Kim Kardashian is saying goodbye to her old rump. An insider close to the reality star revealed that she just had her butt implants taken out. A few top plastic surgeons agree that Kardashian’s derriere has undergone a change, but that’s not the only thing she’s had done this year.
Kardashian is famous for her oversized booty. Back in 2011, she had doctors x-ray her rear end on Keeping Up With the Kardashians to prove that she is all natural.
Shortly after the x-ray, however, Kardashian’s rump looked suspiciously larger than ever. Most assumed that Kardashian had gotten implants, and it now looks like she’s gone the opposite direction.
“Kim’s buttock definitely looks smaller than it used to, so either she had padded underwear on for most of 2017, or she had a buttock augmentation that has diminished,” Dr. Norman Rowe, who has no connection to Kardashian, explained.
Dr. Rowe told Radar Online that Kardashian likely received filler-based implants. Over time, this type of augmentation reduces as it absorbs into the body, which results in a smaller butt.
It is also possible that Kardashian’s butt reduction is because of weight loss. Certain types of augmentation can diminish with weight loss, including fat transfers.
But without knowing what kind of implants Kardashian received, it is difficult to determine what happened. If she did get a fat transfer, for instance, she may have gotten liposuction before the augmentation fully absorbed.
Dr. Anthony Youn, who is known as America’s Holistic Plastic Surgeon, agreed with Dr. Rowe’s assessment. Youn added that liposuction can reduce the size of the butt in just a few weeks.
Kardashian has not commented on the rumors surrounding her butt reduction. The KUWTK star is currently dealing with some backlash after claiming she took ecstasy while filming her infamous sex tape with Ray J.
In response to the claims, an inside source close to Ray J says that Kim Kardashian was not on drugs when she made the tape. She did, however, reportedly smoke weed right before the filming the sex scene.
