An exploration of butt lifts, and the complicated dynamics of the Miami 'recovery houses' that make them possible
In an in-depth feature for The New York Times, Sandra E. Garcia reports on the booming Brazilian Butt Lift business in Miami — and the dynamics of the 'recovery houses' that support it. As Garcia writes, "beauty, pain, race and money play out" in these post-surgical convalescent centers. Garcia also delves into race's complicated role in the procedure's popularity: "For Black women, many of whom have always possessed a version of the B.B.L. body, it is difficult to square this popularity with the fact that their natural bodies have been denigrated for generations," writes Garcia. "The idealized body, one that was considered unattainable for anyone other than celebrities, is now, technically, possible for everyday women to achieve. And Black women aren't immune to wanting a seemingly quick way of acquiring the figure that defines desire today." {The New York Times}
