It runs in the family! Rumors that Kendall Jenner got plastic surgery have been heating up thanks to before and after photos of the reality star. From a nose job to lip fillers to a full facial reconstruction, the 22-year-old has been the subject of several cosmetic conspiracy theories over the past few months. Scroll down to see what's real and what we've deemed "fake news."
Has Kendall Jenner had plastic surgery?
Devoted KUWTK viewers have long believed that Kendall got a nose job. Though she's denied going under the knife before, fans aren't convinced. "Smh if u actually look at before and after pictures, even Kendall Jenner has gotten a nose job and little bit of lip fillers," one Twitter user wrote, while another added, "Maybe Kendall Jenner didn't get her lips done but she DEFINITELY got a nose job. she's fooling nobody."
Dr. Alessi of the Alessi Institutes and the Face Forward foundation, who's never worked with Kendall, previously spoke to Life & Style about the change. "The lower lateral cartilage outline in the tip can be seen clearly and appears to have been reduced. The nasal bridge appears to be smaller," she shared. "This is more than one would expect with just makeup and smiling."
Kendall Jenner Before and After:
After the brunette beauty was called out for sporting a plumper pout on Instagram, she blamed sister Kylie. "All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, ‘OMG Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstruction — look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!’ I was like, this is CRAZY. I didn’t even address it at the time. Because if I address it, people are going to be like, 'Oh, so she’s defending herself — she must be guilty,'" the reality star wrote on her blog. "As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed? It doesn’t even make sense."
Kylie spoke up as well. "You guys, Kendall let me over-line her lip today with lipliner and everyone thinks she got lip injections," she said. "I'm sorry, Kendall."

Fans also accused the brunette beauty of getting lip fillers before her appearance at the Golden Globes earlier this month. "I hate talking about that family but I'm gonna say it, she's definitely had something done to her lips. No amount of makeup can do that to her lips," one viewer tweeted, before another added, "Kendall Jenner used to be so pretty, why did she have to go and do that to her lips and get all that work done? Now she just looks tragic."
People also criticized the star's acne, but she clapped back. "never let that s--t stop you!" she tweeted in response to one user who wrote, "Ok but @KendallJenner showing up and strutting her acne while looking like a gorgeous star is what every girl needs to understand."

In 2015, Kendall opened up about her skincare battle. “Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self esteem," she wrote on her blog. "I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face. Sure, I had crushes in high school, but I wouldn’t even think about looking at guys.”
The world's highest paid model continued, “What I want everyone to understand is that it’s been a process: It wasn’t anything that happened overnight. But slowly, I’m working towards not caring, and I’m just in so much of a better place about it all now that I’m older.” Clearly, she's doing just fine.
