Wow! I am honored that Jackie Silver used some of my thoughts and quotes for this article. Surgery in any form should always be the last resort. It just makes sense to exercise your face before you ever consider surgery or anything invasive – yes, injections are invasive!!!
Chin augmentation surgery has skyrocketed.
BY: JACKIE SILVER
Chin augmentation, such as implants or "chinplants" as they're being called, are the new beauty obsession to reshape or change the size of the chin. In fact, this surgical procedure grew more than breast augmentation, Botox and liposuction combined in 2011, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Chinplants are the fastest growing trend among all major demographics – a phenomenon that the ASPS says is possibly sparked by the increased usage of video chat technology, a growing middle age population and wish for success at work. Chin surgery saw a staggering 77 percent increase from 2010 to 2011 in the 40 – 54-year-old age group.
"The chin and jaw line are among the first areas to show signs of aging. People are considering chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift or eyelid surgery," said ASPS President Malcolm Z. Roth, MD. "We also know that as more people see themselves on video chat technology, they may notice that their jaw line is not as sharp as they as they want it to be. Chin implants can make a dramatic difference."
Cynthia Rowland, creator of Facial Magic facial exercise program, thinks the chinplant is a rather radical choice. The New York times Health Information Web site lists 14 different possible complications and side effects to the procedure. Rowland says, "A better, more economical approach to creating a prettier profile would be to use facial exercise
She adds, "Learning a facial exercise program that employs isometric contraction will certainly lift, contour and shape not only your soft, spongy neck muscles, these exercises will taper and strengthen all muscles in the neck and face. When you use this type of natural enhancement rather than an invasive procedure, there is no room for mishap or disappointment."
Combining facial exercises with skin care could delay or even take the place of the need for surgery. Olay has two products for firming – the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum, a peptide-packed duo used to restore volume and shape across millions of skin cells.
Aveeno offers its Positively Ageless Restructuring Treatment Cream to help fight the aging signs of sun damage while rehydrating, reinforcing surface structure and improving skin firmness and elasticity on the face and neck.
