Rhinoplasty is the medical term used to describe the surgical reshaping of the nose, generally for cosmetic purposes. While a large percentage of patients opt to undergo rhinoplasty, or a nose job, to address aesthetic concerns such as size or shape of their nose, patients also seek nose surgery to correct a deformity caused by a nasal injury which is referred to as reconstructive rhinoplasty. In addition, patients who hope to straighten their nose while also correcting breathing problems frequently request nose surgery.
Reason For Undergoing Rhinoplasty
Because rhinoplasty is an elective cosmetic surgery procedure, it is not covered by OHIP or most private insurance plans. However, in the event that reconstructive rhinoplasty is required due to a nasal injury, an application for full OHIP coverage can be submitted. In addition, the Ministry of Health may cover a portion of the procedure for patients who experience breathing problems and require septoplasty or turbinate reduction. In some cases, OHIP will cover septorhinoplasty to straighten a deviated nose, whether it is caused by trauma or present at birth.
At the Solomon Nasal and Facial Plastic Surgery Centre in Thornhill, just north of Toronto, we understand that the cost associated with rhinoplasty can deter many patients, as elective or purely cosmetic rhinoplasty starts at $7700, while if eligible, the cost of cosmetic rhinoplasty combined with OHIP begins at $7000.
However, we strongly believe that your aesthetic goals should not be put off as a result of financial constraints, which is why we are proud to offer a third party financing service, enabling patients to gradually pay for their procedure in small, manageable increments. This investment in your future aesthetic can have a tremendous impact on your health, wellness, confidence, and overall outlook on life.

One of the best ways to predict aesthetic results of your rhinoplasty is computer imaging, which can provide patients with a simulated image of the potential outcome of the procedure. At your request,, Dr. Solomon, a renowned rhinoplasty surgeon in Toronto, will use advanced computer imaging during your consultation to enable you to ‘try on’ a different shaped nose.. While computer imaging can provide you with an approximation of your surgical results, the exact outcome cannot be guaranteed.
