May 26, 2006, Newsletter Issue #17: Buttock Augmentation: You're Not Alone

Tip of the Week

"I like big butts and I cannot lie." No, that wasn't J.Lo. It's the song of the people who opted for 4,000 buttock lifts in 2004. The number of buttock augmentation surgeries increased 158 percent between 2000 and 2004, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. So if you like a firmer, more rounded rear, you're not alone. If you ordered butt augmentation through implants, take heart.

The average 2004 physician fee for butt augmentation was $3,630, although the total cost can run between $2,000-$10,000. As one exercise queen quipped, "If you're going to have a big butt, have a great big butt." Flabby or fat buttocks don't cut it. Here's the "but" you knew was coming: If you're considering butt lift surgery, don't get caught up in the crowd. Some hints: Incisions tend to be extensive--make sure they're placed as discreetly as possible. You won't be able to sit for a while, especially if you're a hip-hop operator taking calls all day. Keep fit and don't gain back weight after gastric bypass surgery if you want the results to last. Bruising can occur, so don't wear thong bikinis even if it's July! After all, droopy, fat buttocks don't work, but "phat" buttocks do.
