Whenever anyone is thinking about the possibility of a rhinoplasty in Toronto, one of the top questions asked is “How much does a rhinoplasty cost?” This is a very relevant question and needs to be considered carefully.
An average rhinoplasty with a nose specialist can range from $7,000 to $9,000. This cost is usually indicative of the facial plastic surgeon’s skill, expertise, training, and experience. In Toronto, Dr. Torgerson is one of the top rhinoplasty experts, having completed over 18 years of post-secondary education and training, including otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, and facial plastic surgery. Not all plastic surgeons performing rhinoplasty are facial plastic surgeons, so it is imperative that patients discern between surgeons who do general plastic surgery (body work such as breast implants and Brazilian butt lifts) and ones who perform facial plastic surgery (dedicated surgery to the head and neck region).
As you make the decision to proceed with rhinoplasty, it is essential to keep three things in mind. The first is never to compromise on quality. This is your face, and it is visible to everyone all of the time, so choosing a Toronto facial plastic surgeon who is excellent is paramount. Secondly, consider the qualifications of your facial plastic surgeon. Do they have experience and a proven record of creating beautiful noses? Lastly, do you connect with the vision and surgical plan that the facial cosmetic surgeon presented to you for the ideal outcome for your nose?
Other factors that can affect the nose surgery cost are items like anaesthesiologist fees, geographical location, and the surgical location (i.e., private surgical centre or hospital setting). Often patients prefer a private surgery centre because of the higher quality of care, attention to detail, and dedicated medical professionals attending to them. A hospital, though cheaper, carries the risk of the elective surgery (such as a nose job) being bumped for something more urgent — especially when there is a limited number of operating rooms. This can be devastating for a patient, especially if precious vacation time has been used to book the 1-week recovery period. Patients who recover in a hospital may not always have the best staff attending to them either, as you are dependent on whatever nurse or anaesthesiologist is booked to be on shift that day to care for you. In a private setting, the staff is carefully selected, specialized, and trained to continuously provide care only for cosmetic surgery patients. The operating rooms in a private cosmetic clinic are also dedicated to the surgeries scheduled that day and cannot be bumped for OHIP cases.
Understandably, nose surgery can be a big investment, and sometimes the nose surgery cost may seem inhibitive. However, rhinoplasty costs can be covered through one of Toronto’s many payment plans and financing companies. There are specific financial lenders who have specialized programs specifically designed to fund cosmetic procedures of all kinds from dermal fillers to Botox to laser treatments, hair transplant, and all types of cosmetic surgery, including rhinoplasty. These lenders offer financial aid at competitive interest rates and can help you accomplish your dream of undergoing rhinoplasty and achieving your new look much sooner than anticipated. Two of these companies are Credit Medical and Medicard.
