Kylie Jenner says she regrets getting br@ast implants at 19: ‘Wish I never got them done’

Beauty is skin deep, and Kylie Jenner is embracing her own now. The reality-television star opened up about her past cosmetic work in Thursday’s episode of “The Kardashians,” revealing she “got my breasts done” when she was 19, shortly before giving birth to daughter Stormi. “I just wish I never got them done to begin with,” Jenner told friend Anastasia Karanikolaou. “(I) would recommend anyone who is thinking about it to wait until after children.” Jenner further reflected on how motherhood has affected her views on plastic surgery. “I have a daughter too. I would be heartbroken if she wanted to get her body done at 19,” Jenner said. “I want to be the best mom and best example for her. I wish I could be her and do it all differently, ‘cause I wouldn’t touch anything.” Earlier in the season of their Hulu reality show, Jenner and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian discussed the impact of beauty standards and their experiences with body image. “I just feel like we have a huge influence,” said Jenner, acknowledging she had gotten fillers in the past. “What are we doing with our power? I just see so many young girls on the internet now fully editing (photos of themselves). I went through that stage too, and I feel like I’m in a better place, but other people can instill insecurities in you.” Body image standards existed before the Kardashians, and they’ll exist after. But experts say the images they present to the world have a strong impact on how others feel they should look. “Having one of the biggest influencers in the world embrace and promote a new standard about body diversity is an important step to real structural change,” University of Houston sociology professor Samantha Kwan previously told USA TODAY. “If beauty standards are in part created by mass media, these ideals can shift if prominent influencers in mass media sincerely question narrow beauty ideals, embrace body diversity, and celebrate women as entire beings beyond just their looks.”
