Black Beauty and the Brazilian Butt Lift

Twenty-three-year-old Shami wants a Brazilian Butt Lift. We follow her on a journey as she tries to make the decision on whether to go under the knife or not.

Twenty-three-year-old Shami wants a Brazilian Butt Lift, even though the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said it was the most dangerous cosmetic procedure to undergo.

Although the surgery attracts women of all ethnicities, many people say the results are modelled on black female bodies.

We follow Shami on a journey as she tries to make the decision on whether to go under the knife or not. Along the way she explores the pressures of needing to have the typical “curvy black woman aesthetic” alongside the taboo black women feel about having cosmetic procedures.
