While no plastic surgery, procedure is “one size fits all”, this is especially true of rhinoplasty. Many factors make every nose surgery unique. For this reason, the cost of rhinoplasty can vary a great deal from one patient to another.
If you simply wish to correct a breathing abnormality or a relatively simple cosmetic problem, your nose surgery will cost less than if you need a correction of both functional and cosmetic issues.
The less complex your surgery, the lower the cost. For example, if you require cartilage grafts, which is typically used when building up a flat nose, the surgery will be more extensive. During your consultation, your surgeon will let you know what is required for your surgery and will provide you with a breakdown of the costs.

Is Rhinoplasty covered by insurance?
Functional rhinoplasty to correct breathing problems is covered by some insurance providers. Your surgery might also be covered if you have suffered an injury to your nose. You must check with your carrier first to determine if your surgery is included in your plan.
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is not covered by any insurance. If you are having a combination of functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty, your plan may cover the functional aspect of the surgery. Again, be sure to verify this with your provider.
Choose your surgeon carefully
Nose surgery is very intricate. If you opt for an inexpensive, inexperienced surgeon, there is a risk that your surgery will not turn out well. In that case, you might need a second procedure to correct mistakes, and you could end up spending a lot more in the end.
Revision rhinoplasty is usually more complex than primary rhinoplasty, because the initial surgery might have damaged the tissues.
Your nose is simply too important to choose a surgeon based solely on cost. Your surgery is an investment that will last a lifetime – so be sure to choose your surgeon well.
