I'm 20 years old and thinking about turning to surgery to shorten chin, what would be the average cost for this to be done and what happens after the operation is finished?

Cost factors vary significantly for a number of good reasons: Prices vary greatly because the surgery itself encompasses a wide range of techniques that can be performed to different extents. My recommendation is to first find the most qualified surgeons where you want the surgery performed that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery you trust, then compare prices between them. See the below link on suggestions on how to find the most qualified plastic surgeon for your procedure. General Factors that influence the price of plastic surgery include:

1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctor’s office? Geographical location also has a significant influence. RealSelf has average charges for most areas of the USA.

2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or an RN be used?            3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best and longest trained is most often a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery           4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how difficult will your surgery be and how long it will take, etc. Will other complementary procedures also be also performed during the same surgery?

Fee for chin surgery

A reduction genioplasty is about $5K and the anesthesia is about $1,200.  Oral and Max surgeons, Facial Plastic Surgeons and Plastic surgeons are a good place to seek evaluation.

The cost of chin surgery varies all over the country.  A good place to start is the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) for a list of Board Certified Surgeons in your area.  Schedule an exam to discuss your options.  You will have a surgeons fee, operating room fee, and anesthesia fee.  This is usually discussed at the consultation.  Best wishes!

you can shorten the chin/and set it back a bit; but it appears that your lower front teeth are quite upright and not supporting the lower lip ideally. This makes the chin appear 'stronger'. make sure you evaluate that aspect as well; to ensure you achieve your goal
