A “straightforward” nose job may involve shaving down a bump on top or refining the tip of your nose. On the other hand, a more complicated nose job may be necessary if you want improvement in breathing or correction of complications associated with a previous nose job.
Revisions may require taking cartilage from the ear or even rib cartilage. Sometimes you can avoid taking cartilage and use a sterile nasal implant instead. Below, you’ll find the nose job cost specifically for a first-time straightforward nose job.
Surgeon’s Fee: $5445
OR/Anesthesia Fees: $1900
Cosmetic Insurance: $300
Medications (during and after surgery): $130
The estimate above is based on 2 hours of operating room time in a San Francisco-based in-office operating room. If the procedure takes longer, it may cost more. To find a board certified plastic surgeon near you and to determine how much they charge for the procedure, click here.
Lastly, when it comes to a revision nose job, the patient needs to understand how difficult it is to “hit a home run” in even the most skilled of hands. So don’t be surprised if your plastic surgeon tries to lower your expectations in the hopes that they will under-promise and over deliver.
