Celebrities Like Kylie Jenner Are Influencing Plastic Surgery More Than Ever

Cosmetic surgery is on the rise

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

There’s a new trend in plastic surgery--and it probably has something to do with Kylie Jenner. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), there’s been a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments over the past year, and celebrities are influencing young patients more than ever. 

“The teen and young adult years are a highly impressionable time, and the more consumers are inundated with celebrity images via social media, the more they want to replicate the enhanced, retouched images that are passed off as reality,” says the president of the AAFPRS, according to StyleCaster. Eighty-two percent of surveyed surgeons said that celebrities were a major influence in decisions to have plastic surgery, and younger and younger patients are asking for a nip and tuck.

The most high profile cosmetic surgery of 2015 was Kylie Jenner’s lip augmentation. Initially, the teenager claimed her bigger pout was the work of lip liner but eventually fessed up about getting injectables. Teen girls all over social media are now emulating a similar “duck face” pout and Kylie’s surgeon, Dr. Simon Ourian, says that his patient is the poster girl for perfect lips at his Beverly Hills practice.
