Chin Implant Surgery – What’s All The Buzz?

Apr 19th 2012 at 11:10 PM

The news outlets are all buzzing about chin implants, a popular plastic surgery procedure. It just goes to show you, when the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the largest plastic surgery specialty organization in the world releases a report, people listen – and the media reports what they report.

ASPS is a highly respected entity and credible agency known for their research reports and findings, because their members include 7,000 physician members and represents more than 94 percent of all board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States.

In their latest industry trends report, released on Monday, ASPS denoted the latest surprising statistics revealing a 71% increase in the number of chin implant surgeries from 2010 to 2011. This increase outpaced the percentage increases for breast implants, liposuction, and Botox combined. This is a significant increase, indicating that “chinplants” are in big demand from an equal number of males and females who want to improve their facial features and profiles.

Associated surgeons of ASPS performed more than 20,680 chin implants in the U.S. last year. An estimated 10,100 of these surgeries were performed on women and 10,600 men were recipients of chin implants in 2011.

This surge could partially be attributed to shows like The Doctors highlighting “chinplants” but that is just one theory, aside from our society’s obsessions with reality TV, celebrity looks, cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures and the pursuit of physical perfection.
