A well-defined chin accentuating your jawline is considered an attractive feature for both women and men. People often think of fillers for chin augmentation, but chin augmentation with an implant can be a more cost-effective solution in the long run. The cost of chin augmentation surgery at our Scottsdale, Arizona, practice ranges from $6,000 to $8,000, depending on various factors.

Factors Influencing the Price of Chin Augmentation

If you consult with multiple plastic surgeons and get price quotes from each practice, it’s important to understand what influences the cost of chin augmentation. Factors that influence the cost of chin augmentation include the following:

  • Training and experience of the surgeon: Many general plastic or cosmetic surgeons perform chin augmentation, but only a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon has experience and training focused exclusively on facial plastic surgery. That is a level of expertise that general plastic surgeons cannot match.
  • Technique used: Most chin augmentation procedures involve inserting a synthetic implant to improve the chin’s definition. An alternative approach involves fat transfer, where fat cells are harvested from another area of the patient’s body and carefully injected into the jawline or chin region to create a more prominent and defined chin profile.
  • Type of anesthesia: Plastic surgeons may use a general anesthetic with a board-certified physician anesthesiologist or a local anesthetic with intravenous sedation.
  • Time in the operating room: A more extensive procedure or one that’s combined with other procedures requires more time in our AAAHC-accredited surgical center.
  • Choice to combine chin augmentation with other procedures: Chin augmentation patients often combine the procedure with rhinoplasty or facial liposuction to create overall facial harmony.

Your Chin Augmentation Options

The technique used during your procedure influences the cost of your surgery. I’ll create a personalized surgical plan specifically for your procedure.

Chin Implants

I customize the shape of the synthetic implants I use for each chin augmentation surgery. The procedure involves making a small incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth and then inserting and anchoring the implant.

Fat Transfer

Using fat taken from another area of the body and injecting it into the chin can also improve its contours. For this procedure, I use liposuction to harvest a small amount of fatty tissue and then purify it before re-injecting the fat to sculpt the chin.

Getting Chin Augmentation in Scottsdale

The location of a plastic surgery practice affects the cost of chin augmentation or other procedures. Women and men who undergo chin augmentation surgery in larger cities such as Miami, New York, or Los Angeles will likely pay more than in smaller U.S. cities. Patients often travel from L.A. to the Scottsdale-Phoenix area for chin augmentation performed at our practice.
