How Much Does Revision Rhinoplasty Cost?
The Cost of a Non Surgical Procedure
When it comes to plastic and cosmetic surgery, there’s no doubt that cost can be a factor. Unlike other medical procedures, health insurance does not always cover the cost of elective procedures such as rhinoplasty, so it can fall to the patient to pay those bills. Most patients understand this dynamic going forward, and surgeons present all kind of financing options to help ensure patients get those final results they’re after. During any type of rhinoplasty procedure, whether it’s surgical or non surgical, the shape of the nose is altered, generally for aesthetic reasons but often for health reasons as well.
The cost of a typical, surgical rhinoplasty procedure generally runs into the thousands of dollars before considerations such as hospital costs and anesthesia. However, it’s possible for patients to become unhappy with the final results. In these cases, patients may often have to undergo a second procedure, called a revision rhinoplasty procedure, and the costs of that second procedure are also quite staggering. That said, the non surgical alternative, a non surgical revision rhinoplasty, can save patients considerable time as well as costs.
What is the Cost of a Revision Rhinoplasty?
We should make clear that there are significant variables in trying to determine how much a revision rhinoplasty procedure costs. It’s also possible, depending on the side effects and causes of the revision rhinoplasty, that health insurance will absorb some of the costs. Revision rhinoplasty costs can vary greatly based on the following:
- The complexity of the problems to be solved
- The desired final result
- Any required hospital stay
- Aesthetic vs. reconstructive purposes
- Any required anesthetic
- After care involved in rhinoplasty recovery
- Extended recovery associated with surgical rhinoplasty procedures
All of these elements, and more, can greatly impact the overall cost of surgical revision rhinoplasty. Add to that the overall variability of surgery costs from state to state and city to city, and it can become difficult to accurately predict the overall cost of a revision rhinoplasty procedure.
What is the Cost of a Non Surgical Revision Rhinoplasty?
In general, non surgical procedures carry with them far lower costs than surgical procedures. This is also typically true of non surgical revision rhinoplasty. In most cases, this procedure’s cost won’t vary too much when compared to a more typical non surgical nose job. As with traditional, surgical revision rhinoplasty, there are some variables involved, but those variables change the overall cost in much less dramatic fashion. Those variables include:
- Overall desired results
- Desired duration of the results
- Whether you want temporary or permanent results
- Which dermal filler you elect to have injected
- General geography: where you choose to have your non surgical revision rhinoplasty performed
There are, of course, always other factors to consider, but those are some of the elements that can sway cost in one direction or another.
Keeping Cost in Perspective
Whether you’re seeking to correct the outcome of a traditional, surgical rhinoplasty or a non surgical nose job, it’s important that cost alone not be the deciding factor when it comes to choosing to have your revision rhinoplasty procedure. There are, of course, many advantages of a non surgical revision procedure, including the instant gratification of seeing results immediately and the avoidance of a painful recovery period. But non surgical revision rhinoplasty cannot address every problem. If you are interested in a revision procedure, it’s best to consult with a highly qualified cosmetic surgeon in order to determine the best course of action.
That said, there are many issues that non surgical revision rhinoplasty can successfully address, and many of Dr. Rivkin’s non surgical nose job patients have been overjoyed not only by their results, but also by how easy it was to achieve those results. For these reasons, among others, non surgical revision rhinoplasty continues to be an incredibly popular option for many patients across the United States.
