Butt Trends Throughout the Years

Just like fashion, body types change throughout the years as well. At one time, “skinny” was the most sought after body type, but we have moved into a period where curves are prioritized. The fit and in shape look has become the new model archetype, and the question is no longer what size are you, but how much do you squat? The focus of the “ideal body” today revolves around the butt, however, this has not always been the case. Just like everything else in life, body image is a fleeting fad that changes constantly, so let’s look back at all the different butt trends throughout the years. Moein Surgical Arts can help you achieve your ideal body with a Brazilian butt lift; contact them today to schedule a consultation and discuss options.

Beginning of the 20th Century

As the 1900’s started, the trending butt style was round and prominent. The ideal women was considered a “Gibson Girl” named after famous illustrator Charles Gibson who portrayed women with an hourglass figure and pronounced butt. At the time, women were becoming more independent and educated, but these illustrations were Gibson’s way of belittling that reform. No matter his intention, it created an atmosphere where most women desired to look like his illustrations and become the next Gibson model.

1920’s

As a stark contrast to the “Gibson Girl”, the era of flappers became obsessed with no curves. Not only was a flat butt the ideal body for this decade, but a flat chest, thighs, and stomach. The style of dress conformed nicely to the boyish figure that most women were striving towards.

1930’s to 1950’s

The 30’s saw a shift back towards a curvy appeal, but it did not reach its fruition until the 1950’s. You would see women utilizing weight gainers to try and stay relevant and have that curvy, hourglass shape that was popular 50 years earlier.

1960’s

Just like a perfectly rounded balloon that got too big, the butt trend popped again to tiny, flat butts. Can you guess where the trend continued from here?

1970’s to 1990’s

Although the trend didn’t lean into round, curvy butts as much as it did from the 30’s to 50’s, the trend still favored bigger butts. The priority was on fitness this time, so having slight curves and rounded butt was acceptable if it was part of the whole package. This athletic look continued to build to prominence until the late 1990’s.

2000’s to Now

The trend shifted even further towards a big, rounded butt, as long as it was still considered “in-shape”. Around 2010 is when we saw the introduction to the butt trend that we know today: big butts. The butt trend is a lot rounder and pronounced than in the past, and has come to prominence because of celebrity support.

It is said history repeats itself, so looking at these butt trends gives you a hint of what the next fad will be. According to Kobini, “Society often goes through phases of promoting an hourglass figure as a step toward body positivism, but it’s still a case of promoting one body type over another.” Ultimately, it’s up to you to feel confident and beautiful because the fads are always going to change, and it’s exhausting to try and keep up. You know what you like about yourself, and if your butt is something you want to accentuate, then go out there and do it! Moein Surgical Arts is here to help you with a Brazilian butt lift that will get you the body you desire.

LA BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT FAQ’S

1. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BUTT AUGMENTATION AND A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?

Butt augmentations use silicone implants to create a more desirable physique. In the past, doctors used gel and water-filled implants. Although these implants create a rounded and a younger-looking behind, they’re prone to rupture if there’s too much pressure on the buttocks (i.e. trauma from a fall). This leads to a disproportionate-looking back end, or worse, an infection. These implants are now replaced by solid silicone implants, which are far more long-lasting.

Alternatively, Brazilian butt lifts do not involve the use of any implants. When undergoing your Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Moein will harvest natural fat through liposuction of your abdomen or thighs and inject it into buttocks. A Brazilian butt lift does not leave a huge scar as butt augmentation does (apart from where the liposuction took place). Additionally, downtime is also relatively shorter.

2. HOW MUCH FAT IS NEEDED FOR A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT TO BE SUCCESSFUL?

This depends on your desired results, but your doctor may recommend the amount of fat based on your current figure and overall health.

3. HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD FOR A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?

Since a Brazilian butt lift does not involve major surgery, you can go back to work in 3-5 days. But it can take between four and six weeks before you can fully return to normal activities. For the first month and a half after the procedure, you must wear a compression garment. Expect some swelling and bruising in the first couple of weeks. Your doctor will also prescribe you some medications for the pain.

4. ARE THERE ANY RISKS INVOLVED?

No surgical procedure is without any risk. When it comes to a Brazilian butt lift, the risks are few and preventable, especially with a competent surgeon. Other than the common side effects like bruising, pain and loss of fat (this happens when post-op procedures are not followed), there is little else for you to worry about.

5. CAN I SIT ON MY BUTTOCKS AFTER SURGERY?

Sitting on your derriere after a butt lift can be uncomfortable during the first couple of weeks. You can sit on your buttocks but with the help of a special cushion. During your recovery period, you will be asked to wear a compression garment to eliminate some of the discomforts and to maintain the new shape of your buttocks.

6. WHAT HAPPENS IF I GAIN OR LOSE SOME WEIGHT?

Brazilian butt lifts work by injecting fats into the buttocks. If you’ve experienced severe weight loss or weight gain, it’s likely that this will alter the shape of your rear end. This is why you should follow post-operative care instructions from your doctor.

7. WHEN CAN I EXERCISE AFTER MY BUTT LIFT?

Avoid any strenuous exercise until you have recovered well at 4-6 weeks after surgery. This will give the new fat cells some time to settle. But you can do some light aerobic exercises within a few weeks. Walking is highly recommended.

8. I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH BODY FAT. CAN I STILL GET A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?

The ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is someone with sufficient body fat in other parts of the body. Your doctor may advise you to gain some weight first before going through surgery. Additionally, you need to be at 18 years old before you can be considered a candidate for a BBL.

9. HOW LONG WILL MY BUTT LIFT LAST?

A BBL can last up to 20 years, but the result differs from one person to another. Factors like weight gain/loss, aging and health affect the appearance of buttocks years after a butt lift was performed.

10. HOW MUCH DOES A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT COST?

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift depends on the fat that needs to be grafted for a rounded and perkier behind. It is quite an expensive procedure to make, but keep in mind that the cost already includes other procedures and fees for liposuction, anesthesia, and post-operative care.

Dr. Moein conducts consultations with patients who want to receive a Brazilian butt lift. During consultations, patients can discuss with Dr. Moein their desired results in order for him to determine the number of fats to be grafted.

Brazilian Butt Lift – Butt Lift

There are a lot of people who wish they had a larger, more defined behind. Many workouts make big promises of a curvier figure. However, none of those come close to providing the results of a Brazilian butt lift.

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that has recently become the talk of the town. With this technique, fat is harvested from one area of your body and then used to add shape and size to the buttocks via grafting techniques. The fat grafting achieves natural augmentation in the buttocks and results in effective sculpting of areas of the body where there is excess fat.
