What’s Driving The Buttock Augmentation Craze?

Buttock Augmentation Craze

So what’s this CRAZY obsession everyone has with BUTTS these days? Some Cosmetic surgeons say that buttocks augmentation is the new breast augmentations. In the last few years, women have become more interested in their rear ends than ever before.

So who can we “thank” or even some might say “blame” for this massive interest in butt shapes and size.

I’m sure we are all very aware that no two butts are created equal, and if you’ve ever looked around you would realise the different shapes that are out there.

What Causes the Different Types of butt Shapes?

Generally your skeletal structure determines the main framework for your body shape, and the overall shape that you end up with is determined by the distribution of fat and muscle on top of your skeleton. For the butt, the main factor which causes the particular shape of the buttocks is your pelvis, followed by your fat distribution which is largely genetically determined.

Well if you didn’t already know there are actually a few different types of butts that are mainly recognised which you can see below:

Bum Butt Shapes 

Square shaped: A square butt tends to look flat from the side, and almost a little masculine. Cosmetic surgeons find that this is the most commonly complained-about shape.

Round shaped:  Although attractive, the round butt is second to the heart-shaped in popularity, according to cosmetic surgeons.

Heart/Pear shaped: The heart- or A-shaped butt is typically considered the prettiest and most desirable shape. Because of the smaller waist and bigger hips, it comes closest to the universally ideal waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7.

Inverted/Triangle shaped: This is widely considered the least attractive butt shape, which gets its look from the presence of more fat in the waist and outer thighs. This is also the most challenging shape from a surgical perspective.

So out of the above shapes you can see why the heart shaped is considered the most attractive and the sexiest shaped butt. For example we have some icon celebrities that are very well known for their shape and size of their behinds. We have Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy azalea and many more women who have contributed to this massive craze that everyone has been having.


What you can do to create a better shape for your buttocks?

By performing the right kind of exercises, you can improve the look of your buttocks no matter what shape you may have. Exercise is number thing one that will target the glutes and build up those muscles that will give you a better shape. The stronger and bigger glutes means the sexier the booty will be!!

Another thing to keep in mind is Diet you want to have those surrounding areas for example hips and thighs structured and toned which will support the area and will complement the butt to stand out more.

There is also other option’s such as enhancement underwear and special clothing that is a great way to shape your booty to the way you want it to look.

So as mentioned above there are many ways to keep in shape and ensure you have a great looking behind!

And if that’s not going to do it for you or you just don’t have it in you to spend those long hours sweating it out in the gym and eating lean protein and veggies all day every day. There is a safe and effective way to now re-sculpt and contour the buttocks and waist area known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (or jump to before & after gallery). This is a 2 for 1 procedure that transfers the fat from one area into buttocks area to give you a more natural, harmonious and youthful appearance much like the “heart shaped” buttocks mentioned earlier.   



  1. It’s funny how out of the 3 people this article listed as being “behind the butt craze”, not one is a Black woman, who are widely known for naturally curvy bodies and butts. You include 2 women who had their butts and hips enhanced to replicate the butts and hips of Black women, and increase their desirability to Black men (look at both of their dating history). If you’re going to write an article on this topic, asking where the craze comes from, give credit where it’s due, and most definitely don’t use women who lie about the cosmetic work they’ve had as examples.
