Breast implants are passé. Chin spruce ups are in. Of late, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) have been finding that chin implants are the most common cosmetic surgery they are doing.
It is being reported that people are going for chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthfulness. People prefer to modify their jawline in order to improve their beauty and looks.
Around 7,000 surgeons in theUSare members of the ASAP. Meanwhile, British surgeons claim that isolated chin implants were rarely done. This surgery is commonly happened as part of a package of cosmetic surgery.
According to James McDiarmid, a consultant surgeon and spokesperson for the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, no one comes for a direct chin implant and around 80% of his chin implants are part of other cosmetic surgery operations.
In the US, around 20,680 chin implant operations have been reported in 2011 – a 71% increase since 2010.
Data from American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery shows that almost 325,332 cosmetic operations are liposuction.
Breast augmentation comes at second place with 316,848 operations. ASAP also reports that male- female ratio in chin implants is almost equal.
