How much does a nose job cost?
This is often the first question that people ask when considering nose reshaping surgery, known as rhinoplasty. Whilst price is important to people there are many other questions that you should ask first. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that if done right the first time can last a lifetime if the patient does not incur a traumatic injury and/or abuse their health through the abuse of substances. Conversely, rhinoplasty if not done properly the first time becomes harder and harder to perform as the tissues and structures become increasingly compromised with each procedure.
The first question should not be what does a rhinoplasty cost but what is the experience and expertise of the surgeon.
Dr Hodgkinson is an expert at rhinoplasty surgery having performed well over a thousand in his career. In fact, Dr Hodgkinson has also published on the subject in scientific journals and has been invited to lecture internationally. He is one of only two Australians to be invited as a member of the prestigious international group, The Rhinoplasty Society. Most importantly, his results speak for themselves.
Before and After
When a patient comes in for a consultation with Dr Hodgkinson he is able to assess their breathing at the same time as looking at what is aesthetically possible. With computer imaging, Dr Hodgkinson is able to communicate with the patient about what is surgically possible for them and give them an idea what they might look like after rhinoplasty surgery.
Once Dr Hodgkinson has had an opportunity to assess the patient and communicate with them about what they would like to achieve, the patient will be given a fixed price quotation which is all-inclusive incorporating the surgical fees, the fees for the use of the licensed day surgery and the anaesthetist. Beware of open ended quotes as the hospital fees can sometimes be as much or more than the surgeon’s fees quoted.
