Kylie Jenner is over her plump lips and is all for the natural look now. The reality TV star was in attendance at The Handmaid’s Tale finale event in L.A. last night, and she looked much more youthful and cute. This public appearance followed her reveal that she has decided to remove her famous lip fillers.
As fans of KUWK know all too well, Kylie Jenner has become synonymous with the full pout through the years.
The feature became so much her signature that she even came out with her Kylie Lip Kit back in 2015, which was also when she finally admitted she was getting injections to make her lips bigger.
Not too long ago, Kylie got a comment to a new pic that read: ‘she looks like the old Kylie here idk why.’
Considering that she’s built an empire around her cosmetically enhanced lips, her reply made many jaws drop.
‘I got rid of all my filler,’ the younger Jenner sister wrote along with a couple of blushing emojis and a smiling one.
Looking at the new snaps, Kylie’s lips do look a lot more natural and definitely different from the ones we were used to but are they really completely gone? It doesn’t seem so.
ET tried to answer this question by talking to New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer about the removal process.
When asked about whether or not the lips go back to their natural shape after removing the filler and if Kylie may still have some left, the medical specialist explained:
‘If someone stops getting filler, the body will slowing metabolize it into individual hyaluronic acid molecules which are absorbed by the body. We all naturally have hyaluronic acid in our skin. Hyaluronic acid filler is made in the laboratory by making bonds between the individual molecules. This forms the hyaluronic acid gel which is injected to add volume and definition.’
‘When we ‘melt’ filler, we inject an enzyme which breaks these bonds and allows the body to absorb the filler. As the filler is naturally metabolized or ‘melted’ with the enzyme, the skin goes back to how it was prior to the injections. In most cases, only one treatment of the enzyme is required, but some patients may need more than one treatment.’
‘Most likely, Kylie still has some filler in her lips, but whether it is clinically apparent is unclear.’
So it’s official, we are yet to see Kylie’s final form!
