One of the most pertinent questions that a new patient will have is very simply an economic one: how much will the surgery cost?
Before trying to answer this question, it’s important to look at what actually goes into the total cost of rhinoplasty. This is not necessarily a complete list, but it gives a good idea:
– Surgeon Fee
– Facility Fee
– Anesthesia Fees
– Medical Tests
A surgeon may perform rhinoplasty in an office-based operating suite or in a hospital or outpatient surgery center. At the Naderi Center, Dr. Naderi and Dr. Kulak perform surgery in several area surgery centers and hospitals, including INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital and Northern Virginia Surgery Center in Fairfax, Virginia, as well as Suburban Hospital Surgery Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
Quality in a Rhinoplasty Surgery Has a Price…
Naturally, being one of the best in his field, Dr. Naderi commands a higher price than some other surgeons. Using some of the best medical facilities in the area also comes with a higher price tag, but the benefits to the patient are beyond measure.
As the Naderi Center website points out:
“Do not choose Dr. Naderi if you are seeking a bargain. Choose Dr. Naderi if you want a surgeon who has the specialized skill and high ethics to take excellent care of you or your loved one.”
In a quick survey of sources available on the web, it became clear that there’s also another factor that comes into play – complexity. More complex surgical procedures command a higher price, and not just because there is a need for a more experienced surgeon.
Even within that surgeon’s pricing policy, there will be differences that reflect the transformation that he is being asked to perform. And, it’s not a good idea to turn to a cheaper alternative, as with a lower price point often comes lower quality, or at the very least a mismatch between expectations and results.
Rhinoplasty generally averages $7,000 and $8,000. The cost of rhinoplasty with Dr. Naderi can fluctuate greatly depending on the individual case and complexity, ranging anywhere from $4,500 to $11,000, with that cost including both anesthesia and hospital fees. More complex revision cases are often more costly, ranging anywhere from $9,500 to $20,000 (anesthesia and hospital fees included) for revision surgery with Dr. Naderi.
…Low Quality Also Has a Price
Being a true specialist, a lot of Dr. Naderi’s work is in revision rhinoplasty. This is a secondary procedure that can be used to correct surgery that has been less than successful the first time round, as well as correcting flaws that only become apparent over time.
While no surgery comes with a guarantee of success, there is always the chance that a lower cost procedure will be performed by a less experienced surgeon. If it is a complex piece of surgery, then the risk of complications further down the line is appreciably higher.
The result can be a trip to a more expensive surgeon, such as Dr. Naderi, whose experience in performing revision rhinoplasty is well known. Thus, the lower initial cost may well turn out to be a false economy, especially if the credentials of the surgeon are not verified beforehand. In rhinoplasty, as in life, the old adage often rings true – you get what you pay for.
That applies to the pre-operative care and consultations that lead to high quality surgery using advanced techniques and skills honed over years of practice and teaching, through to post-operative care in a relaxing and attentive environment.
