Kylie Jenner Claims It's A "Misconception" That She Had "So Much Surgery" Done On Her Face

The Kardashian-Jenner clan has always been known for altering their bodies and faces in some way, but Kylie Jenner wants people to know that she hasn't had much surgery done on her face.

Out of the six Kardashian-Jenner siblings, Kylie Jenner is the youngest of them all and the second richest. Her net worth is suspected to be around $600 million, compared to Kim Kardashian's $1.4 billion. She is the head of the Kylie Cosmetics empire, which started with some simple lip glosses and has now expanded into everything from eye shadow palettes to mascara to skincare products for babies. Kylie is also a mother to two young children—Stormi, 5, and Aire, 1. Just like her other siblings, she is well accustomed to being in the spotlight and even at the heart of various controversies, and one thing that Kylie became famous for early on was getting lip fillers at a young age. Reportedly, she was only 15 years old when she opted in for lip fillers for the first time. In an interview with Homme Girls, she opened up about why she decided to get fillers at such a young age.

Kylie Jenner Claims It's a "Misconception" That She Had "So Much Surgery" Done on Her Face

There are numerous Hollywood celebrities who have had various plastic surgeries and procedures to make their faces look virtually perfect. The only thing is, very few of them are willing to admit that they've gotten any work done. Stars like Bella Hadid and Khloe Kardashian have said publicly that they haven't really had much work done at all (just a nose job), but it's pretty clear from their before-and-after photos that they've had a variety of procedures performed to give them the perfectly sculpted face. Procedures like buccal fat removal are becoming more popular than ever, leaving many celebrities and influencers with hollowed-out cheeks and ultra-high cheekbones.

Not long after Kylie got her lips done, she launched Kylie Cosmetics and started selling lip kits, complete with lip liner and gloss or matte lipstick. She has spoken previously about why she got her lip fillers, but in her Homme Girls interview, she was more candid about the insecurity she felt. "I love full lips and wanted full lips," she said. Looking at Kylie's photos from her teenage years, it was clear that she had thin lips, but she was still beautiful. Regardless, Kylie knew she wanted to change her lips.

"I think a big misconception about me is that I’ve had so much surgery on my face and that I was some insecure person, and I really wasn’t!" she said. "Growing up I was always the most confident person in the room. I was the girl performing for everyone. I had my one lip insecurity thing, so I got lip filler, and it was the best thing I’ve ever done. I don’t regret it. But I always thought I was cute."

She also spoke about her first experience with makeup and what it felt like to experiment with her mom's Chanel eye shadow collections. Lately, though, she thinks "less is more" and wants to strip down her look a little. "I’m just embracing my natural beauty, my freckles, and my bushy brows," she said.

When prompted about what beauty advice she would give her daughter Stormi, she replied, "That she’s perfect the way that she is. Be confident, always be confident in yourself." Oddly enough, if she had taken her own advice when she was 15 years old, she wouldn't have artificially altered her lips.

Kylie adds that her daily routine is pretty simple: "Really all I do all day is apply blush, sauna, workout and work."

Many fans are finding it difficult to believe that Kylie hasn't had a lot of surgery done to her face. They point to how different her jaw and chin look, and perhaps even the fox eye trend that many stars like Ariana Grande are suspected to have had done. Regardless of how much surgery Kylie (and all her sisters) have had done, it can be frustrating for women to keep being told that that they're just natural beauties, which only sets unrealistic beauty standards and sends young girls the wrong message about what it means to be natural.
