The Middleton Effect
This April, nobody was to know that the lasting impact of the Royal Wedding was to come not from Kate, but from her sister Pippa. Specifically, the bridesmaid dress that she wore and the shapes and curves of her bottom within it. Initially the hysteria towards the look was confined to social media sites and women’s fashion magazines. Now though, it is the turn of the plastic surgery industry to realise the demand from the public to emulate Pippa Middleton’s derrière.
Plastic surgeons have reported a huge rise in women requesting a “Pippa bum lift.” Particularly so in the US, which at times seems more interested in our Royal family than many of us are back in the UK. The true question I suppose is whether more people are seeking plastic surgery as a result of this or, as is more likely, those people who were looking for surgery anyway have now set Pippa as the benchmark to their desires.
One American woman who recently underwent such surgery said “She’s (Pippa) got a nice rump that’s not too big. Her frame just looked incredible in that dress. I was like, that’s it, this is it, I just have to look like her.” – source
There’s little doubt that Pippa sent tongues wagging with the gown she chose to wear for her sisters big day. The situation is not uncommon and there are many examples over the past years of people seeking to achieve the looks of celebrities or their hero’s.
Getting a buttock lift costs around £3000 in the UK and it is important that you consult an expert and qualified plastic surgeon before considering the operation. Done properly, cosmetic surgery on buttocks or breasts can enhance somebody’s life and give them the confidence to open doors that would normally have been shut to them. It is not a decision to be taken lightly though and people need to be aware of all the facts before wishing to emulate Miss Middleton.
For now though, it seems the craze to style yourself on those in the media shows no signs of abating. It seems that Pippa will now be able to see her bottom on several people beside herself over the years to come.
