According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, butt augmentations saw a major increase in demand in 2014, with instances of implant procedures rising 98 per cent from the year before, and lifts rising 44 per cent.
A spokesperson for the organization told the New York Post that tush-enhancing trend was 'definitely still growing' in 2015, though official data will not be available until next month.
Dr. Matthew Schulman, a New York City-based plastic surgeon, told the Post that people even request Kim's behind by name and picture when they come in for an appointment, hoping for a backside that's 'big, with projection' like hers.
They also frequently ask for a bigger backside with 'big hips, too' like Nicki Minaj, a 'big and muscular butt' like Jennifer Lopez's, 'proportionate voluptuousness' like Sofia Vergara, or a 'perky and bubbly' butt like Jessica Biel's.
And it's not just in the US. In 2014, almost half of all British women who inquired about butt augmentations cited Kim as their role model for the perfect posterior.
