According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, chin implant procedures increased by 66% in women and 76% in men; that’s more than breast implants, Botox and liposuction combined. While chin implant surgery is not a new procedure, the public opinion about elective surgery has become more positive. Plastic surgeons are seeing more and more people consider plastic surgery than ever before, including procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck and facelift. Patients now have more options to chose from.
Why the sudden trend? Some plastic surgeons attribute the need for a more defined chin because of the increase in video communication. Computer programs like Skype and facetime options with many smart phones have increased the level of face-to-face communication. Many people have elected for facial surgeries for an edge in the job market, too. While the the surgery is quite subtle it is also very effective, not only to define the face but to help people feel more confident.
Another important reason why chin implants and other elective surgeries have become more popular are the range of options and advanced technology. Not only do patients looking at chin implants have a wide variety of choices, but the surgery is minimally invasive. You can augment the size of your chin with a quick surgery which results in little down time and a short recovery period. It’s also a relatively painless surgery, with many post-operative patients needing little to no medication for pain.
