The trend for a perky posterior first began with Beyonce’s natural and famously ‘bootylicious’ curves in the nineties, and was soon hijacked by the likes of Jennifer Lopez  and later on, Kim Kardashian.

And in recent years curves have become suspiciously pronounced, with reality stars and influencers including Kylie Jenner and Demi Rose sporting extreme hourglass figures.  

The trend has seen a huge 77.6 per cent increase in demand for the ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’ a procedure which sees fat taken from the waist, and injected into the hips and buttocks.

A Harley Street doctor previously told FEMAIL: ‘The hips are what my patients are asking for now, it is not just about the bottom.

‘It is all about a curvy body silhouette as a whole that they want to achieve,it is not about simply providing women with bigger bottoms.’

Speaking about the fat transfer surgery, which costs in the region of £6,500 to £10,000, he said: ‘My patients are increasingly coming and asking for to remodel their body to create  a perfect waist to hip measurement’.

However the controversial fat transfer procedure the highest death rate of all cosmetic procedures and is believed to cause one death in every 3,000 surgeries.

After a number of high profile deaths in 2019, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) advised its members not to carry out Brazilian butt lift surgery until more is known about safer techniques of fat injection into the bottom.

The world’s ‘most dangerous cosmetic procedure’

Since 2015, the number of butt lifts performed globally has grown by 77.6 per cent, according to a survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.  

While it’s the fastest-growing cosmetic surgery in the world, the procedure doesn’t come without risks. 

In 2017, a paper published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal revealed that three per cent of the 692 surgeons surveyed had experienced the death of a patient after performing the surgery. 

Overall, one in 3,000 BBLs resulted in death, making it the world’s most dangerous cosmetic procedure – and yet interest for the procedure continues to sky-rocket.
