No cosmetic procedure has seen such swift increases in popularity as the Brazilian butt lift. But why are people all around the world choosing this procedure so often and what is drawing them to it?
According to the BBC, Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, a world-famous Brazilian surgeon, was the man who invented this particular procedure. As stated by another plastic surgeon, British doctor Marc Pacifico, saying that Dr. Pitanguy was merely the inventor of the Brazilian butt lift “trivializes his contribution to plastic surgery.”
“He singularly advanced techniques in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery like breast reconstructions and rhinoplasty,” Dr. Pacifico says.
Dr. Pitanguy also had an effect on how tummy tucks and face-lifts are performed today. However, the BBL is one of his most famous procedures for how it removes the fat found in other parts of the body and reuses it to lift and plump the buttocks area.
Popularity of the BBL
Many people in Brazil are especially fascinated with and give special attention to the booty. This is partially because this area of the world is hotter than many other places, and therefore, residents are accustomed to showing off more skin. It is also because of the popularity of butts in Brazilian poetry and music, which, as stated by the BBC, has been a staple in these mediums throughout the 20th century.
The country also started a butt-judging contest called the Miss Bumbum competition in 2011 where, every year, they crown “Miss Butt” from a group of hopefuls. But Brazil isn’t the only place where derrieres have become a focal point.
In the United States, the popularity of celebrities like Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian has caused regular people to try and recreate the same body shape. And with more attention on this area, fat transfer butt lifts, have increased in this country and beyond.
According to the International Society of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery, almost 320,000 cosmetic surgeries concerning the buttocks were performed around the world in 2015. This was a 30 percent increase from 2014.
