A florida nurse named Marlene Chinea has spent over $10,000 on a Brazilian butt lift specifically to get Kim Kardashian’s derriere.
“No matter how much exercise I did, I’d never get the results I wanted,” Chinea, 36, told the Daily Mail. “I was OK with my bum before, but I thought a little more would accentuate my assets. I simply wanted more projection.”
She added: ‘I modelled my butt on Kim Kardashian. Kim is simply beautiful and anything she wears looks fabulous on her.’
Before getting the surgery, Marlene Chinea had to gain 20 pounds in order to have the operation, the procedure involved taking fat from other body parts and transferring it to her butt.
Chinea seems happy with the outcome. During the five hour procedure, the newly gained fat was removed from her arms, upper and lower back, abdomen, flanks and thighs by liposuction.
Chinea said: ‘I’ve done lots of shopping to replace my wardrobe. Clothes for the most part have to be high waisted.
Her surgery was performed by Dr. Michael Salzhauer (better known as Dr. Miami) who claims that the Brazilian butt lift is the fastest growing procedure in the United States.
“I have performed thousands of Brazilian Butt lifts,” Dr Salzhauer explains. “Somewhere between 4000-5000 over the last ten years. Year on year the amount of people having this surgery is basically doubling.”
Marlene Chinea said she was happy with the results of the surgery and she doesn’t plan to have any more surgery.
“I was so excited with my new body that I was sure to buy outfits that Kim K would wear,” she said. “I bought a couple of bodysuits and pencil skirts like she’s always wearing.”
“Many people in today’s society still ridicule plastic surgery, but I can attest that some results can never be achieved with diet and exercise alone,” she notes.
