How much will you end up paying for rhinoplasty/septoplasty/anesthesia/hospital fees?
I'm also curious if you considered consulting with Dr. Portuese in your area and how you felt about him.
I will check to make sure that I understood Dr Naficy's quote correctly. The rhinoplasty was quoted at 7,250, facility fee 1,800 and anesthesia 700.
I also had a consult with Dr. Young who is also in Bellevue. He quoted his rhinoplasty at 7,000 and 1,800 for the anesthesia. I am assuming that cost also includes the facility fee.
My next visit will be to Dr. Portuese. I've heard his costs are more reasonable and that he has considerable experience with rhinoplasty. I cant say that I am particularly impressed by his photos. He is clearly very skilled at reconstructive surgery, but it seems to me that his noses look the same. I dont want a cookie cutter nose -it has to fit my face. I've got a big ol' European nose and a baby face. The two just dont make sense.
