Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian at LAX a few days ago, looking sort of morose. I don’t know why – last week was a good week for her. She got a lot of attention for showing off her greased-up and Photoshopped body in an attempt to #BreakTheInternet. Everyone was talking about her. Even people who don’t care about celebrity gossip had an opinion about Kim’s Paper Mag photoshoot. It was the weirdest thing. You’d think the whole world hadn’t seen her naked several times already.
Meanwhile, the Paper Magazine photos have led to a revival of the debate about whether Kim has augmented (or continues to augment) her booty. I’ve actually gone back and forth on the idea – I have no doubt that Kim augments other parts of her body (her lips, her waist, her breasts, her nose) and while I think she’s probably had work done to her booty, I do wonder if it’s really “butt implants,” you know? But the NYDN spoke to some plastic surgeons about Kim’s booty. And Khloe’s Pinocchio Butt, which we all know is made of lies.
Are the Kardashians for real? No, really. The Sisters Kardashian — Kim with her baby-oil-enhanced appearance in Paper magazine this week and Khloe with her shelf-like posterior, courtesy of trainer Gunnar Peterson — have revived debate about whether those killer kurves are natural or simply the perfect marriage of Photoshop and fat-filled syringes. To get to the bottom of it all, we asked the experts.
“Kim has had enhancement for sure,” says Dr. Basil Pakeman, who performs Brazilian butt lifts at Manhattan Surgical Care on the Upper East Side. Packman, who has not worked on either Kardashian sister, said he knows that baby got fake back because he noticed a “little dot” near the top of her butt. “That’s one of the incision points we use to inject fat during procedures,” he says.
Those procedures, which involve liposuction on the stomach, hips, thighs and back followed by fat injections on the top, center and bottom of the buttocks, have been growing in popularity since Jennifer Lopez first shimmied in her “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” video in 2000. It caused a revolution. A curvy body — especially one with a big butt — became more popular than the heroin-chic anorexic look of a decade earlier. But Kim and Khloe have taken the bootylicious craze to a cartoonish level.
“Certainly, the Paper magazine images do not look real,” says Dr. Victoria Karlinsky, chief cosmetic surgeon at New Look New Life on the Upper West Side. “She looks incredibly thin in the waist and has absolutely no body fat. I can’t imagine anyone having enough body fat to create something like that.”
Paper’s creative director, Mickey Boardman, told Us Weekly that the photos were doctored slightly, but maintained that no extra meat was added to Kardashian’s bones. Others are unconvinced.
Karlinsky adds that Khloe, who already has an accentuated lumbar spine that curves nicely, would have no trouble filling out her already curvaceous behind.
“When somebody [like Khloe] has that natural ‘C’ curve, it’s easy to augment,” says Karlinsky, adding that the work was “beautifully done.”
Like Karlinsky, many professionals are calling out the magazine cover shot for being heavily distorted using Photoshop.
“Not sure what screams #photoshop more, the 12-inch waist, or the solid color background?” tweeted Dr. Matthew Schulman, a New York plastic surgeon who performs butt lifts.

Yeah, I like that plastic surgeons just take it as a given that Khloe has gotten booty work done. Because it really is THAT obvious. As for Kim… yeah, probably. I think she had a naturally big butt, but as her body changed over the years, she’s gotten fat sucked out of her waist and put into her rear. Is that how they do it? Meh.
Oh, and Kim posted a bunch of photos of North out with her “aunties” at the zoo. One of the aunties is Lorraine Schwartz. Apparently, North had her first hot chocolate and she smiled a real smile at all of the fishies.
