Rhinoplasty is an intricate cosmetic surgery procedure, which should only be performed by a fully trained and experienced nose surgeon. During the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will discuss about all aspects of nose surgery, including its estimated costs.
The surgeon’s first goal will be to educate the patient about rhinoplasty and help them make a well-considered decision. The wonderful and dependable board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jacob Bloom provides rhinoplasty and various other surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures to patients in Chicago, IL, and surrounding locations.
Factors Affecting the Costs
Nose surgery financial factors can differ between two practices and even between two patients at the same practice due to a number of factors.
Where the practice is located will be a significant difference to the costs of rhinoplasty because of the varying costs of living at different locations. A practice located in main metropolitan area and prime urban centers will usually have higher real estate costs and other overheads than a practice in a small town in an interior region. This difference will reflect in the average prices of most types of goods and services, including plastic surgery procedures.
Fee Charged by the Surgeon
One of the key cost components in rhinoplasty is the surgeon’s fee, which can vary according to the qualifications and experience of the surgeon. Patients should ideally select a board certified plastic surgeon because they would invest in high quality standards and best practices, adopt the latest nose surgery techniques and technology, pursue continuing education and follow the latest safety protocols.
Cost of the Surgical Facility
Rhinoplasty may be performed at a hospital, an accredited surgical center or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits associated with each option will vary. A surgical facility that offers state of the art equipment and technology, has highly trained support staff and provides personalized care and services is likely to cost more, but is also likely to deliver superior care and better results.
If rhinoplasty is performed with the patient under general anesthesia, it will involve the services of an anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse. Their fee will vary according to their skills and experience, and they may charge on a per hour basis. They will usually be present throughout the procedure in the operating room to monitor the patient’s response.
Extent of Surgery
Some patients may go through a more complicated nose surgery, which may involve cartilage or bone grafting, synthetic implants, or major nose reconstruction. Functional improvements to the nose may be required in some cases along with cosmetic changes. If the patient is seeking revision rhinoplasty or ethnic rhinoplasty, the costs may vary depending on the intricacies involved.
Additional expenses involved in rhinoplasty surgery may include the costs of medical tests, prescription medications, and post-operative visits to the surgeon’s office. Patients should take all pre- and post-op expenses into account in order to have an accurate estimate of the overall dollar costs involved in rhinoplasty. Outstanding and judicious cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bloom receives patients from Chicago, IL, and other cities and communities in the Land of Lincoln State for nose surgery.
