Numbers of Chin Implants have exploded over the last year supposedly due to the fact career women want to look good for video conferencing. Why am I not surprised?
With just about anyone able to get onto camera these days thanks to sites such as YouTube and Skype it doesnâ€™t surprise me more women are requesting chin surgery.
Seeing yourself on tape can be a grueling experience, as the camera is not a friend Iâ€™ve come to find. It doesnâ€™t keep your secrets or make the illusion you are slimmer. Instead it shows just about every angle of you.
20,680 chin augmentations were carried out in the U.S. in 2011 and the procedure is now growing more than breast augmentation, Botox and liposuction combined according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). So whatâ€™s the reason behind this sudden desire to get a new chin? Itâ€™s simple. On video chat technology, people may notice that their jawline is not as sharp as they want it to be (in other words their double chin was out for the world to see, namely their business associates).
Experts suggest the trend has been prompted by the increasing use of video conferencing in the workplace which causes employees to focus on their facial appearance. So what are the two most popular options people are requesting?
Well the first includes a mentoplasty, which decreases the size of a chin that ‘juts out’ or is perceived as being too large. The second request is maxillofacial corrective surgery which actually alters the jaw position.
The chin and jawline are among the first areas to show signs of aging so I think thatâ€™s why people are considering chin augmentation, as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift or eyelid surgery but it keeps them looking good on camera.
Other cosmetic procedures that saw an increase in popularity in the U.S. included lip augmentation (up 49 per cent), cheek implants (up 47 per cent), laser skin resurfacing (up nine per cent), soft tissue fillers (up seven per cent) and facelifts (up five per cent).
