How Much Does VivAer® Cost?

The cost of your VivAer® procedure will vary depending on the individualized treatment plan recommended for you and your current health insurance coverage.

What Can I Expect During my VivAer® Procedure?

Your VivAer® procedure will be performed by Dr. Siva Elangovan in our state-of-the-art facility. Prior to your VivAer® procedure, a local anesthetic may be administered to ensure you remain comfortable and calm throughout the entirety of your procedure. Once numb, Dr. Elangovan will carefully place the tip of the VivAer® device inside each nostril. The tip of the device will emit low-level radiofrequency energy that will gently reshape the internal structure of the nose without affecting your nose’s outward appearance. He will repeat this process until the airway is clear and you are able to breathe through your nose freely.

What Can I Expect After my VivAer® Procedure?

Because VivAer® is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, there is no formal downtime or recovery period associated with treatment. Patients report returning back to their normal daily activities including work immediately following their treatment. You’ll be able to feel the results of your VivAer® treatment immediately, with long-term results that continue to improve over time.
