For those of you who long suspected that Kim Kardashian gets butt injections, it turns out you’re totally right. BUT, it’s not for the reason you think. Kim is known for her ample assets, and she’s not afraid to show ‘em off (take, for example, her debate-sparking pregnancy selfie). Kim’s Internet-breaking backside is often the topic of enhancement speculation, and for a while now people have wondered if her butt was actually all, well… hers. While you’ll be pleased (?) to find out that her booty is all natural, she recently revealed that she does receive regular injections in her bum — and you might actually relate to the reason why.

During a recent live-streaming chat, the 35-year-old mother-of-two addressed the fact that many may have noticed a tell-tale dent in her butt. “One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars [Sinai Hospital]. I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course I get a huge indent on my butt.” Oof! Tough luck.

And, of course, eagle-eyed prying peeps were quick to notice. “There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson. You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumors started: ‘She’s had implants.’” However, that’s not why the “dent” is there — it’s just a result of her changing body.

So why is she getting butt shots if they’re not to give her booty some extra umph? Well, it’s to treat her psoriasis, a skin condition that results in super itchy areas, cracked skin and red patches for some people. Kim is one of those peeps, explaining, “Every few years I get a cortisone shot. I just got one as my psoriasis was so bad in Vegas.”

Consider this butt injection mystery solved!
