Other superstars that had their butt implants OR suspected to have butt implants include superstars like Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez.

Butt Augmentation and Butt Implants Demand are Rising
It has been reported in NBC news that the demand for butt implants and butt lifts are growing since 2014. This trend is set to continue into 2016. In fact, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Reports, buttock augmentation or labiaplasty, had the most significant percentage increase of 58% and 44% respectively compared to 2012 amongst all other plastic surgery procedures.
Most Popular – The Brazilian Butt Lift
One of the most popular kind of butt augmentation is called the Brazilian Butt lift. The Brazilian Butt lift is a procedure where fat is taken from areas where patient least want them and then injected into their “you know where”. Most of the time, the unwanted fat is taken from the stomach or thighs of the patient.
Though it is still lagging behind the most popular plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, eyelid surgery and liposuction, the cost of butt augmentation does not come cheap. A typical butt augmentation procedure will set you back by around $12500.
Fats In Your Stomach And Thighs can Help
If you are endowed with enough fats in your stomach or thighs, things are pretty straight forward. But if you are naturally short of disposable fats, then the only option is to have butt implants to get your butt looking perky and sexy. However, butt implants are usually made of silicone and we know the risks involved. Drawing from the “explosive” experiences of silicone breast implants, it is definitely unwise to overdo butt implants, because it is an area under intense pressure while seated. Most doctors say that buttock implants are safer because they are made of soft silicone rubber and not silicone gel.
But didn’t most doctors say silicone breast implants were safe as well?
Butt Augmentation and Butt Implants Recovery time
The recovery time for butt implants and the Brazilian Butt lift is about two weeks. During the recovery process, you are not supposed to sit at all. There is a special outfit that will help hold the butt in place, which works very much like a bra for your boobs. You will be told to lie on your sides or your tummy during the crucial recovery phase.
Just so you know, butt implants risks include infection, scarring, nerve damage, implant rupture or explosion, implant migration and seroma.
This latest plastic surgery trend of butt augmentation and butt implants will continue for some time. Some observers say that it is just a fad, led by some celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Lil Kim who have been flaunting their rear assets. Perhaps its really a trend that will die down in a few years. But we just hope that things will always be under control till the slim and athletic look is preferred once again.
So if you are still after the Kim Kardashian Butt, you have been warned.
