Are you displeased with the appearance of your nose? If so, you may benefit from a rhinoplasty or nose job. During this procedure, Dr. Schalit can reshape your nose so that it becomes more aesthetically pleasing. Once patients learn they are good candidates for a rhinoplasty, one of the first questions they ask is, “How much does a nose job cost?” Below, we’ll explore the answer.
Nose job costs vary widely and depend on the details of each patient’s unique surgery. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons stated that the average cost of rhinoplasty was $5,350 in 2018, not including anesthesia, operating room fees, or other related expenses.
If you receive a nose job because you don’t like the way your nose looks, you’ll be on the hook for paying for it as insurance will consider it to be a cosmetic procedure. In the event your nose job is performed to resolve breathing or another deformity that was caused by an injury, your insurance company may reimburse the cost.
Dr. Schalit can work with you to design a payment plan that comfortably aligns with your budget and lifestyle if your insurance company will not cover your nose job.
A functional rhinoplasty involves repairing your nostrils and any defects that block your airway to make it easier for you to breathe. A cosmetic rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is specifically designed to improve the way you look. During this type of rhinoplasty, Dr. Schalit will focus on making your nose more proportional to your other facial features.
Good Candidates for a Nose Job
If you are a healthy man or woman who hopes to alter the size or shape of your nose, you may be a good candidate for a nose job. A nose job may also be right for you if you are living with breathing difficulties or birth defects.
Patients trust Dr. Schalit with a nose job because they believe their nose is too large or wide, too small, bent, crooked, or broken. They may also opt for a nose job if their nostrils are too small or too wide.
Dr. Schalit does not recommend nose jobs to patients under the age of 15 because their noses are still in the development phase.
