& General Procedure Costs
|The costs of chin
augmentation surgery varies significantly between surgeons,
medical facilities, and regions of the country. Patients who
need additional or more extensive surgery will require more
intensive and expensive treatment. In non-private surgery
centers or in-office Operating Rooms the prices may include the
following. However, in hospitals, surgery charges can usually be
separated into five parts:
the surgeon's fee
the anesthesiologist's fee
the hospital charges,
which includes nursing care and the operating room
(antibiotics, topicals, dressings)
and any additional charges
All fees are averages; out-patient
charges, including surgeon fees, anesthesia, Operating Room charges, and
implants if applicable - unless otherwise noted. Lab fees, such as
"blood work", are normally an extra $35. - $75., plus
medications are usually an additional $120. Physicals are more, HIV tests
are additional and any other fees that you may be responsible for (X-rays,
etc.). If you are to be staying in a hospital or are opting for home
healthcare - these expenses are additional. This factor really depends
upon the region, surgeon, etc.
This usually requires no surgical
team, operating room or anesthesia other than local/regional and possibly
an oral sedative. The costs are significantly lower regarding
the procedure it self, although the product may be more expense and cc
(cubic centimeters of product) do add up. Inquire beforehand
regarding your needs and the going price at that time for the desired
product. Also inquire regarding touch ups for permanent injectables.

It is unlikely that chin augmentation performed solely for cosmetic purposes will be covered by most insurance policies. Insurance coverage is reserved for treatments required for some health or restorative purpose. This issue of coverage is the same across all fields of medicine, including dentistry. Dental insurance plans will not cover aesthetic dental care in form of teeth whitening, Lumineers, etc.
