Surgical Fees & 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: 

  1. the surgeon's fee

  2. the anesthesiologist's fee (if applicable)

  3. the hospital charges, which includes nursing care and the operating room

  4. the medications (antibiotics, topicals, dressings)

  5. 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.

Injectable Products
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.

Various Options And Their Average Costs

  • with implant(s), $2,400. - $7,500.    

  • with injectables $500. - $2,500.

  • fat grafting $500. - $3,000.

  • sliding genioplasty $2,500. - $8,500.

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.

*Costs for medications, blood tests, and emergency surgeries, if applicable, are not included.
