Excitement over "New" Buttock Augmentation Procedure Highlights Growing Demand

Recently a Florida plastic surgeon made a major media splash by promoting his new procedure, the "Miami thong lift." Although the procedure's name sounds new, there is nothing in the doctor's content to suggest that the procedure is anything more than our own beloved Brazilian Butt Lift procedure: buttock augmentation with fat transfer. In this procedure, of course, fat is borrowed from donor regions and added to the buttocks, where much of it becomes a permanent part of the buttock, providing lasting contouring.

Although the procedure is not new, the attention it is receiving does show that the demand for this procedure continues to grow. In Britain, where the Miami thong lift got picked up by the Daily Mail, demand for buttock augmentation has grown by 50% in recent years. In the US, statistics by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic surgery show that demand grew by almost 40% from 2008 to 2009 alone, and it has grown so precipitously since 1997 (when the organization began tracking) that figures for the early year are not even available.

Years ago it seemed buttock augmentation was a "fad" precipitated by the meteoric rise of J Lo and Beyoncé "Bootylicious" Knowles. Now, though, the continuing emphasis on this aspect of attractiveness, including the rise of new icons like Kim Kardashian, and trends like "booty shaking" contests show that odalisque beauty may be here to stay.
