It’s no secret that Kris Jenner will never be up for a Mother of the Year award. While the head of the Kardashian household may have great business savvy, it is generally considered ill-advised to encourage your kids to have plastic surgery. In a recent interview with Cosmo magazine, cover girl Khloe Kardashian dishes on the last year as well as her childhood—which including hearing her mother tell others that Khloe needs a nose job.
While her big sisters and her mother may be comfortable going under the knife at a whim, Khloe Kardashian has long stood out from the rest of her family. Not only is she taller and blonder than her siblings, she is also the only one who has maintained her natural look, without plastic surgery and despite the harsh criticism she often receives about her looks—not only from rude commentators online, but also from her own family.
In an interview with Cosmo UK magazine, a magazine that focuses on how to change one’s appearance when not giving outdated dating advice, Khloe revealed her beauty secrets, including dropping 30 pounds.
She also revealed that despite pressure from her mother as a child and makeup artists over the years, she has never caved in and gotten rhinoplasty.
“Words are the most powerful weapon; they can leave scars forever. She didn’t mean harm, but when I was around nine I overheard my mum telling her friend I needed a nose job. I was shocked; I hadn’t even thought about it. I’ve grown into my face but I’ve had makeup artists tell me, ‘You should get a nose job.’ I’m so happy that I never have…
“I’m proud for losing weight when I wanted to and I’ve never resorted to surgery. I’m not against it – one day I probably will but it would be on my terms. I won’t be bullied into it by social media or anyone else. I love my body and always have done.”
As plastic surgery seems to run in the Kardashian family, with famous sister Kim going under the knife for everything from a buttocks augmentation to Botox and Kourtney openly admitting that she regrets getting breast implants, plus her mother’s numerous nips and tucks from facelifts to breast augmentation, it is no surprise that Khloe would consider having a few cosmetic procedures herself. However, it is good that she is strong enough to not cave to pressure, as those who undergo plastic surgery under the wrong conditions are rarely happy with their procedures.
2013 was a rough year for Khloe and her messy public divorce from husband Lamar Odom has taken its toll. For many celebrities, such an epic breakup often results in a full makeover, whether its trying out a new haircut, unusual hair color or even going under the knife for a fully refreshed appearance to re-enter the dating scene.
However, given that Khloe has yet to use plastic surgery to heal her wounds, she probably won’t now.
