Chin Implant Surgery is on the Rise

New ASPS statistics show “chin implants” are the fastest growing procedure.

New statistics released in April of 2012 by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show that chin augmentation is the fastest growing plastic surgery trend among all major demographics — a phenomenon which 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 augmentation grew more than breast augmentation, Botox® and liposuction COMBINED in 2011!  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.
