NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A new report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons finds the chin is "in."
Statistics show chin augmentation procedures went up 71 percent last year.
That's more than breast augmentation, botox and liposuction combined!
Plastic surgeons say the jawline is one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging, so people are looking at chin implants as a way to bring back that youthful look.
There's also evidence people don't like the way their chin appears when using video chat technology.
Other popular procedures in 2011 included lip augmentation, and cheek implants.
