Article Body:
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a "nose job", is one of the most
popular forms of plastic surgery. Used to reconstruct or repair the nose,
rhinoplasty is performed on individuals who wish to change their
appearance, either in subtle or dramatic form, or for those who require
plastic surgery in order to repair damage suffered in an accident.

As is the case with any surgical procedure, including plastic surgery,
there are specific risks of infection and/or complications. Rhinoplasty,
however, typically requires only small incisions and can either be
performed under a local or general anesthetic. The ultimate decision to
undergo plastic surgery involves a number of factors, including the
patient's desire, the physician's recommendation and the complexity of
the surgery.

Understandably, many patients are concerned about their decision to have
plastic surgery. In addition, they may have a lot of questions
surrounding the procedure itself. During the initial surgical
consultation, the patient will likely be invited to view either printed
or computerized images of how plastic surgery may change their
appearance.

One of the greatest hurdles in undergoing plastic surgery is the cost
involved. Depending on the patient's reason for requesting any type of
plastic surgery, including rhinoplasty, insurance policies may or may not
cover the cost associated with the surgery. If plastic surgery is
performed in order to correct injuries resulting from an accident,
insurance companies may be more likely to agree. Depending on the
insurance company, a second opinion by a qualified physician may help to
prove the need for surgery. However, if plastic surgery is requested as
an elected procedure, patients may end up footing the bill.
For patients who will be accepting the financial responsibility for
rhinoplasty, or any other type of plastic surgery, many hospitals offer a
convenient payment plan. Patients will often be directed to the billing
office in order to review the hospital's policy on payment. In almost
every case, the patient will be required to sign an agreement accepting
full financial responsibility for the services. Because the cost of
surgery, the hospital stay and medications can add up quickly, many
physicians will urge plastic surgery candidates to carefully consider
their decision before proceeding. If a payment plan is reached and
hardships later arise causing the patient to miss payments, the hospital
may retain their right to file a civil lawsuit in order to collect a
judgement for the remaining balance due.
