Plastic surgery for your nose, also referred to as rhinoplasty, is a great option for patients who want to reform the shape of their nose. If you are considering a nose job, you’ll need to meet with the doctors at Boulder Plastic Surgery to assess your options. They’ll work with you to determine how to combine your post-surgical expectations with the realities of what can be done. Everyone has a different idea of what they feel is attractive, and we want to to help reshape your nose to fit into your own natural facial features and enhance your beauty.
The doctors at Boulder Plastic Surgery can reshape your nose if you are unhappy with any bumps, asymmetry, or disproportionate shapes of the bridge or tip; they can also reshape the nostril area. Additionally, plastic surgery can be performed on the nose to improve both aesthetic appearance and breathing function due to structural abnormalities of the nasal passages.
Ideal candidates for a nose job are over the age of 13 (when facial features have finished growing), are in good physical health, and do not smoke. These parameters promote ideal results and optimal healing.
How Much Does a Nose Job Cost?
A nose job at Boulder Plastic Surgery costs between $6,500 and $8,000, depending on your individual needs, and includes all surgical and anesthesia fees. However, plastic surgery for the nose may be covered by your insurance if you are correcting a structural deformity that impairs your breathing, or if you are correcting the results of an injury. Be sure to consult your insurance company to see what kind of coverage can be applied to your individual surgery.
Recovery from Nasal Plastic Surgery
The surgery itself only takes about an hour or two, but you will have to take it easy for a little while to promote optimal healing. You’ll have to stay home from work for about a week while the initial swelling and drainage of the nose goes down. Bruising and swelling will be apparent for about a month, and you can start light exercise about 3 weeks after surgery. Your doctor will meet with you throughout the first year after surgery to monitor your healing.
