Cost Factors in Rhinoplasty
The cost of rhinoplasty can differ from one practice to another and even from one patient to another at the same practice. A number of factors may go into determining the overall cost of this plastic surgery procedure.
Where the Practice is Located
The cost of living index varies from one region to another, which can impact the cost of most types of goods and services, including the services provided by a cosmetic surgeon. For instance, the cost of rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas may not be the same as the cost of the same procedure in Denever, CO.
A cosmetic surgeon may charge a fee based on their qualifications, experience, and recognition in the field of nose surgery. This can impact the overall cost of rhinoplasty between two practices.
Anesthesia and Surgical Room Costs
Rhinoplasty may be performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The fee charged by the anesthesiologist may vary according to their skills and experience. The cost of the surgical facility may also vary depending on the kind of technologies, personalized care and service, experienced staff and amenities provided at a particular facility.
Complexity of Surgery
Rhinoplasty can be a widely varied procedure, depending on the facial anatomy, condition of the nose, and the unique aesthetic goals of a patient. Some patients may need only a minor improvement such as removal of a bump from the nasal bridge or sharpening of the nasal tip.
Some other patients may need extensive surgery, which may include cartilage grafting or synthetic implants, or even complete nose reconstruction in some cases. Sometimes the patient may need a functional correction along with aesthetic enhancement. The overall cost of rhinoplasty plastic surgery may vary depending on the extent and complexity of surgery involved.
Insurance and Financing
Full or partial cost of rhinoplasty may be covered by health insurance only if the procedure is performed for medical reasons to correct a functional anomaly such breathing obstruction. However, when the procedure is performed purely as a cosmetic surgery, the cost may have to be borne only by the patient.
