Times Are A Changing / Chin Implant Surgery on the Rise

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has recently released their 2010- 2011 surgical Chin Implant Surgerystatistics.  Chin augmentation surgery increased 71% during this time period,  surpassing the rate of breast implant,liposuction and Botox combined.

It has been suggested that some of rise in chin implant surgery may be due to baby boomers availing themselves of all forms of online communications such as video-chat technology.  This allows virtual face-to-face interaction with people all over the world but at the same time we are able to see ourselves as others see us exposing our double chins and lax jawlines etc…  It is a fact that, as we age the chin and jawline area are among the first areas to show signs of aging.  Chin augmentation is one way to correct this problem along with such procedures as facelift (rhytidectomy) and eye tuck (blepharoplasty) surgery.

Darrick Antell, M.D., a member of the ASPS studied the profiles of many CEO ‘s states , “We know that CEOs tend to be tall, attractive, good-looking people.  We now know that these people also tend to have a stronger chin.  As a result, people subconsciously associate a stronger chin with more authority, self-confidence and trustworthiness.”
