Is The Popularity Of Butt Implants Distorting Our Body Goals?

January 19, 2016 3 min read

We all have body goals -- each and every one of us. We look at people we see on television, social media or in the pages of magazines and feel the unique mix of envy and inspiration that prompts us to head to the gym and work that much harder. But what if what you are looking at and aspiring to isn't even 'real?' A relatively new cosmetic procedure is taking hold and it is pushing our body expectations to the limits. Brazilian butt lifts are the latest thing in celebrity circles. From suspicions about the curvaceous Kardashian sisters and Iggy Azalea to, most recently, the before and after photos of Teen Mom 2 star  Kailyn Lowry, the topic is everywhere. Butt implants appear to be the new breast implants. They create a beauty standard that is not attainable through natural means but it is carried off in such a way that it can cause us to feel insecure about our natural shapes. Kailyn Lowry's pictures show what looks to be a painful surgery with a lengthy recovery. (She also reportedly had liposuction, a tummy tuck and breast augmentation). butt implant Making the decision to cosmetically alter your body is a profoundly personal one. We all have reasons for the decisions we make. We are not here to judge those decisions. But, as with any surgery, there are great risks to your health and the financial costs can be astronomical. Is it really worth it? Women are often looking to improve their backsides. They want high, firm, round butts and are willing to do just about anything to get them. This becomes a problem when we look at the way butt implants have created an impossible and unnatural standard of beauty. Are there women walking the planet who naturally have a backside like Nicki Minaj? Of course there are but they would be in the minority. For most women, that level of shapeliness is just not possible. [bctt tweet="Is The Popularity Of Butt Implants Distorting Our Body Goals?"] We must be realistic in our goals. It is okay to look at surgically enhanced bodies and want to improve your own but you have to remember that no amount of diet and exercise will get you those results. You can lift your butt and firm it up but you'll not wake up one day and be full on Kardashian sized. And you know what, that's just fine! You can improve your body composition in ways you've never imagined but don't get disappointed if you never manage to rock  a major bubble butt. By eating right and exercising, you can make your body look phenomenal. But at the end of the day, it will still be your body and that's a truly beautiful thing.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
