If you have breathing problems, rhinoplasty may be partially covered by insurance. If it is purely for cosmetic reasons, it is unlikely that insurance will cover any of the surgery. However, if you want both functional (breathing or sinus surgery) and cosmetic rhinoplasty, there may be some cost-savings for you. The reason for this is that the insurance company may help pay for part of each of these 3 costs:
Operating Room Fee
Dr. Zoumalan’s office usually gives one total price which estimates what you expect to have to pay out of pocket. If you want the breakdown of the estimate of each part of the Beverly Hills rhinoplasty cost, feel free to ask.
If you need surgery for better breathing at the same time, insurance may help pay for this. Examples of these surgeries are:
Septoplasty, turbinate reduction (turbinoplasty), internal nasal valve repair, repair of nasal stenosis, nasal polyps, sinus disease
The insurance company can help pay these and therefore bring the total price of the rhinoplasty down, sometimes significantly.
