When you look in the mirror, are you unhappy with your reflection?
If you dream of a small button nose, rhinoplasty may offer the perfect solution. But how much does rhinoplasty cost in California?
While the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates the average rhinoplasty cost to be $5,483, that number is deceiving as it doesn’t cover everything. Here we explain some of the other costs you can expect with your rhinoplasty procedure.
What Costs Do You Need to Consider?
While these five different factors contribute to your total rhinoplasty costs, other factors, such as location, can affect how much your new nose will cost.
The average cost mentioned above refers to the price that the surgeon will charge for your rhinoplasty. However, this is only one portion of your rhinoplasty costs. Other fees that you can expect to include in your budget are:
- Anesthesia – The cost of anesthesia will depend on the type of anesthesia and how long the procedure will take.
- Facility – This fee comes from the location of your procedure.
- Pre-Operative Costs – Blood tests, physicals, electrocardiograms, or other pre-operative testing are necessary before your procedure and the costs of these tests are additional.
- Post-Operative Costs – Post-op costs can include medications or follow-up appointments.
What Factors Affect the Cost of Rhinoplasty?
Many different factors can affect how high or low your costs may be. For example, surgeon’s fees can vary based on the level of experience and your geographical location. The facility fee will depend on where your surgeon performs your rhinoplasty procedure. Hospital operating rooms are likely to cost more than a private surgical suite in the surgeon’s office. Pre-op procedures, such as physicals or blood work may be covered by your insurance.
