In terms of the most famous teenagers in the world, Kylie Jenner has to be on the top of the list. Jenner is of course a member of the famous Jenner and Kardashian family that has been featured on the reality television series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”. When the series started, Jenner was only 10 years old, but just turned 18 in August 2015.
Since a lot of people saw her grow up on camera, they got to see the drastic changes that she went through. However, it seems like she didn’t end up looking like many people thought she would, leading to a lot of rumors about plastic surgery. Jenner certainly does look much different than she did just a couple of years ago, but has she had work done?
According to Jenner, she says that the only time she has been put under was when she was in a dentist’s office, and that the only plastic surgery that she has gotten is a lip filling procedure that can cost between $2,000 and $5,000. Jenner said that “I’m not against plastic surgery…But as of now, I only have lip fillers. Like I’ve said before, it has always been a huge insecurity of mine and I wanted to make a change.
Some experts and fans have said that there have been plenty of other surgeries that she hasn’t disclosed, especially in her body. Jenner protested by saying “I haven’t gotten breast implants! Everyone is obsessed with that. Truth is, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gained 15 pounds and my body has changed; I’ve definitely filled out.” Jenner also said that it’s body contouring with makeup that has given her a fuller appearance.
Doctors have said, however, that Jenner has had at least a half dozen plastic surgeries over the past couple of years, even going into detail. These experts have said that Jenner has undergone a breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, an eyebrow lift, a nose job, a chin implant and even jaw reshaping. It’s a lot of pressure, as one doctor said that “she’s having to compete with older sisters who’ve already made their fame and fortune from being seen as gorgeous and sexy.”
If true, how much would all of those surgeries cost Jenner? A typical breast augmentation surgery costs around $4,000 in the United States, eyelid surgery runs around $2,100, an eyebrow lift is usually $3,200, nose jobs can cost between $4,000 and $5,000, chin implants are about $5,000 and jaw reshaping can cost up to $10,000. All of these surgeries combine to cost the average person around $30,000, with the Kardashian family probably ponying up more for top surgeons, so it could be in the neighborhood of $50,000.
That’s an insanely high amount for someone to spend on plastic surgery, especially for someone that is just 18 years old. While sister Kim has spent more reportedly, she has more than a decade head start and a much higher net worth. Jenner is estimated to be worth between $2 million and $5 million, and if the low end estimate is right, then plastic surgery made a fair sized dent into her bank account.
If Jenner had a little help from the family, she should be just fine, though. After all, the estimated net worth of the Jenner and Kardashian clan is estimated to be in the neighborhood of $300 million, so they can continue to get all of the plastic surgery that they want for a very, very long time.
