What is Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Kim provides rhinoplasty treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, CA and surrounding communities. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon for rhinoplasty, he ensures that the basic integrity of the face is not altered, while the right level of aesthetic enhancement is achieved by making subtle improvements to the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty may appear to be a simple procedure, but it involves intricate treatment. A minor change to the shape or size of the nose bridge or nasal tip or nostrils can make a significant change to the patient’s facial profile.
Rhinoplasty Cost by Location
The cost of rhinoplasty procedure will vary from one location to another. For instance, the cost of the procedure in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, CA or surrounding communities is going to be different from the cost of a similar surgery in Texas. The cost of living index in different cities and different states varies. It affects the cost of all kinds of services, including plastic surgery services in that area. The average income levels are also generally proportionately higher in expensive locations. Therefore, most people would prefer to have the treatment closer to home rather than travel to another city or state just to achieve a cost benefit in that location.
The skills, experience and reputation of the cosmetic surgeon will make a difference to the overall costs of rhinoplasty. Surgeons who are in great demand because of their successful track record of performing rhinoplasties may charge a higher fee because they are hard-pressed for time. As a general rule of thumb, a new surgeon with little or no experience in rhinoplasty procedure is not likely to charge a fee similar to a surgeon who has more than two decades of experience in performing rhinoplasties.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons advises that patients should consider the quality and experience of the surgeon as a key priority while making a decision on rhinoplasty. Higher fee of the surgeon will be forgotten quickly, but a poorly performed nose surgery will continue to serve a painful reminder every day. Therefore, it is worth choosing an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon, even if he or she charges a relatively higher fee.
