Labiaplasty and Butt Lifts On the Rise in 2014

There is an upward trend in both labiaplasty and buttock augmentation surgeries underlined by recent findings by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Last year’s statistics reported that cosmetic procedures were up five percent from the previous year, the most popular procedures including breast implants and various facial procedures. This year, the trend continues and cosmetic procedures are on the rise however, the procedures seeing the most growth include two that fall below the belt.


Labiaplasty procedures saw an increase of 44 percent over the past year and buttock augmentation procedures increased by 58 percent. While these cosmetic procedures only represent a small portion of plastic surgery overall, their growth demonstrates a definitive trend.


Butt Lifts and Vagina Plastic Surgery: Why Go Below?

Candidates for labiaplasty include women who experience elongated labial tissue due to recent pregnancy, weight loss, menopause, hereditary conditions, the natural aging process, or other factors. This very common condition among women can result in discomfort, pain or self-consciousness and can be effectively reconstructed without harming surrounding tissues or affecting sexual sensation. Labiaplasty can result in one feeling more comfortable while wearing certain types of clothing, simply walking, exercising and engaging in sexual intimacy.


While some opt for labiaplasty to increase comfort, the procedure can also be performed to increase positive body image. Today’s grooming trends revolve around a silky smooth look. Underarms, legs, bikini lines and even full pubic hair elimination are achievable through laser hair removal. As a result of this popular style, women are paying more attention to the appearance of the lower region and wish to enhance their image.


Bums are Back!

Buttock augmentation has also gained a lot of interest and is seeing growth which is believed to continue. From the moment Pippa Middleton stepped onto the red carpet at the Royal Wedding, bums were back in. Her made-by-Zumba figure inspired a Facebook page, a lift in padded underwear sales and even a plastic surgery named after her!


The desire for buttock augmentation can be attributed to curvaceous celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson, who are inspiring people to go for the va-va-voom bombshell look rather than solely believe that thin is in. The procedure consists of fat grafting, or taking fat from unwanted areas, and transferring it to the posterior allowing for the surgeon to shape and mold the buttock.


This procedure has also been considered medically beneficial. Both males and females with desk jobs can encounter discomfort after sitting for extended periods of time. The additional padding and reshaping of the buttock allows people to sit comfortably and may help them maintain better posture and can reduce back pain.


When considering plastic surgery, it is paramount to seek out the services of a board-certified doctor versus someone whom you discovered online. If you are interested in buttock augmentation or other plastic surgery procedures, come in for a free consultation from board certified Dr. Paul Wigoda.
