Since first rising to fame after leaking a sex tape, Kim Kardashian has been under scrutiny for signs of plastic surgery. While she looks to have augmented her lips and breasts, her buttocks is her real claim to fame and she has long denied that it is a result of plastic surgery.
Kim’s rear end may be the most famous buttocks in the world and it has long been thought that the reality star underwent surgical buttocks enhancement to give it a big, full shape. Kim and her family have always denied that she has buttocks implants, saying her butt is all natural, but still there have been skeptics.
In a bid to end the rumors once and for all, Kim actually had a doctor take an x-ray of her derriere and posted the implant-free photos on her sister, Khloe’s website. For some reason she seemed to think that no implants meant no surgery had taken place.
However, Makemeheal.com’s panel of experts were quick to point out that buttock enhancement doesn’t always mean surgery and that Kim could have undergone some other form of treatment to plump her bum, using fat injections from another part of her body to place in her butt, for a big, round juicy look.
Now, it seems that Makemeheal.com and others were right and Kim did have a buttocks augmentation, just not via buttocks implants, but via fat injections that do not show up on an x-ray.
“Kim had lipo on her legs and the doctor moved the fat into her butt. That¹s why it didn¹t show up on the X-ray,” a source told The Making of Kim Kardashian, a new magazine from the editors of Life & Style.
Although Kim routinely denies doing anything plastic surgery related, except for trying Botox, she has a lot of doubters. Her first ex-husband Damon Thomas has opened up about paying for her plastic surgery, which included not only buttocks augmentation, but breast implants and liposuction as well.
“She wanted to have that lifestyle,” he previously said. “She wanted to be what she ultimately became.”
Despite her efforts to convince the public otherwise, Kim has most likely had some form of buttocks enhancement that is not visible on an x-ray.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Michelle Copeland explains to Life & Style, “It definitely appears that Kim had her butt augmented.
“An implant has to be radio opaque to show up on an X-ray, so it’s possible she has a type of implant that would not be detected.”
In addition to buttocks augmentation, over the years fans have also detected other plastic surgery procedures. She has probably had breast implants placed (possibly to even out her enhanced rear) as well as liposuction. She has been open about trying Botox and having an adverse reaction to it, but she has never been open about her likely lip augmentation. Kim’s lips constantly seem to be getting bigger, even while she was pregnant with newly arrived North West.
Kim’s butt has increased with her weight gain, but may slowly shrink again as she loses the excess baby weight.
