Factors Influencing Chin Augmentation Procedure Costs
Costs of a chin augmentation plastic surgery can vary between two patients seeking the treatment, whether at different practices, or sometimes even by the same plastic surgeon at the same practice. This is because the procedure depends on several factors, including the size and customizations of the implants.
Here are a few factors that may influence the overall cost of chin augmentation and implants cosmetic surgery:
Location of the practice is one of the key factors that determine cost. Cost of living plays an integral role on everything, including healthcare and cosmetic procedures. Whether you get the procedure in a small town or a metropolitan will have a major say on the price factor. Treatments at newer facilities with state-of-the-art technology tend to cost more.
Cosmetic surgeon’s fee makes for a significant portion of the chin augmentation procedure cost. This fee varies according to the plastic surgeon’s expertise and skills. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it recommended to find the best plastic surgeon for your procedure regardless of the costs involved. Fee should never be a primary consideration, which is reserved for service quality.
Cost of anesthesia
Chin augmentation surgery is generally performed under general anesthesia. This results in an added expense by way of the anesthesiologist fee. Again, the fee will depend greatly on the anesthesiologist’s professional credentials, individual expertise and skills.
Features of the chin implant
Chin implants can be horizontal, vertical, or square in shape depending on your unique requirements. The appearance of individual implants depends greatly on the type of material used.
Silicone or GORE-TEX implants tend to be pre-shaped and look like a tapered sports helmet or chin guard. The surgeon has to sculpt such an implant for a customized fit. This kind of procedure tends to cost more because of the additional skills involved.
There are several other factors involving implant characteristics that dictate the price of the augmentation surgery. This includes the quality, size, and number of implants used. Sometimes, more than one chin implants may be necessary.
You will have to pay extra if you get additional procedures, such as a rhinoplasty done. Additional procedures are generally recommended for more harmonious procedures.

Chin augmentation procedures are usually not covered under a health plan since they are cosmetic procedures. However, you can easily get a loan for this purpose or other elective cosmetic procedures.
