Kylie Jenner has grown up on-screen, maturing from a cute pre-teen to a sultry 18 year-old with millions of fans. Whether it’s due to her relationship or social media antics, Kylie’s name is never out of the headlines. With rumours spreading that her looks were thanks to surgery, the star admitted that she’d had lip fillers
. This led many to believing that Kylie has had more work done than she’s confessed to. Is this the case, or are puberty and make-up the real reasons for the transformation? MYA took a look at the youngest of our favourite celebrity clan.
Shedding her cute-girl image, the teen began wearing more revealing clothes when she turned seventeen. Kylie swapped her t-shirts and jeans for plunging necklines that showed off her cleavage. Soon reports surfaced claiming to have insider knowledge that the star’s new curves were down to a boob job
What the Star Says
In response to the speculation, Kylie denied that her curves were anything but natural; crediting clever underwear and her age for her new look.
She said: "No, people – I haven't gotten breast implants! Everyone is obsessed with that. Truth is, as I've gotten older, I've gained 15 pounds and my body has changed: I've definitely filled out."
In September 2015, Kylie uploaded Kylie Comes Clean: They're Real. During the video the star shows how a padded bra is the secret to her buxom cleavage with a before-and-after in an attempt to end the rumours.

Kylie’s powerful presence on social media is partly down to her stunning selfies that show off her features. Although her lips and body have sparked the most debate, in recent snaps her chin appears narrower and more tapered than her earlier photos… more rumours followed.
What The Experts Say
Fuelling the rumours, many surgeons have come out to say that the teen star has had a chin reconstruction, amongst other treatments.
Plastic surgeon Mark Ho has not worked with Kylie but believes she has undergone some surgery.
In 2015, he spoke to Closer magazine, saying: "Kylie has made herself look way beyond her years. All the surgery I suspect she's had - fillers to her lips and cheeks, a nose job
and possibly some bone shaving around her jaw - is ageing her."
That may be the surgeon’s opinion, but we happen to think that Kylie looks great!
What The Star Says
In a magazine interview, Kylie discussed the aftermath that followed after she came clean about her lips.
She said: “Yeah, then people were saying I got my chin reconstructed, that I got a nose job, an eyebrow lift, I got my boobs done, this and that. So I wanted to come out and say that this is crazy and I only got my lips done.”
On her website, the star wrote: "I'm not against plastic surgery
but as of now, I only have fillers. Like I've said before, it has always been a huge insecurity of mine and I wanted to make a change."
As the eyes of the world watch her every move, the Keeping Up with The Kardashians star handles life in the limelight better than some celebrities twice her age. As part of one of the world’s most famous families, she has access to make-up artists and stylists that help ease the pressure to be perfect. Until she confirms any surgery, we’re inclined to believe her. Kylie, we love you!
