There are many factors to consider when deciding to undergo a nose job, regardless of whether you’re choosing between a traditional rhinoplasty or the less invasive non-surgical nose reshaping. One of the big factors for patients is cost.
If you’ve been doing research into nose jobs, you may have noticed the costs of the cosmetic procedures can vary significantly.
Here, we discuss the difference between the rhinoplasty procedure and a non-surgical rhinoplasty and the costs involved in undergoing a nose job at our Gold Coast cosmetic surgery clinic so you can make an informed decision. After reading you may see why injectable nose jobs are one of our most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the Gold Coast.
The difference between surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty
A traditional rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to correct the size, shape, profile and width of the nose. The nose surgery can reshape the nasal tip, correct asymmetry or reduce the size of the nose so that is in proportion to the rest of your facial features.
Rhinoplasty is a more invasive procedure than a non-surgical nose job as it is performed under general anesthesia in a hospital. The procedure requires more downtime and may result in persisting swelling and bruising for several weeks. At Cosmos Clinic, the rhinoplasty procedure is only available in Sydney and Coffs Harbour.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as an “injectable nose job”, is performed at all our cosmetic clinics, including on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, QLD.
The cosmetic procedure uses injectable dermal fillers to reshape, define and enhance the appearance of the nose. It can correct a crooked or flat bridge of the nose, disguise bumps and indentations or refine your shape to create a more desirable facial profile.
The benefits of undergoing an “injectable nose job” using dermal fillers include:
- Immediate results
- Fewer side-effects
- Reduced downtime
- Minimal pain & discomfort
- No anesthesia required
- Extremely precise
- Stuble refinements are possible
What is the cost of a non-surgical nose job?
Just like any cosmetic or surgical procedure, the cost of an injectable nose reshaping treatment depends on the shape of the nose and the contouring required as well as your overall expectations.
All patients considering a nose reshaping attend an initial consultation with a cosmetic doctor or nurse injector to discuss their desires for the cosmetic procedure and what’s involved. The cost of this initial consultation is between $120 – $150 and is redeemable if you choose to proceed with the treatment.
The cost of the actual dermal filler nose job starts from $700.
How does the cost compare to a traditional rhinoplasty?
As a surgical rhinoplasty treatment is more invasive, requiring hospitalisation and general anaesthetic, the cost is much greater.
The total cost of a rhinoplasty in Australia on average ranges between $8,000 – $20,000 depending on the extent of the patient’s individual requirements. Where there is a medical need for plastic surgery, the procedure may be partially covered by Medicare or private health insurance.
