Asian Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Cost

by Dr. Daniel Lin


Asian Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Cost | Pasadena | Rowland HeightsThe appearance of the Asian nose is quite distinct in comparison to the western nose. For this reason, it warrants special surgical techniques to enhance its appearance without creating unnatural looking results that do not integrate with the other facial characteristics of the Asian face.

Asian rhinoplasty surgery is primarily undertaken for cosmetic enhancements. However, it may sometimes also be performed for functional correction.

Patients will likely not receive insurance coverage for an elective procedure such as Asian nose reshaping surgery and may have to bear the costs out of pocket.

Asian nose reshaping cosmetic surgery could involve significant costs. Therefore, the patient should understand the different factors that affect the dollar amount.

At the time of the initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will inform the patient on various facets of Asian nose surgery, including its estimated costs. The primary concern of the surgeon will be to ensure that the patient is able to make a judicious decision on the procedure.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin provides Asian rhinoplasty to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar and surrounding areas in California.


Financial Factors

Surgeon’s Fee

The credentials and professional standing of the nose surgeon can impact the cost of the procedure. The surgery may, at times, be undertaken by a relatively less experienced surgeon under the supervision of a senior surgeon. This may involve lower surgeon charges compared to a more experienced and highly skilled Asian rhinoplasty surgeon.

Surgical Facility

The Asian rhinoplasty procedure may be undertaken at an ambulatory surgical center, a hospital, or a private surgical suite. The surgical facility should be an accredited one.

The private surgical suite is usually situated within the surgeon’s office and will be the least expensive option. Ambulatory surgical centers will be more expensive and will usually charge on an hourly basis. The hospital is usually the most costly choice of surgical venue.

Anesthesia Costs

An anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist will administer the anesthesia to the patient. In comparison to an anesthesiologist, the fee of a registered nurse will be substantially lower. The choice will also depend on the patient and the surgeon’s level of comfort.

Extent of Surgery

Asian rhinoplasty cost will be lesser if it involves minor cosmetic modifications such as removing a nose bump or refining the nasal tip. However, in case the surgery is complex and extended involving nasal reconstruction, implants, or functional corrections, it will involve higher costs.


Costs during the Post-Operative Phase

The initial surgical costs may exclude expenses such as follow-up appointments during the recovery phase, pain medications, anti-nausea drugs, antibiotics, and any laboratory tests.

If the patient experiences acne breakouts or hyperpigmentation in the initial few months after the Asian nose surgery procedure, they will need to use good quality skin care products.

Such expenses may be unaccounted for in the overall Asian rhinoplasty costs. However, they should be planned for beforehand or built into the overall Asian nose reshaping cosmetic surgery costs.


Insurance Coverage

Patients may be eligible to receive insurance coverage for functional rhinoplasty procedures. For instance, conditions such as large inferior turbinate and nasal vestibular stenosis may cause breathing obstructions in the nose. The patient can also suffer from breathing hindrances due to nasal fractures or a deviated septum.
