With the power of social media and the endless filters on them nowadays, it is pretty easy to change your appearance before posting to the gram.
“I had my one lip insecurity thing, so I got lip filler, and it was the best thing I've ever done,” she told HommeGirls in April this year. “I don't regret it. But I always thought I was cute."
After admitting she’d dabbled with lip fillers, speculation has since swirled about other procedures Kylie may have had.
As well as denying having surgery to change how her face looks, she also hit back at claims that she was insecure about her looks.
Speaking to her sister Khloe, Kylie said that while it’s ‘normal to be insecure sometimes’, people often make assumptions about her self-confidence which simply aren’t true.
Kylie said: “I always remember being the most confident kid in the room.
“I always loved myself — I still love myself — and one of the biggest misconceptions about me is that I was this insecure child and I got so much surgery to change my whole face, which is false, I’ve only gotten fillers.”
She added: “I feel like I don’t want that to be a part of my story.”
Now, Kyle has explained why she often looks different in before and after photos, and reiterated once more that she's not had any plastic surgery.
Being interviewed by Jennifer Lawrence for Interview Magazine, Kylie touched on people comparing some of her before and after photos.
She said: "I did end up getting lip fillers, but… I’ll see before and after photos when I’m 12 years old versus 26 and my eyebrows are filled differently. I have contour on. I’m like, ‘How can you compare my 12-year-old face and say I’ve gotten my jaw shaved and eyelids removed?’ I’m like, ‘What are we talking about?’”
Elsewhere in the interview, Kylie touched on bringing contouring lips into the mainstream.
She said: "I think it started because I just wanted big, fat, juicy lips, and I just wanted that illusion that I had fuller lips. But no one taught me. When I started doing that, I wasn’t really working with makeup artists and stuff."
