#Belfies Are the Latest Social Media Rage

May 29, 2015 | Brazilian Butt Lift, Butt Implant, Buttock Augmentation

buttWe all know what selfies are. Those often funny images people post of themselves, particularly of their faces. But if you haven’t heard of “Belfies”, these are the latest trend to hit social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and even YouTube. As funny as it sounds, these are images of big, round buttocks posted by women of their own butts, “butt selfies”!

It is unclear exactly where this recent fad started, but it could be due to the Kardashians, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez and other celebrities who have recently undergone “butt augmentations”. Butt augmentations for the last couple of years have been rising in the plastic surgery industry, with more women wanting to jump on the bandwagon and get those round, beautiful booties like the big stars.

Is this just another passing fancy, or are butt augmentations here to stay?

Brazilian Butt Lifts Result in Surge in Belfies

There are several ways women can achieve the beautiful buttocks like the celebrity superstars. Dr. Agullo is one of the leading butt augmentation surgeons in the Southwest part of the U.S., with two practices in El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM. Some women choose to go through the whole shebang, with butt implants and all, while others prefer some reshaping procedures.

Here are three ways you can get that #Belfie Booty:

  • Buttock Fat Injections – This is also called “fat grafting” or “Brazilian Butt Lift” in which the plastic surgeon removes fat from other parts of your body and then reapplies the fat into your butt to achieve a rounder, more voluptuous derriere. With BBL, the fat injections must be done with precision to achieve desired results and make the butt look smooth and natural, rather than lumpy. Dr. Agullo uses a combination of fat transfer with liposuction to create a beautiful “belfie-worthy” butt.
  • Butt Implants – Much like breast implants, butt implants are actually made of a solid silicone that doesn’t break. The implant is inserted and positioned into the buttock muscle to create a more volumizing, round effect. The implants also “lift” the butt.
  • Buttock Lift – You may just want to reshape your butt, so Dr. Agullo can reposition the fatty areas that are sagging and do a cleanup with the liposuction tool, while tightening and removing excess skin. This will lift your butt and make it look perkier. This is a good technique for people who already have enough “junk in the trunk” but who are just dissatisfied with the way it looks. The butt lift makes your butt look more shapely and proportionate with your body, giving you a nice effect.

All three of these options will give you a “Belfie” Butt that you can snap photos and post to social media, if that is what you want to do. However, that is not the real reason to get something major done to your body. The best reason is because you want more self-confidence and just to feel better about your appearance or the way you look in clothes.
