While the cost of a rhinoplasty in Toronto varies according to the particular areas of the nose you would like to alter, pricing generally starts from $10,999 (for a tip-plasty). A standard reduction rhinoplasty of the bridge, tip, and nostrils is $13,999. However, if you have already received a nose job from another surgeon and are unsatisfied with the results, the SpaMedica team may perform a revision rhinoplasty for $17,999.
Your swelling will have improved significantly, and the final results will reveal themselves around the 6-week mark.
A traditional rhinoplasty usually takes 1-3 hours, but the length of your procedure will vary depending on the treatment you’re receiving, the severity of your concerns, and your aesthetic goals. It is best to consult with the SpaMedica team to understand the details before, during, and after your procedure.
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a surgical procedure aimed at changing the shape, size, or structure of your nose. It is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery and can significantly impact your facial appearance and self-confidence.
You are an ideal candidate for nose surgery if:
If you believe that your nose is larger than you’d like it to be, has a hump on the bridge, has a drooping top, or has overly wide nostrils that you want to correct to achieve full facial symmetry, contact the SpaMedica team today and book a consultation.
Overwhelmingly, our clients report a significant improvement to their physical and mental wellbeing following nose surgery. Some of the benefits of rhinoplasty they report include:
Although there are very few risks associated with the rhinoplasty procedures performed by Dr. Bell and his team, you should be aware of the following possibilities:
Before your nose surgery, Dr. Bell and his esteemed team of Toronto facial plastic surgeons will review your medical history and discuss your goals during the consultation. You may be recommended to stop taking certain medications before your surgery, drink plenty of liquids, and consume a healthy diet.
You should not get rhinoplasty if you are under fifteen, pregnant, or struggle with cardiovascular problems. Learn more about preparing for your consultation and nose job treatment here.
Dr. Bell, acclaimed as the best rhinoplasty surgeon in Toronto, utilizes advanced surgical techniques to perform both primary rhinoplasty and complex rhinoplasty surgeries. His approach combines the latest in facial cosmetic surgery practices with a deep understanding of the aesthetic needs or patients of varying ethnicities and ages within the Canada region.
Your nose surgery will be performed under anesthesia with IV sedation, which contains adrenaline to minimize bruising and swelling. A small incision will be made to access the bone structure, and Dr. Bell will then make the planned alterations, such as a bridge reduction or nasal tip augmentation. The nostrils may also be narrowed, and airway surgery can be performed to reduce the risk of obstruction.
Everyone’s recovery timeline is different due to various factors, including medical history, the procedure performed, and the severity of your concerns. However, there is a general timeline to follow so you can heal properly and enjoy optimal results as soon as possible.
Day 1: You will experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling that can be managed with cold compresses and oral medication. Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest with your head elevated to promote blood flow.
Day 3: The nose packing and sutures will be removed, allowing you to breathe freely again. If you can, avoid sneezing and laughing as much as possible during your recovery.
Week 1: Your external rhinoplasty scars will heal and be barely visible. You can begin applying makeup lightly and should continue to keep your head elevated for proper blood flow.
Week 3: Swelling and bruising will begin to subside, continuously improving for the next 3 weeks. You can return to work by this point, so long as it does not involve too much strenuous activity.
Week 6: At this point, you will be fully healed or close to fully healed. You can resume strenuous activity, drinking, smoking, swimming, and wearing eyeglasses.
After 6 Months: You will see your visible results after 6 months, and all swelling will have gone down.
In the first few days following a rhinoplasty procedure, patients can expect to go through several stages of recovery. While individual experiences may vary. Generally, the following recovery symptoms are common within the first one to three days following a procedure:
The most noticeable effects are swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes. This is most prominent in the first few days and gradually subsides over the following weeks.
Patients often experience some degree of pain and discomfort, which is usually manageable with prescribed pain medication. The pain is typically more intense in the first few days and diminishes gradually.
Due to swelling and the presence of splints or packing inside the nose, patients often feel congested. This sensation usually improves as the internal swelling goes down.
Patients may experience a feeling of stuffiness or a clogged nose. This is normal and will improve as the internal healing progresses.
It is recommended to avoid strenuous activities and exercises for at least a few weeks to prevent bleeding or increased swelling.
Patients are advised to sleep with their head elevated on pillows to reduce swelling.
Post-operative visits are scheduled to remove any splints or stitches and to check on the healing process. These appointments are crucial for monitoring recovery and addressing any concerns.
The initial healing phase occurs over the first few weeks, but it’s important to remember that complete healing and a settling of the final nose shape of the nose may take up to a year or longer.
