Kendall Jenner, the 17-year-old model and reality TV star, recently posted a picture of herself on her Instagram account. Her lips appeared fuller than usual which prompted speculation that the teen had undergone a cosmetic procedure.
Psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser said that if this were the case, it is something to be concerned about. Kaiser says that if a teenager starts getting cosmetic enhancements at a young age, the impulse to alter and enhance their appearance becomes a part of their identity. Kaiser believes the star has grown up in an environment which is heavily focused on appearance, therefore a cosmetic procedure, though unfortunate, is not unlikely.
New York plastic surgeon, Dr Barry Weintraub said that surgery on teens is not uncommon.
However Dr Raffi Hovespian, a Triple Board Certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, suggested that her lips may be the work of pouting, lip gloss and lip plumping gels.
Kendall's famous family has been subjected to surgery rumours since the launch of their reality series.
