Cost of Chin Plastic Surgery
Chin plastic surgery is designed to make the size and shape of the chin more proportionate to the rest of the face. During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of chin surgery with the patient, and also explain its estimated costs. The procedure is typically performed as an elective surgery, and the insurance will not cover it.
The first goal of a responsible surgeon will be to educate the patient about costs and other aspects, and help them make an informed choice. Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) provides chin surgery to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding locations.
Factors Influencing the Monetary Amount
The sticker price of chin plastic surgery can vary from one practice to another and even from one patient to another at the same practice in some cases. The factors that will impact the overall cost may include:
Location of the Practice
Where the practice is located will make a significant difference to the costs. Practices located in major metropolitan areas and prime urban centers will typically have higher costs because the average living costs are steep in these areas. On the other hand, a practice located in a smaller town or in the interior regions may afford to offer a relatively lower cost for chin plastic surgery.
The surgeon’s fee is an important component of the overall cost of chin surgery. The surgeon will usually charge a fee in sync with their qualifications, experience and certifications. Board certified surgeons typically invest in the best quality standards, advanced techniques, continuing education and latest safety protocols. Patients should ideally choose the best surgeon for their chin procedure, and consider the costs only as secondary priority.
A procedure such as chin plastic surgery may be performed at a hospital, an ambulatory surgical center, or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits associated with each of these options will vary. The surgeon will discuss all the options with the patient and make the most appropriate recommendation according to the specific circumstances of the case.
Extent of Surgery
Some patients may need only a limited chin enhancement without involving substantive structural tissue changes or bone resizing. In some other cases, the patient may require a major procedure such as chin implants or bone resizing to increase or decrease the size of the chin in proportion to other facial features.
Chin surgery is often performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty, which will add to the overall costs. Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and other cities across the horizon for chin plastic surgery.
Third Party Financing
While insurance will usually not cover an elective procedure such as chin surgery, most patients will be eligible to receive third party financing from various sources. Professional medical care finance firms offer competitive loans specially designed for cosmetic procedures, which are not covered by insurance.
