According to 2013 statistics, forwarded by American society of plastic surgeons, rhinoplasty cost varies from state to state in America. Its cost in New York is quite different from the cost of surgery in California or Los Angeles. The main behind this is the difference in living standards of the people living there.
Apart from the fees of the plastic surgeon, you have to pay fees for the anesthesia, for lab investigations, and to the hospital management as well depending upon your stay in the hospital. Then it also depends upon whether you want to undergo a proper operative surgery or you want non surgical technique for your deviated septum. Closed and non surgical rhinoplasty cost will vary from operative cost.
If you really want a best nose job, then you have to go through the operative procedure and for this you have to pay a bit more. Ethnic rhinoplasty, in which the surgical correction of your nose wouldn’t alter your ethnic characteristics, might cost you a bit more depending upon the amount of work the plastic surgeon does to your nose.
A common question usually comes into people’s mind, will a cosmetic nose job cost less if I have deviated septum? Well, the answer would be a definite “NO”. The reason is that you have to undergo two operations at the same time, Septoplasty op for your deviated septum; and rhinoplasty for correction of your nose appearance.
Nose Surgery Cost:
Nose surgery cost in US varies in variety of ways. You can easily estimate the total rhinoplasty cost in the following ways:
Nose job surgery cost ranges in US from $2,800 to $8,000 with an average price at around $5,500. The same amount triples if you have done your nose job in New York while the same surgery would cost you about $4,000 to $5,000 if you are doing it in Oklahoma.
If you are planning to perform your surgery in Los Angeles, then the cost would vary from $6,000 to $30,000. If you have already performed a surgery before and now you want to make some correction to it then it would cost you in the range of $10,000 to $15,000.
Non surgical rhinoplasty cost is very much low as compare to surgical techniques. The reason is that you only undergo a local anesthesia procedure rather than full general anesthesia. The non surgical technique cost will be from $380 minimum to $800 maximum.
Closed rhinoplasty is done by incising the nose from inside the nostril rather than making an external surgical incision. It isn’t practiced mainly in US and around the world. Although it take little time for closed rhinoplasty to heal and there is little bruising, but the cost estimation differs according to difficulty of the job and repair.
Both closed and open rhinoplasty cost would be performed in the hospital under general anesthesia and for this purpose you have to pay $1,500.
Hospital charges would range from $2000 to $3,500 for any indoor surgery.
Consultation fees before surgery would cost about $300 for the first time at least.
Post op medications and regular checkup would cost in the range of $150 to $300.
Rhinoplasty cost would be quiet less if you are insured with some health insurance company. Secondly, if you choose a hospital near your vicinity then it would also help you in saving the transport and hospital stay charges.
Nose job surgery is easy to do these days as it is very famous and performed almost all over the world. Before undergoing your surgery, it is better to consult your doctor and have a full discussion with him regarding the cost effectiveness, post operative recovery duration and whether he assures you that you would get the nose you actually are looking for or not. Let the plastic surgeon fully assess your nose first before you make up your mind for the surgery. Depending upon your financial status, you can go for either non surgical rhinoplasty or for operative rhinopl2sty.
Rhinoplasty and nose correction would bring harmony and sort of satisfaction in your life. You would start loving yourself, your life and your nose. So it’s better to stop worrying about the rhinoplasty cost and start making plans for your nose correction.
