PLEASE NOTE: I am not Ms. Jenner’s doctor, I am merely commenting on how lip injections can be reversed. All sources for this article are listed at the end.  

First, How Did Kylie Jenner Augment Her Lips?

Kylie Jenner denied rumors of lip injections for a long time, claiming she achieved her plump lips through makeup – specifically by overlining her lips. However, according to an interview published in the New York Times in September 2015, Ms. Jenner finally revealed that she achieved her lip augmentation results with Juvederm injections. Juvederm is the brand name for hyaluronic acid manufactured by Allergan.  

Juvederm has several variations with several names, so only Ms. Jenner and her doctor know the exact product given.

Kylie continued with lip injections, increasing the size and playing with shape for years, while simultaneously growing a cosmetic brand and ultimately creating an empire – which many claim is a result of her lip injections.

Next, How Was This Lip Augmentation Reversed?

One reason why Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are so popular is because they can be reversed. This is done by injecting a melting agent called Hyaluronidase. When this chemical is injected into filled lips, the HA filler will dissolve quickly and be absorbed by the body.  

This is what Ms. Jenner had done, resulting in much smaller, more natural looking lips that she’s been sporting for the past week.

The reversal of HA filler is something many aren’t aware of. The ability to reverse the effects of this filler is a huge selling point and allows patients the option to change their look at will, much like Kylie Jenner has done.

What Does This Mean for the Future of Lip Filler?

Because Kylie Jenner is credited with the rise in popularity of lip filler, many are speculating that, because she had hers removed, others will follow suit and there will be a dip in lip filler patients.

It’s important to note that, while Ms. Jenner had most of her filler removed, she still has filler in her lips. It’s understated and beautifully natural, as opposed to the large, obviously augmented lips she’s been trademarking for the past 3 years.

Not surprisingly, most patients who receive lip filler do not want giant, overly filled lips. Rather, these patients want a subtle enhancement or to fix asymmetry.

I believe the popularity of HA filler will remain, and, though Kylie has opted for a more natural augmentation, this popularity will not falter.

What Would Have Happened If Ms. Jenner Did Not Reverse Her Lip Augmentation/ Lip Filler?

HA fillers get absorbed by your body over time, so eventually your lips revert back to their initial size, volume, and shape. Unless, of course, you continually receive injections prior to absorption.
