The Kardashian effect – the famous family’s huge influence on Cosmetic Surgery trends

19 November 2015

Like them or loath them, the influence of the Kardashians is unavoidable at the moment – particularly when it comes to beauty. With millions of fans striving to emulate the look of the famous sisters, Cosmetic Surgeons have reported an unprecedented spike in enquiries from patients inspired by the Kardashian’s infamous curves.

In fact, there’s been a huge 73% year-on-year increase in the number of patients requesting Kardashian-esque features from Cosmetic Surgery and Treatments. One Cosmetic Surgeon thinks this is largely down to the very open way the reality TV stars discuss the subject.

“It’s interesting to see the influence these stars have on Brits today, we’ve never known anything like it – the Kardashian family have done more for Cosmetic Surgery than anyone previously… They openly talk about treatments, are filmed whilst having procedures and are unashamedly obsessed with looking their best at all times.”

Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian have both talked honestly about having breast implants – Kris was even filmed having her implants replaced for an episode of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’.

But it is Kim Kardashian’s generous derrière that thousands of patients are looking to replicate. Kim fervently denies having butt implants, never-the-less her curvy figure has prompted a significant increase in the number of women enquiring about Butt Lift surgery. 

Youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, also sparked a frenzy of interest in Dermal Fillers when – after much speculation – she admitted to using Juvèrderm injections to plump her lips.  One Cosmetic Clinic saw a dramatic 700% increase in patient enquiries the same day as Kylie’s statement. The Surgeon continues, “No one could have predicted the effect Kylie would have on the world-wide Lip Filler market, undoubtedly she is the industry’s new poster girl for the treatment.”
