Cost of Rhinoplasty in Detroit and Southeast Michigan in 2023

Are you unhappy with the shape, size, or function of your nose? If so, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty, also known as a "nose job". Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that can enhance your facial harmony and improve your breathing by altering the structure of your nose.  Many of our patients are interested in the cost of rhinoplasty in Detroit and Southeast Michigan.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the metro-Detroit area, but it is also one of the most complex and customized. Therefore, the cost of rhinoplasty in 2023 can vary widely depending on several factors.


  • Rhinoplasty Costs:
    $6,199 - $7,087
  • Anesthesia/Facility Fees:
    $2,400 - $5,000

*Note: Total Cost = Procedure + Anesthesia/Facility

One of the biggest factors that can impact cost is whether medical insurance may be used to pay for a portion of the cost of surgery.  Medical insurance does not typically cover any costs related to cosmetic surgery, but in some cases medical insurance may cover a portion of the cost of rhinoplasty if it is required to help a patient improve nasal breathing.  Additional things that may impact the cost of having a rhinoplasty surgery in the Detroit area include:

  • The experience and credentials of the plastic surgeon
  • The type and extent of the surgery
  • The anesthesia and facility fees
  • The pre- and post-operative care
  • The medications and supplies

There is not a central database for costs paid by patients for cosmetic procedures, so to determine average costs patients must rely on two primary sources:

  1. Costs self-reported on the internet
  2. Pricing reported by surgeon groups

This is lower than the national average of $7,975, based on 17,957 reviews. However, these costs are only estimates and may not reflect the actual price of surgery.  Furthermore, these are self-reported from people on the internet, and may not be accurate in 2023.

Surgeon Reported Costs of Rhinoplasty in 2023

Surgeon-reported pricing for 2023 hasn't yet been reported, but we can calculate the expected costs of a cosmetic rhinoplasty in Michigan in 2023.  Given inflation in the United States between 2020 and 2023, the cost is expected to have increased nationally from $5,483 in 2020, to $6,502 in 2023.
