The Most Important Thing to Look Out For in Your Surgeon.

great deal of expertise to achieve the best results. It is important that
you only engage the services of board certified plastic surgeons, and
those with high reputational image and client satisfaction.
There are a few other points to note;

Experience. The years of experience and number of surgeries the
surgeon has performed can help you determine if they are the
right fit for you.

Specialty. Are they specialist in this area of surgery or is the
procedure one of many they can handle? Answers to these
questions can help you filter your search.

Repuscore. The repuscore is the overall rating of the surgeon or
surgical practice on our platform. The score collates the ratings
under different metrics and assign a commiserate score to the

satisfaction surveys.

What to Expect

There are several variations of the Rhinoplasty surgery, each designed
to target certain areas of the nose or specific issues. The nose job
entails a reconstruction or correction of the structure of the nose. It
may also include a jaw implant to create a balanced facial feature.
Rhinoplasty can be done in conjunction with other facial surgeries or as
a stand-alone operation.
The procedure is highly individualistic and as such, there are specific
procedures for each individual under specific conditions.
Your surgeon would examine you and talk you through the various
stages and variation of your procedure. Depending on the procedure
and technique used, you can expect very minimal scarring or health
issues arising from complications.

Generally, what is the Recovery Time?

Recovery time is usually 2 – 4 weeks. The procedure is considered as an
outpatient procedure, as such you would return home the same day.
Full recovery will take a couple of weeks to months depending on the
nature of the procedure and the individual involved in the surgery.
Some of the steps to take to ensure a quick and smooth recovery
include:

Sleep with their heads elevated

Wear clothes that button, rather than go on over the head

Brush their teeth gently to avoid irritating the upper lip and nose

Keep their faces still as much as possible

Apply cold compresses to the nose and mid-face

Eat soft foods that still have plenty of nutrients and fiber

Take baths, rather than showers, while the bandages remain in
place

Avoid blowing their noses

Change bandages and gauze, as instructed by their doctors

How much does it cost?

Because of the individualistic nature of the procedure, there isn’t a set
cost amount for Rhinoplasty. Invoice amounts are usually decided after
thorough examination and consultations with your surgeon. However,
the experience of the surgeon, the location of the practice, your health
and medical history, and the extent of work to be done can count as
some of the factors that would determine how much it would cost.
A standard procedure would cost anywhere between $3000 and
$15000. The cost would usually include:
1. Surgeon’s fee
2. Operating room fees
3. Anesthesia fees
4. Medical tests
5. Prescriptions for medication
6. Post-surgical garments (compression garments, etc.)
Rhinoplasty is an elective cosmetic procedure so; it is not covered by
health insurance plans. But for cases where it is medically indicated to
help with breathing, your insurance company can make an exception.
You can discuss this and more during consultations with your surgeon.

Some practices offer in-house financing for patients. You can speak
with your surgeon for details of how to obtain financing.

Except for medically indicated situations, a Rhinoplasty is often
intended to boost facial features and to improve body confidence. The
procedure accentuates your appearance and brings a youthful look to
your overall presentation.
