Question: Does the cost of rhinoplasty in Toronto vary according to how much you do? For instance, if I only want minor changes, will this cost less than someone who has minor changes done?
Answer: The cost of rhinoplasty is a frequent concern of patients. The price of the surgery varies with many factors. There are certain factors based on the procedure itself and there may be certain factors based on the community where your procedure is performed. For example, rhinoplasty surgery performed in a very affluent neighborhood may cost more than a rhinoplasty performed in another neighborhood, perhaps due to the overhead cost of the surgeon in office rent and office expenses. Part of the rhinoplasty cost is also due to the procedure; the longer the procedure, the more the operative time required and the more anesthetic per time required and these will cost more. It’s very difficult to use the term major and minor changes. Patients may consider a change minor; however achieving this result that the patient wants may require significant surgery and planning. Also, the patient may desire a certain aesthetic result and what they think is needed to obtain this aesthetic result may not be accurate and, in fact, it may be much more complicated to achieve this mainly “minor result”. It is more important to consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who can give you a complete evaluation and determine what the most effective way is to achieve the aesthetic goals that you desire.
