Singer, 24, left with 'unnatural' backside after having cheap enlargement surgery
It's true to say that, like any other trend, cosmetic surgery dips and surges in popularity. At the moment, with Kim Kardashian and her ilk expounding the benefits of a rounder and bigger derriere, more and more women are opting to modify their backsides through plastic surgery.
Indeed, according to a recent report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Brazilian butt lift was one of the fastest-growing plastic surgery procedures performed on people in the United States in 2018.

But there are risks to these kinds of operations, particularly when they are performed on the cheap by unlicensed practitioners who might take unnecessary risks that seriously undermine your health.
This week, Norwegian singer, influencer, and TV personality Sophie Elise has opened up about how she regrets the 'cheap' butt enlargement operation she went through in Turkey when she was a teen. In a post made to her 400,000 Instagram followers, Sophie told her fans that she's now jetting off to America to try to shrink her butt down to a more typical proportion.
In her candid Instagram post, Sophie wrote: "I’m tired of having an a** which doesn’t look natural. I didn't think about consistency and what I'd want to look like at 50-years-old. Now that I'm older, I think in a completely different way and the choices I make, whether physical or mental, should be ones I can live with forever."
She added: "I should have kept it private. But I have to blame myself when I've already dragged [my fans] into the process. So I have concluded not to share as much of this surgery. No before or after pictures, and no documentation of pain and the experience itself. Maybe this will be a small wake up call for anyone considering the cheapest operations."
So there you have it: if you're considering going under the knife, for the love of God, don't go for the cheap and cheerful option. Visit someone qualified, and never undergo any procedure without advice from your GP.
