    She recently opened up to the Sunday Times explaining that she initially got the fillers because she was "chasing" the youthfulness she had years prior but regrets the decision. "There was a time when you go, 'Oh, I'm changing. I'm looking older.' And I tried to chase that [youthfulness] for years," she added. "And I didn't realize that, oh shit, I'm actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now."

Then, in her spinoff series, Life With Kylie, she explained her reasoning for getting filler in the first place: "I have really small lips, and it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.’ But I took that really hard.”

She said, "Making the empowering choice to remove my implants has been a 50/50 physical and mental process that words can't describe. (And the truth is, It hasn't been smooth or easy.) But taking that leap towards honoring my body + soul, allowed so much to fall away and truly heal. It really is more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!!"

She added, "Within hours after surgery this is what I noticed — my face had more color and less dark circles, my face started producing oil again, I could take a 30% deeper breath into my chest already, and I had so much energy when I woke up (and surgery was at 2:30 p.m.)."
