Dr. Constantino Mendieta - Celebzter
Are butt lifts the new boob job? Are you sitting on your assets?
A 58% spike in the number of buttock enhancements in the past year prompted some to wonder if butt lifts are the new boob job
Dr. Constantino Mendieta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Miami, says that celebrities with voluptuous backsides are inspiring this trend. The procedure, known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, takes fat from unwanted areas and transfers it to the buttocks, where it is then shaped and molded to perfection. A recent study done by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) revealed that the procedure is so popular that 11% more plastic surgeons over last year have begun offering it on their list of services.
Kim Kardashian’s famed booty is said to have help fuel the trend.
“Buttocks simply were an after-thought in the early days of body sculpting. At most, middle-aged women might ask for a lift if their buttocks had begun to sag,” Mendieta tells CelebZter. “If anything, the emphasis was on trying to minimize the hips to achieve a more ‘modern,’ fashion model-like figure with flattened buttocks. But now with celebrities like J.Lo and Kim Kardashian, the notions of beauty have shifted to a more rounded and fuller pro-portion.”
