Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery Cost
Reviewed by Andrew Jacono, MD
Because it requires more expertise and time to perform, revision rhinoplasty can cost considerably more than primary nose surgery. Primary nose surgery costs between $3,000 and $8,000 while revision nose surgery costs range from $10,000 to $15,000.
If your revision rhinoplasty is the result of a complication from your primary rhinoplasty, your surgeon may perform the revision for free or for a reduced fee. ( Ask about your surgeon's policy during your initial consultation.) You will still be responsible for the operating room fee, anesthesia fee, and all other expenses related to the surgery.
If the purpose of your revision rhinoplasty is purely cosmetic, it's considered elective surgery and medical insurance will probably not cover it. However, if your revision is for a function problem, such as correcting an airway, some or all of the cost may be covered. Be sure to check with your insurer to confirm before the surgery is performed.
Financing is available to help pay for many cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. Ask your surgeon if he or she participates in a financing program if you need help covering the cost of your revision rhinoplasty.

Understanding the price difference between primary and revision rhinoplasty is just one component to consider before undergoing the procedure. It is important to consult with your surgeon about any associated revision rhinoplasty risks and what the revision rhinoplasty recovery process will be like.
