Pippa Middleton's Derriere Inspires New Plastic Surgery Trend [PHOTOS]
Pippa's curvy behind is the inspiration for a new plastic surgery method called the "Pippa butt lift."
Because of the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown she wore on the day of her sister's royal wedding, Pippa Middleton's physique became an instant sensation. The attention focused solely on her shapely behind, and since then, it became a media frenzy - so much that it inspired a plastic surgery craze to enhance and improve a woman's behind.
Called the "Pippa butt lift," the procedure is done a normal butt lift is, only with Pippa's name attached to it. Pippa even got Kanye West's attention, with the rapper even proposing for the younger Middleton to be the model of his lingerie line.In the world of Facebook, Pippa is coined as "Her Royal Hotness," because of this trait, with many people creating fan pages so they won't fall behind on updates and fashion reports regarding Pippa.
"In that wedding gown, she created a stir. People want those dimensions. She's just gorgeous." said plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendiata to Good Morning America. Mendiata added that 80 percent of all his surgeries are butt lifts, with 20 percent of patients asking for Pippa Middleton's rear. A single mother from Miami, Christina Valdez, was one of those who wanted a behind just like Pippa's and opted for the surgical method to gain it.
"She's got a nice rump that's not too big. Her frame just looked incredible in that dress. I was like, 'That's it. This is it, I just have to look like her. If she can look petite and great and still have a nice backside to her, so can I," said Valdez in a report by ABC.com.
"I've always had a little bit of a complex with my stomach and trying to fill in the back side a little more, I would absolutely love to be able to wear a nice fitted dress and have my waistline back and a nice rump to go with it." added Valdez, who got the procedure from Mendiata just weeks after the wedding.
Mendiata injected fat from Valdez' stomach that was transferred to her lower end to perfect the Pippa Middleton pear-shape she was going for. Six weeks later, Valdez claims she is satisfied with the results despite going under the painstaking healing process.
"I love the results, it looks beautiful, feels great and I feel sexy." said Valdez in the same report.
