Alex Karidis comments on Kylie Jenner’s cosmetic surgery for the Daily Mail

Alex Karidis on Kylie Jenner's face reshaping with cosmetic surgery

Kylie Jenner has been gracing our television screens for a decade, had a baby and has been named the world’s youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes magazine, all by the tender age of 21. However, it was the recent photographs of her celebrating her 22nd birthday that led fans to assume she was a whole decade older.

Social media was set alight with speculation over her ‘real’ age as many wondered if cosmetic surgery was to blame for her more mature look. Kylie has always denied going under the knife – in February she stated, “People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false. I’m terrified! I would never. They don’t understand what good hair and make-up and, like, fillers, can really do. It’s fillers. I’m not denying that.”

In a bid to find out the truth about Kylie’s tweakments, the Daily Mail turned to our medical director Alex Karidis and asked him to review photographs of her face over the years.

Face reshaping with cosmetic surgery

The distinctive change to her lips and face shape may be down to dermal fillers, but Alex thought that she may have undergone a rhinoplasty as well: “Her nose appears thinner, particularly at the tip.

“Her brows look more arched and elevated. This could be the result of a non-surgical procedure or tattooing. Kylie could also have had her upper eyelid opened up and she may have also had an upper lip lift.

“Both procedures are minimal but make a real difference. They leave very minimal scarring which could be covered up with make-up.”

So, what was Alex’s view on whether Kylie’s cosmetic surgery procedures had prematurely aged her:

“Kylie’s admitted to having some work done and I would say she looks 26 or 27 rather than her 22 years. No doubt as a businesswoman and mother, she wants to be taken seriously and look mature. This is human nature.”
