Chin Lipo Cost FAQs

Chin Lipo Cost FAQs

Did you know that — in regards to chin liposuction — one of the most commonly searched phrases in Google is, “chin lipo cost”?

In fact, with regards to basically any type of cosmetic surgery, “[procedure name] cost” tends to be the most popular search. And with good reason.

As it turns out, most chin lipo patients simply don’t understand how much cosmetic surgery procedures cost, what individual expenses are involved, how the procedure can be paid for, or really anything about the cost of chin lipo.

So, let’s get into it. In truth, understanding chin and neck lipo cost does not have to be hard. Below, we’ve created a list of the most commonly asked questions (with answers!) about chin liposuction cost.

Double Chin Liposuction Costs FAQs

1. How much does liposuction of the chin cost?

Let’s start with the most commonly asked question: How much is chin and neck liposuction?

Unfortunately, you may be slightly disappointed with the answer, and that’s because we simply can’t tell you. Chin liposuction, like all other cosmetic surgery procedures, varies when it comes to cost. Getting chin lipo is not the same as getting a manicure or a massage. There is not a fixed price for this cosmetic surgery.

The cost, in the end, will depend on where you get chin liposuction surgery (geographic location and who your surgeon is), how much experience your surgeon has, the extent of excess fat beneath the chin, what type of anesthesia is used (general or local anesthesia), whether you have the surgery performed in an accredited in-office operating room or at a hospital, and many other factors.

Booking a consultation appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in double chin liposuction is the best way to get an accurate price estimate.

Basically, we can break down the cost of double chin removal via liposuction into three determining costs: your surgeon’s fee, the anesthesia fee, and the fees associated with materials and the surgical facility.

3. Are there any additional fees or expenses associated with chin liposuction?

Apart from what we mentioned above, there should not be any major additional fees. Some surgeons will charge separately for a consultation appointment, followup appointments, or post-surgery garments and prescriptions, but this depends on the practice you choose to work with.

4. How does the cost of chin liposuction compare to other cosmetic procedures?

A double chin liposuction procedure is typically one of the less expensive procedures, especially when compared with highly technical procedures like rhinoplasty or larger procedures like tummy tuck surgery or full body liposuction.

5. Is chin liposuction covered by insurance?

No, double chin surgery is a cosmetic surgery. You perform chin liposuction for aesthetic reasons to get rid of unwanted fat on the neck and chin. Health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgeries.

6. Are there financing options available for chin liposuction?

Yes, but it depends on the practice you work with. Many surgeons offer financing through companies like CreditCare, and most accept major credit cards as well.

Some surgeons may even have their own payment plans offered through their practice, though it’s important to look into this ahead of time as these types of options are not always available.

7. Does the experience and reputation of the surgeon affect the cost of chin liposuction?

Yes, surgeons who have more experience and specific training with submental liposuction tend to charge more because they are simply in higher demand. Of course, if you work with such a surgeon, you are more likely to achieve a superior outcome.

8. Do consultations for chin liposuction cost extra?

This depends on the plastic surgeon. Some will offer consultations for free to all chin liposuction patients.

Others will charge separately for each consultation no matter what. And still others will allocate the cost of a consultation to the overall surgery fee if you attend the consultation and then ultimately commit to surgery with that surgeon.

The importance of a good consultation can not be underestimated.  Your will be able to discuss all questions about chin lipo recovery, chin lipo scars, and what to expect from chin lipo before and after surgery.

Cost Of Chin Lipo9. Are there different techniques or methods of chin liposuction that affect the cost?

Most chin liposuction surgeries are fairly straightforward. In some cases, however, when patients also have loose skin along their neck area, a neck lift and/or skin tightening may also be required.

Note that if you have loose neck skin and no excess fat beneath your chin, you should not need liposuction at all. Instead, you can have the excess skin removed and the underlying muscles tightened with a neck lift.

10. Can I get a quote for chin liposuction before scheduling the procedure?

No, before you actually schedule your procedure, you’ll first need to meet with your surgeon for a consultation appointment. At this appointment, you’ll have a short physical exam and discuss your medical history with the surgeon. They’ll want to know your goals and expectations, and at that point, you can discuss your options, potential dates for surgery, and the estimated cost.

11. How does the cost of chin liposuction vary by geographic location?

In larger cities, all types of surgery tend to cost more, and this includes plastic surgery. You’ll find the lowest prices for surgery in rural locations, but do remember that the best surgeons in the nation tend to congregate in large cities and urban areas.

12. What payment methods are accepted for chin liposuction?

Most surgeons accept major credit cards, cash, and financing through companies like CreditCare. Payment methods beyond these must be discussed with your surgeon.

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
