History Of Plastic Surgery

Despite changing fashions, styles and beauty standards, civilisations and individuals have always been invested in their appearance. In fact, plastic surgery dates back to as early as 800 B.C in Ancient India but surgical or ‘cosmetic’ procedures have been documented in these early years all over the world.

The primitive plastic surgery procedures we have the most information about were those in ancient India, where special healers or doctors would reconstruct the face to suit the patient’s desired look using rudimentary skin grafts. Eastern cultures were always more advanced in evolving or discovering medicines, and this includes cosmetic procedures. Progression was slow but steady and soon plastic surgery was introduced to western civilisations and adopted throughout Europe. At this time, cosmetic surgery entered its first major revolution as it became adapted and refined for different procedures, different features, areas of the body and most notably – different trends that varied from culture to culture.

Suns Out Buns Out – The Big Bum Trend

 

The big butt trend is here to stay – bum lifts and Brazilian butt lifts are now one of the most asked-for plastic surgeries worldwide – with the number of bum lifts completed per year well on its way to overtaking the number of breast augmentations completed per year! Having risen in popularity, the big bum is now seen as a must-have by many women. It was made famous by Hollywood celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Iggy Azalea, Amber Rose, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B (to name but a few!), as well as Instagram fitness stars, health gurus and many more different people besides. These celebrities and social media stars occupy a unique place in popular culture and are easily able to influence millions of people, often with simple actions like uploading a post on social media (such as the belfie – a bum selfie) or the release of a new music video (with J.Lo’s Booty and Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda being perfect examples of this).
