Certain features contribute notably to a balanced appearance. That’s why the nose, with such a prominent position on the face, is one of our most important features. When it’s out of proportion, has an unusual shape, or a significant bump on the bridge, it can really damage our self-confidence and create insecurities. Longwood Plastic Surgery can resolve these nose imperfections with rhinoplasty.

How Does Rhinoplasty Work?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a complex procedure and every case is unique to the patient. Rhinoplasty can change both the appearance and function of your nose for better breathing or an improvement to facial harmony and balance. The delicate bone, cartilage, and skin of the nose is preserved through incisions on the inside wherever possible, which minimizes bruising, swelling, and scarring, and improves recovery times. Because these tissues are so delicate, you want a skilled plastic surgeon with extensive experience and a talent for facial sculpting to ensure your nose is everything you want it to be when fully healed.

Rhinoplasty may also be necessary to restore function, addressing problems such as obstructive disorders like a deviated septum, a congenitally misshapen nose that impairs function, or chronic stuffiness, post-nasal drip, or severe snoring. Any of these may interfere with your health and quality of life, so it’s possible a portion or all of the cost of their correction through rhinoplasty will be covered by insurance. Longwood Plastic Surgery surgeons will thoroughly examine your needs for a rhinoplasty to help determine the possibility and extent of medical coverage.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Unlike many cosmetic procedures, candidacy for rhinoplasty isn’t generally restricted by age. Ideal candidates are in good health and understand what rhinoplasty can accomplish in terms of their goals. A consultation at Longwood Plastic Surgery is a great place to start.

How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?

Unless your nose has suffered trauma or a functionality repair is required, most insurance companies consider rhinoplasty or reconstructive rhinoplasty (the correction of a previously failed procedure) to be cosmetic and don’t cover the expenses involved in the procedure. Each patient is highly unique and requires variations to their rhinoplasty that can vastly affect the price of the procedure. Your geographical location and surgeon’s skill can also play a role in procedure cost.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the 2019 average cost of rhinoplasty was $5,409, with a wide range from $3,000 to $15,000. Rhinoplasties for more straightforward corrections are on the lower side of the range, while revision rhinoplasties account for the upper range. There may also be smaller fees for medical testing, lab work, prescriptions, and follow-up treatment if necessary. While these generally don’t add significantly to the cost, they shouldn’t be overlooked in the overall treatment plan.

The biggest factors affecting the cost of your rhinoplasty are the surgeon’s fees, anesthesiology fees, and operating facility fees. Because rhinoplasties at Longwood Plastic Surgery are performed in our accredited outpatient surgery suite in Brookline with a full staff of anesthesiology and nursing providers, we can price all of our procedures extremely competitively while still maintaining superb safety and comfort measures for our patients.

I was recommended to Dr. Morris through my doctor at BID-Needham. Due to prior surgeries, I had some issues and Dr. Morris is the best. He has done a fantastic job with my abdomen core and I feel and look fantastic.
