In short, I have always wanted a rhinoplasty. I have a bump on my nose and I'd love to get it sort. It's not making it impossible to breath or anything like that.

I see some prices ranging from a few thousand to way past $10,000. One of them is seriously doable, the other is not even close.

I was wondering if I am wasting a doctors time by doing this? I know some people can go in and have whatever cash they need on hand, but I am not one of those people. I can only afford it at the lower end.


This may seem quite trivial, but I'd hate to go in, have them tell me a high price and then let them go on for an hour without knowing I won't even be a client.

I suggest you call and ask about the average cost at each Dr. A few years ago I wanted Breast enhancement, many years earlier I had breast reduction, Long story but point is it took me 8 doctors to find the right one. It was a horrible experience as several of them were just plain nasty to me.
Hopefully you won't have such problems but you do want to interview doctors till you find one you are in agreement with and that you can afford. There are also companies that offer financing for plastic surgery, most of the doctors can put you in touch with them in case you want to go that route.
Good luck.

OP: I don't think you are wasting a doctor's time, ask for a free consult. Maybe they do that anyway, I don't know. But depending on how big a job it would be for your nose, make sure a good doctor is consulted. I had a "bump" taken off about 45 yrs ago and it was a great job. Back then my employer insurance covered the work as I recall...long time ago.

Many with larger noses with a bump are very attractive people regardless.

But for me back then, I wanted it done. I'm a female.

Most plastic surgeons charge for consultations. They often will apply that payment to the cost of the procedure.

Are you asking for a free consultation or responding to an offer of free consultations? Chances are, the doc only needs one or two potential patients to decide on an expensive procedure for such offers to pay off. Its probably a little more likely you will end up going ahead with a procedure if you act on your wish, have the consult and hear how routine and doable the procedure is. The more you visualize it the more "real" and attainable it will get. Part of it is human nature. Part is probably salesmanship. But hey, if its right for you, its right for you.

If you want to go through with it please find a board certified plastic surgeon.
