If you want a perfect rearview, apparently you need to look across the pond.
So-called British “commoner” Pippa Middleton has sparked a wave of surgery requests ever since she appeared in a form-fitting Alexander McQueen gown as maid-of-honor to big sister Kate (now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s) marriage to Prince William in April.
In particular, it was that back view of Pippa carefully carrying her older sister’s nine-foot-long train into the church that captivated plastic surgery lovers.
“The latest craze here in the U.S. and all over the world is to get the ‘Pippa Butt Lift,’” Miami-based celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendieta told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “Once the breast implants reigned supreme, now it is the buttocks that are considered a woman’s best asset.”
“The buttocks has been an increasing and escalating interest over the last four to five years, but the iconic figure was Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. Both have tremendous curves and large buttocks. While lots of people love the overall shape of those women, many felt those derrieres were just a bit too big,” Mendieta explained. “But ever since the royal wedding, Pippa Middleton has become the new queen of the booty! She opens the doors to those who did not know you could have a small, shapely and perky backside without the large size. Patients want to be more proportionate [with] buttocks that look natural and sexy and go with the rest of their body.”
Aside from the onslaught of Pippa-esque surgery requests, there are also entire websites and blogs now dedicated to the younger Middleton’s posterior, and “Appreciation” pages are even popping up on Facebook. Earlier this month, photographer Alison Jackson told the Daily Mail that she is working to create a Web series called, "How To Create The Perfect Pippa Bottom,” and Middleton’s Pilates instructor Margot Campbell has reportedly inked a book deal to detail just how one shape up like her famous client.
But it’s not just Middleton’s bottom half that has folks talking.
“I am definitely seeing a rise in Pippa-like features,” Constantino said. “People want to look sexy, elegant and petite.”
And according to Dr. Richard W. Fleming of the Beverly Hills Institute, who each year spotlights the star-studded body parts that are currently being most requested in the highly-cited “Hollywood’s Hottest Looks” survey, the Royal Middleton sibling's features are also in high-demand.
“People ask for what they see, and they are seeing a lot of the Middleton girls. Kate especially has been in the news non-stop for the past two months and the public adores her. She has impacted everything in the beauty and fashion industry – including plastic surgery requests – because of her beautiful natural looks, her polished appearance, her stylish approach to dress,” he said. “The most requested features of both girls are their eyes and their nose. Both have beautiful, happy smiling eyes and very natural, perfectly proportional noses. ippa has a more curvaceous yet lean body so we are getting lots of requests from patients asking for liposuction and body contouring to get the ‘Pippa Body.’”
So what is it about these twentysomething Bucklebury natives that has Hollywood hotties in awe?
“The Middleton girls are fresh and natural looking, they are the epitome of youth, and they're happy people – everything about their physical presence is happy and natural. They are ideally natural looking and their beauty is unpretentious,” Fleming added. “We should all be so lucky to have their happiness, physical features and everything that goes with it. They represent blooming youth at its shiny best and it is fabulous to just watch it slowly mature before our eyes.”
