As rumors of Kendall Jenner’s plastic surgery procedures continue to swirl, fans have taken to comparing her current photos to those from her earlier career days. In recent weeks, the 27-year-old model has been subject to speculation that she got lip fillers that made her pout more “plumper-looking” and rhinoplasty to enhance her appearance.
Now, fans are taking to Instagram to weigh in on the alleged changes in Jenner’s look, with some insisting that she has done “more to her face” than her 25-year-old sister, Kylie.
The debate among fans as to whether Jenner has or has not underwent plastic surgery can be found in the comment section of a recent post under the popular Instagram account @plasticne (where fans often compare photos of celebrities that might have gone under the knife).
Kendall Jenner Sparks Plastic Surgery Rumors: Fans Speculate Lip Fillers
On May 30th, the account creator uploaded a two-photo, side-by-side comparison of Jenner from the early 2010s and another more recent photo. Many commenters began zeroing in on Jenner’s lips and how they’ve “changed over the years,” as one wrote.
“Wow, Ms. Naturell changed a lot,” another added regarding the 818 Tequila mogul who has adamantly denied plastic surgery rumors for years. Someone else replied: “honestly I’m usually oblivious to this but Kendall has had a lot of procedures done to her face.”
They added: “She looks nothing like she did. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, however as a model, she should be open about it not being completely natural beauty that is impossible to attain.”
One other chimed in: “I think she did more to her face than Kylie,” as another fan disagreed: “Kendall has had a nose job and subtle lip filler only.”
A Plastic Surgeon on TikTok Weighs In
Recently, a plastic surgeon took to TikTok to offer his professional opinion on what it “seems like she has gotten done.” In a video post for his 978.3K followers, expert Dr. Charles S. Lee, MD, FACS compared photos of Jenner from her teenage years and earlier career days to more recent and close-up shots.
After being asked to by a follower, Lee detailed the procedures he believed Jenner had undergone. “Here I can see she’s had a brow lift, possibly part of a fox eye lift including the lower lid corners,” Lee said.
He added: “What I also see is [Jenner’s] upper eyelid has a little more platform show, so that could be a byproduct of the brow lift alone or additional eyelid surgery.”
Lee also noted that he thought Jenner’s “old nose” was more wide. In recent years, Lee said that Jenner sported a nose with “a little bit of roundness” of the tip area, which could explain why some fans thought it looked different as of late. “She’s had a rhinoplasty,” he guessed.
“She’s got beautiful teeth,” he said while concluding his video, adding: “I think she probably had some lip fillers and probably some Botox as well but regardless I definitely agree she’s the most natural-looking Kardashian.” Lee captioned the TikTok: “Disclaimer: I am not her surgeon this is just my opinion.”
What Has Kendall Jenner Said About Plastic Surgery?
Jenner addressed plastic surgery speculation in 2017 after she was spotted sporting a plumper pout on Instagram, which became a major topic of conversation.
She explained to fans: “All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, ‘OMG Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstruction—look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!’ I was like, this is CRAZY. I didn’t even address it at the time. Because if I address it, people are going to be like, ‘Oh, so she’s defending herself—she must be guilty.'”
The Kardashians star also pointed out that since she was a working supermodel, getting surgery to change her face wouldn’t really benefit her career. “As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed?” she argued. “It doesn’t even make sense. It’s crazy because sometimes I feel like people just want me to lose.”
Her younger sister Kylie also addressed the situation on social media. “You guys, Kendall let me over-line her lip today with lipliner and everyone thinks she got lip injections,” she told fans at the time. “I’m sorry, Kendall.” But, many fans still aren’t convinced that she “never” got plastic surgery.
