The cosmetics and beauty industry might be cashing in big on products that leave women feeling and looking good, but one of the not so glamorous aspects of it all is the impact it has on 1000s of women around the world.

Several products are launched day and night, all trying to outdo each other to give women that perfect look when stepping out. With social media giving people the opportunity to show the world what they are up to, many women feel pressured to constantly look good or better than other women in the room. Consequently, many resort to different procedures, including plastic surgeries.

In recent times butt augmentation has turned out as the most popular surgery for women seeking the perfect body shape. The procedure involves taking fat from an unwanted part of the body and injecting it into the buttocks. 

Earlier in 2018, Steve Harvey interviewed popular surgeons  Paul Nassif and Dr Dubrow from the Botched.  They shared harrowing details about the dangers and effects of butt augmentations. According to Dr Dubrow, the procedure is one of the most dangerous in the world that could cause death if not done well.

Despite these revealing details, the procedure is still prevalent in a few African countries and could increase to more in a few years.

Here are four African countries where the practice still thrives.
