What Defines a “Good Butt” from a “Bad Butt”
Although 2014 has affectionately been dubbed the “year of the rear,” reflective of the skyrocketing popularity of butt augmentation procedures, it doesn’t seem that this trend will be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, it’s been estimated that in 2015, a butt procedure was performed every 30 minutes. The rising popularity of butt augmentations may even be due in part to celebrity influence from the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, but there may also be an underlying societal shift in beauty standards at play.

We’ve begun to see a much broader acceptance and even celebration of a diverse range of body types, which may also be contributing to the increasing number of people seeking butt augmentations. Along with this positive trend, it’s important to note that getting the most out of your butt lift will very highly depend on the skill and expertise of your plastic surgeon. When considering a butt lift, here are the three key characteristics of a “good butt” to keep in mind.
1. Natural Movement and Aesthetics
Thanks to advancements in medical technology and surgical practice, butt lifts are actually a two-step process. First, fat is taken from another area of the body, then purified and injected into the butt area. Because this process utilizes a woman’s own cells rather than a silicone implant, a butt augmentation performed correctly can provide very natural-looking and naturally-moving results, because the injected fat is natural.

2. A Butt Augmentation Should Complement Your Shape
While different cultures and people may prefer varying shapes and sizes, a “good” butt augmentation will take into consideration the natural contours of your body and try to enhance them, rather than completely cover them up. Otherwise, a “bad” butt augmentation could create results that don’t appear to complement the rest of your body. This is where the skill and experience of a trusted plastic surgeon can make such a difference in the quality of the results you can expect.
3. Subtle Boosts Are In
Not everyone wants dramatic results that mimic celebrities like Nicki Minaj or Kim Kardashian. In fact, more and more women are requesting much subtler results, similar to Jennifer Lopez. Generally speaking, a tight, toned, and gently lifted look can be universally appealing, as well as complement many different body types. Working with the right plastic surgeon can help you achieve an effortless and very natural look.
