How the Kardashians have impacted Plastic Surgery: Part II
The Kardashians in general have not only helped normalize and remove the taboo associated with plastic surgery for the general public but they have helped other celebrities with coming to terms with their procedures in the media and negating the need to hide past procedures or future procedures they are considering.
Kim Kardashians sister Kylie Jenner has every high school girl asking her parents for lip injections for birthday, Christmas and Graduation gifts. The drastic change in her lips and the attention the media placed on it through social media and selfies has shaped the perception of young girls and women in general to view large and full lips as the norm and not something that one should be embarrassed about. As a result lip injections via the use of Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero went through the roof and plastic surgeons and nurse injectors have been incredibly busy.
