Dr. Anthony Farole performs rhinoplasties at his facial cosmetic surgery center in Bala Cynwyd, PA. For people who feel that their nose does not match their face, whether in size, shape, or profile, a rhinoplasty can give beautiful customized results that perfectly fit your facial features.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty reshapes and contours the nose through a variety of methods, depending on the patient’s desired end result. Rhinoplasties range from very subtle to dramatic, as Dr. Farole will customize the procedure to meet the patient’s surgical goals.
How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost?
According to the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons, the average rhinoplasty costs $5483. You will find significant differences in this cost based on your location, the skill and experience of the surgeon, and other aspects of the procedure. This cost also does not include the other fees you may incur, including anesthesia and medications.
How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
Dr. Farole may use an open or closed rhinoplasty, depending on the extent of the procedure and the areas he needs to access. In a closed rhinoplasty, the doctor will make incisions inside the nose, whereas with an open rhinoplasty, he will use carefully disguised incisions to access more of the structure of the nose. If you seek dramatic results or a significant change to the shape of your nose, you may require an open rhinoplasty, where more subtle adjustments may use a closed method.

What Types of Rhinoplasty are There?
Rhinoplasties usually improve the appearance of a nose that a patient finds unsatisfying. However, some people seek rhinoplasty because they have trouble breathing through their nose or other nasal issues. Do you need a functional or cosmetic rhinoplasty?
This procedure adjusts the nose to achieve balance and symmetrical appearance for the patient. Insurance will not cover the cost of this cosmetic treatment. Most rhinoplasties fall under this category. However, many people find the results more than worth the cost and consider the results of their rhinoplasty completely worth it.
A functional rhinoplasty can correct a deviated septum, in which the divider in the center of the nose no longer allows even airflow through both nostrils. This can make breathing difficult, and surgery can restore normal airflow. This treatment also corrects septal perforation, where some type of trauma or medical condition has caused an opening in the septum that needs correction. Insurance may cover this treatment if the medical need exists, so discuss with Dr. Faroli during your consultation.
How Long Does Rhinoplasty Last?
Rhinoplasty should be considered permanent. However, if you find yourself unhappy with your results or desire a different outcome, a revision rhinoplasty can adjust changes made in the previous procedure and achieve the look you want. The changes made during a rhinoplasty should let you keep your restructured nose for as long as you want.
Am I a Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
If you feel that your nose does not match your face in size or shape, feel that it looks asymmetrical, or dislike your profile, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. The ideal rhinoplasty candidate is a nonsmoker in overall good health who wishes to improve their nose’s appearance or restore proper functioning.
