According to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) last April, Chinplants are the fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedure. In fact, chin augmentation grew more than breast augmentation and liposuction combined last year.
Here are some quick facts about chin augmentations last year (data from ASPS):
Number of Procedures Overall: 20,680
20-29 years: 2,750
30-39 years: 2,587
40-54 years: 5,075
55 and over: 8,459
A receding chin can make a person look older, which is to account for the popularity of chin implants amongst the older crowd. But that’s not to say younger people with weak chins haven’t benefited from this procedure.
On a related note, apparently women with large chins are more likely to cheat on their partners. Researchers linked large chins in women to higher levels of testosterone, a chemical not typically associated with virtue and restraint. But that’s only for real chins, so if you want a big one like Jennifer Aniston, we’ve got you covered.
