Butt Implants and Lifts Are Fastest Growing Plastic Surgeries VadimGuzhva/Fotolia

The surgical procedure to enhance your junk in the trunk is currently the fastest growing plastic surgery in the United States, according to a new report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The annual report issued by the ASPS said that in the last 15 years, cosmetic procedures to enhance badonkadonks has increased by 115 percent overall, and from 2000 to 2015, the rate of people undergoing prodigious backside lifts rose by 252 percent.

The procedure to add an SUV in the pants is occurring every 30 minutes in the United States.

It appears that butt implants are the new breast implants.

But booty perfection will cost you.

Bonnie Baldwin, a plastic surgeon in Houston, said in an interview with Allure Magazine, "The average fees for the surgeon are $4,077 for the buttock lift with fat transfer and $4,580 for augmentation with implants. Buttock lifting by removing extra skin above the butt is an average of $4,509 for the surgeon fees."

A butt lift, also known as a Brazilian butt lift, involves removing fat from another part of your body and injecting that fat into your booty.

Another procedure is to insert silicone implants into the buttocks. An incision is made in the crease of the buttocks and an implant is place above or in the gluteal muscle.

These procedures are considered safe with implants that are medically approved by the FDA.

In the news, several people have died due to injections from nonmedical and unapproved materials into the area. These are not safe. The procedure should be performed in a doctor’s office by a plastic surgeon.

All surgeries have possible complications. In regards to butt lift complications, Baldwin said, "lumpiness, fat cysts, cellulite, asymmetry, blood clots and fat emboli, and possible loss of the fat grafted," are possible complications.

"Buttock lifts removing extra skin above the butt mound can have complications of separation of the incisions, poor scarring and volume loss of the buttock," she said.

"Infections are fortunately rare with implant surgery," New York City plastic surgeon David Hidalgo said.
