Keeping Up With The Kardashians Part I: Kim Kardashian Plastic Surgery Journey

Kim Kardashian became famous with the reality show Keeping up with Kardashians. Since then she has become a mum, a businesswoman and a social media influencer. Kim Kardashian Instagram reached 268 million followers in 2021! 

Kim Kardashian, a Fashion Icon and Pop Culture Phenomenon

“If I don’t like something that’s going on in my life, I change it. And I don’t sit and complain about it for a year.” Kim Kardashian

In 2015, Kim Kardashian was the highest-paid reality TV personality, her wealth was estimated to be more than USD 53 million. In the same year, Kardashian appeared on the 100 most influential people list of Time Magazine. And Vogue has rightly described her as a ‘pop culture phenomenon’.

Kim Kardashian received her fashion icon award and people’s choice awards in 2021.

There is no denying she is a pop culture phenomenon. People notice her and copy the things she does and says. Along with Time and Vogue, we would like to add one more Kim Kardashian title which we think suits her too: the Queen of Plastic Surgery.

Kim Kardashian caught the public eye for the first time as Paris Hilton’s friend and stylist. Despite the fact that she has always been recognized as a beautiful lady, all the photos from her early 20s to late 30s tell us more than what she actually claims. 

Our plastic surgery experts are sure that she had done liposuction, BBL, a nose job, and the list goes on… Just take a look at the little bump on her nose and her later photos, clearly showing a shorter, thinner nose, and the bump gone!

Before Kim Kardashian, no-one really envied women with such big bums! To be honest, women with big bums were ‘dying’ to have smaller bums, more proportional to their bodies. But Kim K changed the whole perception of big bums.

Because of her, having a big bum became a ‘trend’, and something to envy. As a result, an increasing number of women wanted to have bigger bums and started undergoing bum lift or BBL surgeries globally.

Whether She Admits It or Not Kim Kardashian is known as the Queen of Plastic Surgery

We are rightly calling her the Queen of Plastic Surgery because she is. She is setting the tone in beauty and plastic surgery and people definitely follow suit. And not only ordinary people like us, but also other celebrities. Kim, herself, is aware of this fact. In one of her interviews, she stated that she is like a ‘plastic surgery consultant’ in the celebrity world.

“People call me all the time, like really famous people, out of the blue and are like, ‘I know we don’t know each other, but I’ve heard you’re the expert and I’m looking to do x, y, and z. Who would you recommend?”

So let’s look at the plastic surgery procedures she has had, the ones that brought her the title: ‘queen of plastic surgery’.

Kim Kardashian Face Change Through Years

Kim Kardashian Before and After Plastic Surgery

Undoubtedly Kim K has a beautiful face and a unique look. But in her recent photos, we notice some incredible changes on her face. And these changes are not about time or maturity. Or not about contouring makeup as she sometimes claims. It certainly is about some aesthetic touches.

Look at her photo from 2006! She looks beautiful, but when compared to one of the recent photos, we see a different nose. In her recent photos, her nose appears to be shorter, thinner, and more proportional to her face. By the way, Kim has yet to acknowledge that she has had a rhinoplasty

She sometimes says that she is so good at makeup and contouring that her face looks very different when she wears makeup. But we are positive that this is not just about her contouring skills, she has had a nose job to enhance the shape and overall look of her face. What do you think?

Kim Kardashian Face Fillers

Kim Kardashian Face Form Change Through Time

Another change in her look over the years is her overall facial look. Compared to before, she now has more defined facial features. Her lips and V-shape face have been so popular that people named an aesthetic procedure package after her! Yeap, and it is called the Kim K Package!

Her face looks a bit thinner and more narrow. Fat was removed from her cheeks. In 2015, her chin got shorter. The dark eye hollows have disappeared from under the eyes with fillers.

What is the Kim K Package?

The Kim K Package or Kimmy K Package is the name given to a facial filler treatment. This filler treatment involves the jawline, chin, lips, and cheeks. The fillers are injected in these areas to achieve a more contoured face shape like Kim Kardashian’s. So come on Kim, you even have a filler treatment package named after you, it is time for you to get over the secrecy about your plastic surgery!

And, last but not least, let’s talk about Kim Kardashian’s famous curvy shape and bum!

Her famous body curves and bum remind us of this picture that sparked much debate back at the time, when she first posted it. Yes, the one where she pops a bottle of champagne while holding a champagne glass on her bum!

Although Kim pioneered the big bum trend and curvier look around the globe, surprisingly, she has never admitted that she had a bum surgery.

On the contrary, in 2011, Kim said: “I’ve said numerous times ‘I haven’t had plastic surgery, I haven’t had butt implants” and shared an X-Ray of her buttocks with the viewers. The X-Ray proved that there are no implants in her bum. But that doesn’t mean she did not get a Brazilian Butt Lift operation!

Kim Kardashian Liposuction

Kim Kardashian Liposuction and BBl

We think that Kim definitely had body-contouring surgery including liposuction and buttocks lift. She had a liposuction to remove fat from her sides and to achieve a slimmer waist and used this same fat to enhance her bum.

Kim Kardashian BBL Removal

There are also rumors saying that she had butt implants but then had them removed and chose to have liposuction and BBL instead.

Judging from her before and after photos, we think that she has undergone a body-contouring surgery consisting of BBL and Liposuction. And we are very sure about it!

Body contouring with BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) and liposuction involves a fat collection from the waist and a following transfer into the buttocks. Your fat is collected from other parts of your body via liposuction and injected into your bum.
