Rhinoplasty is the most requested plastic surgery procedure for people 34 or younger, and one of the first questions they ask concerns the cost of a nose job. Rhinoplasty prices at our Scottsdale practice range from $11,000 to $15,000.* The cost ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 for patients getting secondary or revision rhinoplasty.*
In this blog post, we’ll explore what’s included in the cost of rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty and explain why you may pay more or less for the procedure.
Factors Influencing the Price of Rhinoplasty
When comparing the cost of rhinoplasty surgery at different practices, it’s important to understand what affects the pricing and what the cost estimate includes. Factors that can influence the cost of rhinoplasty include the:
- Training and experience of the surgeon: Rhinoplasty is typically considered the most complicated facial cosmetic surgery procedure. It’s essential to have a rhinoplasty expert perform the procedure to avoid having to undergo revision rhinoplasty. A double board-certified facial plastic surgeon whose experience and training are focused exclusively on facial plastic surgery has a level of expertise that general plastic surgeons cannot match.
- Technique used: Facial plastic surgeons perform both open and closed rhinoplasty. The best type of rhinoplasty depends on the patient’s cosmetic concerns and whether the procedure is a primary or revision rhinoplasty.
- Type of anesthesia: Plastic surgeons may use a general anesthetic with a board-certified physician anesthesiologist or a local anesthetic with intravenous sedation.
- Time in the operating room: A more extensive procedure or one that’s combined with other procedures requires more time in our AAAHC-accredited surgical center.
- Choice to combine a nose job with other procedures: Rhinoplasty patients often combine rhinoplasty with other facial contouring procedures, such as chin augmentation or facial liposuction.
Rhinoplasty vs. Revision Rhinoplasty
The cost of rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty can differ significantly. Patients seek revision rhinoplasty if they’re not happy with the results of a nose job performed by another surgeon or if they’ve suffered an injury to their nose after having rhinoplasty. You can learn more about why people consider revision rhinoplasty surgery in an earlier blog post.
Revision rhinoplasty involves techniques usually not needed for a first-time rhinoplasty patient. The presence of scar tissue and the need for cartilage grafting requires exceptional surgical skills to create the desired results. These challenges cause the cost of revision rhinoplasty to be higher than that of a primary nose job.
Getting Rhinoplasty in Scottsdale
The location of a plastic surgery practice also influences the cost of rhinoplasty. You’ll generally pay more for a nose job in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles than in many other areas of the country. People considering facial plastic surgery in Los Angeles often travel to the Scottsdale-Phoenix area for rhinoplasty surgery at our practice.
