There is no ideal candidate for Rhinoplasty. It is a procedure with so many variables that there is no nose excluded from the list. There are always health requirements with any surgical request and it is best to discuss these with Dr Moradi during your consultation.
Most rhinoplasty procedures are covered by primary medical insurance but we still like to be upfront about the potential costs. It is impossible to give a catch-all figure for bespoke surgical procedures, but you can expect to pay around $11,000 – $16,000 depending on your personal needs.
The costs break down as follows:
- Anesthesia Fees
- Private Hospital or Outpatient Surgical Facility Fees
- Insurance Coverage Percentages
- Additional Facial Plastic Surgical Procedures
- Surgical Assistant’s Fee
As we talk with you we will make sure you understand the specifications and descriptions of the surgical procedure itself. For your reference, we outline the procedure below, but if you have any questions prior to a consultation, in the run up to surgery or during recovery do not hesitate to ask.
Consultation: The consultation is in many ways as important as the procedure itself. We help you explore your goals and motivations and our experienced surgeon, Dr Moradi, is there to guide and advise you.
3D Imaging: During your consultation Dr. Moradi will use 3D computer generated images to closely simulate how your nose and face will look after the operation.
“I use advanced 3D Vectra imaging to simulate the predicted post-op result and plan your operation. I find using the simulation is a far more reliable and reproducible tool than before and after photographs or using Photoshop. More importantly, I get a sense of your surgical goals through the changes you wish to make to your 3D model. Today, attention should be placed on understanding your surgical goals and planning the procedure together”
Recovery: The entire surgical experience is performed under a general anesthetic and can be performed as an outpatient surgery, or with a little as an overnight stay. Most patients need one to two weeks off work whilst the splints are still on. Patients will receive complete post-operative instructions to maximise their recovery time and comfort.
