Kylie Jenner removes lip filler, but should you?

Tuesday, July 17, 2018


Kylie Jenner set the Internet ablaze with a startling revelation on Instagram: She’s removed her lip filler.


The youngest Kardashian-Jenner sister was responding to a fan’s question about a recent Instagram photo in which Jenner had noticeably smaller lips.


“She looks like the old Kylie here,” the commenter wrote.


“I got rid of all my filler,” Jenner replied.


Lip filler adds temporary volume and definition to one’s lips.


Jenner’s admission resulted in plenty of social media buzz about her kisser.


“It’s extremely significant due to her influence on the younger generation,” says Janelle Klubertanz, a certified plastic surgery nurse with Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic in Green Bay. “Many of her fans may follow her lead on things related to fashion, concept of beauty and more.”


It’s important to have a conversation with an experienced cosmetic service professional when considering adding or removing fillers, Klubertanz says.


“There are many people offering such cosmetic services but experience is an important portion of ensuring a positive patient outcome,” says Klubertanz, who offers that kind of experience.


“Lip fillers (as used in our practice) are made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar found naturally in the body that adds temporary volume and definition when injected into lips,” she says. “The treatment is not permanent and can be dissolved.


“There are permanent options but we do not recommend or offer them within our practice.”