Some patients might notice numbness or a change in sensation around the nose, which usually returns to normal as the healing progresses.
It is common to go through a range of emotions post-surgery. Initial disappointment or concern due to swelling and bruising is normal, but as healing progresses, patients typically become more positive about their results.
It’s crucial for patients to follow their surgeon’s specific post-operative instructions and attend all scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
After your rhinoplasty procedure, you will be given detailed aftercare instructions to follow so you can heal fully and quickly, enjoying your beautiful results as soon as possible.
You may need to tape your nose after your rhinoplasty or wear a nasal retainer. You should also avoid swimming, wearing glasses, eating spicy food, and doing anything that could hurt the nose or restrict blood flow during the first few weeks of healing.
Some general guidelines for optimal healing include:
Rhinoplasty, a transformative procedure for reshaping the nose, is available in two primary techniques: open and closed rhinoplasty.
For more details on these procedures, visit our comprehensive guide on open and closed rhinoplasty.
Each of these rhinoplasty types is designed to cater to unique needs, ensuring personalized care and optimal results. Whether seeking aesthetic enhancement or functional improvement, our clinic offers a range of solutions to help you achieve your desired outcome.
To honour your heritage while enhancing your beauty, SpaMedica offers ethnic nose job procedures. These include:
Performed with the intent to define the nasal tip and make changes to the lower bridge.
Performed to address thicker skin, flared nostrils, or flattened bridges. Alterations can be made to the size and width of the nose while still maintaining your natural beauty.
Performed to reduce bumps in the nose and make the bridge of the nose more proportionate with the other features of your face.
Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty may appear similar at first glance, but while rhinoplasty addresses both cosmetic and medical concerns, a septoplasty is performed just to correct medical concerns. Outlined below are the main differences between the two procedures.
|Addresses crooks and bumps in the nose, nasal tip symmetry, dorsal humps, and nose length, along with correcting facial asymmetry and airway concerns to fix breathing.
|Addresses and corrects deviated septums, removes nasal polyps, reduces the turbinate part of the nose, and corrects breathing for improved nose function.
|General anesthesia is administered to reduce any discomfort. A small incision is made to access the bone structure so Dr. Bell can make planned alterations. The nostrils may be reduced/narrowed, and airway surgery may also be performed to prevent airway obstruction after surgery.
|This procedure is performed entirely internally. Dr. Bell will create an incision on the side of your nose and lift the membrane that protects the septum. Your septum’s bone will then be reshaped, and cartilage will be corrected for improved function. This procedure is also performed under general anesthetic.
|Predominantly cosmetic but can be functional to correct breathing.
|Predominantly medical/functional but can result in better symmetry in the face.
|There are five main types of rhinoplasty available: cosmetic rhinoplasty (to improve your outer appearance), liquid rhinoplasty (a non-surgical option), functional rhinoplasty (to correct breathing issues), revision rhinoplasty (to correct concerns created during a primary rhinoplasty), and ethnic rhinoplasty (to create symmetry in the face while still honouring your ethnic heritage and features).
|There are three types of septoplasty available: nasal septoplasty (corrects a deviated septum), turbinate reduction (reduces the internal filtering part of the nose), and nasal polyp removal so the airway is unobstructed. You can get one or all procedures performed.

If you are receiving a rhinoplasty or septoplasty for medical/functional purposes in a medical or clinic setting, it can be covered by OHIP as it concerns your well-being and health.
If you are receiving any nose job procedure for aesthetic purposes, it will not be covered by OHIP.
There is some discomfort associated with rhinoplasty surgery that is reduced due to the administration of anesthesia. You will also feel some discomfort due to swelling and bruising for the first few days after your procedure, but you can reduce this feeling with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medication.
If you have thicker skin, your nose job will require Dr. Bell to add cartilage, instead of removing it, to create the desired definition and contour.
This condition typically applies to younger people or people of particular ethnicities, but skin thickness varies from person to person.
Yes, although rhinoplasty procedures are often considered cosmetic, they can also be performed to correct certain breathing issues, such as those created by a deviated septum.
If you have more severe issues that concern functionality over aesthetics, you may want to consider a septoplasty.
Tip plasty focuses specifically on reshaping the nasal tip, while a rhinoplasty addresses the entire nose structure. During your rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Bell can discuss which option is best suited to your aesthetic goals.
At SpaMedica, Dr. Bell can use computer simulation to selectively adjust areas of the nose without affecting the rest of the face. This way, you know exactly what you are getting during the cosmetic surgery and can work together to understand your aesthetic goals.
You can work with Dr. Bell, board certified plastic surgeon, to create a virtual version of your perfect nose and agree on a course of action to achieve it!
