Chin Implants

If you are unhappy with the structure of your chin or feel your facial features lack proportion, you can feel more confident with your appearance with chin implants, which can create facial harmony bringing your chin into better proportion with other features.

A well-defined chin adds balance and symmetry to the face. It accentuates your profile, enhances your jawline, and brings an aesthetic harmony that can significantly boost your confidence.

At Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts, we offer chin implant surgeries tailored to meet the unique needs and desires of each individual.

Why Choose Chin Implants?

Chin augmentation, commonly known as chin implant surgery, is a procedure aimed at improving or enhancing the size and shape of the chin. This surgery can benefit those who:

Feel their chin is too small or receded: A weak chin can throw off the balance of facial features, making the nose appear larger or the neck look less defined.

Want to improve facial harmony: The right size and shape of the chin can provide a harmonious balance with other facial features.

Have age-related chin resorption: Aging can cause the chin to recede or sag. An implant can restore a youthful profile.

Desire more pronounced jawline: Chin implants can provide a more defined and contoured jawline.

Our Approach To Chin Implants

Personalized Consultation: Every face is unique. Our surgeons begin with an in-depth consultation to understand your concerns, evaluate your facial anatomy, and offer recommendations tailored to your goals.

Virtual Imaging: With advanced imaging technology, you can visualize potential results. This ensures your expectations align with the achievable outcome.

Top-Quality Implants: We use the highest quality, FDA-approved implants that are both safe and designed for longevity.

Expert Surgical Techniques: Our surgeons’ expertise ensures minimal scarring, precise implant placement, and natural-looking results.

The Procedure

Chin implant surgery is an outpatient procedure that typically takes about one to two hours. It can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.

A small incision is made either under the chin or inside the mouth, ensuring scars are virtually invisible. The implant, preselected to match your desired size and shape, is then placed in front of the jawbone. Once correctly positioned, the incision is closed.

Recovery & Results

Post-surgery, you may experience mild swelling, discomfort, or bruising, which will subside within a few days. Most patients can return to their regular activities within a week.

Results are immediately visible, although the outcome becomes more evident as the healing progresses. With proper care, chin implants can last a lifetime, giving you enduring confidence.

What Our Patients Say


“I felt welcomed and valued from the second I walked in the door to the moment I left. Every person I interacted with- from the front desk staff, to the surgical assistants, and even the doctor himself- was kind, informative, and helpful. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Friday and was back to work with only a mild and easily manageable headache on Monday. They gave clear instructions on how to prevent infection and dry socket, and even called to check up on me the day of and week after my procedure! I strongly recommend this office to anyone who is searching for the services they offer.

Jacquelyn Candito


“Everyone was super nice, friendly, and courteous. The office is clean and modern. Everyone was professional and seemed pretty organized. I got to watch Netflix laying down while I waited as well. The staff was nice enough to even switch it to a show I recommended!! Also, there are snacks and drinks available for your drivers waiting on you. As someone who is wary of going to the dentist, it was a great experience and I’d recommend this place! Cute valentines day decorations when I was there too!”
