Kim Kardashian

Austin (KXAN) – A list of 2013’s most popular cosmetic procedures shows that Brazilian butt lifts are quickly rising to the top. Could it be Kim Kardashian’s fault?

Dr. Mahlon Kerr with Synergy Plastic Surgery says that some people revere her as having the perfect female figure and may want to emulate her curves.

Lots of women interested may have just had a baby and want some of the left over body fat moved around.

The numbers show the procedure could keep gaining in popularity. 10,000 operations happened in 2013. That’s up from 8,500 in 2012.

Cosmetic surgery, in general, continues to grow as people feel like making some improvements to their appearance. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
