Keeping up with the Kardashians starlet Kylie Jenner has transformed so much in recent years, she's barely recognizable these days.
The time-honored, million-dollar question remains: Is it the natural progression of age (and Instagram filters), or is plastic surgery responsible?
The 18-year-old social media mogul was photographed on a red carpet this week looking puffier than ever before. Even by her standards.
According to several insiders, the reality beauty's new look seems to be the result of artificial enhancements and cosmetic procedures.
"Her lip augmentation is famous, so we know that Kylie's done lip fillers," Dr. Susan Evans tells Radar. "It is most likely hyaluronic acid."
"But her cheek bones look augmented also."
Indeed. That can be attributed to many factors, of course, so we do not want to jump to conclusions. This is not a statement of fact.
Opinions vary, but her appearance is striking.
Dr. Evans, who has not treated Jenner, said, "Her forehead looks smooth, with elevated, augmented eyebrows like Botox creates."
"Unlike Kylie, most women try to achieve a younger look with injectables," said Zara Harutyunyan, D.O.M., R.N., with Cosmetic Rejuvenation.
"It’s no secret that Kylie has had fillers in her lips, but she seems to have had fillers around the chin and jawline, as well as botox on her jaw."
That, she says, can "help soften jaw muscles for a less boxy and square face," but some of what we see is photo and makeup mastery.
"Other than that, I am certain that Kylie has a highly experienced makeup artist to help contour her face," Harutyunyan added.
Neither expert would comment on rumors of Jenner's breast augmentation and butt lift, both of which may or may not have occurred.
At this point, we would lean toward no, but ...
Let's just say that when Kim Kardashian is your older sister and idol, and you're taking it this far at age 18, you can't rule it out.
What do you think? Has Kylie gone too far with plastic surgery, as many observers believe, or is this much ado about nothing?
