Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, has taken a bold beauty step to have her famous lip fillers removed.
The 20 year old, who gave birth to daughter Stormi Webster in February 2018, posted a more natural picture to her 110 Instagram followers.
Replying to one fan’s comment about looking like the ‘old’ Kylie, the Lip Kit creator responded: “I got rid of all my filler.”
As Kim Kardashian West’s little sister made the revelation, some speculated that the big lip phase is over.

Amber Davies, who famously got fillers after leaving the Love Island villa, retweeted a message that read: “The big lip phase is no more, Kylie Jenner has spoken,” asking if this was indeed the end to lip fillers.
Sharing the sentiment, another tweeted: “Good thing I didn’t end up getting lip fillers since @KylieJenner got rid of her’s aka fake lips are out.”

Another said: “Kylie Jenner getting rid of her lip fillers feels like the end of an era.”
While a third pondered: “Kylie Jenner got her lip fillers taken out. Hmm, could this be the end of the injection era?”
Could this be true? Well, according to one expert, the trend is much more likely to lead to more ‘natural’ finishes rather than abandoning fillers altogether.
Cosmetic and Dental Surgeon Dr Krystyn exclusively told OK! Online: “Nowadays, people are after a more natural enhancement and different techniques.”
She revealed that in her own clinics, more and more women are after an “enhancement” rather than a “drastic change” when it comes to their pout.
And in response: “Materials have been developed to aspire to this.”
What are the more natural looking lip filler treatments on offer?
1. Surgical fat transfers
This moves fat from areas such as thighs into the lips. Dr Krystyn explains: “Fat grafting has been known to be one of the best semi-permanent treatments, however there is a risk of over-filling the lips which makes them appear ducky and fake.
“They last the longest but it is very difficult to avoid lumpiness and produce a natural result.”
2. Non-surgical lip injections with hyaluronic acid (collagen)
“This is a clear gel that is reported to be very close to the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the body which reduces the chance of reactions. “
In her own clinics, she offers a luxury Lip augmentation and enhancement that entails a bespoke treatment plan tailored to suit their needs and requirements.
How does removing lip fillers work?
The expert cosmetic surgeon explained: “ This can be done with a product called Hyalase.
“This is an injectable enzyme that speeds up the natural breakdown of hyaluronic acid through a process called hydrolysis. Hyalase is not tissue specific, i.e is will dissolve all hyaluronic acid (natural or injected).
“There has been an increase in patients asking to have lip filler dissolved, either because they do not like the result they had been left with, due to poor injecting e.g lumps. folds or they wish to ‘start again’.
“Hyalase protocol means it should be only used in case of emergency, NOT as a get out of jail free.”
As a one in a 1000 patients could be subject to an allergic reaction to hyalase itself (with serious medical implications) most people wanting to follow in Kylie’s lead are recommend to stick it out.
She said: “When clients are unhappy with their lips it is prudent to advice them to wait until most of it has naturally dissolved before jumping straight hyalase as this will also dissolve their own natural lip tussle which is made up of collagen!”
The most important thing, of course, is to consult a medical cosmetic professional before undergoing any treatment.
