Rhinoplasty Cost: Understanding the Cost of a Nose Job

Information About the Cost of a Rhinoplasty Procedure with Dr. Jacono in New York, NY

How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?

Rhinoplasty, also known as the nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. Rhinoplasties generally redefine the nose’s size, shape, and aesthetic.

The vast majority of rhinoplasties are performed for cosmetic purposes, though some target functional issues. For example, if a patient has breathing problems, a rhinoplasty can correct the nose’s structures and alleviate complications.

Rhinoplasty with Dr. Jacono prices may be lower or higher depending on a number of factors, including:

  • Surgeon’s level of expertise
  • Difficulty of surgery
  • Primary or revision surgery
  • Need for cartilage grafting
  • Surgical facility
  • Geographic location

Rhinoplasties performed by the most skilled plastic surgeons greatly improve facial harmony. They often have the added benefit of building or reconstructing, a patient’s self-confidence.

Dr. Jacono specializes in creating extremely natural results. His aesthetically balanced surgical skills allow him to deliver results unique to each client.

Choosing a Rhinoplasty Surgeon

As you select the most qualified physician, it is important to ensure that he or she is a board-certified plastic surgeon. You should also consider a surgeon who only specializes in facial aesthetic procedures. This level of specialization is important to consider, as these doctors are experts and should be able to produce better results.

A surgeon’s expertise and experience, along with the location of their office, play a significant role in the cost of rhinoplasty. Keep in mind, however, that your level of comfort with the surgeon is more important than the price.

Prospective patients should spend time researching a qualified surgeon. They should examine their chosen physician’s before and after rhinoplasty photographs to gauge the quality of work. Scheduling a consultation is a great next step, as it will allow patients to discuss the surgeon’s credentials and recommendations. During the consultation process, patients can discover where the procedure will be performed. This also plays a role in cost.

Dr. Jacono has performed thousands of primary and secondary rhinoplasties. He is board-certified by the ABFPRS and is a member of the Rhinoplasty Society, a national organization of leading rhinoplasty surgeons. He has surgical locations in both New York City and Long Island.

Is Rhinoplasty a Major Surgery?

Many people mistakenly believe that, because the nose is a small body part, rhinoplasty is a simple surgery. However, because the nose is an important part of the respiratory system, a nose job is a major procedure. Even minor mistakes can change the way a person looks and affect breathing. Damages like these can dramatically hinder a patient’s self-esteem and quality of life.

Only surgeons with years of expertise should be trusted to perform nose jobs. Luckily, Dr. Jacono is an expert in all kinds of rhinoplasty and delivers the best possible results to his patients.

Rhinoplasty Prices and Surgical Facilities

Usually, rhinoplasty surgery is performed in one of three places:

  • Private surgical suite
  • Outpatient surgery center
  • Hospital

Private surgical suites: These surgical suites are usually located at the surgeon’s office. They tend to be the least expensive of the three options, as the surgeon controls overhead costs associated with the operation. Another significant benefit of the private surgical suite is that the doctor is very familiar with the layout of the facility. The surgeon may also use the same reliable surgical staff.

Outpatient surgery center: Outpatient centers tend to be slightly more expensive than a surgeon’s private office. They are owned by a third party and provide everything the surgeon needs to perform the procedure. 

Hospitals: Hospitals of all kinds tend to be the most expensive venue for rhinoplasty procedures.

Dr. Jacono is affiliated with a number of hospitals in New York. However, he performs the majority of his surgeries in his state-of-the-art, private surgical suite. This allows him to control the cost of all surgical procedures.

Geographic Location and Cost

Geographic location is as much a factor in the cost of rhinoplasty as a surgeon’s experience. Typically, in larger, more affluent markets such as New York and Beverly Hills, the cost of surgery is higher. Affluent neighborhoods have higher costs of living, which leads to higher overhead. This raises the price of surgery.

Smaller towns may seem alluring in that they offer less expensive surgical options. Patients should be aware, though, that surgeons in these areas may have seen fewer cases than surgeons located in busier markets. If a surgeon sees fewer cases, they may have less experience. While saving money is normally good, cutting costs on cosmetic surgery could spell disaster.

Who is the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon?

Dr. Jacono is a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon and pioneer in his field. He is one of a small group of doctors who have achieved certification in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as in head and neck surgery. He has performed thousands of primary and revision rhinoplasties and is considered by peers and patients alike to be one of the best nose surgeons in the world.
