Makeup mogul Kylie Jenner has been known to enhance her look from time to time. How much plastic surgery has the Keeping Up With the Kardashians starlet had? The self-made billionaire started getting procedures done when she was only 17 years old. Her first cosmetic procedure was lip fillers.
As time passed, the public noticed that Kylie’s body began to change as well. We could chalk it up to puberty, but some would beg to differ. As Jenner’s nose got slimmer, her buttocks became larger and her bust grew significantly, people began to wonder exactly what procedures the reality TV star had gotten done.
Kylie has claimed that she hasn’t had that many cosmetic procedures done, but after taking a look at Kylie’s photos experts can concur that that’s not the truth. Let’s take a look at how Jenner has altered her body over the years.
As we all know, Kylie Jenner is known for her plump lips, even popularizing the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge in 2015, and bringing lips fillers into mainstream culture.
For a while, the Kylie Cosmetics creator tried to argue that her plump lips were a result of her overdrawing her lips with lip liner. In the above selfie, shared by Jenner in January 2014, it’s hard to argue that Jenner’s lips are not more notably voluptuous these days. So much so that lip enhancements are the reasonable answer.
After a prolonged period of denial, Kylie finally came clean about her lip injections in an episode of Life of Kylie. Jenner stated:
“I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips. I have really small lips. And it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.’ I took that really hard. When a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty.”
“I would over-line my lips with the lip liner to create the illusion of bigger lips and then, finally, I was like, this lip liner isn’t doing it and ended up getting my lips done.”
When Kylie Jenner was young, her nose appeared thicker in the middle. This can be seen in the above photo, posted in August 2013. Today Jenner’s nose is significantly thinner, naturally leading people to believe that a nose job is to thank for its new appearance. The makeup mogul has never publically admitted to a nose job, but it’s hard for fans to ignore the differences they carefully spot in her photos.
The above photo was shared by Jenner in August 2014. A year later, in 2015, Kylie’s breasts were suddenly noticeably larger. This caused plenty of speculation as to whether she got a breast enhancement or if it was just a sign of growing up.
At the time of the boob job, the star would have been 17 years old. With that fact in mind, many were bewildered as to how Jenner could have changed that much due to puberty in less than a year. Despite this, Kylie denied having any work done to her breasts.
In 2015 the star declined the rumors stating, “No, people – I haven’t gotten breast implants! Everyone is obsessed with that.” She claimed that the size of her breasts was a result of weight gain. “Truth is, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gained 15 pounds and my body has changed. I’ve definitely filled out,” she added. Jenner also claimed the size of her bust was a result of using a push-up bra from Victoria’s Secret.
Kylie Jenner’s top is not the only thing that has become more curvaceous over the years. Her bottom has also followed suit. Jenner has repeatedly claimed that her changing body is due to puberty. It’s undeniable that Jenner’s butt has gotten bigger while her waist has only gotten smaller.
Kylie has admitted to using waist trainers. In addition to this, Kylie has admitted to using Spanx to keep her skin tight while wearing form-fitting clothes.
Experts state that Kylie’s changing figure could partially be due to puberty, but it’s likely that several plastic surgeons were involved in the process. Some specialists in the field believe that she transferred fat from certain places of her body to other places, helping her create an hourglass figure.
Apart from surgery, Jenner is known to enhance her looks with fun iconic colorful wigs, hair dye, and her makeup expertise.
