Case 38: This beautiful young lady is an early 6 month example of a finesse rhinoplasty. On front view you can see the bridge is narrower and the sense of hang is improved. On profile, the tip looks undone, natural and less projected with correction of the slight hanging columella. The result is a beautiful, natural look that corrects the issues but leaves her looking totally natural and undone.
This is one of the most common questions for patients.  Breast augmentation is widely variable in cost because each patient is different in their goals for the procedure.  Depending on factors such as body type, frame, skin type, and look there are a wide variety of implants that meet each goal.  The technology is vastly improved from previous versions of the devices but in general saline cost less than silicone.  Silicone has different cohesiveness to it and each level that you increase the cohesiveness can cost more.  Also, different manufactures (allergen, mentor, sientra) have different cost for similar technology.  I would recommend going in for a consultation so that you can see, feel, and learn about the differences between them.  At that point you could get accurate information on cost as they very from physician to physician, practice to practice, and patient to patient (as other procedures may be needed).
5) What kind of anesthesia will you be getting and who will be doing it?  Like surgeons, different anesthetists charge different fees, and use different anesthetic agents.  At the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute our anesthetist come with probably the most extensive cosmetic surgery experience in Toronto.  And the medications we use are more expensive than others, but we use them not to have an excuse to charge you more, but to keep you more comfortable, in less pain, and minimal to no nausea and vomiting after surgery.
Case 94: This patient was seeing the early signs of facial aging including loss of skin tone and elasticity, early jowling, and heaviness under the chin. A lower facelift along with fat transfer to the under eye and cheek area substantially improved the contour and even apparent texture of her skin, making her look noticeably younger. In addition, the overall effect was completed with a rhinoplasty focused on reducing the width, rounding, and thickness of her tip and nostrils which is a challenge in the setting of thick skin.
A quick internet search will easily reveal the average cost of breast implants which can be misleading; these statistics rarely include costs associated with surgery like anesthesia, facility, and surgeons fees. Before you start mentally shopping for your new bikini or creating that new Pinterest board, consider the following factors that may affect the price of breast implants:
Because you will be under anesthesia, you will be unable to drive yourself home after your procedure. It is important to make arrangements before your surgery and have a loved one or friend ready to pick you up. You will also be prescribed pain medication which you should pick up before your procedure as you will spend the following days afterwards recuperating and won’t be able to perform everyday activities until you are healed.

With the increase of university umbers and complementary studies, first grade universities especially in the capital city have certainly higher scientific and practical quality. Note that without exaggeration, Iranian medicine is the most advanced in the world after US. It’s even better than that in Europe. Recent years during which complementary studies in the universities of neighbor countries, and in Eastern & Western Europe, have become current, Universities in Tehran have indeed many advantages compared with the said universities.

