Has the size or shape of your nose always bothered you? Or perhaps you have a functional issue with it that’s been causing you discomfort?
Rhinoplasty could be the ideal cosmetic procedure for you. A popular option around the world since its creation, it’s designed to reshape or remove the bone/cartilage within your nose.
How Much Is Rhinoplasty Surgery?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeon’s 2018 statistics, the average cost of rhinoplasty surgery is $5,350. Of course, there are certain factors that influence this price, meaning that it can cost up to $8,000 in some circumstances.
To calculate the true cost of the surgery, it’s a good idea to request a consultation with Dr Schalit. However, to give you a brief insight, the overall cost of a rhinoplasty procedure will include:
- Medical tests
- The surgeon’s fee
- Where the practice is based
- The extent of the procedure
- Any garments required post-surgery
- Hospital/facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Post-surgery medication prescriptions
At our surgery, we offer financial plans to help spread the cost for our patients. Not only this, but Dr Schalit has years of experience in cosmetic surgery and is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery – giving each patient the peace of mind that they are in good hands from start to finish.
One of the most common questions we get is whether rhinoplasty is covered by health insurance. And while it typically won’t be covered if it’s for cosmetic purposes, when it’s performed to improve functionality, it may be covered by it under certain providers.

Am I a Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
One of the first things you may wonder surrounding rhinoplasty surgery, is whether you’re an ideal candidate for it.
And while Dr. Schalit will discuss this with you upon your consultation in more detail, you are typically considered a good candidate for this procedure if you are bothered by the shape or size of your nose. Helping you to achieve your dream nose and giving you a boost in confidence, it can have a huge impact on your everyday life.
You’re also a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you have trouble with breathing that’s caused by a blockage (or another issue that’s listed above) with your nasal passages. To be eligible for the procedure, you should be physically healthy, over the age of 15 years old and a nonsmoker.
“Almost two years ago, on April 5th 2017, I FINALLY was able to afford to get my rhinoplasty. I had broken my nose when I was 8 years old and got bullied for it for a long, long time. For the almost decade that I had that broken looking nose, I was never really happy with the way I looked no matter what I wore, no matter how I changed my hair, or how much makeup I had on. My nose always got in the way of how I saw myself and how I let others see me. I hated it completely. I had zero confidence. My mom was finally able to afford the rhinoplasty, and after the consultation they made me an appointment immediately. I couldn’t believe just how quick they got me in. The day of my surgery, I was excited as ever, and the nurses, anesthesiologist, and of course Dr. Schalit were all so caring and helped ease any anxiety I may have had. I am completely ecstatic with my experience at Florida Oral & Facial with Dr.Schalit. He did an amazing job, he fixed my nose, made it look normal again. I have confidence now, and don’t hate how I look. You can definitely trust him if you’re needing or wanting anything done. He did an absolutely incredible job, and I am so beyond happy with the results. It’s the best decision I have ever made, 100%.” *
