Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Surgery Cost?
Rhinoplasty can make a huge difference to facial harmony and this makes it one of the most sought after forms of cosmetic surgery. When you first consult a plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty, they will give you information about all its aspects, including a cost estimate.
It is vital that you consider all potential benefits from the procedure, the quality standards of the surgeon’s practice and the costs before deciding to go ahead with the surgery.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides rhinoplasty (nose job) to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding communities.
What Factors Affect the Cost of Rhinoplasty?
The cost of rhinoplasty may differ across practices, or even across different patients at the same practice due to the following factors:
Location of the Practice
The living cost in a region generally influences the cost of all goods and services available there. This applies to cosmetic procedures, too. Cosmetic surgery practices in coastal or major urban areas incur greater real estate costs and overheads compared to similar practices in small towns in interior regions. So, the location of the practice is a major factor that determines the cost of rhinoplasty.
Extent of Surgery You Require
Rhinoplasty procedures that require complicated procedures involving implants, cartilage or bone grafts or major reconstruction will be more expensive than simpler surgical techniques. Ethnic rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty, which are more intricate procedures, will also cost more than minor cosmetic changes such as removal of a bump or improvement of the nose tip.
You must also factor in related expenses of diagnostic tests, prescription medication and post-surgical appointments. The cost of these will be greater in more extensive or intricate types of surgery.
Operating Room Costs
Nose surgery may be performed in a private surgical suite, a hospital or an accredited surgery center. The cost of the operating room will vary across these. When you have to choose where to get your surgery done, make sure you pick the facility that is equipped with the latest technology, surgical equipment, and an experienced support team.
A procedure that uses open rhinoplasty will require a general anesthetic. A registered nurse anesthetist or an anesthesiologist has to be present throughout the surgery, and the fee they charge will vary based on their qualifications and experience.
The surgeon’s fee forms a significant part of the cost of nose cosmetic surgery. It can vary from one surgeon to another based on their experience and skill. When you choose a surgeon, make sure you pick one who follows the best practices, the latest safety protocols and high quality standards and who uses innovative surgical procedures that are less invasive.
How to Finance Your Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is considered a form of cosmetic surgery for aesthetic purpose and is generally not covered under insurance health plans. However, several medical care finance companies provide loans at competitive rates for those who choose to undergo elective plastic surgery.
Make sure you check their terms and conditions to find the loan that works best for you. Plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for nose job.
