Kylie Jenner's face may be home to the pout that launched a million lookalikes (and social media likes). But the very facial feature that forged her lip kit throne could be subject to change in the face of ongoing rumors that she's with child.
It's no secret that the youngest KarJenner is a fan of lip injections. The controversy over the increased volume of her lips even propelled a Keeping Up plot, in which she was hesitant to admit the procedure to the media and her fan base for fear of criticism.
With the rumor mill continuing to swirl that she's carrying Travis Scott's child (rumors which have only been egged on by Kylie herself in addition to her family), legitimate health concerns brew over whether or not she's continuing to receive such injections. And furthermore, that the reality of whether or not she's receiving them could tip us off as to the truth behind her alleged pregnancy.
In fact, her very own doctor, Simon Ourion, of Epione in Beverly Hills, has said in the past that he would not give pregnant women fillers.
"I recommend that women stop getting lip fillers as soon as they learn they are pregnant," he said. "No one knows the implications of lip fillers on pregnant patients since dermal fillers haven't been tested on pregnant women," he told Page Six.
A second doctor, Matthew Schulman, M.D, concurred with Kylie's dermatologist. “There have been no studies done about the safety of these products in this situation, and therefore they should never be used,” he told SELF. “We don’t know that it is dangerous, but we also do not know that it is safe. We have no idea if there will be detrimental effects on the unborn child.”
Back in a 2015 New York Times profile, Kylie said the following of her beauty routine and penchant for fillers: "I still do Juvéderm for my lips. I go to Dr. Ourian in Beverly Hills. He’s the best, and he’s super natural about it. I was going to somebody before, and it was just looking crazy. I would recommend that anyone who gets it done go for a filler that lasts only two to four months. It’s annoying to keep going back, but you have the option of stopping it."
According to the aforementioned rumor mill, Kylie is allegedly due in February. This would mean the date of conception was sometime in March, which would mean if she is pregnant, and due in February, that she is currently between five and six months pregnant, and nearing her third trimester. By now, we could gather that any Juvederm that was administered prior to conception would have begun to dissolve and dissipate by now. However, her lips still look plump as ever....
So what does this all mean? It's possible that her preggo lips have kicked in and are filling in, so to speak, for the Juvederm, which has already begun to dissolve. However, it's still wholly possible that she's not pregnant and is continuing to receive the aforementioned injections.
We're not doctors, but we must say, her lips do look to be more naturally full these days, as evidenced by the two photos included in this post. Welp, looks like we might have to wait until February for the real answer.
