After spending months filler-free, Kylie Jenner is back under the needle once more. On Tuesday afternoon, she shared a selfie on her Instagram Story and revealed in the caption that she had a lip 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. According to Jenner’s practitioner, Pawnta, a registered nurse, the goal was to create a “natural lip shape” for the 21-year-old with a “less is more” approach.
This return arrives about three months after Jenner 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.”
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 bare-faced and spoke about how becoming a mother had helped her accept her 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.”
It’s looking safe to say Jenner’s pervasive effect on cosmetic enhancements is going nowhere.
