How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?

The cost of rhinoplasty typically falls somewhere between $6,500 and $15,000 *, depending on the nature of your procedure and other factors, such as operating room costs. Each patient is different, and there's no way to offer a concrete estimate without an in‐person consultation. After yours, a member of our staff provides you with a written quote that reflects the details you discussed with Dr. Chaboki. You can learn more about the costs associated with plastic surgery on our Fees & Financing page.

Incisionless Rhinoplasty

Also known as endonasal (closed) rhinoplasty, incisionless rhinoplasty hides small incisions inside the nose and offers several advantages:

  • No external incisions
  • Less swelling
  • Less numbness

While each case is different and requires a unique treatment plan, incisionless rhinoplasty can be used under a wide variety of circumstances from the most simple to the most difficult. Dr. Chaboki offers his patients, who visit him from areas like Northern Virginia and Maryland, both open rhinoplasty and incisionless rhinoplasty procedures and will help determine the most appropriate method for his patients. Rhinoplasty, even when performed for cosmetic reasons, should avoid decreasing nasal function. It would be inappropriate to get a cosmetically improved nose if you are unable breathe through it. For this reason, it's important to choose a surgeon with an artistic eye and sound medical experience.

Functional vs. Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, when performed along with a septoplasty, turbinate surgery, or sinus surgery is often called functional rhinoplasty. A facial plastic surgeon in Washington, DC, Dr. Chaboki performs functional rhinoplasty primarily to restore nasal function, breathing and airflow.

Dr. Chaboki has specialized training in the anatomy, physiology, and cosmetic aspect of the nose. His expertise on both the internal and external nose will help to improve the appearance of your nose and, at the same time, treat your sinus nasal symptoms of allergy, nasal obstruction, snoring, nasal congestion, sinusitis, and post nasal drip. He performs minimally invasive rhinoplasty, functional rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, deviated septum surgery, turbinate reduction surgery, and endoscopic sinus surgery.

Nasal Implants

Building up the bridge of the nose is a popular request for some rhinoplasty patients. Asian or African-American rhinoplasty patients may have a flatter nose and request some form of nasal augmentation. Patients with traumatic nasal injuries may have a collapsed bridge or "saddle nose." Nasal implants are placed via smalls incisions hidden inside the nose. Nasal augmentation with implants is an outpatient procedure with a short recovery time.

A more temporary method for facial augmentation is with injectable fillers such as Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Sculptra® and RADIESSE®. These fillers must be repeated for continued results, but they are conveniently performed right in Dr. Chaboki's office and require little to no downtime.
