Why 2016 has been the year of the butt lift
It only seems like last week that red carpets and magazines were full of your favourite stars flaunting their cleavage in low cut dresses and tops, but whilst some are still following this look, the trend has drifted a little further south in the last few years, with 2016 being the year that the bum took on a life of its own with voluptuous rear ends becoming the hottest trend.
Reality stars such as the Kardashians and pop singers, Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé are all leading the way in showing off their buttocks in designer threads on social media, videos and publications. It’s not breaking news that celebrities have been an influence on the masses, especially when it comes to latest trends.
L.A. celebrity trainer Ky Evans, whose clients include Sophia Bush, Marcia Cross, Rosario Dawson and UFC star Ronda Rousey, to name a few, credits high profile women’s new focus on fitness and their desire to be and look strong as the main reason for this new shift to the butt, saying:
“The glutes pay a huge part in that. Women are embracing their inner athlete and warrior more than ever. Men are still ego-based when they train, but women will get down and dirty and have a way higher pain threshold. It takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears — there is nothing like training your glutes and legs to failure.”
“A well-toned butt isn’t just nice and curvy, but it’s also one of the strongest group of muscles in your body and can help improve posture; alleviate lower back, hip and knee pain; improve athletic performance, increase bone density and help [aid] fat loss.”
Whilst stars claim their bigger derrières are down to long hours in the gym, there is another way; the Brazilian butt lift. This involves removing excess fat from a part of the body and injecting it into the buttocks to enlarge it.
Last year the fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedure was the fastest growing procedure with, on average, one being performed every 30 minutes during 2015, but the Brazilian butt lift has stormed forward in 2016 in part to being not as invasive as implants.
NYC board-certified plastic surgeon Dr Matthew Schulman said the patients he sees coming in for a perkier posterior include; “professionals in the entertainment industry, millennials invested in pop culture and patients who culturally find larger butts attractive. Many bring in photos of Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose, Kylie Jenner and Iggy Azalea.” He added that his patients feel more confident, sexier and more womanly after undergoing the procedure.
