Can I Afford Rhinoplasty?
The cost of rhinoplasty (or a nose job) can vary according to several factors. While cosmetic procedures are often not covered by insurance providers, a rhinoplasty that is intended to improve breathing functionality may be covered since it is reconstructive in nature. In addition to your insurance, the following factors may influence the total amount you can expect to pay:
- Surgical facility
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments and medications
- Expertise of the surgeon
Although cost is often a major concern when considering a plastic surgeon, we stress the importance of not selecting a rhinoplasty specialist based on price alone. It is important that you seek a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who is experienced in performing nose surgery and can offer a wide variety of before-and-after pictures of previous patients’ results.
When you come in for a consultation with Dr. John Hilinski, you can learn about his extensive training and expertise on the procedure, as well as get a better understanding of how much you can expect to pay. Should you need financial assistance to make your rhinoplasty more affordable, we can help you apply for financing to make the surgery possible.
