Are you curious about the recent rise in chin implant surgery?  According to the American Board of Plastic Surgery, “a total of 10,593 men had the operation done in 2011, a 76 percent increase over the prior year, and 10,087 women had the procedure, a 66 percent rise — for a combined total of 71 percent.”

Chin implantation (also called chin augmentation) is performed to balance the features of the face.  A receding chin can make one’s nose look larger or cause the neck to appear to lack contour.  During chin augmentation surgery an implant is placed to make the chin more prominent, thereby achieving facial symmetry, Chin implants are available in many shapes and sizes, giving your surgeon a wide array of choices to fit your individual needs.   These implants are made of durable silicone.  Chin implants are solid, and unlike breast implants they do not contain any liquid silicone gel.
