Will insurance help pay rhinoplasty if I have breathing problems from a broken nose?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 18 May 2012


I broke my nose 15 years ago as a young male. Now, I am having more complications from it.

How much does rhinoplasty usually cost?

Will insurance help pay if it's restricting my breathing?


Post traumatic changes in the nose can be related to deviation of the nasal septum, or more significant alterations if the trauma is substantial.

By and large, insurance policies tend to cover the aspects related to improvement of the nasal airway, but not related to the appearance of the nose.
