Almost half of all British women who enquired about improving their bottom with the help of cosmetic surgery cited Kim as their role model for the perfect posterior according to the Dailymail.
So popular is the 33-year-old’s shapely bottom that during the last year it has become one of the biggest trends in cosmetic surgery and is now referred to simply as ‘The Kim’, according to research.
Mrs West has pushed diminutive pop princess Kylie Minogue into second place in the battle of the bottoms and also pipped Beyonce, who came third in the vote, to the title.
Longevita plastic surgeon Prof. Dr. Fuat Yuksel, who commissioned the research, said: ‘Kim has been popular among women seeking bottom augmentation or “Brazilian butt lifts” as they are more commonly known, for a few years, but in the last 12 months we’ve had a massive rise in the numbers asking for a Kim Kardashian bum.
‘The procedure is performed through liposuctioned fatty tissue being injected into the buttocks.
‘Kim has risen from just outside the top ten to the number one position in record time and is a firm favourite among women in the UK and elsewhere around the world.
‘The Brazilian lift is now one of the most highly sought-after procedures we do – we’ve seen a 200 per cent increase in the number of UK enquiries for this procedure in the last 12 months alone. British women love beauties like Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian who have bigger bums and are not afraid to flaunt them.’
The 33-year-old mother of one reportedly feels ‘sexier’ the bigger her behind gets and in spite of denying surgery in the past, Kim has allegedly splashed out £12,000 on bottom-boosting injections.
A source told Closer magazine: ‘Kim’s been focusing on her bum a lot lately – it’s becoming almost obsessive. She says the bigger it is, the sexier she feels. But Kim’s obsession is starting to worry her friends – they’re concerned she’ll take things too far.
‘Kim says she wants an eye-popping booty that everyone notices. It’s part of her brand.’
