This may include the costs of medical tests, prescription medications, and follow up visits to the surgeon’s office. If the patient suffers from an acne breakout or hyperpigmentation in the months following nose surgery, they may have to spend additionally on advanced skincare products.
Sometimes rhinoplasty may be performed to clear obstructions in the nasal airways and restore normal breathing through the nose. Conditions such as nasal vestibular stenosis, large inferior turbinate, nasal fractures or deviated nasal septum may cause nostril obstructions. If rhinoplasty is medically necessary, the patient may get full or partial insurance coverage according to their plan.
