Why are nose jobs so expensive?
The cost of a rhinoplasty is determined by a number of factors, including the surgery’s complexity, whether or not earlier surgery was conducted (revision rhinoplasty), and whether or not other areas must be operated on to get cartilage or tissue grafts. Furthermore, the cost of surgery might be influenced by where you live. It should come as no surprise that rhinoplasty in higher-cost-of-living places is more expensive than in lower-cost-of-living areas. In my Portland practice, primary rhinoplasty starts at roughly $12,000. This total covers all preoperative and postoperative appointments, as well as surgery, anesthesia, and operating room expenditures. When looking for a surgeon to perform your rhinoplasty, one potential pitfall is to go with the cheapest choice, as surgeons with the lowest prices frequently have a rhinoplasty operation volume or experience that is consistent with their prices.
Because rhinoplasty is widely recognized as the most difficult of all plastic surgery procedures, going to someone with minimal experience can result in a greater rate of revision surgery. Finally, if you need multiple procedures to acquire the nose you want, the overall cost may be significantly more than if you prioritized experience above affordability at the outset.
What is included in the price of rhinoplasty?
With all of the many techniques discussed, you might be asking what exactly a rhinoplasty procedure costs. The ‘average cost’ of a procedure is usually determined by the cost of the surgeon who performs the treatment. It’s not a perfect analogy, but think of it as your provider’s hourly rate. Remember that, in addition to their own pay, your provider has company expenses such as rent, personnel, insurance, and supplies. As more variables are introduced, the total cost of the method begins to rise.
The other medical personnel present during your procedure (anesthesiologist, nurses, surgical assistants), the various tools and medical supplies used during your procedure (needles, gauze, gowns, gloves, etc. ), the cost of nose job medications used during your procedure and the cost of using the hospital or facility’s operating or procedure room.
