Kim admitted that being an Armenian woman, she's obsessed with Laser Hair Removal
. She lasered off her baby hair, including her hairy neck. She recalls the trauma of breaking out with all the hair on her forehead, so back in those high school days, she would wax it off with little laser hair removal.

Kim has openly denied about having any surgeries done for silicone implants on her bum to enhance it. According to her, the credit for her bootyliciousness goes to pregnancy weight and psoriasis treatment.

Judging from the before and after pictures, you can't deny that the shape has a different form. Although her x-rays prove that she didn't have silicone implants, it is rumored that she went through a different procedure called Brazilian butt lift
, a technique of injecting one's own fat from unwanted areas such as abdomen, love handles into the butt. And this wont show in x-rays as its normal fat!3. Nose job/Rhinoplasty
"Everyone always thinks I've had my nose done or my lips done or just anything to my face like besides Botox, which to me isn't plastic surgery. People always say I've had a nose job and they'll use before and after pictures but the after picture is really taken before. It's so funny, it just depends on how your nose is contoured,
" she told Harper's Bazaar in 2012.
People have a different opinion on her nose & don't believe Kim when she claims that only make-up contouring achieved the look. They speculate that she most likely had an open septorhinoplasty as it looks much slimmer in her current pictures.4. Pregnancy lips

Dr. Tabasum Mir, a New-York based celebrity dermatologist estimated Kim's post baby plastic surgery to be about $100,000. In her interview with bikinidotcom, she assumed Kim went through liposuction, tummy tuck, cellulite reductions, and stretch marks reduction through laser to get her body back after pregnancy.
Apparently, a lot of celebrities go into hiding post pregnancy to go through these methods, according to Dr. Mir.
However, Kim was furious with these rumors and slammed back saying it was her hard work at the gym and healthy eating following Atkins 40 diet that she was able to lose about 70 lbs!
Kim doesn't think Botox is counted as plastic surgery, according to her interview with Harper Baazar in 2012. She has admitted to have Botox done as far as 2010 and according to Dr. Anthony Youn in Radar Online, she must've used Botox to smooth her forehead and her frown lines.
