Financing Rhinoplasty Costs
For residents of Ontario, functional problems requiring Rhinoplasty surgery are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) (Please see Appendix D 15 – PDF). These problems include difficulty breathing through the nose, and less commonly, surgically correctable nose bleeds, perforations of the internal nose and/or nose crusting. The surgery is all internal. Although very uncommon, there may be improvement in the nasal appearance. This is a very fortunate side effect when it does occasionally happen.
Cosmetic Rhinoplasty surgery and non-surgical injection Rhinoplasty are not covered by OHIP or by private health insurance. The cost of primary Rhinoplasty starts at $10000, but can increase to $11,000 when the surgery is complex. If the Rhinoplasty surgery is a revision, the cost starts at $12,000 and can reach $24,000, if many cartilage grafts are required. The cost of Rhinoplasty is a factor of the surgical time. A simple Rhinoplasty takes an average of 3 hours and costs $10000, while a complex rebuilding of a badly damaged nose requiring rib cartilage can last all day (more than 7 hours) and reach $24,000. A quote for rhinoplasty will be honored for one year.
There are businesses providing medical loans for cosmetic Rhinoplasty. You can access the application forms online at: www.medicard.com.
Consultation Fee and Deposit
There is a cosmetic consultation fee of $225. If the surgery is booked (but not necessarily performed) within a year of the consultation, the consult fee is deducted from the cost of surgery. The quote for rhinoplasty will be honoured for one year. A $2,000.00 non refundable deposit is required at the time of booking the date for rhinoplasty surgery. The balance of the rhinoplasty costs are due one month before cosmetic nose surgery.
