Surgical Rhinoplasty

… Permanent Reshaping of the Nose!

Surgical Rhinoplasty is a very popular procedure because it permanently reshapes the nose. Moreover, if there are also any associated nasal breathing difficulties, these can be corrected at the same time.

By correcting the deformities and restoring the nose to a normal  appearance, self-consciousness is removed and self-image and self-confidence greatly improve.

Surgical Rhinoplasty can correct nasal deformities irrespective of whether they are the result of a birth deformity or injury.

Common Rhinoplasty corrections include:

  • Removing a nasal hump
  • Improving the shape of the tip
  • Changing the shape of the bridge
  • Increasing or decreasing the overall size of the nose
  • Correcting asymmetry
  • Straightening a crooked nose
  • Repairing damage caused by injury
  • Correcting birth defects

A Rhinoplasty can also be combined with a Septoplasty, then called a Rhino-Septoplasty, if you have a deviated nasal septum that is causing you difficulty breathing through your nose.

At Sydney Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic, Surgical Rhinoplasty is performed by our Australian-trained, female Plastic Surgeon.

What are the costs?

The total cost of your procedure is made up of each of the following individual costs:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anaesthetist’s fee
  • Hospital costs
  • Medications

Our Plastic Surgeon will give you an accurate cost estimate at your initial consultation.

 Is Rhinoplasty eligible for a Medicare rebate?

Surgical Rhinoplasty is not eligible for a Medicare rebate if it is done purely for cosmetic reasons. However, if you also have difficulty breathing through your nose, you will be able to claim part of your Surgical and Anaesthetic fees through Medicare.  If you do qualify for a Medicare Rebate, and you also have Private Hospital Insurance, a variable portion of the Hospital Fees can also be claimed depending on your Fund and your level of Cover.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
