Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

Nose surgery to improve an obstructed airway requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing. Correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, is achieved by adjusting the nasal structure to produce better alignment.

The decision to have nose surgery is extremely personal and you’ll have to decide if the benefits will fulfill your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.

Your plastic surgeon and/or staff will explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure you will undergo and any risks or potential complications.

Nose Surgery Risks

  • Rupture of small surface vessels of the nose
  • Infection
  • Poor wound healing
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding (hematoma)
  • Nose asymmetry
  • Cardiac and pulmonary complications or blood clots in the venous system
  • Change in skin sensation (numbness)
  • Nasal airway alterations may occur after a rhinoplasty or septoplasty that may interfere with normal passage of air through the nose
  • Nasal septal perforation (a hole in the nasal septum) may develop but is rare
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Skin contour irregularities
  • Skin discoloration and swelling
  • Sutures may spontaneously surface through the skin, become visible or produce irritation that require removal
  • Possibility of revisional surgery

Nse Surgery Costs

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average surgeon's fee for nose surgery was $3,833 in 2007.   The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery lists an average surgeon's fee of $4,357 for rhinoplasty in 2007.   (The average fee information was based on surveys of the organizations' members. Please note that the average fee information may be more applicable to cosmetic nose surgery than for reconstructive procedures.)

The surgeon's fee does not include the cost of the operating facility, such as a surgical center or hospital, nor does it include the cost of anesthesia or any medications you might be required to purchase.   You can also expect some cost variations if you are having both reconstructive nose surgery and cosmetic nose surgery done at the same time. Just remember, choose a surgeon based on skills, reputation, experience and training and not just on the lowest cost.
