It’s only natural for patients seeking out plastic surgery to be concerned with the cost of rhinoplasty. Unfortunately, the reality is that all cases are different and it’s difficult to give out even rough estimates of rhinoplasty cost online. However, consulting with an outstanding double board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad – known more casually to his patients as Dr. J – is an excellent place to start.
More than most plastic surgeries, rhinoplasty may sometimes be covered by medical insurance. If a surgery is necessitated by such medical issues as a deviated septum, health insurance will typically cover most of the expenses. The fact that we may also be improving the appearance of the nose at the same time is not an issue as long as the procedure is deemed medically necessary.
In the case of a strictly cosmetic procedure where the patient is not covered by insurance, then rhinoplasty cost has to be borne by the patient. We nevertheless encourage anyone who would like a nose contouring procedure to get in touch with us before ruling it out. Many patients assume that rhinoplasty in Los Angeles is actually more expensive than it really is, but the truth is that we’ve found that rhinoplasty cost is rarely determinative of whether or not a patient obtains a procedure. Financing through CareCredit is available for patients who need to make the cost of treatment more manageable.
Another factor to consider is that Dr. J is a leader in reducing the time required for rhinoplasty recovery. Since time off from work is often a major hidden cost of surgery, reducing recovery time can significantly reduce the cost of rhinoplasty.
Obtaining plastic surgery is not like buying cornflakes and shopping on price can lead to disastrous consequences. Experts in the field agree the most important choice facing patients is their selection of a doctor; they also agree that only board certified plastic surgeons should be considered. Dr. J is double board certified in both plastic surgery and general surgery and he receives consistent praise from former patients online. His outstanding outcomes can be seen on this site through before and after pictures. If you like what you see, we will be delighted to hear from you.
For patients who are concerned about the price and who would like more information, feel free to get in touch with us at the phone number. Dr. J is known for his sensitive and compassionate approach and he will happily help patients consider the often difficult issues surrounding rhinoplasty costs.
