    Sorry to thread jack, can anyone tell me a ball park cost for this?

    I would love to be able to breathe through my nose.

    I've heard that revision rhinoplasty isn't as bad...

    Is it just for a deviated septum or for cosmetic reasons as well?
    If its for a devised septum, Medicare would pay a chunk of it.

    I just want to add... Arnica!!!! Start on arnica tablets 2-3 weeks before surgery. Arnica and berocca, or some kind of vitamin c and Zinc drink.

    I've never seen a specialist but I think that's what I have. I just can't get a whole breath in through my nose. I'm forever breathing through my mouth otherwise I feel like I'm suffocating.

    Wow, if Medicare contributes I would be soooooo happy.

    I had one when I also had my tonsils removed. They had to grind down some bumps from an injury years earlier and a few things at the front.

    Removing the packing hurt. Didn't bleed that much. Pain was actually really mild (much less pain then the tonsillectomy) I guess I worried about my throat more. I was also on some fairly heavy Meds. Bruising was terrible. I had to put cream up there which was tender.

    All in all it really wasn't to bad at all and I could quite easily do the nose part again if I had too.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much out of pocket might I be looking at?

    Do I see an ENT or a plastic surgeon?

    If its for your breathing, an ENT specialist. If people get their nose done for cosmetic reasons, they should see an ENT specialist who also specializes in facial plastic surgery. Two in one means better results.
    I'm not quite sure how much you'd be out of pocket.. You could always call different places and get an estimated price.
