Wait - How Many People Got Butt Implants Last Year?
2014 was the year of Nicki Minaj's “Anaconda,” J. Lo's and Iggy Azalea's “Booty,” Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass," and Kim Kardashian’s Paper magazine cover—so it should come as no surprise to anyone it has now officially been deemed the year of the booty: Butt surgery was the fastest growing cosmetic surgery in 2014, according to a new report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). (Even though it only ranked fourth on the body parts people want to work out.) More than 13,000 people—that’s right, it’s not just the ladies that want more junk in the trunk—in the United States went to a plastic surgeon for butt enhancements last year. That includes buttock augmentations, which were up 15 percent; butt lifts, up 44 percent; and butt implants, up a whopping 98 percent from the year before.

And there’s no question to why the derriere division is skyrocketing: "The media effect, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, are having a phenomenal effect on what patients want, what they are coming in and asking for," said ASPS president Scot Glasberg.
