Your Germantown nose job may have several components, including correcting your deviated septum, removing the bump on your nose, refining your nasal tip, making your nose less wide with a nasal in-fracture, making your nasal tip profile less prominent, or making the nostrils of your nose flare out less. What kind of pain would you expect from all or some of these procedures?
The most pain you will feel is from any potential bony work, specifically if the bony part of your nose needs to be made more narrow. If your nose job requires your plastic surgeon to break your nose, and then make it more narrow, then this will hurt the most. Even though your nasal bones are very thin, breaking your nasal bones will probably cause bruising under your eyelid areas and around your cheeks, as well as significant pain right after your rhinoplasty surgery.
Cost of Rhinoplasty
When I hear about rhinoplasty, a new face comes to my mind. It is of Bibi Aisha, an afghan girl of 19 years who was just brutally harmed and got her nose chopped off by her cruel husband. She showed an open face of an afghan lady in the cover page of Time, one of the popular magazines across US. Here is where rhinoplasty has its all priority.
Can you imagine a girl with her nose sliced off coming back to life after a couple of months with a new nose flap? Though earlier, it may be a matter of concern now it's never an issue with an easy rhinoplasty. Actually, the word rhinoplasty had its birth from two Greek terms, rhinos mean nose and 'plassein', to shape. It is done as an operative procedure in order to improve nose appearance or enhance or normalize the function of the nose.
It is performed by an otolaryngologist or an ENT surgeon. Nose shaping or nose job is another name of rhinoplasty. Some of the indications of rhinoplasty include birth defects, traumatic injuries affecting nose and nasal septum, cosmetic problems etc. it is also done in adjunct with chin augmentation procedures. Rhinoplasty is usually performed under local or general anesthesia. It is done through two approaches; one is an open approach where an extra incison is placed at columella, a thin membrane splitting two nostrils. Closed approach deals with the rhinoplasty where incisions are made in the nostrils.
Rhinoplasty is of primary and secondary types. Primary rhinoplasty is done as an initial cosmetic or functional procedure. Secondary rhinoplasty, as the name suggests is done secondary to primary rhinoplasty and is very common with almost 5- 20% of cases. There are a lot more new interventions brought in the rhinoplasty. It's very useful in refurbishing the air flow, reforming the normal contour and many more. Congenital problems, nasal obstructions, skin cancer excisions, vascular abnormalities etc are treated successfully with rhinoplasty.
Laser rhinoplasty is also done for simple problems. Non surgical rhinoplasty deals with procedure that does not involve any open penetration but treating by injecting medicines and other line of treatment. Non surgical treatment is usually done in an outpatient setting.
Though less, there are some major complications related to rhinoplasty. One is bleeding or hematoma formation as in the case of any surgical procedure, infections, scar formation or adhesions, whistling and difficulty in breathing due to crusting, polly beak deformity etc.
Nose Job Prices
If you're planning on rhinoplasty you should know that the total cost of your rhinoplasty will be made up of several factors. The largest costs will be the doctor's fee and the facilities charges, but you will also be charged for support staff, anesthesia and equipment and supplies. The charges make up the total cost of your rhinoplasty. Typically a rhinoplasty that is done in the plastic surgeon's office will be cheaper than one performed in a hospital.
Anesthesia can also be a significant cost, especially if your rhinoplasty requires you to be kept asleep for a long period of time. Not just the cost of the anesthesia, but also the fees for the anesthesiologist, the support staff and the facilities fees will be higher the longer you are kept asleep for your surgery. If you are able to have the surgery with just local anesthesia your costs will be much lower.
All of these costs together affect the total cost of rhinoplasty surgery. Your plastic surgeon should take the time to explain all of this prior to your surgery and make sure that you understand the total costs involved. Across the U.S. the average cost of rhinoplasty is $700. Depending on what area of the country the surgery is performed in your costs can be higher or lower. Rhinoplasty surgery is typically higher because of the higher costs in California and also because of the experience of the surgeons. Once again, your plastic surgeon will be able to give you a complete breakdown and explanation of the costs involved with your rhinoplasty.
Some rhinoplasty surgeons will quote you a single package price that includes everything. If you're comfortable with that fine, but if you want to know the breakdown of costs the plastic surgeon should be able to provide you with them. Just make sure you're comfortable either way.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons defines the cost of rhinoplasty surgery as any nasal surgery performed by a board certified plastic surgeon. This can include anything from the removal of a small imperfection like a bump up to complete reconstruction of the nose and nasal passageways. As you might expect, the more complex the surgery, the higher the costs. Costs also increase based on location and the traiing and experience of the surgeon. As I said earlier, plastic surgeons are at the higher end of the costs scale.
Be careful with package quotes as some plastic surgeons will try to hide some of the costs involved in the rhinoplasty so they can bill an insurance company. Insurance companies do not cover cosmetic rhinoplasty, but they will cover costs for rhinoplasty done to correct a medical problem such as deviated septums. Be aware if your doctor is planning on billing your insurance for your rhinoplasty and if you don't want to be involved with this practice let your cosmetic surgeon know.
While some view the cost of rhinoplasty to be high, many others feel the cost is easily justified by their improved appearance. Cosmetic surgeons are highly trained and experienced and you're sure to have a great result when choosing one of them. Make sure you know your doctor and know the costs of rhinoplasty and you're sure to have a great experience and love your new nose.
