Chin Implants Are Becoming More And More Popular In The US
Modern people are ready for all types of crazy ideas in order to look better or just different from the others. There are almost no limitations to us in our urge to change our appearance or possibly look more attractive. Experts of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that nowadays, there’s a new trend to using chin implants in the United States, and the related cosmetic surgery has becoming one of the leading types of cosmetic procedures. It is estimated that in 2011, the number of related surgeries (known as mentoplasty) was about 20,680, compared to the year 2010 when the number of mentoplasty operations was only slightly over 6,000. Therefore, there has been a rise of about 70 per cent in this kind of cosmetic surgery.
At the same time, British cosmetic surgeons do not see any change in the demand of today’s Brits in this kind of cosmetic procedure. Such type of surgeries are usually requested in the United Kingdom as a part of a package for extensive cosmetic surgery, or as a part of rhinoplasty. James McDiarmid, a leading experts and cosmetic surgeon at McDiarmid Hall Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, says about the procedure and its popularity in the UK: “No-one ever comes into my clinic asking for a chin implant. Nobody says ‘I want to look like Bruce Forsyth!” According to the latest statistics, liposuction is the most demanded cosmetic surgery procedure now in the UK, with over 325,000 surgeries a year. Breast augmentation is the second one, the number of this type of cosmetic surgeries is approaching to 320,00o per year.
Certainly, chin implants and mentoplasty can be a great solution and an approach to fast and effective changing the shape of your chin, this way making you look completely different. Chin implants can be used to make the chin narrower, wider, or more prominent. Specialists underline that this interesting modern trend can be caused by nothing else, but a rapid development on the newest communication technologies, especially video connection. Very frequently, those people who want to look different (either more authoritative, or more threatening, or more kind, etc.) in the video communication tools, go for mentoplasty and using chin implants for improving their look and appearance.
Mentoplastycan involve using silicon chin implants or the ones made from a porous polyethylene. Usually, the procedure starts with a consultation and selecting a proper implant shape. Post-surgical pains and the signs as swelling and stiffness can remain for a few days. Complications are quite rare and most of those are infections, which can cause the implants to be taken out. Thus type of cosmetic surgery, starting from consultation and ending up with all necessary post-surgery procedures can cost about $5,000, but the price usually depends on location, type and specialization of clinic, as well as reputation of surgeon. Since the expenses can be a bit high, many of those who are considering chin implants in the end of the ends go for liposuction under the chin, which is much more economical yet very effective.
