“It’s interesting because years ago people thought JLo had a big butt,” social and consumer psychologist Debbie Then, PhD, tells Yahoo Health. While people may not have desired a larger posterior years ago, these days, big butts are “being sought after.”
In fact, buttock augmentation procedures have increased by 58 percent last year, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. “Over the past decade, we’ve seen a cultural shift toward a greater acceptance of and a desire for a rounder, more prominent derriere in specific regions across the country, so the increase in buttock augmentation procedures is not that surprising,” Jack Fisher, MD, president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, said in a press release.
We told you so! Looking forward to a big 2015!
