    Silicone Parts Are Made For Toys

    Lizz Robbins explores a new generation of plastic surgery.

    DISCLAIMER: Feel free to point out the many names I use for the backside, there’s a quiz. Now let’s begin…

     

    “I’m not talking ’bout Playboy, but silicone parts are made for toys.”—Sir Mix-A-Lot “Baby Got Back,” 1992

     

      Yet, they are becoming really popular with humans. Nowadays, seeing someone with breast augmentation is like seeing a bird fly. Recently, another augmentation method has moved a little bit lower, in particular the gluteus maximums…or better known as the booty. Gluteal Augmentation or Gluteoplasty is on the rise among women who feel like they need junk in the trunk in order to feel attractive. Back in my day (wow, I’m becoming my mother), having a large derrière was something that was frowned upon like having big lips.

     

      Personally, I’ve had a donkey since junior high school, maybe more like a mini donk, and I would try my best to cover it with large clothes. That was until Sir Mix-A lot had a hit song focused totally on round things. All women with back shed their baggy clothing to show their assets off. Of course, as time went on and the Latin Invasion exploded on the states you had the likes of Jennifer Lopez who were getting more attention for their culo than anything else. All of sudden, it was cool to have more than an average size butt. I feel the J-Lo’s and Shakira’s of the world didn’t make it cool, they just worked with what was given to them. But for those who wanted a rump shaker like theirs were beyond envious. It’s not like you could run and get one off the shelf from your local Loews hardware store (“let’s build something together, indeed). But where there’s demand, supply is created. But at what cost?

     

      Now, don’t take this as me knocking the women who do juice their fanny, but why subject yourself to possible infections, scars and abscess for something that was made to sit on? And let’s not forget about this disaster that happened in March. Sure, as a 20-30 something year old it may get you a few things, a few music videos and a spread in ____________ Magazine, perhaps (please enter name in the blank space, thanks). But then what happens when you hit 40 and that thang-thang is dropping faster than the DOW? There are many other things women can do to enhance their badonkadonk without going to that extreme. Victoria’s Secret and Frederick’s of Hollywood make inserts that will help you get those temporary curves, for starters. Everyone can’t get butt injections and become a “star” because I believe that one day having real talent will come back in style. One day.

     

      If the reason you want implants or injections is to find “Mr. Right,” be ready to deal with “Mr. Wrong” if he’s only concerned about what you sit on instead of that fist-sized thing that beats inside your chest. People may look at my pictures and say hey you’ve got dumps like a truck, so it’s not an option [Ed Note: We'd like to enter exhibit A, exhibit B, exhibit C and exhibit D as evidence, your honor]. This is true, but at the same time why add something to your body that can put you at risk, when there are alternatives?  Embrace what you have, ladies, and be proud of it. There are plenty of people who will appreciate you for you. It may sound like an old cliché but those people are easy to recognize. If someone asks you if it’s “natural,” you can look them in the eye and say, “naturally mine.” Let Barbie keep her own silicone parts.

    Great read and I think we all need to stop letting the industry dictate what is beautiful and what is not. Lil Kim classic example, I thought she was Beautiful back in the day flat chested and all if the breast made her feel better cool, but then it becomes her Culo is not phat enough or her lips aren’t thick enough and she turned herself into a monster. SAD

    My feeling is it’s sad that some women’s ass are worth more than their face and/or the rest of their being. I love the female anatomy but it seems that “we” focus more on the butt than any other group.

    Robert Littal says:
    Back in the day it was a pretty face that attracted men to women. Now they can look like Barbaro and have horrible personality as long as they have booty and dudes will slurp. So sad

    there should be more talk about fat grafting of the butt – where they put your own fat in your backside to make it appear more natural. its not just booty pads, silicone, & hydrogel. i’m pretty sure there are girls enhancing with fat grafting and then telling people it’s natural. OH and it gets better! some surgeons also do fat grafting of the breasts. so you can have big butt AND big boobs, all while it looks completely natural. so the verdict? in about 10 years, everyone (correction, every girl with low self-esteem) will be enhanced somehow and we will never be able to tell. women will be like stepford wives – too perfect to be true.

