Kim Kardashian has a lot to be thankful for. There’s the gorgeously famous husband, the ravishing riches, a beautiful little girl and more staff than you can imagine.

She’s also quite a natural beauty, not that you’d know it.

And as she attempts to break the internet with a raunchy magazine cover showing off her assets, we have a look at all the work we, and the experts, think she might have had done...

Nose job

Kim Kardashian’s nose is pretty perfect, but she says she’s only ever been tempted to tinker with it, and that she hasn’t actually gone through with it.

The experts think otherwise.

“Kim has transformed over the past eight years,” Dr Anthony Youn told in an interview recently.

“I suspect that she may have had a rhinoplasty [nose job], as her nose looks thinner, shorter, and more refined now than it did in 2006.”

Dr Anthony Erian, a facial rejuvenation surgeon specialising in rhinoplasty, agrees. “The nose is a very important feature and it can transform the face,” he said.

“Although this operation is anatomically straightforward, it requires the most meticulous of surgical skills, and the aesthetic anticipation and perception of an artist, in order to form a ‘new nose’ that will blend in and harmonise with the whole face. 

“This, in my opinion, has been performed, and the result is good.”

Chin surgery

There’s no denying Kim’s face certainly looks different in her 30s than it did in her 20s, without actually looking any older.

Some surgeons claim her chin has been made smaller – and it certainly looks very neat, but again, she denies having any surgery.


Hands up - Kim has finally admitted to having Botox.


In an interview with late-night news programme Nightline, she said, “I’m totally not against plastic surgery. I’ve tried Botox before. That’s the one thing that I’ve done.”

Laser hair removal

Asim Shahmalak, a surgeon and hair loss expert who appears on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies, reckons that Kim has had a little ‘help’ with her hairline.

“It is very likely that Kim Kardashian has had the baby hairs around the hairline removed. This can be done by waxing, but it’s more likely that Kim has opted for laser surgery, a more permanent form of removal.”

Butt implants

Kim’s backside is one of her most famous assets. She has always denied having it surgically enhanced, even going as far as having an X-ray and showing the picture on TV as proof.

But there is still a rumour going around suggesting the star had liposuction on her legs and fat inserted into her butt cheeks.

In the run-up to their wedding, Kanye West reportedly banned Kim from having any more surgery. And we couldn’t agree more. Surgery can be addictive, and all it takes is one tuck too far and ‘stunning’ can suddenly start looking ‘weird’.
