Not long after Kim Kardashian had her butt x-rayed to prove it was real, her mother Kris Jenner had plastic surgery to firm up her 55-year-old face for Kim's wedding. The trendsetting Kardashians are as known for their luscious looks as their flamboyant lifestyles, but has the family gone too far in their pursuit of being flawless?
Here is a breakdown of each Kardashian's quest for perfection:
Kourtney Kardashian: The candid Kourtney openly cops to having breast implant surgery when she was in college. The former B-cupper told Life & Style magazine she regretted her decision at first. "They didn't feel like part of my body," she said. "It made me feel really uncomfortable." Kourtney has since accepted her plastic body parts and was even able to breast feed her baby, Mason. She joked on "Nightline" that "my boobs have like tripled since breastfeeding," perhaps motivating some mammary obsessed moms to forego the formula.
Kim Kardashian: Unlike Kourtney, Kim insists her breasts are real. She told ABC's Cynthia McFadden "Trust me honey, if I take this bra off you will tell me I need to get them done." She also denies getting a nose job. Though she's not against plastic surgery, Kim claims to be a virgin under the knife, and she will only admit to the Botox injections she was seen getting in Season 5 of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
Khloe Kardashian Odom: If Khloe has undergone plastic surgery, she has the secret keeping skills of a spy. Khloe seems determined to look like herself instead of her Barbie doll sisters. She confided to the Middle East edition of Cosmopolitan magazine it is difficult "dealing with the Kardashian body image" and said her big sisters, Kim and Kourtney, feel bad that she is compared to them, telling her "If we were put under the same negative attention that you are, we couldn't handle it."
Kris Jenner: Jenner's recent facelift fuels rumors she is the force behind her offsprings' obsession with physical perfection. Some have accused the "momager" of convincing a confused Kourtney to have her perfectly adequate breasts enlarged when she was only in college. More recently, Jenner jumped on Khloe about her weight and chided her for eating too many cookies, a criminal act in a family that promotes a weight loss product.
Some allege that Jenner is even starting in with her younger daughters with second husband Bruce Jenner, a poster boy for plastic surgery gone wrong. Kylie and Kendall Jenner are already models, but apparently neither is the model of perfection . . . yet. One anonymous source suggests, "[Kylie & Kendall] are agonizing over perceived flaws in their appearances. Kris has been telling them that anything can be corrected with surgery, once they're older."
Maybe someone should tell Mama Kris that the word perfection does not start with the letter "K."
