Whatever the reason for having nose surgery is, whenever someone plans to have nose surgery, he or she considers the cost. It is very difficult to know about the exact cost of Rhinoplasty without consulting the surgeon but there are some factors that affect the cost of surgery and you should consider them while estimating nose surgery cost. Here we will discuss the same factors.
The surgeon’s fee varies from surgeon to surgeon depending on his experience and qualification. It includes the cost of surgery and pre-operative and post-operative care. This most of the times also includes the charges of post operative visit. Surgeon’s fee widely varies depending on the surgeon’s expertise, professional recognition, qualification and popularity. A popular and highly experienced plastic surgeon always charges more than an inexperienced plastic surgeon. But you should keep in mind that Rhinoplasty is a complicated procedure and only an experienced plastic surgeon ensures risk free surgery and successful results.
This portion of entire Rhinoplasty cost depends on two factors that are the experience of anesthesiologist and the type of anesthesia. Highly qualified and experienced anesthesiologist will obviously charge more than an inexperienced anesthesiologist or nurse practitioner. Safety and comfort of patient during surgery are directly related to the qualification and skill of anesthesiologist. When it comes to the type of anesthesia, general anesthesia is more expensive than local anesthesia and nose surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
Hospital costs also affect the entire cost of surgery and it varies from facility to facility. Generally, surgery performed in hospital is more expensive than the one performed in clinic facility. Hospital costs include the operating theatre fee. Hospital with well-trained staff and up to date equipments usually charges more but ensures successful results. Nose surgery is mostly performed on outpatient basis and patient returns home on the same day of surgery but in rare cases, patient may also require an overnight stay in hospital. This increases the entire cost.
Complexity and length of surgery:
The cost of surgery also depends on the length and complexity of surgery. Lengthy and more complicated surgery often becomes expensive. So, Rhinoplasty is comparatively inexpensive for the patients who require minor alterations in the nose.
Technique used for surgery:
Nose surgery can be performed using various techniques and the appropriate technique is selected according to the requirements of patient. The technique selected for Rhinoplasty also influences the overall cost of surgery.
Medical tests and prescriptions:
Like any other surgical procedure, Rhinoplasty requires medical tests before surgery depending on the health and other medical conditions he or she have. Surgeon also prescribes pre-surgical and post-surgical medications to ensure the comfort of patient. So, while estimating the cost, you must keep these factors in mind also.
