Rhinoplasty and its cost
According to realself.com, the average cost of rhinoplasty in Charlotte, NC is $6,700, but it ranges from $4,000 to $10,000. Admittedly, this is too broad a price range to be much help in financial planning. The reason for this is that there are many different kinds of nose surgery covered in the category of rhinoplasty, some of which take a lot more skill and effort than others. So how much your rhinoplasty costs will depend on what kind of work and how much work you need done.
The cost of rhinoplasty includes several different expenses, all of which should be in the initial estimate. There’s the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesia fee and the fees for time spent in the surgery location and recovery room, plus the pre- and post-operation visits. None of these is anything you’d want to skimp on.
Make sure you don’t need to do it twice
The bad news is that unless it is done for medical reasons it is unlikely to be covered by insurance. This doesn’t mean you should look for the cheapest rhinoplasty you can find, either at home or (especially) abroad. The cheapest cosmetic surgery in the United States that you might be able to trust would be at a teaching hospital, where the students would work on your face as practice. The cheapest surgery overseas is in countries with very little malpractice protection.
The best way to save money on rhinoplasty is to make sure you’ll only ever have to do it once. This means knowing exactly what you want and why. The more specific an idea you have of the necessary change, the more likely you are to be satisfied with the outcome, so be prepared for a long talk with your surgeon. The best rhinoplasty surgeons are those who do a lot of revision rhinoplasty. They know what can go wrong, and must fix the mistakes of other surgeons. Do everything you can to keep your nose safe during the recovery period. With a ninety percent satisfaction rate and only one in thirty operations needing to be redone, the odds are in your favor.
