April 16, 2012 by Sadie Whitelocks via DailyMail.co.uk -- Chins are the new boobs according to latest plastic surgery figures.
Chin implants - coined 'chinplants' - are becoming 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.
