Chin augmentation plastic surgery can add definition and substance to a disproportionately small or a recessive chin. Your surgeon will talk about various aspects of the surgery during the initial consultation. This discussion shall also include estimated costs. Overall procedure cost is usually higher when chin implant surgery is performed with other facial cosmetic surgeries, such as cheek implants or lip augmentation.
You should discuss all options for financing with your treatment provider and overall estimated costs before making a decision. These are a few factors that can impact the cost of a chin augmentation procedure. Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides chin augmentation surgery to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding communities.
Scope of Surgery
Chin augmentation is performed by inserting pre-made biocompatible synthetic implants in front of the lower jaw bone. These implants are usually silicone. Your surgeon may need to sculpt the lower structure of your face. This will require local anesthesia with intravenous sedation.
However, in certain cases your surgeon may have to employ monitored anesthesia care (MAC). This is when chin augmentation is performed with other cosmetic procedures. General anesthesia is costlier than local anesthesia with sedatives since it involves anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist fees.
The overall costs will be higher if the surgeon is performing the chin augmentation surgery in conjunction with another facial plastic surgery, such as facelift or rhinoplasty. Sometimes, FDA approved dermal fillers are used along with chin implant surgery for better results. Soft tissue fillers used can be Radiesse, Restylane, or Juvederm, which can increase the procedure monetary amount.
Fees Charged by the Surgeon
Cosmetic surgeons that are highly experienced and skilled may charge a higher fee as compared to one who is less experienced and is performing the procedure under the guidance of a senior cosmetic surgeon.
Board certified plastic surgeons who perform chin augmentation will typically invest in state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge surgical techniques. Most board certified plastic surgeons also like to continue ongoing education, which gives them access to latest advancements.
You can count on these surgeons to not compromise on the quality of a procedure in a bid to reduce costs. Patients are recommended by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) to work with the best surgeons they can find for their requirements.
The average price tag of different types of goods and services tend to be higher in coastal regions and prime urban centers as compared to sparsely populated or remote towns. Real estate and cost of living can impact the price of everything, including healthcare and surgeries. You need to understand that the cost of chin augmentation may differ as per specific geographic locations.
Options for Financing
Your credit history or lack of liquid funds should not deter you from getting the facial balance you seek through a chin augmentation surgery. There are many certified medical care financing firms that can finance the procedure for you at competitive rates.
