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.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
