Read on for the answers to those FAQs.
Cost of Chin Augmentation
It is difficult to give you a precise cost on how much the chin augmentation will cost simply because it varies from nation to nation, state to state and clinic to clinic. The best thing that you can do is to call up clinics in your local area and gain an understanding of what the mean price will be, once you have that you can make your decision. Costs change based on the reputation of the clinic, the location of it and you could be looking at between $3500 – $6000 depending on who you choose. This is why some patients will look to go abroad to have the surgery done where the associated costs are much lower.
How Long Does Surgery Take?
Most surgeries take n more than 30 minutes, the only way in which that could be longer is if you are having multiple surgeries at once or additional procedures such as a rhinoplasty. On its own the chin augmentation will take 30 minutes.
Will I Be Awake?
Patients are asleep during surgery using an IV sedation and local anesthetic. Patents will not here or feel anything during the surgery.
How Long Does Swelling Last?

Does it Hurt?
As mentioned the op doesn’t hurt because you will be asleep but the recovery can be painful and uncomfortable for a short while. You will be given some pain medication to manage for the first couple of days, after that the pain will subside.
Can I Go Home Afterwards?
This will be done as an outpatient but because you will have been sedated you will have to make some plans in terms of getting someone to pick you up after the surgery as you will not be able to drive and the clinic will need to know that someone is looking after you.
Can I Exercise?
You will need to make sure that you avoid aerobic activities for at least 3 weeks after surgery. Working out too early can increase blood pressure and that can cause problems with the healing process so it is best to listen to advice and avoid this .
