There are a variety of factors that contribute to the cost of a chin implant removal, however you can expect it to be around $2000-$3000 in Toronto, Ontario.

Plastic Surgery pricing depend on the geographic location and the expertise of the surgeon.  The fee for the removal of a chin implant tends to be $1000 to $2500 depending on the complexity of the case.

cost of chin implant removal depends on the type of implant and the complexity of the problem but in most situations it can be done under local anesthesia or light IV sedation for around 1000-1250

$1,000 to $1,500

Chin implant removal cost should range from $1,000 to $1500. The removal and reimplantation of another chin implant would cost around $3,000, and that includes the operating room and the surgeon’s fee for performing the procedure. This can be done under a local anesthesia quite easily. If the patient desires general anesthetic, $300 needs to be added to that fee quote.

Make sure that removal only is the right choice

Finances are always a consideration but much more important is the presence of a good long-term plan.

- how long was the implant present

- is it too big, misplaced, infected, painful etc.

- what is your tissue quality

- what style (shape) of implant was used

- what type of implant material is present

We barely ever just remove an old implant but virtually always replace it with the more appropriate fit. Removal only maybe around $2000 or less.

Chin implant removal cost is minimal

Most patients choose to leave implants in place and I would recommend that you consider either leaving the chin implant, or possibly placing a smaller sized one. There can be potential issues if you simply leave it out and you should discuss this with your surgeon.

If it is shortly after the placement of the implant, it can be removed as an office procedure under local anesthesia; if it is more long term, the procedure can still likely be done under local anesthesia, but there are many variables to be considered. Discuss the options with your surgeon, and their office staff should be able to discuss any fees.

Cost for chin implant removal will vary and depend on several factors including the type of implant placed and the type of anesthesia required for removal. In the simplest cases it should not be more than $1,000-$2,000. With more complicated cases, the cost may be several thousand more. The best course of action is to visit with the surgeon who performed the implantation and discuss your concerns and to determine if removal is the best option.

Chin implant removal is not expensive

It should not be expensive at all as it could be done under local in the office. If your chin implant is old and is porex and not silicone, it might need more dissection. In general, it is under $1200.
