A physician’s notes on Marilyn Monroe which emerged last week confirmed long-running speculation that the actress, who epitomised glamour during the latter part of Hollywood’s golden era, had a chin implant.
And it seems that Marilyn wasn’t alone in worrying about her jawline.
One cosmetic surgery group reports that enquiries for chin implants have doubled since 2010
Who conducted this survey, which is helping to reinforce the idea that it’s perfectly normal – if not expected – that women ought to alter themselves to better resemble celebrities?
A spokesman for Transform Cosmetic Surgery, who conducted the research, said: ‘Ms Monroe was certainly ahead of her time.
In younger women, this may mean adding definition. Older women often want to defy gravity and fight sagging.
‘Since 2010 we have witnessed a significant increase in patients interested in chin augmentation surgery, specifically those with a weak or receding chin that’s making them feel self-conscious.
‘A chin implant adds definition and balances facial features, producing instant and significant changes in the profile of patients.’
Nice to see an impartial view on the necessity of cosmetic surgery, being espoused by a private cosmetic surgery clinic.
