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 in Tysons Corner, VA.

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.
