According to the most recent data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the number of cosmetic procedures performed in the US is on the rise for another year in a row. So, which procedure saw the most growth? The answer may surprise you. “Chin augmentation grew more than breast augmentation, Botox® and liposuction combined in 2011,” explains a recent ASPS press release. “The procedure skyrocketed in both women and men, as well as in all patients over the age of 20, with the largest increase seen in patients age 40 or older.”
According to the ASPS, the number of chin augmentation surgeries were divided almost equally among men and women, with men receiving 10,593 procedures and women receiving 10,087. All in all, the procedure saw a startling 71% increase in popularity between 2010 and 2011. So, why was there such a dramatic boom? According to the ASPS, this phenomenon “ appears, in part, to be sparked by increased usage of video chat technology, an aging baby boomer population and a desire for success in the workplace.”

Chin Implant Procedure
Patients looking to achieve a stronger, better-proportioned chin sometimes turn to dermal fillers to achieve their desired look. While this may enhance one’s appearance, the results are only temporary. Now, many patients looking for a more permanent solution are turning to Chin Implant Surgery.
During the chin augmentation procedure, a bio-compatible implant made of silicone or another flexible material is inserted into the chin through a small incision. The implant may be placed into a pocket or secured to the bone with screws for long-lasting results. This procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to perform, with patients usually able to return to work the next day. For many patients, this procedure means the difference between the chin they have and the chin they have always wanted. Interested? Schedule a consultation today!
