You too can have Pippa's shapely behind
Pippa Middleton may not have won Britain's Rear of the Year contest earlier this year, but her famous behind is evidently helping a lot of plastic surgeons to early retirement.
Earlier this month, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery declared that Pippa had started a new trend:
Plastic surgeons tell the news source that Middleton's has become the most-popular and most-requested celebrity bottom, making Jennifer Lopez's, Beyonce's, Serena Williams' and Kim Kardashian's derrieres things of the past.
"In that wedding gown, she created a stir," Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendieta told "Good Morning America." "People want those dimensions. She's just gorgeous." Mendieta, author of the book "The Art of Gluteal Sculping," says 80 percent of his cosmetic work is now butt lifts, with 20 percent of those requests made specifically for achieving Middleton's rear end.
Here's the video:
Before you get too excited, here's how the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery describes the ideal candidate for the procedure.
Patients looking to enhance the appearance of their rear ends have a few options. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, good candidates for lower body lift surgery often have loose skin in their buttocks and on the back of their thighs. A board-certified plastic surgeon can help you determine whether this procedure will help you achieve the desired result.
The Daily Mail has found at least one happy customer.
"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.'"
But if you're lacking in adequate quantites of loose skin on your buttocks and thighs (or the $15,000-$20,000 it will set you back), Pippa long ago revealed her secret: Pilates. We're still waiting for somebody to declare a new Pilates trend.
