Late last month, the Kardashian sisters made headlines when the hit show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” followed their antics to prove that Kim had not had butt implants.  Sisters Kourtney and Khloe pushed for Kim to have an x-ray done to silence online critics who had popped up stating that the reality TV star had undergone plastic surgery.

The big reveal, which you can see below, showcased an x-ray of Kourtney’s breast implants as a means of showing viewers what an implant looks like in an x-ray. This was followed by an x-ray of Kim’s buttocks, which clearly did not have an implant.

However, even if the x-ray did not reveal an implant, there is still no guarantee that Kim has not undergone work by a plastic surgeon.  Butt augmentation surgery, often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift, can enhance the buttocks without the need for an implant.  Instead, doctors use the patient’s own fat (removed via liposuction from another area of the body) to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks.  This fat, unlike an implant, would not show up in an x-ray.

Whether you believe Kim’s derriere is a blessing from the Gods or simply the handy work of a talented plastic surgeon, the controversy has made for some interesting TV and an even more interesting x-ray.  What are your thoughts on Kim’s infamous ass?  Do you believe she has simply lucked out with a beautiful backside, or does the credit go to an anonymous plastic surgeon?
