You know that old saying, "chin up, Buttercup"? Well, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, chins are newly on the rise. Chin augmentation is the fastest growing trend in plastic surgery with a 71% increase in 2011, as reported by The Globe and Mail. Over half of the patients were men and the Society cites an aging population as the main cause for the increase, since the jawline is often one of the first areas to show age.
Actress Susan Sarandon recently admitted to having liposuction under her eyes and chin to fight the inevitable gravitational effects of being 65 and as painful as that may sound, I assure you the implant route sounds even worse. I won't get into the details, but the words cut, chisel, saw, and screw are all involved in one way or another. Remember, that's your face I'm talking about.
