How Much Does Soft Tissue Reduction of the Chin Cost?

Submental Soft Tissue Chin Reduction Costs
You are specifically referring to a submental chin reduction procedure, which can be used to reduce a bony chin prominence and/or redundant and sagging soft tissues. This is a one hour procedure which can be done under either IV sedation or general anesthesia. If it is soft tissue only, then IV sedation would be very satisfactory. The total cost would be in the range of $ 3,000 to $ 3,500.
