The cost or price of a nose job or rhinoplasty varies significantly throughout Southern California, especially. A rhinoplasty or cosmetic nasal surgery is often performed by Los Angeles Plastic Surgeons who specialize in Facial Plastic Surgery. Their fees diverge depending on their geographic location, expertise and experience, type and extent of nose surgery, as well as if the procedure is a primary or a revision rhinoplasty.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery in 2008 the national average fee that plastic surgeons charged for a rhinoplasty or nose surgery procedure was $4,197. There are additional fees for rhinoplasty which include, anesthesiologist fees (>$1000), and surgical center fees (>$2,300). This brings the average national total fee for rhinoplasty to $ 7,500. Obviously, the exact price of a nose job can vary from approximately $7,000 to $14,000 depending on the factors described above, as well as if there are additional procedures that are performed at the same time.
For example, some of the adjunct procedures that may be performed with a cosmetic nose surgery include nasal airway or sinus surgery. These procedures may consist of septoplasty, turbinectomy, and sinus endoscopy. The general goal of these additional procedures is to improve nasal breathing. Obviously, these extra procedures would raise the overall cost of nose surgery.
One of the most important factors that affect the cost of rhinoplasty is the extent and complexity of the nose surgery. For example a rhinoplasty to repair a traumatic nasal deformity would cost more than that of a simple and straight forward reduction of a nasal hump! Considering this, most patients always tend to underestimate the extent of work that their nose surgery might require.
Finally, the overall cost of nose surgery can depend on the method of payment! If you are financing your nose job or rhinoplasty there are most likely additional financing costs. Who finances your cosmetic surgery can make a big difference. Are you paying for your nose job with a credit card or with a loan from a plastic surgery financing company? Compare the rates that plastic surgery financing companies charge to loan you money.
Despite these, always remember: A good nose job is always cheaper than a bad one, no matter how much it costs!
