LOS ANGELES — When Kylie Jenner showed up on her Sunday 'gram without her signature pouty lips, fans were quick to notice.
People reported that after a follower commented on her looking like the "old Kylie", the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star responded that she got rid of her lip fillers. The revelation has prompt the curious to look up whether that is even possible. Answer: yes, totally!
According to cosmetic surgeons interviewed by the Irish Examiner, People, and several other publications, lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body, typically in the skin, hair follicles, eyes, gums, and joints.
The fillers are temporary, and need maintenance every six to eight months. Otherwise, the hyaluronic acid will dissolve and wear off, which is the simplest way to undo them.
Another way to get rid of them is by injecting hyaluronidase, an enzyme that speeds up the filler's breakdown and helps it dissolve in about 48 hours.
The procedure is completely safe if done by a professional. There may be side effects from the needle, but not so much from the enzyme and filler, which are both harmless substances.
In most cases, the lip goes back to how it was pre-filler, but eagle-eyed netizens and plastic surgeons have noticed that that's not quite the case with Kylie.
So either something else is still in there plumping her lips, or those Kylie Cosmetics are just that good.
