Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, Kylie Jenner, has inspired a huge rise in cosmetic procedures, with fans wanting to copy her look. Not satisfied with just copying Kylie’s hair and makeup, fans are now requesting cosmetic procedures, such as, cheek and lip fillers to attempt to look more like their idol. Experts have revealed that there has been a huge spike in cosmetic procedure requests of this nature, which has been named, the ‘Kylie Effect’
Worryingly, the star seems to have made it acceptable for teenagers under the age of eighteen to have lip fillers. She has millions of followers on popular social media sites from all over the world, and it seems that whatever Kylie does, her fans want to copy her.
Apprentice winner, Dr. Leah Totton, says the popularity of fillers has risen sharply, which she accredits to the teenage star. Totton told Heat Magazine, “It used to be Kim Kardashian who everyone wanted to copy, but now the most common procedure I’m asked for is Kylie Jenner’s lips.”
The trend for ‘selfies’ has also risen dramatically over the last few years, and has inevitably made people much more focused on their appearance. It is becoming common place now that people are having cosmetic procedures for aesthetic reasons, rather than to fix or correct a specific problem.
