Demand for butt implants saw huge spike during pandemic

New data shows butt implants have become the latest plastic surgery trend everyone is getting behind. 

Figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed a butt load of people received the procedure in 2020 amid the pandemic.

While Botox and soft tissue fillers topped the organization's 2020 National Plastic Surgery Statistics in terms of demand, the new figures showed butt implants jumped 22 percent between last year and the year before.

The increase represents the largest for any of the list of statistics for cosmetic procedures, according to Bloomberg News. Hair transplants reportedly saw the biggest drop in the same time frame. 

Dermatologist Ava Shamban tied the recent spike to the ongoing pandemic, which saw a chunk of the nation working remotely to comply with coronavirus restrictions. Shamban called it "modern-day 'secretary spread,' or a general flattening of the buttocks" in a statement to the news outlet.

She also noted the potential influence of social media. 

"Presumably, seeing the higher, tighter rounder assets on social media or any number of reality distractions, had patients researching and ultimately scheduling procedures to give their bottom line a much-needed boost," she told Bloomberg News.
