Rhinoplasty is one of the sought after cosmetic surgery procedures because of its potential to enhance facial balance and created a more attractive looking face. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about various aspects of rhinoplasty, including its estimated costs.
The patient should make a well-considered decision after the considering the costs and potential benefits as well as the quality standards offered at a particular practice. Standout and sagacious board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala along with Dr. Susan Rhee provides rhinoplasty to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.
Factors Affecting the Costs
The costs of rhinoplasty can sometimes differ between two practices and even between two patients at the same practices due to a variety of factors.
Location of the Practice
The cost of living index usually varies between two regions, which will have an impact on the costs of all types of goods and services, including aesthetic procedures. Practices located in major urban centers or coastal areas typically have higher real estate costs and other overheads compared to a practice in a small town in an interior location. This will usually make a difference to the costs offered at a practice for rhinoplasty.
The fee charged by the surgeon is an important cost component in nose cosmetic surgery. The fee of surgeon may vary according to their skills and experience. Patients should ideally choose a surgeon who invests in high quality standards and best practices, uses cutting edge nose surgery techniques, focuses on less invasive innovations, and follows the latest safety protocols.
Operating Room Costs
The surgeon will usually have the option to perform nose surgery at a hospital, an accredited surgery center or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits associated with each option are different. Accredited surgical centers are more popular nowadays, but the patient should ensure that the facility has the latest surgical equipment and technology and is backed by a team of experienced support staff.
If the surgeon uses an open rhinoplasty technique, they may use general anesthesia. This will require the services of an anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist. They will charge a fee according to their qualifications and may charge on a per hour basis. They will normally be present throughout the surgery to monitor the patient’s response.
Extent of Surgery
If the patient requires a more complicated rhinoplasty, involving procedures such as bone or cartilage grafts, placement of implants or a major nose reconstruction, the overall cost of surgery may be higher. Similarly, revision rhinoplasty and ethnic rhinoplasty may require more intricate surgery work. The costs may be higher in such cases compared to a patient who only needs a minor cosmetic improvement in the nose tip or wants a bump on the nose bridge to be removed.
Patients should also account for other minor expenses such as medical tests, prescription drugs, and post-op appointments. Accomplished and resolute plastic surgeons Dr. Fiala and Dr. Rhee receive patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other cities and towns in this part of The Sunshine State for rhinoplasty.
