Chin implant procedures soared last year, among both men and women, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Overall, chin implant demand increased 71 percent in 2011 compared to 2010. There was a 66 percent increase among women in 2011, and a 76 percent increase among men.

The greatest demand came from people older than 40, although there were also significant increases among people in their 20s and 30s as well.

Speculation has abounded regarding the reasons behind the increase for this facial procedure. The rise in both facelifts and chin implants may be attributable to:

  • Widespread use of video chat
  • Advancing age of baby boomers
  • Desire for relevancy in the workplace

Many of today’s professionals use live video chatting on a daily basis. If you use this form of communication, you may feel dissatisfied with the appearance of your chin and jaw line, because video chatting tends to emphasize these areas.

Chin implants balance your facial features. The procedure also defines your jaw and can increase the size of a weak chin. A chin implant can also draw attention away from a double chin and create a more proportionate facial appearance.

If you live in Dallas, Texas, or the surrounding areas and would like to find out if chin implants or facial rejuvenation procedures are right for you, please contact the Cosmetic Surgical Center to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai.
