A Nose Job for Less

Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is not the most expensive form of plastic surgery, but it is definitely going to set you back more than just your standard insurance co pay. Rhinoplasty is pricey, and many patients are forced to wait until they have raised to funds to pay for the surgery in advance. Fortunately, there are some ways to reduce the cost of plastic surgery at least.

Travel for Rhinoplasty

If you’re willing and able to take a trip, you can not only see the sights of another country, but also have inexpensive surgery performed while you’re away. Surgeons in other countries have often trained in the same hospitals and surgery centers as their American counterparts, but they simply practice in other countries. Many of these surgeons are just as experienced as their American counterparts, but simply have lower overhead in their practice.

If you’re able to travel to these surgeons, their overhead costs are greatly reduced, making the surgery overall far less expensive as well. Often patients who travel for rhinoplasty are able to take advantage of luxury recovery centers and spa services as well while away, relaxing and spending a few weeks recovering with full service before returning home again.

Rhinoplasty in the Off Season

Another option for discount rhinoplasty procedures is to wait until it’s not as convenient to have the surgery. Most plastic surgery procedures are performed over the winter holidays when there is a great deal of vacation time to use for recovery. If you’re willing to have your surgery in an odd time like September or April, you may be able to arrange slightly more flexible payments.
