In today’s day and age, butt implants seem to be the new version of getting a nose job. Many women, not only those in urban music videos, seem to be getting the recently popular plastic surgery procedure done. Over the past couple of years, more and more women have been in headlines for getting butt injections, many of them unfortunately being botched jobs done on the black market.
While many women in the spotlight have tried to hide that they have had the augmentation, some, such as rapper Nicki Minaj, have been a bit more vocal. Ever since she attained stardom, there have been rumors that she had butt injections, due to the size of her derriere. In 2011, she finally addressed the speculation, rapping in Big Sean’s song “Dance,” “Kiss my a—and my an—cuz it’s finaly famous/And it’s finally soft, yeah it’s finally solved!/I don’t know man, guess them a—shots wore off!”
After becoming a popular surgery procedure, in part due to the popularity of curvy video vixens in hip-hop music videos, many women sought injections on the black market, with sometimes deadly results. Last January, Memphis model Natasha Stewart, also known as “Pebbelz Da Model” was charged with murder and is facing a life sentence in jail after illegally injecting a woman in Atlanta with concrete, which resulted in the victim’s death.
Now, reality star and video model Nya Lee, who is featured on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop,” is showing what happens behind-the-scenes when women get butt implant surgery. The model, who got the procedure done from a professional as opposed to someone who is not certified, documented herself getting not only implants, but liposuction as well. In the NSFW videos, Nya advocates plastic surgery as a way for self-liberation. “Get your liposuction get your but lift get anything that you think on your body is…you know not so perfect, and you want to change…change whatever little flaw that you may think you have…I want you guys to see I’m totally comfortable with everyone knowing that I definitely went through plastic surgery,” Nya Lee says in one of the videos.
While she may have gone through the procedure the legal way, thousands of women are getting highly dangerous black market buttocks injections, and ending up with skin infections and absecesses on their behinds. "Usually it's industrial silicone, it's the stuff that you buy at Home Depot," Dr. Renato Saltz, president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery told ABC about the unusual injections.
