Am I A Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Men and women are candidates for cosmetic nose surgery. If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your nose and have specific issues you would like to modify or repair, this treatment may be the best option. It is important that you have realistic expectations, as your appearance will be changed. Furthermore, facial growth and maturity should also be complete. This will be addressed during your consultation, especially for those under the age of 21.


Nose surgery is performed while the patient is under sedation, such as general anesthesia, and is generally an outpatient surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical methods, depending on what is being addressed. Dr. Ben Schultz performs rhinoplasty using either an open or closed technique all through well-hidden incisions. The nasal features are repositioned while the skin is re-draped over the newly improved framework. Sutures are positioned either inside the nose or along the natural external crease.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

How much does rhinoplasty cost?
The final cost of rhinoplasty can vary based on which technique is used and the complexity of the procedure. Before estimating costs, Dr. Schultz will listen to your needs and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is done, he can develop a surgery plan that includes what you can expect to pay. To ensure you're satisfied with your results, it's important to focus on selecting an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Schultz, instead of the cheapest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Ben Schultz, M.D. accepts many payment methods, and our office can help you find low-interest financing.

Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?
While cosmetic rhinoplasty is typically not covered by insurance, if your nose reshaping surgery is considered medically necessary to improve your breathing, some of your costs may be covered. Please tell Dr. Schultz during your consultation if you plan on applying for reimbursement from your insurance provider. Our office will help you submit the needed paperwork and information to your insurance to process your claim.

Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
If you want to smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like Juvéderm or Restylane) may be an option. A filler can temporarily correct minor imperfections on your nose, which might help you decide if you want to proceed with rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and adjusting the internal structure for better function. At your consultation, Dr. Schultz will tell you more about nonsurgical nose reshaping.

What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty is about improving the nose while still keeping your cultural identity. This may be a consideration if you are Asian, African American, or Middle Eastern. During your consultation with Dr. Schultz, you can discuss what you like about your nose and what you want to change. This will allow him to personalize your treatment plan so you get your best results.

Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Many patients think about combining nose surgery with another cosmetic procedure, like chin or cheek augmentation. Having multiple surgeries for a dramatic result can be reviewed during your consultation with Dr. Schultz. Once he understands your concerns and goals, he can help you choose which procedures should be in your custom plan. Rhinoplasty can help your whole face appear more balanced, so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
