Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought out surgical procedures. The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and when an individual isn't entirely happy about the features or the way it fits with the rest of their face, rhinoplasty is an excellent surgical option to provide balance and harmony to the face.
Utah Facial Plastics double board-certified ENT(otolaryngology) and facial plastic surgeons perform upwards to 450 rhinoplasties per year and have over 50 years of combined experience in procedures of the face and neck. Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult and complex cosmetic procedures to perform so it is important to choose a specialist that does these procedures often.
Drs. Henstrom, Thompson, and Manning are experts of the internal and external components of the nose and you can trust their expertise on septoplasty, rhinoplasty, or revision rhinoplasty surgeries. Our first-calss team of nurses, medical assistants, and staff are here to ensure your procedure and experience are top notch from beginning to end. A consultation will help you get to know your surgeon, discuss your concerns or desires for change, and ultimately map out a path that is best for you if surgery is the right option.
what should i expect from my rhinoplasty consultation
When visiting with one of Utah Facial Plastics rhinoplasty experts, the surgeon will discuss your medical history with you and examine the bones and cartilages of your nose. There are many variables that are factored into re-shaping the nose. A rhinoplasty may involve a simple bump shave or "dorsal hump" reduction or you may need an open rhinoplasty with changes that may include changing the nasal cartilages, resizing and lifting the tip, or more. UFP doctors will always approach the surgery with safety and functionality being the most important aspects. If there is a desire to change the appearance of the nose as well as corrections in breathing (septoplasty), it is best to combine breathing and cosmetic changes together.
Each patient is unique and it is important to discuss the goals and changes that are desired and how they will harmonize with the rest of the face. Following consultation along with optional digital imaging, our team will move forward with a plan if surgery is right and the patient wishes to proceed with having a procedure.
The cost for a nose job in Utah averages anywhere between $4000-$15000. This usually consists of the physician fee, anesthesia, and facility charges. Rhinoplasty varies in a way that a patient could be interested in a simple bump shave procedure where another may need a complete rhinoplasty revision. There are many factors to consider internally and externally, therefor it is best to research a qualified ENT/ facial plastic surgeon and have an in-depth consultation to go over desired changes and goals.
Once you have visited with you Utah Facial Plastics surgeon, you will meet with a patient care coordinator who will go over an individual quote with you and surgery planning if you decide to proceed.
If you are considering alterations to your nose and have concerns with surgery or costs, you can consider an alternative non-surgical rhinoplasty or "liquid rhinoplasty". A non-surgical rhinoplasty is done with the use of injectable fillers like Juvederm or Restylane. This type of procedure is non-invasive, but it does have risks of its own.
Not all individuals are a candidate for this procedure, as filler does have its limitations in what it can do. Dr. Henstrom and Dr. Manning are UFP's 2 providers who offer non-surgical rhinoplasty, it is best to visit with them to discuss this treatment and determine if you are a candidate. Sometimes rhinoplasty is the best and only option for nose corrections and we recommend saving up funds if rhinoplasty is the best course of action.
Although a nose job is mostly sought out for cosmetic reasons, a nose job can also benefit patients in other ways when it comes to breathing. Whether it is for cosmetic or functional purposes, rhinoplasty is more than just getting a better nose, it's about improving one's quality of life. Getting the nose your desire can do wonders for self-esteem and confidence. Rhinoplasty is personal decision and should be made between the patient and surgeon performing the procedure.
Rhinoplasty is typically a cosmetic procedure and not covered by insurance companies. Plastic surgery can be costly, but if it is a procedure that you feel is right for you and a path you want to proceed, there are different ways you can save and budget for a procedure.
- Save a monthly amount towards your surgery until you have saved enough
- Take out a personal loan at a low percentage rate
- Care Credit is a healthcare credit card designed to pay for cosmetic or reconstructive procedures.
- Some cosmetic centers offer in house financing, Utah Facial Plastics has a beauty bank program that you can deposit money into and we will hold it for you until you are ready to do your procedure. To learn more about our financing options, visit here.
