Kris Jenner is used to fans talking about the things that come out of her mouth, but now they’re abuzz about the state of her actual mouth! During the July 1 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris’ top lip swelled up to five times its normal size during a family vacation in the Dominican Republic.
Though Kris says she suffered a food allergy, fans were quick to speculate that the Kardashian matriarch was having a bad reaction to cosmetic fillers, similar to Kim Kardashian’s allergic reaction to Botox in 2010.
“Kris’ reaction could absolutely be from a lip injection,” triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ramtin Kassir, EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “The gel injectables like Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm hold 1000x their weight in water so there’s swelling after the injection, but then it goes down.”
“Although rare, she could be suffering from an allergy to a substance in lip filler,” explains plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Youn. “Some surgeons add anesthetics to their lip plumbers, which could have additives or preservatives that can create an allergic reaction.”
Although Kris could simply be having a response to the exotic cuisine she’s enjoying in the Dominican Republic, it is worth noting that she’s only experiencing the adverse reaction on one portion of her mouth. “I suppose it could be an allergic reaction, but usually in those instances the bottom lip and often times the tongue also get swollen,” argues Dr. Kassir.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Renato Calabria agrees, adding, “It’s definetly not a food allergy — there is no food allergy that affects selectively one or the other lip! It is an abnormal swelling that could be caused by a large amount of the filler, a hematoma after the injection or just an allergic reaction to the filler itself.” To treat the swelling, he recommends cortisone and lots of ice.
The 56-year-old momager went under the knife before Kim’s lavish wedding to Kris Humphries and documented before and after footage for her reality show. “She looks amazing. They say you are supposed to have a lot of swelling for a week or so after, but I didn’t notice!” Khloe Kardashian previously told the New York Daily News.
