'Chinplant' surgeries on the rise in the US

Chin augmentation is now the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure in the U.S. and technology may have something to do with it.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says rates of these so called "chinplants" have increased 71 percent over last year. It grew more than breast augmentation, botox, and liposuction combined.

Doctors believe aging baby-boomers, both men and women, want to improve the shape of their chins due in part to the explosion of video and chat technology.
