You wish you didn't feel as though you were taking steroids when you have chin implants by injection. The difference is, chin implant surgery by injection is public and won't cost you a career. But what will chin augmentation injections cost? Prices vary, but for injections such as bovine collagen or hyaluronic acid, you can expect to pay $400-$500. These are "skin fillers" that don't have the complications of solid chin implants. They're permanent and they work.
Hyaluronic acid may even be preferable to collagen, since collagen requires excessive touchups. They also aren't reabsorbed as quickly as your own fat, which can cost you $1000 and up for a series of injections. Injectables will inflate your bills much less than traditional chin implant surgery, especially since local anesthesia is less expensive than general anesthesia. No matter what the cost, injectables still beat the price of Senate hearings about steroids.
