Kardashian / Jenner Plastic Surgery?

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Are all of the Kardashian / Jenner clan having plastic surgery?  It looks like it to me!  I recently commented on surprising photos for Radar Online, showing what appears to be a nose job (rhinoplasty) for Kim and lip injections for Kendall Jenner.  You can read my comments and see the photos on Radar Online HERE and HERE.

 

Did Kanye West Forbid Kim Kardashian From Having Plastic Surgery?

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Sources are reporting that Kanye West has forbidden Kim Kardashian from having any (more?) plastic surgery.  From Radar Online:

“Kim was certain that she wanted to have surgery after giving birth because she wanted a head start on losing her baby weight,” the source explains. But when West got wind of her plans, says the source, “He really flipped out.”

“He’s fine with her getting Botox and fillers, but anything that requires getting knocked out, like lipo, is a huge no no in his book,” the source says. “They’ll find a compromise. Kanye tries to let Kim do as she pleases, but this issue is really important to him, and she understands.”

Several years ago Kanye West’s mom died shortly after undergoing extensive plastic surgery.  After suffering this tragedy, it’s not surprising that Kanye would have issues with Kim having elective cosmetic surgery.  There is a BIG difference between Kim and Kanye’s mom, however.  Kim is much younger, healthier, and therefore a better candidate for getting work done.

 

Reports About Kim Kardashian Having Plastic Surgery Post-Baby?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

I wouldn’t put too much credence to these reports, but there are several websites that claim Kim Kardashian is planning or has recently undergone plastic surgery to change her post-baby body.  I typically recommend that all new moms wait at least 6 months after giving birth prior to undergoing plastic surgery like a tummy tuck or a breast lift.  With Kanye West’s mom dying after undergoing extensive plastic surgery several years ago, I would assume that Kanye would have some reservations about Kim going under the knife.  Time will tell, I guess!

Is Kim Kardashian Really Getting Botox While Pregnant? I Hope Not!

Friday, May 31st, 2013

In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting that a source claims that Kim Kardashian is getting Botox injections while pregnant!  A plastic surgeon is quoted in the article, supporting the claim.  Kardashian’s reps have denied the claim, calling it “absurd and not true.”

So what do I think?  Currently, there isn’t enough scientific data to confirm or deny safety of Botox in pregnancy.  Not surprising, since what mother-to-be in her right mind would enter a trial that exposed her developing fetus to one of the most powerful toxins in the world?  So IF Kim is using Botox while pregnant, then she seriously needs to get her head examined, and her plastic surgeon needs to be reprimanded!

I bet the lack of wrinkles that we see on Kim’s face is probably just due to good makeup and youthful skin.

My Analysis Of The Kardashians’ Plastic Surgeries On Gawker

Monday, September 19th, 2011

 

The famed website Gawker has published my comments of the various plastic surgeries of the Kardashian sisters. Has Kim had her breasts done? Has Khloe had her nose done? Find the (possible) answers here!

 

Kim Kardashian X-Rays Her Butt To Prove No Implants There!

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

This is great.  Kim Kardashian recently took the time and exposed herself to radiation in order to prove that she doesn’t have buttock implants.  Kim posted this photo on her sister Khloe’s website.  I’m no radiologist, but I don’t see any obvious implants there!

That doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had fat injected into her butt.  This wouldn’t show up on an x-ray.

I doubt she’s had anything done, though.  Some people just have an ample booty!

 

Kim Kardashian Denies Plastic Surgery Rumors

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

In the newest issue of Self, Kim Kardashian refutes rumors that she’s had her lips and buttocks done.  According to Celeb Dirty Laundry:

She said, “Rumors don’t bother me anymore. I’ve read that I’ve had my lips done. I’ve always had big lips. Look at my baby pictures. It’s ridiculous….You can’t worry about all the gossip.”

She went on to say that it’s not just her lips that have been rumored to have been done. She revealed, “They’ll show one picture of my today and one tomorrow, and say I’ve had my nose done in between. When? Didn’t you just see me yesterday? And how many times have I ‘had my butt done?’ People’s logic is so weird. I don’t know why they bother!”

I think I know why they bother.  It’s because of photos like this!  While I do not believe she’s had any work done to her famously large bottom (except Velashape anti-cellulite treatments), it’s pretty obvious to me that she’s had lip injections.  I’m not sure why she feels the need to deny it, since she’s had Botox treatments filmed on her show!

JWoww in Plastic Surgery War of Words With Kim Kardashian?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Apparently Jersey Shore’s JWoww doesn’t believe Kim Kardashian’s claim that the recent photos of her plumped up lips are due to the flu.  She recently tweeted,  “Funny how stars don’t man up to there plastic surgery… I did… Blaming it on colds etc.. Is just hysterical.. ”

This appears to be in response to a recent statement by Kim Kardashian:

“Trust me, I’ve tried Botox on the show,” she told Extra. “I’m the first one to talk about anything that I do. It really pisses me off that all of these plastic surgery rumors are always linked to me… I have the flu. I’m puffy and swollen and I have no makeup on. Why would I just do my bottom lip?” she questioned.

