How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost
Rhinoplasty Cost - Dr. Jacono's patient care coordinator Diane discuss a frequent question "How much does a Rhinoplasty Cost".
A rhinoplasty procedure, also referred to as a nose job or nose reshaping, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States. Rhinoplasty procedures are generally performed to help with redefining the size of your nose, the shape of your nose, and the overall appearance of your nose.

Choosing a Rhinoplasty Surgeon
When choosing a qualified rhinoplasty surgeon, make sure that he or she is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon. You should also consider a surgeon who has specialized in face procedures only. This level of specialization is important to consider since they are likely experts on facial features and shapes and should be able to produce better results.
The experience and expertise of the surgeon along with their office location will both play a significant role in the overall cost of your rhinoplasty surgery but keep in mind that your comfort level with the surgeon and their surgical experience are more important than how much the procedure will actually cost. Dr. Jacono has performed thousands of rhinoplasties, specializing in primary and revision rhinoplasty, is board certified by the ABFPRS, and is a member of the Rhinoplasty Society; a national organization of leading rhinoplasty specialty surgeons across the country.
You will want to spend some time researching a qualified surgeon and examine their before and after rhinoplasty photos so see the quality of their work. Scheduling a consultation with the surgeon would be a great next step to speak to them about their credentials and what their recommendations may be. During the consultation process you can also discover where the procedure would be performed. This will also play a role in total cost.

Rhinoplasty Prices and Surgical Facilities
When it comes to rhinoplasty surgery, there are three main options for where the surgery will be performed.
- Private Surgical Suite
- Outpatient Surgery Center
Private surgical suites: these surgical suites tend to be located at the surgeon’s office. They also tend to be the least expensive of the three since the surgeon can control overhead and costs associated with their operating room. One significant benefit to the private surgical suite is the doctor will be very familiar with the layout of the facility and usually uses the same surgical staff.
Outpatient surgery center: tend to be slightly higher in cost then a surgeon’s private office. The centers are owned by a third party and they provide everything the surgeon will need to perform the procedure.
Hospitals: They tend to be the most expensive venue for your rhinoplasty procedure.
Dr. Jacono has numerous hospital affiliations throughout New York, but performs most of his surgeries in his state of the art private surgical suite to control the cost of rhinoplasty.
Geographic Location and Cost
As mentioned above, the experience level of a surgeon plays a role in the total cost of the rhinoplasty procedure. Another big deciding factor is where that surgeon is located geographically. Typically, in large affluent markets such as New York and Beverly Hills, the cost for the surgery will be higher than those performed in smaller towns. These affluent neighborhoods have a higher cost of living which leads to higher overhead costs thus making the overall price of the surgery higher.
While the smaller towns may seem alluring based on cost alone, you may find that the surgeon has seen fewer cases than a surgeon located in a much larger market. Fewer cases would mean less experience and while saving some money is always good, when it comes to cosmetic surgeries, it could spell disaster.
