Bottoms Up: The Rise of the Derriere
Buttock augmentation, also known as gluteal augmentation, has gained popularity in the last few years with a 54% increase according The Aesthetic Society’s 2013 statistics. Dr. Constantino G. Mendieta, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Miami attributes the buttock frenzy first, to Jennifer Lopez’s red carpet look in a green see-through dress that accentuated her curves and more recently, Kim Kardashian’s exceptionally voluptuous rear-end.
“The biggest age group that is having this procedure done is 25-45 year olds; however, I’ve also worked on several 60 and 70 year olds. As we age, the face drops and so does the butt, so buttock augmentation is about rejuvenating and lifting that buttock area. The procedure is three-dimensional because it is not only about making a buttock bigger, but also about reshaping the body,” explains Mendieta.
Buttock augmentation gives you curves you never had and makes you look sexy in clothes that you never felt you filled out properly.
The key here is confidence. Ultimately, what makes you feels good!
How you recontour or reshape a butt depends on how narrow or wide you want the butt so it is more patient-specific in terms of what they want.
