In a world saturated by all things Kardashian, it shouldn't surprise anyone that a new report has surfaced claiming 17 year old Kylie Jenner has undergone what amounts to a complete facial reconstruction.
Why do we care enough to publish on this subject? Because millions of young women - many of whom are tweens, look up to the youngest member of this showbiz clan as a role-model. We happen to think that when you are a role-model you have a moral responsibility to positively impact those people (especially young people) that look up to you. Having multiple elective cosmetic procedures at 17 is setting an incredibly bad precedent. For the record, we are not against cosmetic surgery. People can choose to modify their bodies - its a personal decision - but one we feel that should be reserved for adults.
The twist in all of this of course will be the denials from the Kardashian clan. Every excuse and dodge will be offered - but I'm not sure that these drastic changes can be explained away with the tried and true "make-up contouring" BS that is the go-to explanation. If you are going to physically alter your appearance and you are a role-model at least own up to it so that the legions of impressionable fans and followers that hang on your every tweet and Instagram picture have a more realistic appreciation for what authentic changes are possible - without going under the knife. Rant over.
From the press:
The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner, has reportedly undergone six or more plastic surgeries over the past two years, incuding a chin implant and nose job, according to a new report. Do you believe she’s really gone under the knife?
Kylie Jenner has a new face and she reportedly loves it. After being severely bullied for years, Kylie, who is only 17, begged her mother, Kris Jenner, to let her get plastic surgery and she finally let her do it, claims a new report.
Kylie Jenner, 17: Six Or More Plastic Surgeries Revealed — Report
Kylie was tired of everyone always talking about how beautiful her sisters were, so she took matters into her own hands.
Although Kylie has publicly denied getting any surgery but Ok! Magazine claims that the reality star, who just purchased a $2.7 million dollar home, got a breast augmentation, an eyebrow lift, upper eyelid surgery, a chin implant, jaw reshaping and a nose job.
“Kylie never saw surgery as being taboo, because her sister have all done it,” an insider says. “She sees it as a means to an end.”
This all stems from having her “awkward” years out there for the entire world to see on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
“Going through her awkward phase [on TV], she was severely bullied and subjected to harsh public scrutiny,” adds the source. “All she ever heard was people talking about how much prettier Kim, Kendall and even Kris were.”
