The average cost of rhinoplasty is $4,694, according to 2014 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Rhinoplasty surgery costs can vary widely. The average fee referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
A surgeon’s fee will be based on his or her experience and geographic office location.
Rhinoplasty cost may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon’s fee
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for a rhinoplasty procedure, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
Rhinoplasty and health insurance coverage
When rhinoplasty is performed to improve breathing function, the cause is most commonly an obstructed airway.
This procedure, whether performed alone or in conjunction with cosmetic rhinoplasty, is considered reconstructive and may be covered by insurance.
This requires a detailed examination to verify the cause of your breathing impairment and prior authorization from your insurer.
