The “Kardashian Effect” on Plastic Surgery

Monday, November 16th, 2015

A new trend is becoming more popularized in the plastic surgery industry as more women aim to have that curvy body a la Kim Kardashian. The Brazilian butt lift is now slowly becoming one of the most performed procedures in cosmetic plastic surgery.

Barbara Mendoza, the owner of BM Skincare, is a 38-year old aesthetician who wants a body as young-looking as her face. She said, “I’m from Venezuela, so it’s normal in my country to be curvy. I was thinking more like where I come from.”

To have the voluptuous body she wanted, Mendoza visited Utopia Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and talked to Dr. Franklin Rose. Dr. Rose performed liposuction on Mendoza’s mid section and transferred the fat into her buttocks to achieve that “Kardashian Effect.”

Dr. Rose stated that, “It’s very common for us to do liposuction, tummy tuck, maybe even some breast work at the same time we’re doing the buttock lift.” It costs around $5,000 up to $6,000 to get the famed Brazilian butt lift.

Mendoza also added that undergoing the procedure helped her stay in shape. “When you have surgeries, you have to go to the gym, but you feel more healthy,” she said. She feels a lot more confident now because when she sees her reflection, she likes what she’s seeing and how she feels.

People usually look and sometimes even stare at people they find attractive and it seems like more people are now paying her attention. She’s also slowly getting used to the comments she’s getting from both men and women.

“Sometimes I feel nervous because they look at me like, wow. That makes me feel weird but I’m OK with that. I know this sounds superficial, but I feel beautiful. I feel sexy. I feel sensual, ” she said.
