On average, rhinoplasty surgery would cost about $6,000-$12,000, depending on the amount of surgery required. Also whether it is a primary or secondary rhinoplasty will affect the cost as will the fact that it is closed or an open rhinoplasty.
Unlike a rhinoplasty done for aesthetic reasons, if the procedure were performed for medical reasons your medical insurance company would cover the cost. While the cost of rhinoplasty is an important factor in an individual’s decision to have the procedure, it should not be the guiding factor. It is not necessary that the most expensive surgeon is the best to go with or that the cheapest deal is better. It is important that you focus on the surgeon’s experience and qualification before selecting the right surgeon. You would want to select a surgeon who informs you of all aspects of rhinoplasty including the risk of complications that may be involved. At Dr. Pasquale’s clinic it is ensured that clients understand the procedure they are opting for and are provided all the details. Furthermore it is made certain the patient has realistic expectations of the surgery and that it is done in keeping with the natural facial features of the person.
Understanding the Cost of Rhinoplasty
To understand the rhinoplasty cost it is first important to briefly understand what the surgery entails. Rhinoplasty is a relatively safe plastic surgery procedure that is performed under anesthesia by a plastic or cosmetic surgeon. It requires pre and postoperative care. The procedure involves making incisions to remove the skin from the bone and reshaping the bone and cartilage to get the desired shape and then replacing the skin. The incision may be made inside the nostril or in case of an ‘open technique’ at the base of the nose. A splint is used to support the nose and bandages applied. Post operative care is crucial in avoiding risk of complications from the surgery.
Cost of rhinoplasty would include the following:
- Surgeon’s fees
- Anesthesiologist’s fees
- Cost of operating room
- Pre and post operative care
- Laboratory costs
- Cost of nursing
Cosmetic and plastic surgery offers individuals a chance to reshape parts of their body to look more appealing and attractive. One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures is rhinoplasty or nose reshaping. It can be performed for functional reasons as well as purely aesthetic ones. Like all plastic surgeries rhinoplasty also comes with a price, albeit a small one for acquiring a shape of the nose that you desire. Rhinoplasty is performed in various parts of the country but Honolulu, Hawaii is the top destination for people who want to have this surgery done. The cost of rhinoplasty varies from region to region and is also dependent on the surgeon. Honolulu, Hawaii is no different in this aspect.

Furthermore he has done a 2-year training certificate in the sub-specialty of cosmetic surgery from NYU Downtown, Manhattan. He is also an osteopathic physician and surgeon (D.O.).
