In April, the socialite reportedly spoke about going under the knife four years ago. She also claimed that she had first talked about it in June 2021. During an interview with Robin Roberts for an ABC special on ‘The Kardashians’, she said: “My whole life I would say - I've always wanted my nose done, forever. But it's in the middle of your face and it's scary to think about. But I finally got the courage, and I did it, and I love it.”

Before this, in June last year, she told Andy Cohen, “Everyone says, ‘Oh my gosh, she's had her third face transplant.’ But I've had one nose job, [with] Dr Raj Kanodia,” before adding: “You're the first person in an interview that's ever asked me about my nose. I've done, sure, injections - not really Botox. I've responded horribly to Botox.”

Not just that, in May 2022, Khloe fired back at the critics who always accuse her of “12 face transplants”. She spoke on the Dear Media podcast ‘Not Skinny But Not Fat with Amanda Hirsch’: “It did use to bother me when people were [saying] I've had 12 face transplants. I'm like, ‘Oh, my God, I have?’ I was like, ‘That's crazy.’ It didn't bother me. It offended me. I just couldn't figure out why people thought that.”

Who is Dr Raj Kanodia?

Dr Raj Kanodia is “one of the leading Board Certified Surgeons specializing in Closed Rhinoplasty and Facial Rejuvenation,” according to his website. The site adds that “his artistic ability to enhance facial harmony and preserve youthful contours has earned him notable respect among other surgeons. He is trusted with many of Hollywood’s most famous faces and has been featured on plastic surgeon and celebrity shows such as Dr 90210, E!, and many more. The doctor works with clientele from around the world, including performing artists, fashion models, politicians, other surgeons, executives, and Royalty.”

Enigma Magazine has also interviewed Dr Kanodia and stated that he has done more than 9,000 rhinoplasty surgeries in over thirty years. Explaining how his rhinoplasty technique is unique, the doctor said: “My rhinoplasty technique is unique because we do everything from inside the nostril. That is why it’s called ‘closed finesse rhinoplasty.’ 95 percent of doctors around the world perform what are called open rhinoplasty procedures, whereby they cut at the bottom of the nose, then peel the whole nose, and restructure the anatomy that is close to skin; thus, everybody ends up with a scar at the bottom of the nose.”

He added: “It’s very invasive, very reconstructive, and the nose does not look like the person at all. Compared to my procedure, open rhinoplasty requires doctors to look at the anatomy structure and then stitch the nose, leaving it exposed for about five hours or more and the nose takes up to three to four weeks to heal. On the other hand, I finish the nose surgery in about an hour, and my noses heal in six days. On the sixth day, I remove the bandage and my patient can immediately go out in public for dinner or work.”
