Kim Kardashian and plastic surgery? Shocking. Except it’s not. Apparently, not all the money and tight dresses in the world can stop plastic surgery rumors from plaguing you. True story for Kanye West’s other half Kim Kardashian.
Prior to her fame as a reality star, Kim first caught media attention when she was in her 20s as Paris Hilton’s best bud and stylist. She has come a long way since then, thanks to the hit reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the spin-offs that followed, even “out-faming” Hilton as a result.
But what’s more remarkable about Kim Kardashian, apart from her thriving television and fashion career and her ability to walk in those crazy heels, is how her looks have drastically changed since then. The before and after photos the internet so generously provides show Kim’s face and body looking like they have undergone all kinds of major changes.
That’s why that it’s hard to believe that the Kim Kardashian we now know of and the person she was when she was younger are the same. Of course, the media, as well as fans and critics alike, attribute her notable physical transformation to plastic surgery, no less.
It is also widely claimed that Kim has undergone more than a single procedure – one being a nose job, which is said to be evident in the reality star’s now perfect button of a nose. In fact, Kim is a favorite topic among plastic surgery sites with plastic surgeons giving their two cents about the possibility of Kim Kardashian going through a rhinoplasty procedure. And this is just one of the many cosmetic enhancements she’s been suspected of having.
Could the nose job claims about her be true? Clearly, her facial features are different from what they were over a decade ago. A subtle nose job could give that effect. She may have been busy amassing her wealth throughout the years, but it also appears that Kim has her own dose of insecurities. Who doesn’t? And if you can more than afford to make those insecurities go away, would you go for it? Many think Kim Kardashian did.
As a matter of fact, Kim herself admitted in an interview with ABC News in 2010 that her nose is her “biggest insecurity”. She even went on to say that she consulted with a plastic surgeon but didn’t go through with the procedure as the result would drastically change her appearance, which she didn’t want. The question is - aren’t her mirror selfies not enough proof that she doesn’t look the same from when she was just starting out in the show business?
Why the consistent speculations, though? It may have something to do with the fact that her nose doesn’t seem to be the same nose she had years ago. You see a drastic change in one’s face it’s hard to just un-see that. Could have she left out the fact that the rhinoplasty procedure she said she was considering of undergoing actually took place?
Her resolute denial to having a nose job leaves people speculating even more. Unlike Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, who’s admitted to getting some nip-tuck here and there, Kim, on the other hand, is adamant that she’s never been touched by a plastic surgeon despite the gazillion of rumors saying otherwise. She’s into spray tans and contouring but that’s about it – at least according to her.
