For chin implant reshaping in the Bethesda area, turn to the facial cosmetic treatment experts at Maia Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, MD. The chin defines the lower half of your face. When the chin is smaller or undefined, it can make the face seem unbalanced. The nose may seem larger, and the profile of the face is affected. Both male and female faces are impacted by a weak or small chin. Chin implant surgery can transform the shape of the face and improve balance for those with poor chin definition. Maia Plastic Surgery offers chin implant surgery and augmentation at our medical facility near Bethesda, MD.

Chin implants are shaped to add length and width to the chin and jawline for cosmetic augmentation. Depending on the jaw structure of the patient and the desired appearance, different sized implants can be surgically added to the chin to change the shape of the lower face. Both men and women can benefit from cosmetic chin augmentation surgery if their chin is recessed, underdeveloped or misshapen.

Benefits of Cosmetic Chin Augmentation

The chin may not seem like an important facial feature, but it has an impact on other features and the overall face shape. A small, weak or recessed chin can shorten the face – this can make the top of the face seem wider and unbalanced. Chin augmentation with chin implant surgery can dramatically change the face. Some of the benefits include:

  • Nose may look smaller or more appropriate in size
  • A heart-shaped face for females
  • Defined or masculine chin and jawline for males
  • Improved profile appearance
  • Balanced lower and upper face proportions

The right chin size and shape can make a significant difference in facial appearance. If you are unhappy with your chin size or shape, chin implant surgery may be right for you.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

Justine A.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
