Big perky butts are a trend on the rise. Kailyn Lowry, Jenna Jameson, Cardi B, and Erica Jean have all allegedly had their butts enhanced. A butt lift surgery for them probably wasn’t a major investment. But is it the right choice for you? Are there any alternatives?

How High Is High Enough?

Celebrities usually set the trends for the next decade or so. Remember that 10 years ago having a small butt was “in”, but now having a bootilicious behind is in. But, just how perky is perky enough?

Says an article posted by the UK-based Daily Mail, “45 degrees . . . that’s the perfect angle between a woman’s bottom and her spine.” Why? The article continues, “[in the past,] such an angle would have given a woman an advantage while pregnant in early hunter-gatherer societies and so has evolved as being seen as attractive around the world, they claim.”

A 45-degree angle, just half of a right angle. How does that mean having a big butt is better? Citing a third-party study*, the Daily Mail explains, “Most of the men [interviewed] were significantly more attracted to those with a spine curve of 45.5 degrees. Analysis of the results also found that the preference for this level of spine curve was ‘unequivocally not a by-product of a preference for buttock mass.'” What does this all mean?

Simply put, one of the doctors conducting the experiment concludes, “men who think they like big bottoms may actually be more into spines.” In fact, “men may be directing their attention to the butt and obtaining information about women’s spines.”

Do you believe this? We don’t. Logically what man walks around thinking about the curvature and angle of his partner’s behind. What if a man finds another man’s butt attractive? Or, if a woman finds another woman’s behind intriguing? The study is, of course, flawed and we rarely cite studies like these.* However, it made a point: big butts are a big deal.

Your Options

If you opt to have a butt lift, you should know that you have a million options. Well, maybe not exactly a million. But, you have more options than just surgery.

Various physicians are now offering non-surgical, minimally-invasive butt lifts. Different from the Brazilian butt lift, where fat is transferred from the stomach or thighs to the butt, these procedures require very little downtime and involve no knives.

Such a lift often involves a series of treatment sessions, wherein injections of a dermal filler are administered to continually raise and plump your butt to your liking. It’s a process that’s virtually pain-free and requires very little time. Some fillers options include Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero, but, the most popular is Sculptra.

Check out this article we posted on Sculptra’s uniqueness. But, in short, the reason Sculptra is so popular for butt and breast lifts is that it’s designed to give subtle yet strong long-lasting effective results. Comparatively speaking, Sculptra produces more dramatic and longer-lasting outcomes than other fillers. What’s more, Sculptra’s formula even promotes collagen production in the body. 

Is A Butt Lift Right For You?

All this being said, is a butt lift right for you? Only you can decide that. But, if you opt for a non-surgical lift, make sure to visit a knowledgable physician. A doctor who can understand exactly what you want can choose the right product and the correct amount for you.
