You’ve decided to improve your look with a rhinoplasty. Cost is a determining factor, yet this is one of the most popular facial cosmetic surgeries in the world. The cost of rhinoplasty in Toronto can run anywhere between $9,000 and $14,000. The average cost is approximately $10,000 + HST. (All prices are subject to change.) A consultation for a rhinoplasty with Dr. Cory Torgerson, experienced facial plastic surgeon, is complimentary.
Dr. Torgerson believes in providing detailed and personalized information to help each client choose what’s best for them without any strings attached. During your consultation, there are critical questions that you need to ask to be sure that you’re making the right investment for you. No matter which facial surgeon you meet with, here’s the key things you need to know before you proceed:
Rhinoplasty cost – Is the facial surgeon a factor?
The expert you choose certainly plays a key role when calculating cost. Rhinoplasty planning should begin with finding an experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in nasal surgery. Though many types and specialties for cosmetic and plastic surgery exist, the one you need for this complex procedure is a rhinoplasty surgeon.
Dr. Torgerson’s rhinoplasty acumen has earned him nation-wide favour as both a surgeon and educator. One of the most critical value points in your rhinoplasty cost is the skill and experience of your surgeon. In the world of cosmetic surgery, you do get what you pay for. Dr. Torgerson’s rhinoplasty expertise and 18 years of post-secondary education make him an otolaryngology, head and neck, and facial plastic surgery leader. This type of precision and attention to minute detail will pay off for a lifetime, so don’t settle for an inexperienced surgeon when it comes to your nose.
Facial Plastic Surgeon Reputation
In Toronto, rhinoplasty reviews rank Dr. Torgerson among the best for patient satisfaction. People planning rhinoplasty in Mississauga, Hamilton, Oakville, and the surrounding areas seek out his expertise. Be sure to ask what procedures your surgeon focuses on and note what their patient reviews are saying. You should see rhinoplasty before and after photos, along with nose job reviews that are consistently favourable.
Your surgeon should offer you a comprehensive private consultation where your goals and expected outcomes will be discussed. It’s essential that you meet your surgeon in person, not online or through a representative. Measurements and photos will be taken, your health history reviewed, and together you will explore the potential surgical treatment that can get you to your goals. Your rhinoplasty cost will be reflective of the focused experience and reputation that your surgeon has along with the details of the procedure you choose.
Do different techniques affect the cost for nose jobs in Toronto?
You’ve searched through Toronto rhinoplasty before and after photos, but you might have noticed it’s hard to tell what type of techniques and methods were used for each patient. Just how many different types of rhinoplasty are available? We’re glad you asked.
The price of rhinoplasty depends upon a few key factors and the procedure method is a major one. The degree of difficulty or challenge your rhinoplasty poses also plays a vital role in determining your fees.
Revision Rhinoplasty Cost
If the patient is having a revision surgery — a second procedure to correct previous issues — it’s known to be more challenging. A patient can expect to be in the operating theatre for a longer period. The possible lack of cartilage and presence of scar tissue can impact the complexity and thus the length of your surgery.
In addition to Other Facial Treatments
Facelift or chin augmentation patients often factor in the cost of rhinoplasty to their makeover. This procedure, combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and other surgical improvements, can significantly enhance the overall post-surgical appearance. Combining various facial surgeries prolongs the operating time and may increase recovery time a little.
This is a broad term that covers numerous ethnicities and aesthetic goals, but generally means that improvements are made without diminishing the distinctive characteristics inherent to a person’s heritage. In Toronto, ethnic rhinoplasty is popular among its diverse population. People of all ethnic backgrounds desire the refinement of their appearance through rhinoplasty, but they don’t all desire the same nose.
Dr. Torgerson’s rhinoplasty expertise extends to significant experience with natural-looking ethnic nose jobs. His patients seeking Persian rhinoplasty in Toronto may be looking for a nose job that provides a more balanced and proportionate appearance. Those planning Asian rhinoplasty may want additive bridge-building enhancements. Another procedure common to some ethnic groups is an alar base reduction. This surgery is performed by making a small incision inside the nostril and removing a wedge of skin. Not only does this create a reduced nostril size, but it can also decrease the appearance of a large nasal tip. In Toronto, with this closed rhinoplasty method, the patient can expect to leave the clinic with no visible scarring, which makes for a delighted client.
Because of the diversity of culture among his clientele, Dr. Torgerson has extensive experience working with different ethnicities and fulfilling a wide range of aesthetic preferences. Each person’s unique goals and anatomy allow for a completely customized, one-of-a-kind result.
A common choice to improve breathing, the term refers to a combination of both a rhinoplasty and septoplasty. Septoplasty repairs obstructive, crooked nasal septums and allows patients to breathe freely. On its own, no changes to the nose appearance are intended; however, septoplasty is often combined with some visible enhancements too. In many cases, health insurance benefits will cover the price of a septoplasty when it is deemed a health-related issue. Your general health practitioner must diagnose a deviated septum for the procedure to be covered. Even though the patient still incurs fees for the rhinoplasty portion, it is an ideal opportunity to have both methods completed at the same time.
How long is a rhinoplasty operation?
The cost of rhinoplasty in Toronto considers not only the surgeon’s fees, but also the surgical site fees and the licenced anesthesiologist. Whether in a private clinic or public hospital setting, your surgical team will consist of several highly trained, licenced medical staff. Rhinoplasty is typically done under general anaesthetic, which means that the anaesthesiologist has a vital responsibility for your safety and is present throughout the surgery. You can feel free to ask your facial surgeon who will be present and what their qualifications are. In some clinics, these services are included in the overall rhinoplasty cost, while others charge separately for individual services. This is an important conversation to have during your initial private consultation.
Are there non-surgical alternatives to avoid high rhinoplasty costs?
The best rhinoplasty surgeons will offer a variety of options and possibilities to help you reach your goals. Not everyone is a good candidate for facial cosmetic surgery, and it’s not always the best approach. Though non-surgical nose jobs are temporary, for a certain type of patient, they’re quite ideal. Injectable rhinoplasty costs considerably less at $700 to $900 per syringe on average.
In Toronto, nose fillers are commonly used to correct the appearance of a dorsal bump or to widen the bridge on the nose. They can also instantly refine or upturn the tip and create the illusion of a straighter nose. The benefits of this injectable treatment can be seen immediately, and they last roughly 9 months. The best part is that no downtime is needed. Because the treatment is done quickly in office, no operating fees or general anaesthetic are required.
Patients often start with a non-surgical procedure to see if they like the changes before choosing surgery. Alternately, if all you desire is a small fix, the less invasive route might be the lower risk choice that suits you best.
Are there payment plans for rhinoplasty?
The cost of rhinoplasty may be too significant for some people to pay all at once. The ability to spread out payments conveniently allows them to have the surgical improvements they want now and pay for the procedure over a longer period. Cosmetic procedures can be financed through medical financing companies who work with your surgeon’s practice. Approval is typically fast — within 24 hours. Some of these lenders offer highly competitive rates, allowing the patient to realize their dream of having their cosmetic surgery finally. Two such companies include Credit Medical and Medicard. Just ask our team members about this convenient option when you visit.
