What is the actual cost of a nose job?
The actual cost of a nose job greatly varies from person to person; it is dependent on the kind of procedure you want and the experience that your surgeon have. However, the simplest non-surgical procedure can cost from as little as 300 dollars. Most procedures will cost more with the average procure costing about 4,000 dollars. More complex procedures will require more time to carry out and more expertise from the surgeon, this means that they will cost much more with some of the procedures costing as much as 10,000 dollars.
Is it covered by insurance?
If you are having a medically advised nose job, maybe to correct your breathing, your insurance will cover the costs. However, this kind of procedure requires a prior go ahead from the insurance company. On the other hand, aesthetic procedures are not covered by most insurance companies. This means you will have to dig deep into your pocket to achieve your dream look.
Hidden costs of a nose job
As much as many clinics will give a round figure for most procedures, there are other hidden or indirect costs that you will incur during or after the surgery. These costs are not usually part of the actual surgery. These could include:
Follow-up costs – you will need to go in for check-ups once in a while for the next 12 or so months after the surgery. Put in the fuel cost, consultation and medications that the doctor will suggest. This could run to a few hundreds of dollars.
Physical costs – these include the actual costs that you will incur during the surgery and during the post-operative recovery time. Intense nose jobs will require you to have someone around to take care of you and carry out chores around the house. This could mean hiring someone to do that. If your sister or friend comes to help you recover, you still need to foot their bills for the time of their stay highly increasing your overhead costs.
Emotional cost – One major thing that is not monetary and you need during and after a nose job is a strong emotional support system. It can come from family or friends.
All in all Helle Berry and Patrick Dempsey did not get their perfect nose jobs by going to cheap plastic surgeons. To achieve the most desired effect like Ashlee Simpson, look a plastic surgeon with a certified surgeon with a wealth of experience, a licensed facility and is registered with a major hospital. This will definitely cost you more but it is totally worth it.