    The disaster in March was silicone injections probably done by some back ally pharmacists…that is seriously frowned upon by alot of plastic surgeons. I seriously want the fat grafting…and I am doing as much research as possible to insure my safety as well as me being able to not go broke!

    So much pressure is the excuse, but people seek attention that wasn’t GOD givin. But these procedures are so avaible now a days that everyone is trying it. We care and then again we dont but we will notice if you go from not being curvey to more curves than a Video Vixen. I can tell folks what to do but be happy with yourself first, then make your decision. Lizz the model is 100% GOD givin, Keep on Pushin Sis. Great topic

    I personally do no mind if a woman gets a surgery if it will make their self esteem better. Who am I to tell a woman what to do with her body. Besides if done the right way a woman can look just amazing with the breast job, tummy tuck and asshots. I will take me a stepford wife please. It was ok when the white girls where doing it. Why not minority women. I think latinas and blacks look way better anyways.

    Article was a gd and interstin’ read, but wen’ u’ve got da PERFECT package (as u seem 2 have) it’s easy 2 make points like this. Either way, true dat plastic surgery should only be an option for those in DESPERATE need of it, and not for people them tryn’a improve their apperance. Still, I HATE a FAKE BOOTY, don’t tink there’s a need for FAKE breats, and if u ain’t got BIG JUICY LIPS then work wid somethin’ else. Keep da articles cumin’ Ms, and some KILLA pics deh 2 ;-) Hope it’s ALL REAL

    I agree 100 percent, Lizz! Beauty comes from within. Granted, you happen to be gorgeous on the outside, but you communicate beauty through your eyes as well. There are so many beautiful women on this earth who worry too much about their exteriors and their posteriors.

    everyone want’s a fake but like buffie — but women need to just keep it real like myeko she 100% real !

    I love a gorgeous woman inside and out… Natural beauty is sometimes jaw-dropping and is simply natural. Looking like a clown, with fake breast, fake booty…Just says that they are fake and not real or sure about their beauty.

    The person who wrote this pathetic column must be of hispanic or “Latin” extraction, for everyone knows that only black women have butts, and hispanic women butts on average are flatter than most white women. Jennifer Lopez butt is big, but it looks horrible. And for black men from the south of these United States, the “booty” has always been a prized aspect of a woman’s form. You whitewashed negros who long to be anything but black sit and opine anything black until crackers or spicks “make it look good” Ah thank you massa!!! Black women are the most beautiful things on this Earth and have no reason whatsoever to be ashamed of what The Holy Lord Above has ****chosen to give only to them**** and I do wish black race traders would stop fawning over this fake wanna be black, tan and white trash.

    Sooooooo true! I say this everyday to these girls out here! Work with what you got! Bring attention to your best features and play them up. Fake plastic body = fake plastic person.

    Megan says:
    It’s really easy for a woman with a voluptuous figure to say “Don’t get implants”. You’ve gone through your whole life with that figure, so you have no idea what it’s like to be so skinny and curve-less that people treat you like you’re invisible. Walk a mile in a scrawny woman’s shoes, THEN you can be against plastic surgery. Until then, you don’t have a proper insight into what that feels like.

    Ummm latina women? Black women are the ones known for big butts and lips. Jlo is probably the only latina that has a big butt and shakira? Looool leave it out

    09.29.12 at 4:22 pm

    Morgan says:
    I have to tell you that I think this is a horrible article. You bring attention to the fact that women are getting these implants in their butts but you fail to really address the root of this. You say that women get these for men and in the end to ‘embrace what they have.’ As you mentioned you are a woman who has a ‘donk’ and no longer felt the need to wear baggy clothes after you heard that Sir-Mix-Alot song. But as a black woman who really no curves to speak of it is typical in the black culture, in black music to embrace a fuller figure. And as a black women who sees the types of women shown to me in the media who have these fuller bodies that are celebrated what are I seeing. You tell me to embrace what I have yet big butts and fuller figures are what people like. I think your article has a good premise yet it fails to address the root of the problem and even discuss it which are the unrealistic standards of beauty and what is sexy. You tell women who get these implants in their but to love themselves but what are they really being told about their bodies/
