Report: Kylie Giving Up Lip Injections While Pregnant (Photos) Promo Image

Reality TV star Kylie Jenner, daughter of Caitlyn and Kris Jenner, and sister of Kendall Jenner, is reportedly forgoing her regular lip injections during her pregnancy.

The 20-year-old reality TV star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott, the 25-year-old rapper, reports Page Six.

She first admitted to getting "temporary lip fillers" on a 2015 episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," but her lip doctor is advising against it now that she's pregnant.

"I recommend that women stop getting lip fillers as soon as they learn they are pregnant," said cosmetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Simon Ourian, who has plumped up Kylie's lips for years.

"No one knows the implications of lip fillers on pregnant patients since dermal fillers haven't been tested on pregnant women," he explained. "I would never knowingly administer lip injections to a pregnant patient. In fact, it is my policy not to perform any procedures at all on pregnant women."

But that doesn't mean Kylie will necessarily lose her trademark pout, Ourian noted.

"If a woman receives lip fillers before becoming pregnant, the results can last several months into her pregnancy, especially if she received one of the newer longer-lasting fillers," the doctor said.

Pregnancy alone can have a lip-plumping effect, he noted, because "many women experience naturally increased lip size during pregnancy due to increased levels of estrogen, blood flow, fluids and swelling caused by pregnancy, regardless of whether they ever received lip fillers previously."

Kylie started getting lip injections when she was 16, after a guy she kissed made a comment about her lips, reports Us magazine.

"It has been an insecurity of mine all my life," she said. "This guy I kissed was like, 'Your lips are really small but you're a really good kisser. I didn't think you were gonna be good at kissing.' It was so rude. From then on, I just felt like I saw guys staring at my lips. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me."

In a 2015 interview with The New York Times, Kylie said she started seeing Ourian after being dissatisfied with a previous doctor, the Daily Mail reports.

"He's the best, and he's super natural about it," she said. "I was going to somebody before, and it was just looking crazy. I would recommend that anyone who gets it done go for a filler that lasts only two to four months. It's annoying to keep going back, but you have the option of stopping it."

Kylie's older sister, Khloe Kardashian, is also reportedly pregnant, while Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West confirmed they are having their third child via a surrogate.
