What is the monetary value of changes in attractiveness achieved through rhinoplasty, as perceived by society? Researchers posed this question in a study published recently in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.
To aid them in answering this question, Researchers performed a cross-sectional survey administered via public online forums to 228 casual observers.
Survey results suggest that there is an association, according to the researchers.
For one standard deviation increase in attractiveness, a rhinoplasty was valued at $6123.75, and for two standard deviations increase in attractiveness, it was valued at $9223.05.
Findings thus suggest contingent valuation, or willingness to pay, to be a well-established economic concept that could be used for the valuation of cosmetic facial procedures.

This so-called contingent valuation gave us a clear understanding of the economic powers that determine the price of cosmetic procedures like nose jobs or Rhinoplasty. Meaning if your desire to look gorgeous can only be resolved through the procedure (based on your personal standards) then the price is right. Thank you for this Amazing blog, it really got me thinking.
Either way, people who are interested in investing this much on appearance have to do the research first to make sure they get the best desirable results.