Whom do you believe?  Although I believe Kim’s had her lips done as evidenced by the photo in this blog’s prior post here, I must side with Kim against JWoww.  But only because I hate it when people mispell “their!”

Kim Kardashian’s Lips Are Plumped Up

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

What’s happened to Kim Kardashian’s lips?  She either had them plumped up by a plastic surgeon with some Juvederm or she was stung by a hive of bees.  Give it a couple days and they should settle down.  I’m surprised she went out in public looking like this.    She looks like Mick Jagger with long hair.

Kim Kardashian Gets Botox! And Has A Bad Reaction Afterwards!

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Kim Kardashian has allowed the E! cameras to follow her on an appointmentto get Botox. While the procedure appears to go well, she unfortunately suffers from a reaction while at a restaurant afterwards. What could this be from?

There are many possibilities. She could be allergic to the Botox although this is very rare. In fact, my office treats at least 50 Botox or Dysport patients each month, and I’ve never seen an actual allergic reaction. It could also be due to bruising and swelling causing her discomfort. Finally, and the most likely, maybe she’s just a drama queen.

Kim Kardashian Admits to Botox? Ho hum…

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Kim Kardashian has admitted to Botox and… nothing else. In a recent interview she has denied having her nose or breasts operated on. Her mom Kris also denied having a rhinoplasty, which, from what I remember about how she looks, seems untruthful to me.

Did any of you see Kim getting Velashape on her reality show to smooth her cellulite? Yes, she does have cellulite like 90% of women (and a few guys… check out Howard Stern’s Fartman photos).

Kim Kardashian Denies Rhinoplasty and Lip Reduction

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009


Kim Kardashian has strongly denied comments made in Star Magazine that she may have had a rhinoplasty and lip reduction:

She said on her blog: “Star Magazine is saying I had plastic surgery to make my nose and lips smaller! Why would someone want smaller lips?! LOL.”

“Your face always looks different when you lose weight, plus with the contouring on my nose it gives the illusion of a thinner nose.”"I actually think my nose looks smaller in the first pic than it does in the second. “It’s ridiculous… it’s all about the makeup and the angle from which the photo was taken! It’s no secret I contour my nose now to make the bump go away!”

I haven’t had a chance to see old photos of her, but to me her nose looks so refined that it is definitely possible she’s had some very nice work done to it. I strongly doubt she’s had her lips reduced though. This is a very uncommon surgery that can leave big scars. No way she’s had that done. I wonder who the plastic surgeon is that made the comments to Star Magazine? They certainly didn’t ask me! (Although I have been in Star a few times…)

Kim Kardashian: “I’ve Never Had Plastic Surgery.”

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Kim Kardashian has recently commented on her blog about the rumors that she’s had plastic surgery. According to E! online:

“I have not ever had plastic surgery,” she writes in her blog, accompanied by a voluptuous photo of herself in a bikini at age 14. I hope after seeing this you guys will never ask me a plastic surgery question again! I have had a size C since I was 11 years old!”

Also on the didn’t-do-it list: lip injections, a nose job or butt implants. But Kim hasn’t ruled out a little nip ‘n’ tuck: “One day I will definitely get a lift, but I am waiting until after I have kids. Until then I rely on a great supportive bra!”

Kim Kardashian – Breast Implants?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Does Kim Kardashian have breast implants? Take a look at some photos from MakeMeHeal.com. It does appear that her breasts have gotten unnaturally larger.

Does she have both breast and buttock implants?? Click here for my previous post on her possible buttock augmentation.

Kim Kardashian and Anti-Cellulite Treatments

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Kim Kardashian was filmed undergoing anti-cellulite treatments on her E! Television reality show. Here is a link to the video on the great Celebrity Smack! blog.

The three most common cellulite treatments are Velasmooth (which Kim had), Dermosonic, and Endermologie. All of them employ a deep tissue massage with various other treatments. I am partial to Dermosonic, which I have in my office, although I think they all work. Dermosonic combines external ultrasound treatments with a deep tissue massage using mechanical rollers.

Unfortunately, I don’t know of ANY permanent cellulite eradicator. Most treatments provide for the “temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite.” This means that the treatments must continue to a certain extent for the results to continue. But feel assured, even a glamorous young Hollywood star like Kim Kardashian has cellulite!

Kim Kardashian – Buttock implants?

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

 

A reader sent me this photo and inquired whether Kim Kardashian may have had work done to her buttocks. Tough call. While her bottom does appear to jut out unnaturally, this may, in fact, be hereditary. I have seen some patients with similar figures who have not had any work done.

Buttocks are usually augmented using either solid silicone implants or via fat grafting (the Brazilian Butt Lift). I have never performed a buttock augmentation using implants, but have made the bottom bigger with fat grafting. This seems to work pretty well. My favorite way to enhance the buttocks, however, is to liposuction the hips and thighs around it. This essentially makes everything around it smaller, and can indirectly make the bottom look bigger and rounder compared to the rest of the body. It doesn’t take as much time, has few complications, and allows the patient to sit down immediately. After surgery there is no need to say, “Bottoms up…”
