Are you bothered by a weak or recessed chin?  Chin augmentation can improve the appearance of the chin in relation to the other facial features, and create the attractive profile you desire.  But what is involved in chin augmentation, and how much does it cost.

Chin augmentation surgery

Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure in which an implant is placed under the skin to augment the bone, in order to improve the definition of the chin and jawline.

Chin implants are typically made of biocompatible medical grade silicone, and are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.  They improve the appearance of the entire jawline, and balance facial harmony.  

How much does chin augmentation cost

The average cost of chin augmentation is $2,364, based on 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  However, the cost of chin augmentation can vary among practices, due to several factors including the following:

  • Plastic Surgeon’s fee:  Surgeons with extensive experience in chin surgery, generally charge more for their expertise.
  • Location of the practice: The cost of living differs between states, so chin augmentation is generally more expensive in large cities with a high cost of living.  
  • Anesthesia fee:  The credentials and experience of the anesthesiologist, will determine the fee they charge.
  • Type of chin implant: The cost of the chin implant will also impact the final cost of the procedure.  In addition to silicone chin implants, there are other implants made of Teflon and dacron. 

Due to these variables, it’s important to confirm what is included in the amount quoted, when you get a cost estimate from your surgeon for chin augmentation.
