Why rhinoplasty costs so much and what to do about it
A number of factors are involved in the cost of rhinoplasty. The fee the surgeon charges is one factor, but there’s also an fee for the anesthesiologist and the anesthesia. Then there are the fees for time spent in the surgery location and recovery room, along with pre- and post-operation visits. (Take a moment to ask if any of these things sounds like something you want to get the cheapest possible deal on.) All these fees should all be included in the initial estimate.
The best way to deal with the cost of rhinoplasty is to make sure you only need to have it done once. This starts in the mind — beginning by knowing exactly what you want and examining your own reasons for having this done. This is the sort of self-analysis that you shouldn’t try to do by yourself. Talk with your surgeon instead. He or she has talked with a lot of patients, and is likely to be able to understand your case better than you can imagine.
Look for a surgeon who does a lot of revision rhinoplasty. The surgeons who correct the mistakes of others are the surgeons who can most be counted on not to make any mistakes of their own. And be sure to take whatever precautions are necessary to keep your nose safe during the recovery period.
