Chin surgery can enhance the look of a weak or disproportionate chin. If you are considering rejuvenating your appearance through chin surgery, you may have wondered what the cost might be. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg can outline the various aspects affecting chin surgery cost at his Long Island, NY, practice, allowing you to make an informed decision about your treatment. Factors such as surgical technique and post-operative care will affect cost. Our team can also explain our financing options, helping you find a solution that fits your budget.
Chin Surgery Techniques
The factor that will affect the cost of your chin surgery most is the technique that is used. There are two primary methods that Dr. Greenberg can use to enhance your chin (genioplasty), these include:
- Chin implants: Chin augmentation can be performed using a chin implant. Dr. Greenberg can insert the silicone implant through a hidden incision in your mouth or small incision under the chin. Together, you and Dr. Greenberg will choose the right size and shape of implant for your face. The cost of this method hugely depends on the type of implant you select.
- Chin bone repositioning: Dr. Greenberg may suggest repositioning your chin bone. For this procedure, he will move your lower jaw forward, through an incision created inside your mouth. This type of surgery requires a longer recovery, but can be a good option if you have a severely sloping chin or a congenital defect. Since this method is more extensive, and involves greater skill and precision, it will typically cost more than chin implants.
Sedation Options and Post-operative Care
The type of sedation you receive plays a role in overall treatment cost. More extensive procedures, such as those involved in chin surgery, will require general anesthesia. General anesthesia is more costly than local anesthesia, but it will keep you comfortable during lengthy procedures. We work with experienced anesthesiologists who will monitor your safety and comfort throughout the procedure.
We are able to perform most surgical procedures at our state-of-the-art, Woodbury Surgical Center. This helps keep costs lower, eliminating the need for a hospital visit and accompanying fees.
The different methods of chin surgery will also require varying levels of post-operative care. If you choose to reposition your chin bone, you will need to attend a number of post-treatment appointments, so that Dr. Greenberg can monitor your recovery and safety. We will consider your long-term care when estimating the cost of your surgery.

The cost of your chin augmentation surgery will depend on the physical location of your surgery. We are able to perform most surgical procedures at our Woodbury Surgical Center. In this way, we can keep costs lower by eliminating the need for a hospital visit and accompanying fees. Our state-of-the-art facility is safe, comfortable, and convenient.
It can be tempting to choose a surgeon who advertises a very low cost. However, when it comes to your health and appearance, you should not cut corners to save money. Dr. Greenberg has years of experience with facial plastic surgery, and he is internationally recognized for his abilities.
