The Kardashian family burst onto the scene in 2007 thanks to E! Reality tv show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’. Last year, the youngest of the family, Kylie Jenner made headlines over the size of her lips. The lip-hysteria resulted in a teen trend of the ‘Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge’ in April where teens sucked on shot glasses, with disastrous results ranging from extremely enlarged lips to red bruising and bleeding.
After denying any plastic surgery for months, in May Jenner finally admitted to having temporary lip fillers, at the tender age of 17 years old. On that same day, cosmetic surgery group Transform saw a 700% increase in enquiries about lip fillers.
With lip injections there is a chance of allergic reaction and infection, yet no more than other surgeries. The procedure is fairly safe, often temporary and as a result, increasingly common. The main warning being always approach a professional and only do what’s right for you.
The Kardashian family influence is unprecedented and is in no way reducing. With lip injections, waist trainers and contouring under their belts, you can’t help but wonder what the sisters will endorse next.
