THE Kardashians have been using lip filler for years after inheriting their mom's narrow smile, a plastic surgeon has said.
And he claims most of the Hulu star's lips are "maxed out" with the substance, while the skin around Khloe's mouth "looks full."
As Hollywood trailblazers, the Kardashians are famed for tweaking their looks and presenting new ones to their fans online.
Previously, a few members of the family have come clean about their pricy nips and tucks.
These have included slimming down noses, getting bigger boobs, and maintaining youthful glows.
But it's the Kardashians' noticeably boosted lips that have continued to be an enigma.
Only one of them has ever admitted to injecting lip filler, while others have flatly denied any use.
Lip fillers are a non-invasive cosmetic procedure in which dermal fillers are syringed into the tissue around the mouth to plump up the lips.
The technique is usually carried out by plastic surgeons like Dr. Richard Westreich.
In an exclusive interview, Dr. Richard Westreich told The U.S. Sun what stage the Kardashian/Jenners are at in their secretive lip-enhancing journey.

IT'S NOT ME
Previously, matriarch Kris Jenner has said she didn't approve of her daughter Kylie's decision to get lip fillers when she was 17.
But despite Kris changing her own lip shape over time, the 67-year-old businesswoman has never admitted to getting filler herself.
"Kris Jenner has got naturally thin lips, but she hasn't had a ton of filler injected into them," says Dr. Westreich.
"I don't think she has had more than one syringe.
"She's probably the most conservative out of the whole family.
"Her daughters have inherited her thin top lip and that kind of gummy smile.
"But Kris has a fuller lower lip and they've mostly inherited that as well."
IT'S NOT ME, EITHER
Kourtney Kardashian, 43, has always denied having any plastic surgery.
In 2019 the mom of three took to Instagram after one of her fans said: “No makeup, just fillers,” before adding a crying-laughing emoji.
At the time, Kourtney replied: “I don't do fillers, but I love this compliment.”
In 2022, the Poosh founder also filmed herself getting her face “lifted and contoured” but only via a simple beauty treatment.
"Kourtney’s lips don't look huge and are probably carrying two syringes of filler," says Dr. Westreich.
"She had a gummy smile like her mom before, and so has added a lot of volume to her upper lip.
"She looks more natural but does have a thinner top lip than Kim."
I'D NEVER EVER
Over the years, Kim Kardashian’s increasingly puffed-up pout baffled her fans and followers.
But in 2022, the 42-year-old mom continued to deny she'd ever used lip filler to get her larger-than-life lip look.
When Allure magazine asked the Skims founder if she’d had lip filler or cheek filler, she replied: “No filler. Never filled either one, ever.”
"Kim’s holding four syringes of filler currently which would have cost her around $4000," explains Dr. Westreich.
"Most of it has been injected into her upper lip as well.
"This means the upper lip will either be equal to or a bit bigger than the lower lip.
"I don't think Kim’s spending much to maintain her lips anymore.
"Like Kylie, she has probably built the lip filler up over time and started with around two or three syringes."
IT COULD BE ME
Khloe Kardashian, 38, has never admitted to specifically getting lip filler despite her pout looking much bigger over the years.
The mom of two did, however, say she'd had a nose job and Botox during a 2021 KUWTK reunion episode.
Khloe also said she'd had fillers injected in her "face" in 2016, before getting them dissolved.
"Khloe has had the most filler injected as you can see that the skin around the mouth is completely full," says Dr. Westreich.
"She's carrying closer to four syringes of lip filler and based on how swollen it all looks, it's probably been done multiple times.
"I'd dissolve them because she's got the maximum.
"Her lip starts to puff out from the face right at the edge of the lip.
"Khloe's lips are taking off a third of the way up her upper lip, but some people love monstrous lips.
"Her lips aren't going to explode even though they look like they might."
I DIDN'T DO IT
Kendall Jenner’s fans and followers questioned whether her lips were enhanced in 2022 after photos of her swollen mouth emerged online.
“She looks like a cartoon character,” one remarked at the time
“These are nuts,” read another in a tweet, which was followed by: “That lip liner isn't helping things.”
In 2017, the 27-year-old catwalk star responded to speculation about her changing face.
"It's all so exhausting. As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed? It doesn't even make sense," she said. "It's crazy because sometimes I feel like people just want me to lose."
"Kendall has mostly had her upper lip injected and there’s some on the bottom," adds Dr. Westreich.
"She's probably carrying one or one and a half syringes which are a little less than the others, but it's there.
"They all love to put their lip liner outside their lips, so this makes the lips look even bigger."
IT WAS ME
Kylie Jenner, 24, admitted to getting lip fillers in 2015 after initially claiming she only used makeup to make her lips look larger.
However, in 2018 the cosmetic brand founder removed her lip filler after giving birth, only to get her lips reinjected.
"It has taken Kylie a lot of work to get these lips," says Dr. Westreich
"They were thin before and now she's got lips and is probably carrying three syringes.
"But with lips that thin, you have to do a very slow build to get the lips to stretch and expand over time.
"Kylie, Kim, and Khloe are all maxed out with filler.
"But while they're carrying three or four syringes right now, it doesn't mean they've only done that ever.

"Some of these photos show additional liner to accentuate, but even without that, you can tell the fullness, especially when they smile.
"You can also reach a point when you've been doing lip filler for a couple of years, and you don't need it after that for a couple more."
