Revision rhinoplasty cost has traditionally been more expensive that primary rhinoplasty fees. This is because revising primary rhinoplasty maneuvers and then redoing them intuitively requires more operative time. In addition, the skill required for revision rhinoplasties is more advanced and calls for a rhinoplasty expert and not just a regular surgeon. Furthermore, until recently, often harvest of rib cartilage graft was routinely required resulting in additional operative times.
Thanks to organ donated tissue advancements, today, organ donated rib cartilage grafts are available for purchase. This advancement has resulted in significant reduction in rhinoplasty surgery fees as well as reduction in recovery periods. Revision rhinoplasty cost is most affected by the operative times required to correct the nasal contour concerns. Infrequently, smaller nasal contour corrections are required that can be performed in the office setting thus saving you thousands of dollars. Alternatively, small areas of contour irregularities may also be corrected using long lasting fillers, i.e. non-invasive rhinoplasty, which will save you even more money.
