Will my insurance or Medicare cover my nose job?
Only if it’s done for medical reasons — say, to correct a deviated septum, which can cause sleep apnea, leading to a variety of health problems. But if it’s strictly cosmetic, you’ll have to foot the bill yourself.
How many nose jobs are performed every year in the U.S.?
The number is different every year. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that well over 217,000 nose reshaping procedures were done in 2015, about the same number as in 2014.
If I don’t like my nose job, what can I do about it?
If the surgeon is inexperienced, or doesn’t communicate properly with you, you may end up with a result you don’t like. Revision rhinoplasty can be done, but you need to find a very skilled surgeon to do it. You should also wait until about a year after the first surgery to have the second done.
Dr. Sean Freeman is Charlotte’s best rhinoplasty surgeon. He’s been certified by two different surgery boards, the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Since 1988 he has devoted himself entirely to facial plastic surgery, including nose jobs. Many of his patients have already had rhinoplasty done by other surgeons, and come to him for revision rhinoplasty to get the results they really wanted.
