Kim Kardashian Sparks Interest in Buttock Augmentation

kim-jen-beyonce spark interest in butt augmentationKim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyoncé are celebrities who Dr. Shlomo Widder hears mentioned often during consultations.  Patients of the “DC Butt Doctor” have sought buttock augmentation in record numbers this year, and daily inquiries are on the rise.  Many are expressing interest in achieving a look similar to one of those stars with the famous posteriors.

While some patients even express interest in surgery to emulate the buttock size and shape of Nicki Minaj, Dr. Widder counsels patients that although her look is fine for her role as an entertainer, her buttock implants fall outside the range of normal body proportions.  For the most long-lasting, positive results without later complication, Dr. Widder prefers to work within a more natural buttock implant size range.

The goal for each of Dr. Widder’s cosmetic procedures is to deliver a result that is natural-looking and in line with the patient’s personal aspirations.  To that end, he focuses on listening intently to each patient’s needs and desires during the consultation.  Because each person is unique and has specific goals, there is no churning out look-alikes at Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center.

Dr. Widder reflects that most patients want their buttocks to appear full on top, then to have a projection in the middle, and to complete the look with lateral fullness.  Others aren’t seeking fullness on the sides of the buttocks.  These preferences help dictate whether he will place the implants closer to or farther away from the midline.  For a tight, muscular look, they are placed closer to the midline, or the crack between the butt cheeks.  When placed farther laterally from the midline, a curvier, more feminine look is achieved.

Dr. Widder’s goal is to help women and men make their butts the very best.  Dr. Widder is the only plastic surgeon in the Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia area who offers buttock implants.

Botox Do’s and Don’ts

Botox VirginiaBotox injections are among the most popular cosmetic procedures available, and Dr. Shlomo Widder is committed to helping people have a Botox experience that keeps them both safe and looking natural.  Many people aren’t aware of the different choices among Botox procedures, which can lead to patients making choices that do not suit their needs.  Dr. Widder seeks to equip all patients with the knowledge they need while making decisions about Botox and other cosmetic procedures.

Botox, correctly injected, creates a positive interplay between facial muscles, thus producing its hallmark reduction in wrinkles.  However, injection mishaps are possible.  Injections too low on the forehead can produce a droopy brow due to temporary paralysis of all the forehead muscles.  This occurs because a small trauma and a bit of fluid results from each injection.  Gravity carries the Botox and fluid down from the injection site.  As it sinks too low, the “overdone” look is the result.  It is also possible to wind up with the unnatural “surprised” look from incorrect Botox injection.

Another aspect of Botox injections for patients to consider is how often to undergo the procedure.  According to Dr. Widder, the Botox effect may last up to eight months, though three or four months is average.  He recommends that most people repeat Botox treatments every three months.  After a recurring regimen every three months for about two years, the need for repeat treatments will generally be reduced to every 10 months to a year.

Though the word Botox comes from the scientific name Botulinum Toxin, it is quite safe when used properly.  While 5,000 units of Botox are considered lethal, the average cosmetic procedure uses only 100 units.  In addition to giving patients the right look, Dr. Widder is adamant about keeping all his Botox injections well within the margins of safety.

Trends and Motivations for Plastic Surgery for 20/30 Year Olds

trends and motivations in plastic surgeryTrends and motivations for plastic surgery vary from person to person, but younger people often have similar interests in specific procedures. Celebrities also have an impact on ones motivation to improve a particular aspect of the body. Dr. Widder explains some of the motivations he hears in his consultations that profoundly impact his patients decisions.

Q: Which plastic surgery procedures are the most popular for people in their 20’s and 30’s?

Breast implants and butt implants are very popular for patients in their 20’s and 30’s.

Q: What do you hear from your patients about why they choose buttock enhancement surgery and breast implants?

The reasons vary.  Everybody brings their own histories and their own aspirations for what they want to look like. Some do it for a functional reason, such as they would simply like their clothing to fit better.  Others are interested in clothes as well, but from a different perspective.  They may just want to look good in the latest fashions.  What many younger patients want most is a sexier, more attractive appearance in order to feel better about themselvs and possibly garner more attention.  Some also want to emulate celebrities like Kim Kardashian and J Lo.

Not long ago I had a patient who came in for a consultation for buttock enhancement surgery.  “Is it gonna look like J Lo?” she asked me.  I showed her pictures of a before and after case that seemed along the lines of what she was seeking and I challenged her to decide for herself: “Does this look like J Lo?”  The photo I presented showed a very, very nice result.  In my opinion, the shape of the buttocks was reminiscent of Jennifer Lopez’ figure.  I gave the patient time to compare shapes and sizes until we found the right celebrity look for her.

Q: Even though prospective patients mention various reasons, do you think enhancing sexual attractiveness is really the main goal?

Well, it is true that patients are concerned with the butt and the breasts because they are sexual targets. When you are young that is very important.  It’s also important for older people, but it is often not as intense an issue in later years because hormones levels tend to be a bit lower.  Cosmetic surgery can improve upon parts of the body and it can help make a person look and feel much more attractive.   I appreciate being able to do that for a person.  The enhancements are very exciting for younger individuals.  It can absolutely bring about advantages in one’s personal life, especially in the sexual realm.  Enhancing attractiveness can also cultivate advantages in other areas, such as in the workplace.

Whatever the reason, the forces that encourage people to have cosmetic surgery are incredibly powerful.  I respect the fact that patients choose to go through the discomfort and the inconvenience in order to improve on those areas they feel are deficient or less than optimal.  It is a big decision.  I take the decision-making period very seriously; I do my best to listen, provide guidance, and respect each patient’s needs and wishes.  As long as I feel that I can deliver what the patient is looking for, we move ahead with the procedure.

Q: What signs do you see or hear from your breast and butt implant patients that indicate how they feel before and after their procedures?

Afterward, you can see a new sparkle in their eyes.  They walk differently.  They have confidence.  When they come in for a consultation before surgery they have often heard good things about me, but I can see that they feel a bit unsure and they have concerns.  It looks to me as if they are thinking, “Am I going to have this surgery or not?  Will I be happy?”

Once they have it done, they are extremely happy.  You can see it in their eyes.  In my experience, eyes are the #1 indicator.  Try taking a look at pictures of before and after surgery and notice the eyes.  You’ll see that before surgery, many of them look dull and depressed.  Afterward, you can see a new energy projected from the eyes.  They’re brighter. It’s like there is a new confidence and a readiness to take on the world.
