Kylie Jenner, the youngest sister of Kim Kardashian, got lip injections and may have had other cosmetic enhancements, according to six plastic surgeons.
Kylie, 18, has been the target of surgery rumors for months, after posting a series of selfies on Instagram that had fans questioning her changing looks.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer said Kylie’s dramatically fuller lips are due to lip injections, and not lipstick. “Yes. Emphatically,” Dr. Salzhauer told Hollywood Life. “That is not just lipstick. Her lips look three times as wide as they did in the ‘before’ pictures.”
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Yoel Shahar agrees Jenner likely got lip injections, and suggested she may have also gotten Botox and/or other plastic surgeries, including a possible brow lift.
“Kylie has significantly higher eyebrow that can be created by surgery or brow lift,” said Dr. Yoel. “Botox can elevate eyebrows to much lesser degree, like two to three millimeters.”
While a teenager (especially a celebrity) getting plastic surgery in Los Angeles is hardly shocking, the rumors about Kylie raised eyebrows because she’s naturally beautiful and doesn’t need surgery.
Some reports claim Kylie wants plastic surgery to look more like her beautiful older sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, whose modeling career has skyrocketed recently.
That, coupled with her father Bruce Jenner’s numerous plastic surgery obsession, could have troubling implications down the line for her self-esteem, said experts.
Bruce, who won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, has admitted getting a nose job and partial face lift in 1984, and a second corrective face lift in 2009. Sources said Jenner is obsessed with looking young and thinks plastic surgery is the answer.
Similarly, Bruce’s wife (and Kylie’s mom), Kris Jenner, has reportedly spent over $1 million on plastic surgery and is also obsessed with looking young, her sister Karen Houghton told In Touch. Kris has spoken openly about her plastic surgeries, and even chronicled her 2011 facelift on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Jenner, 59, has admitted getting two breast augmentations, Botox and liposuction. “Everyone needs a fresh set [of breast implants] every 20 years,” she said. Kris has also reportedly had a nose job or two. While celebrities getting plastic surgery is nothing new, Jenner’s sister said Kris turns to surgery to cope with her depression and unhappiness.
