Plastic Surgeon Speculates What Surgeries Kylie Jenner Has Had to Look the Way She Does
She’s one of Instagram‘s most-followed people and the creator of a top makeup brand. Plus, she’s been on camera since the young age of 10. It’s no secret Kylie Jenner has built a career on her image. But even she has admitted she feels pressure to keep up with her crafted social presence.
Kylie has arguably the plumpest lips in Hollywood. Fans started the #kyliejennerlipchallenge involving suction and skin on social media. (Needless to say, it didn’t end well.) While she originally claimed her large pout was the result of expertly applied lip liner, she came clean on an episode of Life With Kylie.
“I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips. I have really small lips,” she said, according to People. “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. … I would overline 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.”
Next: She admitted to the lips, but surgeons speculate she hid these surgeries, as well.
2. Hips and butt
Speculation about Kylie’s plastic surgery reached its peak during her teenage years — a time when women’s bodies are subject to change the most. Still, Kylie has admitted to crafting her curves with “breast plumping” techniques and butt-enhancing lotions.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Giannitrapani told Cosmopolitan the procedures he believes could have produced Kylie’s newfound hips and butt. “I would also speculate that in recent months, Kylie has undergone fat transfer to her hips and buttocks to further enhance her hourglass curves.”
Next: She claimed this was the work of a push-up bra.
Kylie and her sisters use their personal apps to divulge beauty advice, insider secrets, and exclusive news to fans. In 2015, Kylie relayed the “secret” to her new and evidently larger breasts: a Victoria’s Secret bra.
“Everyone thinks I’ve gotten a breast augmentation recently and I haven’t. I just use the “Bombshell” by Victoria’s Secret — it’s life-changing,” she shared, according to Cosmopolitan.
Giannitrapani said Kylie’s growth had “the characteristics of a breast enlargement in the early stages of healing,” when looking at two side-by-side photos. “If she intended on keeping the procedure a secret, the surgeon will have gone for an implant size to suit her frame and for the result to look as natural as possible.”

4. Jawline and cheekbones
While the rest of Kylie’s body filled out, her face — specifically her jawline and cheekbones — began to thin. Fans and surgeons alike speculated she’d gone under the knife to achieve her chiseled jaw and high cheekbones only months after appearing fresh-faced on camera.
So Kylie again cleared the air on her app. “No, I didn’t [get surgery],” she said, according to Popsugar. “You think Kris Jenner would really, at 16 years old, let me get cheek and jaw reconstructive surgery? Nah.”

5. Kylie has always denied getting work done
A Twitter user called Kylie “more plastic than Barbie,” to which she swiftly clapped back. “Well, I haven’t done anything except my lips but nobody seems to believe that, so I don’t really care,” Kylie wrote, according to Cosmopolitan.
When she turned 18, she used puberty as her defense against anyone questioning her body. “My mom wasn’t even going to let me get my lips done, so there’s no way in hell she was going to let me get my boobs done, or my butt, or anything else,” Kylie said.
Next: She has thoughts about plastic surgery, even if she denies getting it.
6. What she says about plastic surgery
Kylie’s half-sister Kim Kardashian interviewed her for The Evening Standard. The two talked about motherhood, fame, and plastic surgery. When Kim asked Kylie about her thoughts on plastic surgery, Kylie said she wasn’t opposed to it.
“I feel like if it makes you feel better, and if that’s what you want to do, I’m not against it,” Kylie said. “Right now, I probably wouldn’t do anything, actually.”
7. Her ever-changing hair color
There isn’t a hair color Kylie has met that she didn’t like. The celebrity has gone cotton candy pink, white-blond, highlighter yellow, bright red, and deep purple — and that was just in 2017.
“I first dyed my hair when I was 16,” Kylie said on her app, according to Us Weekly. “I dyed it blue and I never even asked my mom. After that, I’ve just had this addiction to changing my hair. It makes me feel like a new person. I love feeling different and I love leaving the house knowing that nobody has ever seen me this way.”
