Numbers of ‘chinplants’ across America explode as career women want to look good for video conferencing.
Chins are the new boobs according to latest plastic surgery figures.
Chin implants – coined a ‘chinplant’ – is the fastest growing cosmetic surgery trend, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and grew more than breast augmentation, Botox and liposuction combined in 2011.
Experts suggest the trend has been prompted by increased use of video conferencing in the workplace which causes employees to focus on their facial appearance.

Mary Eberstadt in the The Wall Street Journal:
Why do the pages of our tonier magazines brim with mournful titles like “The Case for Settling” and “The End of Men”? Why do websites run by and for women focus so much on men who won’t grow up, and ooze such despair about relations between the sexes?
Why do so many accomplished women simply give up these days and decide to have children on their own, sometimes using anonymous sperm donors, thus creating the world’s first purposely fatherless children? What of the fact, widely reported earlier this week, that 26% of American women are on some kind of mental-health medication for anxiety and depression and related problems?
Or how about what is known in sociology as “the paradox of declining female happiness”? … Women’s happiness appeared to be declining over time despite their advances in the work force and education.
