Chin Implant: The Latest Trend in Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic industry experts are revealing a surge in the number of chin implants since a year but is that true that Skype is fueling the plastic surgery industry?

Let's try to understand what experts' views are and why Skype is claimed to be playing a major role behind this increase in chin implant surgeries.

Reports submitted from The Wall Street Journal have revealed that the American Association of Plastic Surgeons has confirmed that more number of people (both men and women, maximum over 40 years) is seeking chin implants since a year.

During a chin implantation surgery, experts place a silicon implant to increase the size of the chin of a patient to enhance the facial beauty. Reports have confirmed that an increase of 71% has been witnessed in 2011 with almost 20,680 chin implants have been done only in the US.

Explaining that Skype could be playing a major role, WSJ's President Mr. Malcolm Z. Roth said that video chat technology has become very common today. This says that more people are noticing their jaw line and other facial features on their screens.

This could be serving as a big factor behind peoples' decision of seeking chin implant to sharpen their chins and give their faces the desired looks.

"The chin and jaw line are among the first areas to show signs of aging. People are considering chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift or eyelid surgery", Dr. Roth, President of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons said in his written statement.

Experts claim that with more people preferring cosmetic surgeries, not only chin implants but cosmetic surgeries in whole are seeing a big bump in rates. Lip augmentation rates have gone up to 49%, cheek implant rates have increased by 47% etc.
