Rhinoplasty, which is also known as a nose job or nasal surgery, is a treatment that resets and reshapes the nose for a wide range of reasons. The procedure may be used for health reasons to improve the function and natural breathing after an injury or condition. Alternatively, it may be completed for purely cosmetic incentives.
The procedure can set out to achieve several outcomes, such as;
- Increase or reduce the size of your nose.
- Reduce the bridge or nasal tip.
- Improve your overall facial appearance.
- Enhance your breathing.
- Correct issues associated with a deviated septum.
Dr. Lawton is a board-certified specialist and can complete rhinoplasty treatments for cosmetic reasons, health motives, or a combination of the two.
Average Cost for Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is a life-changing procedure that must be completed to the very highest standard to unlock the above benefits and more. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that the average cost of a nose job in 2019 was $5,409. This covers the surgeon fee, but there are additional costs, such as the anesthetic, to consider.
While it is a more expensive treatment than many others, the life-changing results are truly incredible. Moreover, the treatment is only needed once to deliver permanent corrections to the nose.
Factors that Influence Rhinoplasty Cost
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ average price gives you a rough estimate of what to expect from rhinoplasty. In reality, though, an extensive range of contributing factors will influence the overall cost, including but not limited to;
- Geographic location within the U.S.
- The skill and experience of your surgeon.
- Anesthesia and surgical facility fees.
- Medical tests and post-surgery medications.
- Overnight hospital or surgery stays.
Likewise, using the nose job in conjunction with facelifts or other facial treatments can impact the cost.
If the treatment is required for health reasons, the procedure will probably be covered by your medical insurance. In any case, you need to have complete confidence in your surgeon and feel suitably prepared for all aspects of treatments ranging from expectations to the recovery period.
