Chin Augmentation

Surgery of the Chin - Chin Implant/ Mentoplasty / Genioplasty

Chin surgery is minimally invasive and can change the shape of the chin to reduce a prominent chin or extend the chin from the face. The contour of the chin can be reshaped to be smoother, or more angular in appearance thereby creating or enhancing a better profile. Often a small, weak chin can make a nose appear larger so patients are sometimes advised to have chin surgery in conjunction with rhinoplasty to create a better balance of features. Patients can also have neck liposuction to remove excess fat from under the chin to redefine the chin line. Chin augmentation can make a major difference to the overall appearance of the face.

To correct a receding chin either an implant can be inserted or the chin bone can be moved forward to a more normal position. For a prominent chin the bone can be reduced and re-sculptured to a more acceptable size.

Chin Surgery can be performed to:

  • Add definition to the jawline
  • Correct a receding chin line
  • Create a stronger looking chin
  • Balance out facial features
  • Enhance a profile

Understanding the Procedure

Chin surgery is normally performed under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with IV sedation and takes 45-60 minutes depending on the extent of the surgery to be performed. Dr Pham uses VECTRA® 3D camera and Sculptor software to produces a three-dimensional photograph of the chin and face and able to simulate the expected average results of the proposed surgery.

Chin Augmentation (To Correct a Receding Chin)

Dr Pham makes an incision in the natural crease line under the chin or inside the mouth where the lower lip meets the gum. An implant (the size of which has been predetermined at previous consultations) is then inserted into the created space and fitted into place. The incision is closed with fine stitches. The sutures on the inside of the mouth show no visible scarring. Sutures along the chin crease will hardly be noticeable. The implant is usually Silastic with Gortex ePTEF covering (Composite).

Chin Reconstruction Surgery (To Correct a Prominent Chin)

In surgery for chin reduction Dr Pham makes small incisions either inside the mouth or under the chin and sculpts and repositions the facial bones to create a more harmonious look.

After conducting a thorough medical history, Dr Pham and his staff will offer information regarding anaesthesia, the surgical facility to be used, and the costs for the procedure. Every procedure is individual and unique to each patient. Because of this, determining your specific needs and the fees associated relies on a variety of factors, such as the complexity of the operation, where the surgery will take place and the type of anaesthetic to be administered.


A quote will be provided and is usually an estimate as the actual surgery may differ from the proposed treatment due to unexpected findings. Dr Pham will never compromise your health or surgical outcome to conform to previously anticipated or communicated anaesthesia and facility time. If further treatment is required (through complexity, unforeseen complications or additional procedures you request) then extra costs may apply.


The total fee will comprise of

  • Surgeon Fee (Dr Pham) – this will be provided in the quote
  • Anaesthetist Fee – you will need to consult the Doctor / Anaesthetist involve for a quote
  • Hospital or Day Surgery Fee – you will need to contact the hospital involve for a quote


The fee for an initial consultation with Dr Pham is $220. To be eligible for any Medicare rebates, you will need to have a valid referral from your general practitioner. Any follow-up consultations will incur a fee of $130.

Your first cosmetic consultation is complimentary with a Nurse Coordinator.

Fees for cosmetic plastic surgery are paid prior to surgery.


A non-refundable deposit of 10% or $500 is required once surgery has been scheduled. This deposit reserves the surgery date and is credited towards the balance due.

The balance of fees due is to be paid in full at the pre-operative appointment or three weeks prior to the scheduled surgery, whichever is first. Perth Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery generally does not provide refunds. Once a procedure is scheduled and the fee collected, and you cancel or reschedule the surgery within 2 weeks, there will be a fee of 25% of the total cost.

Exceptions are made for life-threatening emergencies or medical illnesses prior to the procedure. In these instances, the rescheduling fee does not apply.


Acceptable forms of payment include:

  • Cash
  • Bank Cheques
  • Visa or MasterCard

We do not offer payment plans


As a rule, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective surgery” and is not covered by most health insurance funds or Medicare. Some operations that have a significant functional aspect may be considered reconstructive rather than cosmetic and may attract a small rebate. These include Rhinoplasty for deformity or nasal obstruction, and breast reduction if the weight of your breasts causes pain or interferes with normal activities. Dr Pham will advise you to contact your health fund and Medicare if this is the case.

Because Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery is artistic, on occasion, revisions may be necessary. Such revisions are performed within one year of the original surgery, and although there is generally a minimum charge for the surgery, facility and anaesthesia fees still apply for such procedures. Perth Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery reserves the right to determine whether a revision is appropriate and what the procedure will entail. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please ask Dr Pham.
