Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing resolute, supreme, and impressive cosmetic surgery procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas. He discusses the cost aspect of the procedure clearly with the patients during the initial consultation to help them make informed choices. Chin liposuction is one of the plastic surgery procedures that Dr. Seify offers to patients who are looking to reduce their double chin. The cost of this procedure may vary depending on several factors.
Cost Factors in Chin Liposuction
Dr. Seify advises his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities to consider various factors associated with the cost of a particular procedure. The cost of chin liposuction may vary from one cosmetic surgeon to another based on these factors.
Location of the practice can have an impact on the overall cost of chin liposuction because the cost of living may be different in two different regions. For instance, the cost of chin liposuction in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas may differ from the cost of the same procedure in Denver, CO.
The fee charged by the plastic surgeon can vary depending on the qualifications, experience and reputation of the surgeon with regard to chin liposuction. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the patient should choose the most appropriate surgeon for their needs. The surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary consideration in such a decision.
Operating Room Costs
If the neck liposuction procedure is performed at a state of the art surgical facility that is equipped with the latest technologies and has the back-up of a highly experienced staff, its cost may be higher as compared to an average operating room. If the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, the fee of anesthesiologist may vary according their skills and experience.
Chin liposuction plastic surgery may also entail additional costs such as the costs of medical tests, prescription drugs and post-op visits to the surgeon’s office. These are seemingly minor costs, but may add up to be a significant amount in the end. Therefore, a patient should include these costs at the time of preparing an overall cost estimate of chin liposuction procedure.
Average Cost of Surgery
The average cost of chin liposuction cosmetic surgery may vary depending on the length and complexity of a particular case. In some cases, the liposuction procedure may be combined with neck re-contouring to reduce loose skin. Alternatively, chin liposuction and neck liposuction may be combined to achieve more comprehensive outcomes. The cost of the procedure would go up in such cases. On average, the cost of chin liposuction may range between $3,000 and $6,000 depending on various factors.
Insurance and Financing
The cost of chin liposuction may not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan, if the procedure is performed as an elective surgery for aesthetic reasons. Financing options are usually available through professional medical care finance companies.
