Madonna has never been a stranger to controversy and at 60 years old she’s still grabbing the headlines. After videos were released of the singer performing live on stage on New Year’s Eve, it appeared as though the star’s rear had been enhanced.
Now, fans are questioning whether Madge could have had bum implants or a Brazilian bum lift to achieve her impressive rear. So, which procedure could the Queen of Pop have undergone to enhance her buttocks?
Could Madonna be the latest celeb to undergo bum implants?
Looking at the photos, it does appear the unusually shaped bulge on Madonna’s rear is most likely down to a battery pack or sound equipment. However, it’s certainly possible the singer could have undergone a rear enhancing procedure as this is not the first time there’s been speculation about Madonna and changes to the appearance of her rear.
Performing with her son, the 60-year-old singer did appear to be sporting a curvier look and Madonna herself has done nothing to quiet the speculation as she posted on her Instagram the following message: “Desperately Seeking No Ones Approval………………. And Entitled to Free Agency Over My Body Like Everyone Else!! Thank you 2019 ! Its Going to Be an amazing Year!! ! #2019 #freedom#respect #nofear #nodiscrimination.”
Understanding bum enhancing procedures
Bum enhancement procedures are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and US. Expert London plastic surgeon, Paul Tulley, states: “Insertion of buttock implants is a procedure that has been performed in relatively small numbers in recent years. It involves the insertion of a silicone implant (firmer than a breast implant), into the buttock to improve volume and contour, for patients wanting to improve their buttock shape”.
He also goes on to highlight the potential dangers of the procedure:
“However, it has significant risks and is a more problematic procedure than many other cosmetic surgery procedures – there are significant risks of infection, implant extrusion, and persistent post-operative pain after surgery with a long recovery. For these reasons it has been replaced by fat transfer in the majority of patients – those who have spare fat available.”
Even though fat transfer procedures are generally safer, they still pose a risk of fat embolisms; a problem which can prove to be deadly. So, while these procedures can enhance the bum when performed by a qualified surgeon, patients do need to be aware of the risks involved.
If you are interested in a bum enhancing procedure, it is crucial you book a consultation with an expert plastic surgeon. They will be able to run through all of the risks and complications involved and help you to determine whether it is right for you.
