Rhinoplasty Prices In South Africa

 Most simple nose corrections and refinements cost about R50 000 (all-inclusive). If you want a ‘nasal tip’ or an advanced aesthetic refinement, or a revision, the cost will rise against the time it takes, and the complexity of the surgery.

How long does a rhinoplasty last?

While some cosmetic procedures require an upgrade after several or more years, this is not true of a rhinoplasty. A good rhinoplasty will last you a lifetime, so it is important to choose the right surgeon.

Can you breathe after a nose job?

On average, patients can expect breathing through the nose after rhinoplasty to feel more comfortable after 1 – 3 weeks, though some patients may have a feeling of nasal congestion for several months.

Does rhinoplasty leave a scar?

While rhinoplasty scarring can occur, scars from a rhinoplasty are typically minimal and barely visible. Rhinoplasty scarring usually occurs on the columella (the part of the nose that separates the nostrils), which means it is usually not visible.
