Rhinoplasty is a highly personal procedure that can affect a person's mental well-being, as well as his or her appearance. Therefore, it is vital that patients choose a surgeon with whom they feel comfortable. They should select a doctor who truly listens to their concerns, answers their questions, and creates a treatment plan that will address their specific goals. Patients should never choose someone who makes unrealistic promises or pressures them to undergo more surgery than they actually want.
Some surgeons prefer to give prospective patients an itemized list of all the anticipated costs of liposuction. These separate costs might include the surgical fee (money paid to the surgeon for his services), anesthesiologist’s fee, operating room fee, pre-operative laboratory test fees, charges for post-operative elastic compression garments, and possibly prices for antibiotics and other recommended drugs. Sometimes itemized prices are used when the surgeon cannot control all of the related expenses, such as when the lipo surgery is to be done in a hospital operating room with a hospital anesthesiologist. Itemized lipo prices are also used by surgeons who are in the habit of doing multiple unrelated surgical procedures at the same time that the liposuction is done.
After surgery, patients should be prepared for the cost of any pain medication they will take during recovery. These costs are not typically included in the overall cost of surgery. At my practice, we provide homeopathic medications as part of our total surgical package. Your surgeon can explain to you any prescription or homeopathic medications you may be prescribed and discuss their cost.
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.
The advantages of a surgical rhinoplasty are many. *One is that once the procedure is completed, the results are phenomenal and you do not have to maintain the results.* *Another advantage is that once paid for, there are no additional costs afterwards.* With a non-surgical nose job, the costs are spread out over time, however, will end up being more expensive in the long run if people pay for it year after year versus paying in full for a surgical rhinoplasty. There are risks involved with any type of surgery and a rhinoplasty is no different. However, choosing a reputable surgeon and well-rated plastic surgery centre will minimize those risks. There is also consideration of the factor of the 7-10 days off of work and your usual daily routine that is recommended to recover from rhinoplasty surgery. However, most nose surgery patients don’t mind the down-time and recovery in exchange for the long-term gains.

It’s important to understand exactly what your doctor’s quote includes. Does the number only include your surgeon’s fee? Or will it cover anesthesia, hospital fees, pre- or post-op appointments, and medications you’ll need throughout your recovery? If your doctor’s estimate doesn’t consider all those costs, be sure to factor them into your budget. Also be sure to ask how your surgeon handles revisions, in case you aren’t happy with your initial results.
If desired, the non-surgical rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time as the initial consultation. The treatment itself takes less than 15 minutes and is very comfortable for the patient. Most injectable filler includes Lidocaine, which is a freezing agent that helps the whole experience become tolerable and easy for the patient. Dr. Torgerson carries only the best in injectable filler products, all of which have a great safety record and are approved by Health Canada. Dr. Torgerson and his patients can decide which dermal filler would best suited for the desired result. Patients can choose between Restylane, Perlane, Teosyal Global, Teosyal Kiss, and Juvederm. These dermal fillers each have benefits that work well for a non-surgical nose job. They are created with Hyaluronic Acid and generally last approximately 1 year in the nose. Because of the temporary nature of an injectable filler, a non-surgical nose job will have to be maintained approximately every 9 months to a year, depending on how fast your body metabolizes the product.
Both open and closed rhinoplasty can be extremely effective. The doctor will determine the right technique for each patient, based on the natural shape of the nose and the goals for surgery. If the patient desires dramatic changes, or if the doctor is performing post-traumatic rhinoplasty, an open technique may work best. This method gives the doctor access to a larger part of the nose. In many cases, it also helps him or her to make small adjustments to the nasal tip. If a patient wants to address the bridge of the nose, closed rhinoplasty may work well. However, because each patient is different, there are no hard and fast rules regarding the "right" procedure to use.
Most board certified plastic surgeons will give discounts if more than one area is addressed at the same time. Be careful when comparing pricing between surgeons. Some surgeons will only give you their fee with the surgery center and anesthesiologist billing you separately. Other surgeons will give you a package price which will include their fee, the surgery center and anesthesiologists fee.
LO adecuado para hacer un presupuesto es examinar a la persona y de esa forma hacer un proyecto quirúrgico, considerando el tipo de liposccion a realizar, tiempo que tomara realizarla, tipo de anestesia , capacidad de la piel para retraer adecuadamente, etc... Puede oscilar entre 7000 a 9000 usd pero con la evaluación se hace el verdadero presupuesto.
Dr. S. Valentine Fernandes, the Conjoint Senior Clinical Lecturer, at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Newcastle University, conducted a comprehensive study about the risks of rhinoplasty. According to Fernandes, the complication rate of nose surgery falls between 4 and 18.8 percent. While this may seem an alarming number, Fernandes reports that there is a much lower 1.7 to 5 percent risk of life threatening complications. He also notes that the complication rate falls in proportion to the doctor's surgical experience.
You can also ask to see before and after photos and testimonials from past patients. In addition to making sure your surgeon is highly experienced, you should feel comfortable talking to him or her. Do you feel the surgeon is hearing you and understanding your goals for the procedure? Establishing a rapport with the surgeon is extremely important to ensure that you get the results you want.
Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most expensive choice, If the initial cosmetic results are so bad that another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon. Among the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3) irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction. Caveat emptor (Buyer beware).
Liposuction is often called "liposculpture" because when it is performed by an experienced surgeon such as Dr. Weinberg, the technique is used to sculpt the contoured appearance patients want. Liposuction is often performed along with other cosmetic surgery procedures to fine-tune the results. Dr. Weinberg commonly combines liposuction with the following procedures:
