Some like creams, others pop pills or splash out on padded panties.Emaciated catwalk queens are no role model in this West African nation which a few years ago wiggled its collective derriere to the tune of a smash hit titled Bobaraba – meaning "big bottom" in a local language.Padded panties and butt boosters on the other hand are less of a liability, and far cheaper at CFA9,000 francs a piece at Kader Camara's store.Women with financial means have the option of booty-boosting surgery abroad, and Parisian plastic surgeon Robin Mookherjee, who flies to nearby Dakar every month, claims to have treated "hundreds of women patients" from west Africa, notably from Ivory Coast, for 3,000 to 4,000 euros an operation.He says that even in 2012, after the Malian city of Timbuktu had come under Islamist attack, he performed surgery on women from the fabled town, more concerned about the legendary butts of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj, than the militant threat.
