How Much Does Chin Augmentation With An Implant Cost?

October 3, 2020

Chin augmentation or mentoplasty is a fairly common cosmetic surgical procedure. The goal of chin augmentation is to reshape the chin, typically by using an implant to enhance the volume and projection of the patient’s chin. Implants used in chin augmentation are made from medical-grade silicone rubber.

The result of chin augmentation with a chin implant is a more refined neck profile, plus an improved balance of facial features. Chin augmentation procedures with implants are conducted by Dr. Robert Langdon, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.

Chin Augmentation Overview

Many people feel that their chin negatively affects their facial appearance. Facial features such as the nose, chin, and neck are in “balance” when their relative prominences are in a pleasing proportion. A receding or “weak” chin can, unfortunately, make some people’s noses appear too large, or make their neck look too full (“double chin” appearance).

A chin augmentation will correct a weak chin and bolster a receding chin. It will also ensure that other facial features look more balanced. When it comes to chin augmentation, many patients find that added volume provided by injection of fillers is not enough and that they require an implant to achieve adequate chen enhancement.

Chin implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. That means patients can have chins that are wider, longer, or just stronger in general. Chin implants should be placed directly on the mandibular bone surface to assure a natural feel as well as a stable (non-shifting) placement.

Robert Langdon, MD, is a fully qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon who often performs placement of chin implants. He does these procedures at the acclaimed Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery, based in Guilford, CT.

Cost Of Chin Augmentation

In 2019, a total of 16,446 patients opted for chin augmentation, according to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Chin augmentation is a relatively common cosmetic surgical procedure.

If you feel that you may benefit from chin augmentation with a chin implant, you might be wondering how much the surgery will cost. The short answer is: it depends. Each patient has unique requirements and requests, and those needs affect the overall fee charged.

When you look at an average cost in the U.S. for chin augmentation and chin implants, you can expect to pay around $2,500 in total. But, as mentioned, the price for your cosmetic procedure will depend on your requirements.

The total cost of chin augmentation with a chin implant will typically include anesthesia fees, medical tests, the cost of the implant itself, and the surgeon’s fees. You’ll find the cost will also include any prescriptions and medical garments you might need.

Am I A Candidate For a Chin Implant?

Men and women can both benefit from chin implants. Chin augmentation can benefit both men and women for a variety of reasons. Of course, there are certain prerequisites to consider before opting for this cosmetic procedure. The first relates to the state of your jaw and teeth; both must function properly additionally, it’s vital that all candidates for chin augmentation are in good general health. During your initial consultation with Dr. Langdon, he will assess if you are a good candidate for chin augmentation as well as what style and size of the chin implant would be ideal for you.

 Dr. Langdon is a highly skilled doctor. He is patient and calm. He has taken years off my face and made me very happy. He provides a presentation to the public with over 200 photos of his work, which I found very informative. I planned on the neck and jowl facelift but added the chin lift which better balanced my profile, something that never looked right. Friends at work do not know what I did, but the compliments have not stopped!
