Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery)
Rhinoplasty, popularly known as a nose job, is an intricate facial plastic surgery procedure designed to enhance the shape and size of the nose in proportion to the rest of the face. Cost of rhinoplasty is an important concern for most patients seeking this elective procedure. During the first appointment, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of the surgery, including its estimated expenditures.
For an experienced plastic surgeon, the first concern is to educate the patient about all aspects of the surgery and help them make an informed decision. Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center is a premier practice providing rhinoplasty to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and other locations.
Different practices may charge differently for a plastic surgery procedure such as rhinoplasty. Sometimes the cost may differ even between two patients at the same practice. The following factors will go into determining the actual sticker price of a nose job:
Location of the Practice
Prime urban centers and cities located on the West and East Coasts usually have a higher cost of living as compared to the costs in smaller cities and interior regions. The average living costs are affected by the median household income, real estate costs, employment scenario, taxation and other local factors. This will have an impact on the price of most goods and services in a particular area, including cosmetic surgery services.
Fee of the Surgeon
The fee charged by a plastic surgeon will typically vary according to their certifications, experience and reputation in the field of facial surgeries, including rhinoplasty. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, patients should select the right surgeon for their needs, and treat aspects such as the surgeon’s fee only as secondary considerations.
Anesthesia and Operating Facility Costs
The surgeon may perform the rhinoplasty procedure at a hospital, an ambulatory surgical center or a private surgical cost. The monetary amount will vary in each case, and will influence the overall sticker price of rhinoplasty. If general anesthesia is used, the fee of an anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse will vary according to their qualifications and experience.
Extent of Surgery
Some patients may require minor aesthetic improvements such as the removal of a nose bump or refining of the nasal tip. On the other hand, a patient may need to undergo a reduction or augmentation rhinoplasty, a major reconstructive rhinoplasty, an ethnic rhinoplasty, or a complex nose revision procedure.
These procedures can involve grafting of the cartilage and bone, placement of implants, and correction of functional anomalies. The costs can vary depending on the length and complexity of the surgery. MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas for rhinoplasty.
Insurance and Financing
Health insurance coverage may be available in exceptional cases where significant functional corrections of the nose are involved. In other cases, most patients will be eligible for various low interest financing options to pay for the procedure in convenient monthly installments.
