According to Georgia Plastic, butt injections are very popular in the state of Georgia. Many women have undergone drastic measures to fit in with Atlanta’s big booty culture by receiving these surgeries. Some of these procedures require the injection of silicone, hydrogel, and cement within the bottom. The “safer” procedures involve injection of fat cells from other parts of the body. All of these procedures are life threating; however, many have been satisfied with their outcome. In some cases, these procedures may be viewed as lacking self-confidence, however in the strip culture these procedures are stamps of approval to help make more money. Even though many strippers may receive surgery there are others who are completely fine with the bodies that they have. In addition to their physiques, they often spend time on pampering their appearance with makeup, hair and costumes. These factors play an important role in enforcing their attitude and personality during of their performances.
