Consider the Cost of Your Rhinoplasty Cosmetic Surgery Options
There are many factors to consider when contemplating rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery. Depending on the type and severity of issues, your facial plastic surgeon may suggest nonsurgical nasal reshaping rather than surgical rhinoplasty. Before determining which procedure is best, it’s important to be fully aware of several components—how much downtime is involved, when will the results be visible and a question that many rhinoplasty seekers begin with: how much will it cost? Before we tackle the question of cost, let’s breakdown rhinoplasty options.
Which Rhinoplasty Cosmetic Surgery Option is Right For You?
Once upon a time, there were limited rhinoplasty options. Now, the story has changed, and cosmetic surgeons can offer nose procedure candidates more than one way to correct their nasal imperfections. Take a look at the difference between nonsurgical rhinoplasty (also referred to as nasal reshaping) and surgical rhinoplasty (commonly known as a nose job):
- Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty / Nasal Reshaping
- This option utilizes injectables to improve abnormalities, including asymmetry, deviations, bumps or depressions in the nose. Results are typically instantaneous with little to no downtime or side-effects involved.
- Surgical Rhinoplasty / Nose Job
- For more intricate issues to the nostrils, such as asymmetry, lack of proportion or upturned position, surgical rhinoplasty is the best option. Surgical rhinoplasty can also correct overall continuity of the nose as well as issues with the profile and bridge of the nose that can’t be improved through nasal reshaping. Unlike nonsurgical nasal reshaping, surgical rhinoplasty will require a few weeks of downtime, and full results may take longer to fully materialize.
What is the Cost of Rhinoplasty Cosmetic Surgery (Nonsurgical and Surgical?)
Unsurprising to most, the cost of rhinoplasty surgery is complicated. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of rhinoplasty in 2016 was $5,046. Other sources, however, reported a cost variation between $6,000 to $25,000 for rhinoplasty procedures in 2017. Why such a disparity in cost? The answer has much to do with surgeon skill level and geography. Different areas of the country demand different prices based on the average market value of cosmetic surgery services and how specialized the surgeon is in the particular procedure.
While people tend to believe that nonsurgical rhinoplasty costs less, this isn’t always true. The cost outcome will depend on the frequency and amount of injectables required to achieve a desired nasal-reshaping goal. Often, the cost for a nonsurgical and surgical rhinoplasty is similar.
