Nose job cost varies depending on where you are in the United States. It can be from $5,000 to $12,000, and every location is different. In most cases, this cost is not covered by insurance. This is the reason many people try to reduce the cost of nose surgery by going abroad. They really should not do that. Countries where nose surgery is cheaper also tend to be countries that offer very little in the way of malpractice protection.
When thinking about the cost of nose surgery, remember what goes into that cost. In addition to the surgeons fee, there is also an anesthesia fee, and fees for time spent in the surgery location and recovery room, along with pre- and post-operation visits. These should all be included in the initial estimate. If none of them sounds like anything you would be prepared to forgo, then you understand the reason for the high nose job cost.
The best way to handle that cost is to make sure that this is the only nose surgery you are ever going to need. That means choosing the most experienced rhinoplasty surgeon you can find to do the work, someone with decades of experience, a gallery of nose job before and after photos, more than one board certification and many glowing testimonials from customers. The best rhinoplasty surgeons are those who are often asked to perform revision rhinoplasty.
There are many goals a Charlotte rhinoplasty patient may have in mind. The most common request is to make the nose smaller — either at a hump on the bridge of the nose, the tip of the nose, the width of the nose, or all of the above. Only the top third of the bridge is made of nasal bone, so an operation on the bridge will most likely involve working on cartilage. In such cases, the skin on the nose needs to shrink slightly in order to fit the new nose.
In some cases — if the nose is underdeveloped, or if a previous surgery has left it too small — the purpose is to make the nose bigger. This may involve using bone or cartilage transplanted from elsewhere on the body.
