Just in time for the Bravo reality show's 100th episode, "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson has debuted her newest improvement: A more prominent chin. And her catty frenemies Tamra Barney and Gretchen -- no strangers to plastic surgery themselves -- didn't waste any time picking apart her new look. “Does she not look different, look at her chin!” Barney squeals while showing Rossi a photo of Gunvalson. “She got a chin implant!”

She's not the only one. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' 2012 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, chin augmentations were the sixth most-popular cosmetic surgical procedure -- and the second most-popular type of implant -- performed last year.

"Having a strong chin is not something you can gain via diet or exercise," Dr. Darrick Antell, a clinical professor of surgery at Columbia University, told The Today Show. "You're either born with it or you see a surgeon to improve it."

It's especially popular with men and women who are facing 50. "They're getting loose skin under the jaw line," Antell points out, "and a chin implant can make an immediate improvement."

The new chin was probably part of 51-year-old Gunvalson's post-divorce makeover, the N.Y. Daily News reported, but Gunvalson isn't the only celebrity sporting a stronger jawline lately. Another Bravo star, Stassi Schroeder of "Vanderpump Rules," recently revealed that she had her chin done in high school. Heidi Montag re-did her chin when she had everything else on her body done in 2010. Bristol Palin suddenly appeared with a much more well-defined jawline in 2011. And another "Real Housewives" star, Alexis' husband Jim Bellino, reportedly got a chin implant as well. (Worth noting: The person who pointed out Jim's new chin was Tamra, too, so many chins are just her thing.)
