ARE SILICON SHOTS AND BBL’S A TREND OF THE PAST FOR 2023?
In recent times, the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) has gained immense popularity, as more and more people aspire to attain a round and shapely bottom. However, the trend towards such butt enhancement procedures has faced criticism and safety concerns. In 2012, Cortney B featured a story article for The Source Magazine–Issue #252 titled ‘The Bottom Line,’ which explored the emergence of the silicon injection phase. Now, more than a decade later, we are observing the aftermath of these procedures as several women have had to go through removals of the injections due to their long-term effects.
In recent months, there has been a notable shift in attitude towards butt enhancement trends, with many denouncing them as dangerous. The topic has been widely discussed on social media, with many questioning which celebrities have undergone procedures to reverse the effects. While some celebrities, such as the Kardashians, have remained tight-lipped about their surgeries, others, including R&B singer K Michelle and Blac Chyna, have spoken out about the risks associated with such procedures.
Many influencers who once flaunted their surgically enhanced buttocks are now sharing their journeys about botched surgeries and more. Winter from the Bad Girls Club, for instance, revealed her 'Dorito' shaped bottom and the horrific recovery process she underwent to remove the fillers. Blac Chyna, who recently dissolved the fillers in her face, said that her bottom would get hot and she would get sick from the silicon. Rapper Dream Doll, who once boasted about her 'plastic' body, also shared her removal journey and opened up about going back and forth to the surgeon. She said, ‘it hurt and the pain made her want it out and she’s gone back 4 times to remove it’. Bad Girls Club Meghan James also explained how peer pressure encouraged her changes during her time on Basketball Wives.
Overall, the trend towards butt enhancement procedures continues to spark debate and controversy, with many individuals questioning whether the risks and long-term effects are worth it.
