Perhaps the whole Pippa Middleton butt craze has gotten out of control. Good Morning America accompanied Christina Valdez from Miami while she got plastic surgery—specifically, while she got the fat sucked out of her stomach and put into her butt so that it would look just as nice as Pippa's does. According to GMA, the "Pippa Butt Lift" is actually a thing, and is being offered by plastic surgeons all over the world.

To get the surgery, Christina actually had to gain some weight, since new fat is apparently easier to reshape and put in other places than old fat is (that's dedication). The plastic surgeon that she went to, Dr. Constantino Mendieta, adds that 80% of his work is butt lifts, and 20% of that are specific requests for the butt of Pippa.
