Chin implants, otherwise known as ‘chinplants’ have taken over breast augmentations as the fastest growing procedure among image-conscious Brits.
Dr De Silva, a leading surgeon from the Centre of Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in London says that there has been a 60 per cent rise in the cosmetic procedure over the last few years; a growth he affords to selfie celebrity culture.
The new wave of surgeries is favoured by both sexes with around 60 per cent of enquiries coming from women and 40 per cent from men.

“Chin implants are a great way to give more balance to a patient’s face,” De Silva said.
“In a woman, a chin implant restores harmony and natural beauty.
