After spending months going au naturel—or, at the very least, Restylane-free—Kylie Jenner appears to have added regular lip filler appointments back to her calendar. On Tuesday afternoon, she shared a selfie on her Instagram Story, revealing in the caption that she had some sort of lip-related procedure the night before, courtesy of Pawnta Cosmetic Dermatology of Beverly Hills.
"Thanks @pawnta for coming through late last night with a lip touch up!" Jenner wrote. Though she didn't explicitly say what that "touch up" entailed, judging by the plumper pout she's sporting in the photo, it seems likely that the makeup mogul has gotten her formerly signature lip fillers once again. This comeback arrives about three months after the 21-year-old shared that she decided to have her filler removed. At the time, after a commenter wrote on Instagram that Jenner looked like "the old Kylie" in one post, Jenner admitted, "I got rid of all my filler."
""The current trend of “less is more” has always been my philosophy," wrote Pawtna, a registered nurse, in an e-mail. "My goal for Kylie was to create a natural lip shape aesthetically pleasing with a little extra pout . It’s all about the placement of the injectable filler and not the amount of filler. I prefer lips that are the perfect complement to ones natural facial features."
Though she never explicitly explained why she decided to stop getting her lips filled for a few months, it may have had something to do with 8-month-old daughter Stormi Webster. In her September 2018 cover story for Vogue Australia, Jenner posed makeup-free and spoke about how becoming a mother had helped her face her insecurities and accept her un-filled, unfiltered self. "I feel like having a daughter, and thinking about beauty in the future, has definitely changed me, and I feel like it has made me love myself more and accept everything about me," she told the magazine. "It's just having a different outlook on life so I can pass that on to her. I want to be an example for her. What kind of example would I be if she said she didn't like her ears, and then I didn't like them either? I just want to teach her that. I'm trying to love myself more."
Jenner has long been open about her insecurities about her lips. She revealed during a September 2017 episode of Life of Kylie that she first turned to lipstick and then to fillers after a boy she liked criticized the size of her lips. Earlier this year, the star promised she'd soon be sharing her entire experience with fillers with her fans, writing on Twitter that she was working on a vlog "about my whole lip filler journey," a journey that now includes, apparently, a return to her regularly scheduled injections.
