Brazilian Butt Lift
Over the past few years, there have been an increasing number of people choosing to have cosmetic surgery to reshape their behind. A Brazilian butt lift, as it is commonly known, reshapes and improves the appearance of people’s buttocks, reducing sagging and increasing size. The patient can remove fat from other areas of their body, such as the stomach, hips or thighs, and have it transferred to their buttocks. This procedure has become particularly popular abroad, as it is more affordable in countries such as Rio de Janeiro. The reason this trend has become so popular is largely due to celebrity influence, with online personalities such as Kim Kardashian-West posting photographs online of her extreme figure.
