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.
