Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as ‘nose job’, is a surgical procedure that can enhance the appearance of the nose and improve its function. Men and women who are considering this surgery should have an understanding of what the procedure can do for them. Although cost shouldn’t necessarily be the most important deciding factor, it is a good idea to have an understanding of your financial obligations beforehand.
Top Rhinoplasty Expenses
Unsurprisingly, the top three expenses involved in a rhinoplasty procedure are directly related to day-of surgical costs. While there are other costs to consider, this is where most of your budget will go.
The following expenses will contribute to the majority of your rhinoplasty bill:
- Surgeon’s Fee: Your surgeon’s skill and experience are directly correlated to the price you’ll end up paying. A board-certified surgeon will likely charge much more than a surgeon who is just beginning their career.
- Anesthesia: General anesthesia requires careful monitoring throughout your surgery. Your anesthesiologist bills their services at an hourly rate.
- Hospital/Facility Expenses: Again, these expenses are typically billed on a per-hour basis, thus time-consuming rhinoplasties are more costly.
Each rhinoplasty surgery is entirely different. Not only is the end result unique to your goals, but the cost of your procedure can also vary. While one person may be able to get the results they want with $5,000, another patient might have a price tag closer to $15,000. The only real way to know how much your specific surgery will cost is by speaking to an expert during an in-person consultation.
What Other Costs Should I Consider?
There are several pre and post-surgical expenses to be aware of. These costs can include everything from prescription medications, medical exams, bloodwork, and follow-up visits. When getting a quote from your surgeon, be sure to ask which expenses are included and which are billed separately to avoid any surprises.

Is Rhinoplasty Covered By Insurance?
In most cases, rhinoplasty surgery is not covered by your insurance. If your surgery is being done to correct a breathing problem or a defect caused by disease or injury, you may qualify for coverage. Speak with your provider directly for more information.
What About Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision rhinoplasties are much more complex and generally have a higher price tag. Your secondary surgery might cost you twice as much as your initial procedure. That’s why it is so important to choose a skilled, board-certified surgeon who routinely performs rhinoplasty procedures.
When done correctly, a rhinoplasty procedure can last a lifetime. The surgeons at Specialty Aesthetic Surgery are committed to providing exceptional patient-centric care at competitive rates. They’ll work with you to meet your short and long-term goals.
“I had a positive experience there. Dr. Mashkevich focused on what I wanted to achieve doing the rhinoplasty. As a result, I satisfy with the outcome of the surgery and would highly recommend him to friends/colleagues. In addition to the rhinoplasty, he removed a mole from my chick (0.5 mm). After two months, the scar is almost not noticeable!!! It’s a miracle! The doctor and his team are experts in what they do! Thank you! ” *
