How much does rhinoplasty cost?

The average cost of rhinoplasty is $5,350, according to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Rhinoplasty costs can widely vary. The average fee referenced above is only part of the total cost – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.

A surgeon's fee for rhinoplasty will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.

Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for rhinoplasty, so be sure to ask.

Rhinoplasty costs 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.

Is rhinoplasty covered by health insurance?

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.
