Last week, we reported on the recent plastic surgery statistics that were released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

We looked specifically at two procedures that have grown tremendously in popularity with women: labiaplasty and Brazilian butt lift surgery.

This week, we’ll peer into the reasons why women decide to get these particular procedures.

Brazilian Butt Lift  (Fat Transfer Butt Augmentation)

The trend is leaning towards fat transfer rather than implants for the BBL procedure. Some of the main reasons women are flocking to this procedure have to do with current body trends depicted in mainstream media.

With popular celebrity bodies like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Iggy Azalea (and hit songs like “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor), it’s no wonder women are more aware of their “assets” today.

Another reason why BBL is so popular is that the fat transfer type of butt augmentation is especially appealing to patients who do not wish to have foreign substances in their body. With fat injections to the butt, a woman can enhance her backside using 100% natural material: her own body fat.

A third reason why Brazilian lifts are increasing is due to the benefit of being able to reshape surrounding body areas with liposuction. In order for the surgeon to harvest enough fat to transplant to the buttocks, fat must be taken from other areas of the body via liposuction.

By taking fat from the hips, thighs and abdomen, this truly allows a patient to customize her results, giving her the figure she has been dreaming about.


This is a fairly new trend in the last decade or so, and for an interesting reason. In days gone by, women would simply accept whatever shape they had and did not question their appearance “down there”.

Today, however, the rise of adult films and the trend towards hair-free genitals (Brazilian waxing & laser hair removal) have made women acutely aware of the shape, size, and length of their labia.

In labiaplasty, the plastic surgeon trims the labia, or inner genital flaps, to the size and shape desired by the patient. In some cases, patients will seek labiaplasty for non-cosmetic reasons (to alleviate pain from pinching and tugging). However, many of the cases are to alter or correct appearance concerns.
