Fastest-growing plastic surgery procedures? Butt implants, lifts

Tue, Mar 15, 2016

Plastic surgery procedures on the derriere are taking a front seat when it comes to popularity, a new report reveals.


Posterior procedures were the fastest-growing plastic surgery offerings in the United States last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The organization said buttock lifts rose 252 percent between 2000 and 2015 – with 4,767 procedures, up from 1,356.


The top enhancement procedures related to the rear end in 2015 were: buttock augmentation with fat grafting (nearly 15,000 procedures, up 28 percent from 2014); buttock lift (almost 4,800 procedures, up 36 percent from 2014), and butt implants (more than 2,500 procedures, up 36 percent from 2014).


Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic offers services that enhance the backside. Dr. Steven Schmidt, one of three plastic and cosmetic surgeons at the clinic, says demand for the procedure is growing in northeastern Wisconsin, too.


“While breast augmentations and facial procedures are still the most requested services in our area, rear-end augmentations are gaining in popularity,” Schmidt said. “As board-certified plastic surgeons, we are well-equipped to meet the demands of such trends. The tools and technologies we have ensure we are equipped to provide safe and precise care.”
