When you think about Kylie Jenner, there are probably a few things that stick out in your mind.
Coincidentally, those are the things that stick out in real life, too: her boobs, her ass, and her lips.
Like, sure, Kylie has more going on than just her ridiculous body.
She’s probably got thoughts in her head and feelings in her heart and all that good stuff.
But, for better or for worse, those certain assets always tend to get the bulk of the attention when it comes to this girl.
And according to her plastic surgeon, Dr. Simon Ourian, her lips in particular have not only gotten an insane amount of attention — they’ve also inspired an insane amount of copycats.
“When she first talked about her minimal cosmetic procedures I saw a new trend of younger women who suddenly felt empowered to unapologetically want to look more beautiful,” he explains in a new interview.
“It’s like Kylie single-handedly gave a whole generation the ticket to a more enhanced version of themselves.”
Dr. Ourian adds that he’d “treated hundreds of celebrities before but very few of them were bold enough to share their secrets with such transparency.”
But Kylie’s influence “was much that what was once a taboo has now become a bragging right. People want to brag about having their lips done.”
Lip injections are so popular now that “My social media patients put up a selfie with me so that they can say they came to our office.”
He’s not wrong — Dr. Ourian is the go-to guy for all the Kardashians, Kim Zolciak and Brielle Biermann, and countless other reality stars and models.
But he’s also leaving out the darker side of Kylie and her lip injections.
For instance, remember when she first got them? She was still in high school.
She said that she got them in the first place not to empower herself, but because other kids were making fun of her.
And while some young women may be getting lip injections to emulate her, others who aren’t able to afford the procedure or who are too young to have it done have resorted to less savory means.
Don’t act like you’re going to forget that Kylie Jenner lip challenge and its disastrous results anytime soon.
Of course it isn’t Kylie’s fault that a bunch of young people hurt themselves trying to get plumper lips, and if the injections do make her feel better, than good for her.
But we can probably all agree that at this point, her lips have gotten a little out of control.
At the very least, her journey to having the biggest lips in Calabasas isn’t the magical fairy-tale journey Dr. Ourian here is making it out to be.
