According to Lil Baby, the surgical procedure has become over-saturated.
The Social Media Craze
During a press run for his recent album on “The Experience” Podcast, Lil Baby talked about his preference when it comes to women. Soon enough, the conversation veered off into the topic of the notorious Brazillian Butt Lift procedure.
The rapper said he likes fuller women but does not discriminate against smaller-shaped women.
“I like thick girls, but I ain’t against skinny girls,” said Lil Baby. “I used to be, though. I used to didn’t like skinny girls. Now, skinny girls cool. I like ’em.”
When the interviewer asked the rapper about his thoughts on the BBL surgery and whether it has become outdated, the Atlanta native had some thoughts that seemed to think that the surgery lacked exclusivity.
“I don’t really know if it’s going out of style. It’s like everybody got it now. You know how it is. When everybody got something, it kinda go out of style then…That’s why it’s kinda played out a little bit. Regular girls. Rich girls. Broke girls. That’s when it’s played out,” said Lil Baby.
Over the past ten years, BBL surgeries have become a cosmetic staple. The aesthetic that the procedure has created is flooded across social media, often in the form of ultra-sexy pictures. Many celebrities and social media influencers have heightened the trend by increasingly flaunting the procedures in ultra-chic clothing. At first, several people were reluctant to admit that they had done the surgery, but people are increasingly becoming more vocal about the procedure.
Many Dangers Down The Line
Despite the many dangers associated with the surgery, according to medical personnel, Lil Baby’s comments point to the reality that the surgery has not waned in popularity. The Brazilian Butt Lift is also a highly lucrative industry, and as worldwide demand continues to skyrocket, so does the industry itself. According to reports, Butt augmentation surgery is an industry valued at $1.5 billion in 2020, and that number is estimated to continue to grow and reach $6.6 billion by the year 2028. The surgeries are costly and range from a few thousand dollars upwards. Medical professionals have also said that there are many risks associated with the surgery, many which show up in later years.
