Rhinoplasty Surgery by Dr. Laguna in Orange County, California
25-year-old patient with pronounced nasal tip and wide bridge.
Corrected with open rhinoplasty.
By virtue of being located in the middle of the face, the nose significantly affects your facial appeal. An appropriately shaped and sized nose will maintain facial balance and bring attention to your facial features including your eyes, cheeks, and lips.
The most common nasal concerns include:
- A prominent or wide nasal hump
- A poorly defined or large nasal tip
A prominent nasal hump can make your nose look like a parrot’s beak especially when viewed from the side as seen on lateral, i.e. profile, photographs. A generous nasal tip will be more distracting when viewed from the front and can detract others from appreciating your facial attributes.
When you consider rhinoplasty, it is critical to consider whether you want your hump reduced only or whether you want the tip and/or the entire nose redone.
For patients who just want the hump addressed, then a closed rhinoplasty will suffice. For those needing nasal tip refinement or desiring improvement of the entire nasal contour, then an open rhinoplasty procedure is recommended.
The difference between closed versus open rhinoplasty is significant with respect to operative techniques, operative times, and subsequently cost. Whereas the closed rhinoplasty can be performed in an hour, the open rhinoplasty requires two to three hours.
During your consultation with Dr. Mowlavi, you will have the opportunity to share your concerns, preview what your nose is going to look like using morphing technology, and to review which of the nasal surgeries, open versus close, will be the best option for you.
How Much Does Nose Surgery Cost?
The average cost of closed rhinoplasty is approximately $7,000 to $9,000 depending on whether you will also require functional improvements such as correction of a deviated septum or reduction of enlarged inferior turbinates.
The average cost of an open rhinoplasty surgery ranges between $10,000 to $15,000 depending on how much infrastructural support measures are required such as the need for rib grafting.

The patient had a correction of severe nasal deformity with significant nasal dorsal deviation and nasal tip droop resulting in difficulty breathing. Upward rotation of the patient’s nasal tip has allowed for correction of her nasal tip droop which has improved not only her appearance but also breathing.
