Rhinoplasty or nose plastic surgery involves reshaping the nose in order to reduce its size, remove a hump on the bridge, narrow or otherwise alter the look of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Rhinoplasty or nose plastic surgery is a cosmetic procedure that affects the outward appearance of the nose.
Septoplasty, which can be performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty, seeks to correct septal abnormalities inside the nose that can result in difficulty breathing. This is often used to fix a deviated septum or as a corrective surgery following a broken nose or other injury. As this is often performed to correct nasal airway obstruction, it is often covered by insurance.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty Cost?
The cost of a rhinoplasty or nose plastic surgery is usually between $6,500 to $8,000, depending on the scope of the procedure. This can be combined with a septoplasty which is often covered by medical insurance. This estimate includes the cost of the surgeon’s services, the operating room, and anesthesia. Insurance may apply, so make sure to check with your provider.
