Rhinoplasty or a nose job is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. A rhinoplasty can improve the shape of the nose to create a nose that “fits” the face. It can also significantly improve breathing through the nose in patients that have nasal obstruction. As with many products and services, people need to know the financials to plan accordingly.
What are the factors that go into the cost of a rhinoplasty?
A team of healthcare professionals and supplies are utilized during the process of undergoing a rhinoplasty. There are 3 main components of the price of a rhinoplasty:
1) Facility Fee
2) Anesthesia Fee
3) Surgeon’s Fee
What is the facility fee?
If I was undergoing a nosejob in Charlotte, I would want to have the procedure done at a clean, safe, warm, and comfortable environment or facility. That facility must be paid for the services they provide during the surgery. The facility can be a hospital, surgery center, or an office. This fee is used to pay the staff, supplies, and equipment of the facility. Additionally, fee covers the facility’s overhead including rent, utilities, cleaning staff, and other expenses.
What is the anesthesia fee?
I take great efforts to ensure my patients have a smooth surgery and post-surgery experience. To undergo a nosejob, a patient will need to be placed asleep and given medications to treat pain, prevent infection, and prevent nausea after the surgery. The anesthesia fee is used to cover the costs the medical personal giving the anesthesia (anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist) and all their supplies. Their supplies include medications and equipment that they use during your procedure.
What is surgeon’s fee account?
This fee covers the expenses it takes to run a successful facial plastic surgery practice. That fee is covers all of the appointments you have with the doctor before and after the procedures. It will typically entail 2-3 appointments before surgery and at least 5 appointments for the first year after surgery. It covers the time that the surgeon takes to perform the surgery. The surgery can vary from 2.5 to 7.5 hours. This entails approximately 16 hours of the surgeons time (plus or minus a few hours).
This fee is used cover the overhead of a medical practice to pay staff, supplies to care for patients, electricity, rent, and other costs. There are many other costs that are covered from the surgeon’s fee that do not go directly to your doctor.
What is the main variable that will determine the range in the cost?
The simple answer is complexity. A more complex nose will take more time and energy to create a great result. The longer the surgery, the more time a patient will need anesthesia, the facility, and the facial plastic surgeon.
A revision rhinoplasty can also increase the cost of the surgery as it increases the complexity of the surgery.
