News Roundup – Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian Butt Lifts Are on the Rise in America
Pop stars and celebrities like J. Lo, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian have helped to catapult a curvier rear end into the forefront of the plastic surgery world, leading increased numbers of people seeking the Brazilian butt lift, a procedure that boosts volume in the derrière. Dr. Douglas Taranow, a NYC-based plastic surgeon, reported a greater demand for Brazilian butt lifts than breast augmentations in 2013. Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons indicate that the buttocks-enhancing procedure grew by 15 percent from 2013 to 2014, with women and men both requesting the surgery.
Brazilian Butt Lift One of the Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures in 2015
Brazilian butt lifts are best known for augmenting the size of the buttocks, but another reason for the procedure’s soaring popularity is how it sculpts away fat from the waist, thighs and love handles to improve body contours. The procedure enjoyed a 58 percent jump in growth from 2013 to 2014, and an article in Beauty World News said the Brazilian butt lift was one of 2015’s most popular cosmetic procedures. Removing unwanted fat from the midsection accentuates the newly-enhanced buttocks and results in a more flattering silhouette.
“Botched” Doctors Endorse Brazilian Butt Lifts
Well-known cosmetic surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif from the E! Network show “Botched” say that Brazilian butt lifts work. They endorse the procedure, noting that fat which is harvested via liposuction from other regions of the body, such as the thighs and abdomen, can survive after being transferred to the buttocks. The surgeons offer the important caveat that Brazilian butt lifts should only be performed by a medically-licensed, experienced cosmetic surgeon. The two doctors have seen a number of botched procedures and warn against “pumping parties,” where non-medical strangers inject dubious substances into the buttocks, breasts or face with disastrous and even life-threatening results.
Brazilian Butt Lifts on Tap to Be One of 2016’s Biggest Trends
Demand for Brazilian butt lifts is expected to continue in 2016, following its trend in growth from the previous year. Web-based publication Counsel & Heal notes that butt augmentation is in and breast augmentation declining in popularity, as more women turn away from a top-heavy look and prefer to enhance the bottom portion of their body. In addition to the popularity of Brazilian butt lifts in 2016, the number of breast reduction surgeries and lip augmentations are also expected to grow. The article predicts that women who are interested in breast augmentation will choose smaller breast implants, and more men will seek out cosmetic procedures.
