Kylie Jenner and Botched doctors Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow star on the same network, but sharing their E! home with the powerful Kardashian-Jenner family didn’t stop the plastic surgeons from criticizing Kylie.
As Entertainment Tonight reports, Nassif and Dubrow appeared on Monday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, and they weighed in on Kylie’s decision to get lip injections when she was just 17-years-old. A caller asked the doctors if they think that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star—who is celebrating her 19th birthday today—has had too much work done for someone her age.
The Botched doctors seemed to suggest that Kylie wasn’t being a great role model by plumping her pout before she turned 18. They pointed out that young girls look up to Kylie, so she might have a lot of impressionable fans who are pointing to her lip injections and trying to convince their parents to let them get the cosmetic procedure.
“Anything that Kylie does, the whole world follows,” Nassif said.
“When she moves the needle, overnight she made it acceptable, under the age of 18, to have lip injections. We don’t agree with that,” Dubrow chimed in.
The doctors also threw a little shade at Kylie’s parents, Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner. According to Nassif, if he and Dubrow had daughters, they wouldn’t let them get lip injections. However, Nassif admits that Kylie’s lips look “great.”
As People points out, Kylie was initially reluctant to reveal that her fuller lips were the result of using a filler. She tried to keep her cosmetic procedure a secret from her young fans for as long as possible by telling her publicist to make sure that she didn’t get asked about her lips during interviews. This worked for a short period of time, and she managed to avoid having to lie and deny that she was getting lip injections. However, in October, 2014, Kim Kardashian did try to claim that Kylie was just using makeup to make her lips look larger. Kim told Pixiwoo that Kylie was drawing outside her natural lip line with lip liner.
According to Buzzfeed, interviewers eventually started asking Kylie about her lips, and she would usually respond to their queries by saying that she hadn’t gone under the knife or had plastic surgery. This is technically true, because lip fillers are not a surgical procedure. However, during a May, 2015, episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kylie finally broke down and confessed to plumping her pout because she was insecure about her lips.
As Allure reports, Kylie has admitted that she loves having big lips so much that she took things too far at one point, and she was worried that she would end up starring on a crossover episode of Botched and KUWTK.
“I got excited and felt like I needed to do a lot,” Kylie revealed. “And then I had to go back and have it fixed, and it was a crazy process. Thank God I didn’t end up on Botched.”
Kylie told the New York Times that her temporary Juvéderm filler only lasts four months, so she wasn’t in any real danger of having to pay the Botched doctors a visit.
Even though Kylie has claimed that she’s too young to undergo invasive cosmetic procedures that actually involve scalpels and stitches, In Touch Weekly is speculating that she got breast implants for her 19th birthday. Many of her fans have commented that her breasts look bigger in the Snapchat photo below.
Kylie Jenner has denied breast implant rumors before, saying that she sometimes wears a Bombshell by Victoria’s Secret padded push-up bra that makes her breasts look fake. However, after the whole lip filler fiasco, her fans might be disinclined to believe her.
