KIM Kardashian has hit back at critics who claim plastic surgery is the reason for recent changes in her appearance.
Fans have noticed drastic changes in the Hulu star’s looks, including an increasingly plump pout, a seemingly slimmer nose, and a continually shrinking frame.

Kim, 42, responded to the plastic surgery speculation in a subtle, yet effective, way.
She shared a side-by-side photo of herself when she was 14 with one of her more recently.
In both photos she appears to be making the same face – she is smiling with her face slightly turned to one side and her mouth open wide.
The TV star has a tiny strand of hair sticking out from the style she’s rocking in each pic.
The first photo showed a young Kim sporting a short bob with a sweet flower clip in her hair.
She appeared to have on a white T-shirt and a dainty gold choker necklace.
In the other snap, Kim is rocking blonde hair in a sleek bun with strands pulled out in the front.
She has on a bright pink dress, which she wore to the 2022 Baby2Baby Gala and a face full of makeup.
The Kardashians star added a simple caption, writing: “Lol.”
Rumors have been rampant about Kim going under the knife.
Recently, the reality star shared a TikTok video that got fans buzzing.
The clip was shared to Kim and her daughter North‘s shared account on Friday.
In it, the mother-daughter duo made their own custom cups of noodles.
After picking out what she wanted in them, nine-year-old North spun the wheel, on which her noodles were sitting.
When they had received their cup of noodles in a bag, they showed them off to the camera.
North waved hers in front of it and Kim held hers up.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum took a video of them holding up their food, at which point when fans noticed how different the California native looked.
She hid her eyes behind sunglasses, but some fans said her lips looked plumper and her nose appeared smaller.
Fans and critics alike took to Reddit to comment on the change.
“Kim’s nose and lips look different in this?” one person asked at the time.
“Yikes,” wrote one user as another said: “It’s for sure new.”
Another person pointed out that she constantly uses filters so maybe that’s what others were seeing.
The plastic surgery rumors gained traction back in February when fans noticed Kim’s face looking slightly little different.
She was photographed at a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show in Italy.
Several snaps from the trip showed the star sporting a skintight leather snake-skinned dress at the event,
Fans paired them next to older photos, discussing the differences.
Several commenters suggested that the side-by-side pictures were proof that the mom-of-four secretly underwent major plastic surgery.
One commenter speculated at the time: “She’s lost a crazy amount of weight recently, which can ‘age’ you as fat in the face can give a more youthful appearance. My guess is she got a bit of a sallow look from the dramatic weight loss and overcorrected with fillers.”
