Updated on January 8, 2013

The number of people electing to have rhinoplasty in the United States is steadily increasing each year. And naturally, one of the first questions people ask, is, "How much does it cost?"

The average cost of a nose job across the United States varies greatly city-to-city. This article will give you a good idea of what the costs for rhinoplasty are likely to be in 10 major U.S. cities.: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Detroit, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, and Columbus.


What the Fees Include

The figures in the chart below reflect everything you will pay for the entire procedure:

  • Surgeon's fees (Board certified surgeon with rhinoplasty experience)
  • Outpatient surgery center
  • Anesthesia


Average Cost of a Nose Job in 10 U.S. Cities

  • New York, New York (Manhattan): $14,000

  • Los Angeles, California: $11,500

  • Chicago, Illinois: $9,600

  • Houston, Texas: $8,800

  • Phoenix, Arizona: $10,500

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: $9,000

  • Detroit, Michigan: $7,500

  • Jacksonville, Florida: $6,700

  • Indianapolis, Indiana: $6,800

  • Columbus, Ohio: $8,200


Tips:

  • Keep in mind if you are just getting the tip of your nose done, your surgery could be slightly lower than the prices given. If your rhinoplasty includes breathing correction, then your cost could be higher.
  • In New York City you will find great price variations once you leave the borough of Manhattan. In more middle income areas such as Queens, you could have that $14,000 Manhattan rhinoplasty for $11,000.
  • In general, the more experienced your surgeon is, the more expensive your procedure will be. Do not cut yourself short just because of price.
  • Having your rhinoplasty done in a hospital rather than an outpatient could increase the cost of your surgery by thousands of dollars.
