What’s “Behind” the Popularity of Brazilian Butt Lifts?

Posted on March 14, 2016 by - Butt Enlargement, Buttock Augmentation

shutterstock_189090659The release of the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) make it abundantly clear which procedure is gaining most in popularity. With a 252 percent uptick in 2015 when compared to 2014 stats, Brazilian butt lift surgery is now one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the country. What’s behind this staggering increase? Plastic Surgeon Dr. Carlos Chacon at Divino Plastic Surgery explains the reasons why Brazilian butt lifts have become so popular.

Going from Flat to Fabulous

Many women (especially) decide to have a Brazilian butt lift because they aren’t happy with buttocks that are flat, saggy or don’t have enough volume to balance out their other curves properly. Brazilian butt lift surgery helps a woman achieve a butt that is rounder and perkier, further enhancing her other curves as well. Many women achieve an “hourglass” shape following Brazilian butt lift surgery, as their thighs and hips appear smaller, and their waists slimmer.

Hollywood’s Influence on the “Booty”

There is zero doubt that, over the years, Hollywood has had an overwhelming effect on women’s changing ideas of what it means to have a “beautiful body.” Today’s stars like Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea reflect a popular modern definition of beauty: having a full, curvy behind. Celebrities often proudly display their round rears in “belfies” (butt selfies) on Instagram. With millions of followers on social media, these stars have had a direct and obvious influence on the Brazilian butt lift incline of recent years.

The Body-Shaping Benefits of Two Surgeries in One

Who doesn’t want the benefits of two surgeries in only one procedure (with only one recovery period)? Brazilian butt lift surgery achieves just that, since it removes extra fat from a problem area (often a tummy pooch or saddle bags) through liposuction, refines the fat and then injects it into the buttock area, where the surgeon then shapes it to the most aesthetically pleasing, lifted shape. The result? A smooth silhouette filled with sexy curves!
