Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “cosmetic nose surgery” by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
The average cost of rhinoplasty is $5,046, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Rhinoplasty surgery costs can vary widely. The average fee referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. A surgeon’s fee will be based on his or her experience and geographic office location.
You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if:
- Your facial growth is complete
- You are physically healthy
- You don’t smoke
- You have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
- If you don’t like the way your nose looks?
During your rhinoplasty recovery, a splint or packing can be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside of your nose to support and protect the new structures during initial healing.
While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year or so for your new nasal contour to fully refine. During this time you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome. Soon enough you will have your new nose!
The results of rhinoplasty surgery may take a long time. While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year for your new nasal contour to fully refine. During the time you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome.

Most of the staff members were very upbeat and kind. Litzy is a wonderful assistant- and the nurses that were with me before and after the surgery were very sweet too. Dr. Cardenas himself is quite witty and being able to joke around with him made it a good experience. I felt very comfortable.
I was highly satisfied overall but there were minor set backs to my experience that made it slightly less than perfect.
Genuine care and concern from all the people in the office and at the surgery center. After surgery, I had to call the office several times and my questions were always answered either by the staff or Dr. Hulbert himself in a timely fashion. I can breath, my nose is not dripping and I am not sniffing constantly. My sleeping has improved and I have been told that I am sleeping very quietly now.
