Chin augmentation is the fastest growing cosmetic  surgery procedure according to new statistics released by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The rise in popularity is partly attributed to the utilization of cameras, with programs like Skype and Facetime, socially and in the workplace.
The ASPS states that chin augmentation procedures in 2011 grew more that breast augmentation, Botox, and liposuctions combined. There was a 71% increase in procedures from 2010. The procedure skyrocketed in both women and men, as well as in all patients over the age of 20. The largest increases were with men and patients over 40.


The chin and jaw line are among the first areas to show signs of aging. People are considering chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift  or eyelid surgery," said ASPS President Malcolm Z. Roth, MD. "We also know that as more people see themselves on video chat technology, they may notice that their jaw line is not as sharp as they want it to be. Chin implants can make a dramatic difference."

A competitive work market and a desire to rejuvenate the appearance were factors that contributed to the increase of a variety of cosmetic facial procedures besides the chin implant. Lip augmentation, soft tissue fillers and facelifts also grew in popularity.

Who would have thought? I have a chin implant and always thought of it as a little way of "cheating" because you get so much benefit for little procedure and recovery like a chin implant.

Interesting statistic. I can see why it's becoming so popular. A relatively straight forward procedure, with little down time, and a huge change for the better in ones appearance.
