Nose Job or rhinoplasty surgery still remains in the top list of most requested cosmetic surgery in the past year.
A lot of people who are not satisfied with how their nose looks are not fazed by the price to get the fix done. However, the cost of the procedure can vary depending on the type of rhinoplasty that you want and the place where you plan to get it.
So here is a list of the average cost of the various types of rhinoplasty in Australian and other major countries.
A typical rhinoplasty procedure usually doesn’t come cheap. You have to shell out a couple of thousands to receive a decent result. There are different factors that contribute to the total amount, and this include the surgeon’s fee, anesthetic fee, theatre fee and even a part for the miscellaneous payments such as medications.
In Australia, a traditional rhinoplasty procedure is around $8,000 AUD, while in UK it typically costs £3,000-£4,000.
For a regular rhinoplasty the usual costs in the US, however, range from $3,000-$12,000 USD. The location and reputation of the surgeon also plays a major part in the total cost. For instance nose surgery in high demand areas such as New York City, Los Angeles or Atlanta can average around $7,000.
This type of rhinoplasty is also known as a secondary rhinoplasty, and typically it costs more than a primary procedure. This is because it takes more time and skill to perform. The price actually depends on what needs to be done, the length of time to correct the problem, and the need to harvest grafts.
The price can range from $5,000-$15,000 in the US, $10, 500 in Australia, and around £6,500 upwards in the UK. In some cases surgeons need to correct some imperfections that were not adequately addressed during the primary surgery. That is why they perform the needed secondary surgeries without additional charges.
Asian rhinoplasty is also a popular procedure most often requested by patients. Since the result of cosmetic surgery should enhance the look and not alter it, it is only right that patients are given appropriate surgical treatment. This also takes certain skill in order to ensure that the end result is in keeping with the Asian profile.
The cost of Asian nose job is around $5,000-$8,000 in the US, while it ranges from £3,000-£8,000 in the UK. In Australia, the price for this type of service can range from $3,000-$8,000. As you can see, it would take a considerable amount from your budget to get your own rhinoplasty procedure done.
Should you ever encounter a surgeon who gives you a rather low price for rhinoplasty surgery compared to the usual quotes in your area, never be too trustful with these offers. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Also, don’t be too quick to decide on it, because as you have seen it can be rather costly and results will already be permanent.
