Are chins the new breasts?

Are chins the new breasts? Why the celebrity-loved ‘chinplant’ is the fastest- growing plastic surgery trend in the U.S.


It’s official: The trout pout is out; the chin is in. The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson and Teen Mom Farrah Abraham are among the celebrities who have been showing off noticeably more defined jawlines.

Last year, the American Society of Plastic Surgery reported that the ‘chinplant’ was the fastest-growing cosmetic surgery procedure.

Gunvalson reportedly got her chin tweaked as part of an $8,000 ‘breakover’ surgical overhaul following her divorce from ex-husband Donn.

Countless other stars are rumored to have been nipped and tucked below the nose.

Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol emerged with a much more prominent chin after jaw surgery. She never confirmed an implant, but experts say that procedures to correct bite problems, rhinoplasty and/or facial liposuction can be performed at the same time.

So why is the surgery becoming so popular? A strong chin is traditionally a sign of strength and success. Many people want to balance their face to look better onscreen, whether that involves reality TV or video conferencing at work.