It's the anticipation. We all tend to worry about new things we are unfamiliar with, and rhinoplasty surgery is one of those things. If you've never had surgery before, it's not unusual to be nervous and worry about every little detail. Will it hurt? Will I be in pain? When rhinoplasty is performed using a general anesthetic, you won't remember the procedure and you won't feel a thing. Most patients wake up after surgery realizing there was nothing to be scared about – and feeling silly for having worried at all.
The cost of rhinoplasty is dependent upon several factors. First you will want to take into consideration the level of skill, years of practice and quality of education of your surgeon. You want to ensure that your plastic surgeon is board certified, with plenty of experience and knowledge. Even better is if he or she is also competent in revision rhinoplasty surgery. The physician’s time and the complexity of the procedure, in conjunction with the anesthesia fee and operating room is also associated in the cost. In addition, is the facility spotless, licensed, and state-of-the-art? When considering rhinoplasty, it is important to do your research and consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who has a depth of experience. In my practice, I approach rhinoplasty similar to that of an artist:  your face is the canvas, and my eyes and hands are the paint brush. Very carefully and delicately I enjoy creating an elegant, well-defined nose that not only enhances your facial features, but leaves you with a more beautiful version of yourself.  
Your primary augmentation is not the only cost you need to factor in when you are asking how much do breast implants cost. Women with silicone gel breast implants must factor in long term maintenance costs. Silicone gel breast implants can have “silent ruptures,” where an implant ruptures without showing any symptoms. The FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants get an MRI scan three years after getting their implants, then every two years for the life of the implant to detect silent ruptures. If a silicone gel implant ruptures, you will need surgery to remove the implant shell and any leaked silicone gel. It is important to remove implants that have ruptured because the silicone gel may begin to leak outside of the capsule and cause painful symptoms. The FDA lists a few of these symptoms as, “a decrease in breast size, change in breast implant shape, hard lumps over the implant or chest area, an uneven appearance of the breasts, pain or tenderness, tingling, swelling, numbness, burning, or changes in sensation.” However, because of the out-of-pocket cost of MRIs, many women skip their recommended MRI scans. According to Business Insider the average cost of an MRI is $444 to $1468. That means if a woman with silicone gel breast implants keeps up with the recommended MRIs she will pay on average $3,108 to $10,276 just for MRIs if her implants stay intact for 20 years. That puts the total cost of silicone gel breast implants closer to $10,000-$20,000 over 20 years, and even more if a revision surgery is needed.
Many people are dissatisfied with their nose. When they look in the mirror they see it as misshapen and disrupting their facial symmetry. Rhinoplasty surgery, otherwise known as a nose job, can correct the overall appearance of the nose, create facial harmony and even help with breathing issues in those who suffer from deviated septums or sinus problems.
Case 12: One of the things that we love about rhinoplasty is that we can combine dramatic changes such as straightening this patient’s nasal twist, and at the same time create some subtle enhancements such as refining and slightly deprojecting the tip while reducing the sense of columellar show. At 6 months, her nose now balances with her face and really brings out her beautiful eyes.
Case 42: Crooked noses can be one of the hardest things to correct in Rhinoplasty, especially if there has been significant trauma involved. The entire nose must be reconstructed in order to make the desired improvements. It took a lot of work to straighten and improve breathing in this patient’s nose. At the same time, his Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty was designed to make his nose a little smaller, more refined, and less down-turned while still looking natural. Even the scar on his tip was improved as part of his surgery.
Some patients still choose saline implants, which have sterile salt water in a silicone shell.  They can be filled after they’re placed, which means incisions and scars can be smaller. Some doctors consider saline rupture less of a concern because your body naturally absorbs the salt water, and patients can more easily see signs of a rupture (like a sagging breast) to catch it more quickly.
If you’re researching “how much do breast implants cost,” chances are you are imagining all the benefits they offer. Breast augmentation is the top cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States for a reason. Breast augmentations have a high rate of patient satisfaction according to research. In a study published in the May 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, researchers gathered information from 225 women after their breast augmentations. The study revealed that 91.1% of women felt improved self-esteem, 64.3% had an improved quality of life, and 98.7% would repeat the surgery. But there is another side to breast implants, one you should know about before scheduling your plastic surgery consultation. While the initial costs and satisfaction rates are similar between implant types, the long-term maintenance costs and emotional toll differs in important ways. Silicone gel breast implants carry a high rate of certain complications and an increased anxiety when compared to the newest breast implant on the market, IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants.
The ARTOURA™ Breast Tissue Expander or CONTOUR PROFILE® Breast Tissue Expander can be utilized for breast reconstruction after mastectomy, correction of an underdeveloped breast, scar revision, and tissue defect procedures. The expander is intended for temporary subcutaneous or submuscular implantation and is not intended for use beyond six months. Do not use the ARTOURA Tissue Expander nor CONTOUR PROFILE® Tissue Expander in patients where an MRI may be needed. The device could be moved by the MRI causing pain or displacement, potentially resulting in a revision surgery. The incidence of extrusion of the expander has been shown to increase when the expander has been placed in injured areas.
If you’re having what’s called an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon will make an incision (about 6 millimeters long) in the skin between the nostrils. “Open rhinoplasty is a very common technique, where the skin is lifted upward like the hood on a car,” says Dr. Ronald Schuster, a Baltimore plastic surgeon, in a RealSelf Q&A about open vs. closed rhinoplasties. If you’re having a closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are placed on the inside of the nose, so there are no external scars.
As with any medical/surgical treatment, individual results may vary. Only a surgeon/physician can determine whether reconstruction or augmentation>is an appropriate course of treatment. The following are general adverse events associated with breast implant surgery: Device Rupture, Capsular contracture, Infection, Hematoma/Seroma, Pain, Reoperation, Implant removal, changes in Nipple and Breast Sensation, unsatisfactory results, breast-feeding complications. Other reported conditions are listed in the Product Insert Data Sheet (PIDS). See full list in the PIDS for the product information. These potential adverse events, including contraindications, warnings, and precautions need to be discussed with your doctor prior to surgery.

If the repair or revision of the nose is extensive, then the operating time is longer and there will be more expense involved. The fee is also based on the geographical location. For example, the cost of any facial cosmetic surgery in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, will be more expensive than the same procedure here in Toronto. The other factor and the most important consideration is the experience of the facial plastic surgeon performing the operation. As a facial plastic surgeon gains experience and clientele, their fee is usually more than that of a novice.
The consultation is your chance to get acquainted with the doctor and find out if you two see eye to eye. It is also your opportunity to explain why you want to have rhinoplasty and what your particular goals are. You will sit down with the doctor and tell him or her about your nose and what you would like to change. If you've had any previous nasal surgery or have broken your nose in the past, the doctor will want to know about that, too. If you have pictures of noses you like, bring them along so the doctor can get an even clearer idea of what you're hoping for. The doctor will examine your nose and explain what changes can be achieved and how the procedure will be performed.
Patients seriously thinking about crowd funding their cosmetic procedures should look for medical crowd funding platforms, or use well-established reputable crowd funding sites. A well-established crowd funding site will increase the visibility of the campaign, as well as protect your identity, without asking the patient to ever communicate directly with donors.
It is important that, no matter what the fee, you feel comfortable with your surgeon and confident in his operating ability. Although a rhinoplasty is the most difficult procedure for a facial plastic surgeon to perform, it is Dr. Torgerson’s specialty. He is not only an accredited surgeon, but has also received certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada to perform head, neck, and facial cosmetic surgery. Viewing before and after photos of his previous rhinoplasty patients will alleviate your anxiety ,and you will be confident that the fee charged is well worth the price!
However, if a patient underwent surgery in another country, but experiences post-operative complications, he or she will need to pay to travel back to the same destination if they wish to have the same doctor oversee any revisions. Revision surgery performed by a different surgeon is extremely difficult, and thus more expensive. In fact, it can cost 50 percent more than the original surgery. Therefore, it can actually be far more economical to pay for a surgery within the U.S.

