New proof that big butts are huge: More than 13,000 people in the United States paid a plastic surgeon to enhance their butts last year, according to a new report just released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Butt-boosting surgeries were among the fastest growing cosmetic surgeries in 2014: There were 11,505 buttock augmentation procedures, up 15 percent from 2013; 1,863 butt implants, up 98 percent from 2013; and 3,505 butt lifts, up 44 percent since 2013.
While boob jobs, nose jobs, liposuction, eyelid surgery, and facelifts still remain more popular than butt enhancements, according to the report, ASPS president Scot Glasberg credits celebs like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez for the recent growth in butt surgeries [H/T The Washington Post].
A butt surgery can cost upwards of $10,000, depending on where you get it. Which means that Americans spent an estimated $68.7 million on their behinds last year. In case you don't have an extra $10K to pad your back pockets, there's a cheaper way to get an A-list ass: Exercise the butt you've got.
