Kylie Jenner is undoubtedly one of the most influential figures in the fashion and makeup industry, largely thanks to her huge fan following on Instagram. In many ways, she could be considered the first ‘influencer’ who expertly combined her glamorous appearance and her insane Instagram reach to skyrocket her net worth.

Many skeptics, however, have frequently raised question marks, crediting multiple surgeries for the beauty mogul’s near-perfect Instagram pictures. They now think the same procedures are coming back to bite Jenner.

Doctor Explains What Really Happened to Kylie Jenner’s Face

Kylie Jenner made the headlines with her new look at Paris Fashion Week. Over the years, the Kardashian family has always made their presence known at such events with their bold fashion statements.

The 26-year-old perhaps tried to do the same while attending the Jean Paul Gaultier show on Wednesday as she showcased her more natural appearance by wearing much less makeup than usual. However, pictures from the event left many pointing out that Jenner looked old for her age.

As expected, this led to discussions about plastic surgery and its ill effects, as the socialite has been accused of undergoing multiple procedures to enhance her look. British aesthetics wizard and social media personality, Dr. Jonny Betteridge has now entered the fray to give his opinion.


He pointed toward her swollen mounds and underlined they appear in the lower eyelid and cheek area and commonly occur with age, before adding (via Instagram):

“However, in Kylie’s case, there’s likely another contributing factor, which is filler in the cheeks and or under the eye area. Filler is hydrophilic, so if too much is used in one specific area, it can lead to intermittent edema, which is a buildup of fluid.”

The plastic surgery discourse has regularly revolved around Jenner since she got her first lip injections in 2015.

What Kylie Jenner Said About Her Decision to Undergo Plastic Surgery

One of the big reasons behind Jenner’s Instagram popularity in the early days was her famous pout – a result of injecting dermal fillers into the lips. However, in 2018, she admitted she had stopped getting lip fillers.

Over the years, the reality TV star has also gained a different outlook on going under the knife. In 2023, she expressed regrets over her past decisions during an episode of The Kardashians, stating (via W Magazine):

“I got my breasts done before Stormi, not thinking I would have a child when I was 20. Like, they were still healing. I had beautiful breasts. Just gorgeous. Perfect size, perfect everything. And I just wish, obviously, I never got them done to begin with.”

Jenner also added that she’d be heartbroken if her daughter, Stormi Webster, wanted to do something similar as a teenager.
