After years of denying rumors from fans and critics alike, Kylie Jenner reveals the truth about her cosmetic surgeries and how much she regrets them. 

In the season finale of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” the 25-year-old admitted to getting her breasts done at 19 – the year before giving birth to her first child, Stormi. 

"Not thinking I'd have a child when I was 20. Like, they were still healing. And I had beautiful breasts – just gorgeous. Perfect size, perfect everything. And I just wish, I obviously never got them done to begin with," she told her best friend Anastasia Karanikolaou

She recommended that anyone considering the procedure to “wait until after children.”

“Obviously, I have a daughter, too. I would be heartbroken if she wanted to get her body done at 19,” she said. “I want to be, like, the best mom and best example for her. I wish I could, like, be her, and do it all differently. Cause I wouldn’t touch anything.”

In an earlier episode, Jenner shared that many people falsely believe she has gotten plenty of work done on her face due to being “insecure.” 

“One of the biggest misconceptions about me is that I was like this insecure child and I got so much surgery to change my whole face. Which is false,” Jenner said. “I've only gotten fillers. And I feel like I don't want that to be a part of my story. I will always want everyone to just love themselves.”

Jenner’s remarks on the season finale launched an overdue conversation about the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s influence on beauty standards in our society – especially regarding young women and girls. 

In 2015 during the “selfie” craze, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that “ lip implant procedures grew by double-digits in every region of the United States,” according to CNBC

That was also the year that Jenner admitted to using temporary lip fillers during an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” 

“I have temporary lip fillers, it's just an insecurity of mine and it's what I wanted to do," she said. "I'm just not ready to talk to reporters about my lips yet because everyone always picks us apart.”

Later that same year, she used that controversy to her advantage and launched Kylie Lip Kits. The launch was a massive success and the products sold out immediately – drawing the attention of women and girls everywhere. 

Jenner’s confession in the season finale was refreshing, and hopefully, her daughter Stormi doesn’t fall into the same trap she did. Women need to continue to embrace their natural beauty, and young girls have no business altering their face and body to appeal to society’s unrealistic beauty standards.
