Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Cost
The cost of rhinoplasty depends largely on a surgeon's experience and the geographic location of their practice. The cost factors to consider are the surgeon's fee, the fee of the surgical facility, the price of anesthesia, pre-op and post-op medical testing, and drug prescriptions needed after surgery.
Overall, rhinoplasty can run from $3,000 to upwards of $10,000. The average surgeon's fee in 2010 was $4,306. If rhinoplasty is performed for purely cosmetic purposes, the costs are not covered by insurance.
How to get rhinoplasty (nose job): Seek a surgeon who has extensive experience with ear, nose, throat, and facial cosmetic surgery and who is board certified. Because the ears, nose, and throat are all connected, it is best to consult a surgeon who understands all three. Pain medication will be required in the days and possibly weeks after surgery.
