Chin Implants have become one of the most popular Cosmetic Surgeries

Americans are going through tough times but beauty is still important and they are spending a lot of money in cosmetic surgical procedures.

Last year Americans spent nearly 14 million dollars in cosmetic procedures. Although most of this money went into botox and collagen injections for non-surgical cosmetic procedures and the most popular plastic surgeries as always are: boob jobs, buttock lifts and nose jobs the surgery that made history is the mentoplasty (chin implants).

The big rise was in chin lifts – or Mentoplasty, which is up 71% on 2010, with 20,680 procedures over the year.
Says The Guardian

Chin augmentation uses surgical implants to alter the underlying structure of the face, providing better balance to the facial features.

Wikipedia says that this operation is often, but not always, performed at the time of rhinoplasty to help balance the facial proportions. I believe that your face would change a lot if you choose to go for the nose job and chin augmentation at the same time.

Chin Implants are sought by men and women.

People have different reasons why they choose to get a cosmetic surgical procedure like this. Some of the reasons according to Dr Zacharia’s website in Sydney are:

  • Trauma related injury
  • Birth defects
  • Asymmetrical structure
  • Protruding chin
  • Defining the chin

Chin surgery is normally performed under general anesthesia says Dr Hodgkinson from The Cosmetic and Restorative Centre Clinic.

It most preferably be at an  accredited and licensed day surgery clinic or in a hospital.

The Better Health Channel from the Victoria Government in Australia suggests that you should keep in mind the following things if you are considering to get a facial implant:

  • Before you opt for facial implants, there are some important issues to keep in mind:
  • Some facial implants are made from silicone. Concerns have been raised about the safety of silicone implants. Currently, there is no clear scientific evidence that silicone is a harmful substance.
  • Think about the financial cost. Cosmetic surgery does not usually qualify for rebates from Medicare or private health insurance.
  • Smokers are at increased risk of complications. If you are serious about undergoing cosmetic surgery, you should try to quit smoking.

Are you scared of pain?

These are some of the things that you might expect after the surgery:

  • Mild pain or discomfort
  • To have the wound protected with tape and dressings
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Numbness.

Nothing comes for free. Some women (and men have achieved excellent results).

It is hard to decide if you want to go under the knife for a cosmetic procedure. Never make a decision like this one under pressure or following a trend. Ask to your cosmetic surgeon all they questions that you might have and make sure you are dealing with a professional and qualified cosmetic surgeon. You are risking your beautiful face.

How much for a chin implant in Australia?

It depends from doctor to doctor but you can expect to pay around $4,000 dollars.

There is always finance available in Australia for Cosmetic Surgery.

Other women also consider going overseas because it seems to be cheaper but you have to make sure you are dealing with a professional doctor and clinic and you would also need to make the numbers if you have to pay flights and accommodation overseas. Thailand is a busy destination for Aussie ladies who want to save some money on cosmetic surgery.
