The Kardashians have been at the center of plastic surgery rumors for years, and only a few members of the iconic family have admitted to going under the knife, including Khloe Kardashian.
Apparently, the reality star is still close to her plastic surgeon, as he wished a happy 38th birthday on social media. “Happy birthday @KhloeKardashian wishing you another hundred years of health, happiness and success,” Dr. Raj Kanodia wrote on his Instagram Story on Monday.
How Khloe Responded To Her Doctor’s Shout-Out
The Kardashians star seems to be on good terms with the doctor, as she re-shared his birthday message on her own story. “Thank you for the perfect nose,” she wrote.
Khloe has been the subject of fierce plastic surgery rumors for years. Fans have speculated she’s had a range of procedures done, from a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction, and lip filler. The only procedure Khloe has been open about is her nose job, which was performed by Dr. Kanodia. She first discussed the procedure on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion last year.
“For me, everyone says, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s had her third face transplant,’” she told host Andy Cohen. “But I’ve had one nose job — Dr. Raj Kinodia — and everyone gets so upset, like, ‘Why don’t I talk about it?’”
Khloe denied trying to keep the procedure a secret, saying, “No one’s ever asked me.” She added, “You’re the first person in an interview that’s ever asked me about my nose.” During the same interview, Khloe added that she’s also had facial fillers. “I’ve done, sure, injections — not really Botox. I’ve responded horribly to Botox.”
In April, Khloe revealed that she has anxiety over posting to social media due to the criticism and speculation she’s received for her appearance throughout the years. “[I have] anxiety to post photos on Instagram,” she said in an episode of The Kardashians. “Even when I barely did retouching, I’m so afraid to post it, because people are gonna say I did.”
Of her daughter’s struggles, Kris Jenner said, “I think any time that you’re in the public eye, it just opens you up for scrutiny and criticism about every little thing. And I think with Khloé she does internalize that.”
Khloe shared similar sentiment in May when she appeared on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, admitting she finds it offensive when people speculate about whether she’s had work. “It didn’t bother me. It offended me. I just couldn’t figure out why people thought that,” she said in reference to allegations she got a “face transplant.”