A quick internet search will easily reveal the average cost of breast implants which can be misleading; these statistics rarely include costs associated with surgery like anesthesia, facility, and surgeons fees. Before you start mentally shopping for your new bikini or creating that new Pinterest board, consider the following factors that may affect the price of breast implants:
Some might think that this patient had had previous rhinoplasty with tip collapse, but she did not. Occasionally, the shape of the tip cartilages is very vertically-oriented, causing a deep groove in the nostril. She felt this, along with her marked tip crookedness, drew unwanted attention to her nose. Now, her nose is smaller, smoother, more defined, and just blends with the rest of her face.

1. Is your surgeon a board-certified plastic surgeon by the ABPS? The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only certifying board in Plastic Surgery that is a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties.There are unfortunately quite a few physicians out there making money performing surgeries they have no training or experience to perform. Super low prices and wide open surgery scheduling availability are other bad signs this physician may not be up to standard.
To apply for insurance coverage for a functional rhinoplasty, your surgeon can perform one of several tests. A CT scan shows irregularities within the nose that are not visible to the naked eye. An acoustic rhinometry is a test that maps the inside of a patient's nose. A rhinomanometry tests the level of airflow within the nostrils. In some cases, insurance companies require that patients show that they have attempted to treat nasal obstruction with other treatments. These may include antihistamines, allergy desensitizing injections, and steroid spray.
Chances are good that you know at least one person who’s had a nose job. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that rhinoplasty is the third most popular cosmetic surgery, with more than 200,000 patients opting for the nose procedure every year. Whether it’s right for you depends on a number of factors, including the cosmetic and structural issues you’re looking to change, your budget, and the amount of time you can take off for recovery.
For my patients, I also provide a post-operative packet. This includes arnica and other ointments, gauze and tape, an ice pack, and nasal decongestant spray. If your surgeon does not provide these items to you before or after your surgery, they are all helpful during the healing process. I encourage my patients to get anti-nausea medication for the first few days following surgery as well.
If you don't know what nasal packing is, consider yourself lucky. Nasal packing is gauze placed deep inside the nose, usually to prevent or stop bleeding. Dr Rival uses nasal packing in only about 5% of all his rhinoplasty surgeries. Sometimes in very deviated noses he may place plastic splints inside the nose to maintain a straight septum for 5 to 7 days.

Case 33: For this young woman, the nose felt boxy and unrefined in comparison to her more defined facial features. Goals of rhinoplasty included lifting and definition of the tip along with subtle hump reduction to create a more sleek and streamlined nasal contour. Achievement of these goals creates a nose that harmonizes rather than dominating other features.
4) What technique is used to perform the surgery (although most surgeons charge the same fee regardless of what technique they use, in some cases a premium may be charge when special supplies etc are required to achieve the desired results - for example we use a device called Keller funnel which adds several hundred dollars to the cost of the surgery but the purpose of this device is to keep your scars smaller/shorter and to lower the risk of infection and capsular contracture.  We believe these benefits are well worth the extra cost to our patients.)
Both anesthesiologists and registered nurse anesthetists can administer anesthesia. An anesthesiologist is a specially trained physician who will administer anesthesia and monitor your vital signs during surgery. A registered nurse anesthetist has specialized training to do the same.  However, while a registered nurse's services can cost about $300 per hour, an anesthesiologist's services can cost closer to $500 per hour.
Once your bone and cartilage have been resculpted, your surgeon pulls the skin back down and stitches it along the open-rhinoplasty incision across the columella (the tissue that links the nasal tip to the nasal base). “When done properly, that incision is extremely hard to see, once it’s healed,” says Dr. Miller. With a closed procedure, the incisions are made inside your nostrils, so there’s no visible scarring, and the sutures are usually dissolvable. 
Meeting with multiple prospective surgeons is also a great way to make your choice. Make sure you are comfortable speaking to the surgeon, and make sure he or she asks you plenty of questions, and does not rush you through any part of the consultation. After you have fully described your goals, the surgeon should provide you with informative, thoroughly explained options.
