Kim Kardashian Admits Getting Botox

While many celebrities skirt the issue of whether they have had, or would have plastic surgery, others are very outspoken on the subject and are ready to share their nips and tucks with the world. Kim Kardashian and her sisters have faced many rumors about whether they have had plastic or cosmetic surgery, but Kim claims that most are “grossly exaggerated.”

Kim Kardashian and sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, and mother Kris Jenner, interviewed with ABC News’ Nightline later last month and shared the types of procedures they have had – and what they haven’t. Kim admitted that even though she’s not against plastic surgery, she has tried Botox. The rumors about Kim having breast implants or nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty) simply aren’t true. Mom Kris Jenner reports that she has never had her nose done, despite the rumors.

Kim also admits that there is a lot of pressure to be skinny, especially when she was modeling for Playboy. She states, “I was on the fence about it. Do I want to be viewed this way or do I want to show women that, hey, I am curvy. I’m not like all these stick-skinny models that I see on the cover of all those magazines, including Playboy.” As a result, Kim has not had liposuction but has had VelaShape body contouring treatments that help to tighten, tone and firm the skin.

ABC News reports that the entire family is a tabloid sensation, and have to deal with constantly being photographed and even criticized publicly about their appearance. Still, the family’s fan base continues to grow and the Kardashians have built a business empire that includes a fashion line, diet supplements and fragrances.

Among the most popular celebrity plastic surgeries are breast augmentation, lip augmentation, facelift surgery and rhinoplasty. Still, celebrities aren’t immune to the occasional plastic surgery disaster. In fact, Bruce Jenner, step dad of the Kardashians,  himself experienced a bad cosmetic surgery experience when he underwent a face lift in the 80’s and nose job that ended up in a disaster. He has since had facelift revision surgery to correct the problem.
