There’s been a ton of speculation about just how much plastic surgery Kim Kardashian has had done. She has admitted to getting injections in her backside but insists they are cortisone shots to help with her psoriasis. The ShoeDazzle founder has always denied getting a nose job.
“I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians shared via a live stream in August 2016. The rumors she got butt implants started after she was photographed with a dent in her derriere.

“I lived right behind Kitson [a boutique in Los Angeles near Cedars-Sinai Hospital]. One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars. I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course, I get a huge indent on my butt.”
“But what’s funny is about my nose, it’s my biggest insecurity,” she said on “Nightline” in 2010. “I always want to get my nose done. … I went to a doctor, I had them take the pictures, he showed me what it would look like and it just didn’t — It — I wouldn’t look the same.”
“I never had my nose done,” Kardashian West revealed while getting her makeup done by Mario Dedivanovic during The Master Class in Los Angeles in February 2019. “Everyone thought I did, and I said wait until I have kids because your real features come out.”

“Pictures, I swear, I look at them and would be like, ‘Wow the bump looks so much bigger in some pictures than in others’,” she explained about her nose looking different in photos, before offering her top tip for preventing smile lines from forming: “Don’t smile.”
“I said you will see when I have kids, they will have the same nose as me,” Kim added on Twitter.
Sydney cosmetic surgeon Dr. Phoebe Jones told Who she suspects the reality star relies on “chin, cheek, jawline, and lip filler, and anti-wrinkle injections” for her line-free visage as well as undergoing “multiple Brazilian butt lifts and liposuction, breast implants and rhinoplasty.”

“Everyone always thinks I’ve had my nose done or my lips done or just anything to my face like besides Botox, which to me isn’t plastic surgery,” Kim told Harper’s Bazaar in 2012.
“People always say I’ve had a nose job and they’ll use before and after pictures but the after picture is really taken before. It’s so funny, it just depends on how your nose is contoured.”

“I am not against botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non-surgical procedure,” Kim wrote on her now-defunct blog. In a September 2010 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she regretted getting Botox.
“But I think when you’re young there are other ways you can look after your skin … Botox just wasn’t necessary for me at this age.”
In December 2014, Kim Kardashian joined forces with Apple and (RED) to raise money for the fight against AIDS through her app game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.”
The then 34-year-old reality star raised a toast for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation on World AIDS Day.
