Increased Interest In Butt Implants

There is a growing interest in buttock augmentation surgery in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. Doctor Widder discuses the increasing interest in buttock implants:

Q: What are some of the ways you’ve noticed a growth in interest in buttock enhancement?

I’ve definitely had increased requests for buttock enhancement. Not long ago, the New York Daily News ran a story about the trend.  A lot of women want to achieve a look similar to famous women like Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Biel. The “S-Curve” surgery has recently become popular to enhance the butt.  In this procedure, fat is used from other parts of the body like the abdomen or thighs. But from my observations in my practice of patients who had fat injections by other plastic surgeons,  the results of this type of operation do not last.

In addition to the increased number of buttock implants I’ve been doing, I’ve also been asked more frequently to repair butt surgeries gone wrong. I find that it takes about a year for fat placed in the buttocks from other areas of the body to disappear.  Implants are the permanent solution to achieve the desired butt shape.  I’ve been specializing in this procedure for over ten years, and have definitely noticed that there’s more interest today.

Q: Are buttock implants as popular as breast implants today?

Buttock enhancement surgery is getting the kind of interest that breast enhancement surgery did in the 1990s.  Many of the people getting it are inspired by the shapely look of celebrities, and I am always so happy when I am able to give someone the result they really want. It is true that this surgery is becoming more popular, but that doesn’t mean that breast enhancement has been forgotten. I still receive a large number of requests for breast surgery.

Q: Are the overall cultural aesthetics changing to embrace the fuller bottom look?

Well, it is definitely a trend. Curves are being celebrated.  As a matter of fact, the Kardashian sisters have launched a clothing line, and this line is made for women with well-rounded buttocks.  It is called the Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins, and there was a big celebration for the kick-off of the fashion line in London. The way these clothes are cut definitely show off a nicely shaped butt and really are good for the figure a woman will have after implants. I think these kinds of changes in the fashion industry show that this kind of body is becoming more desirable.
