The stunning stars who looked better after REVERSING cosmetic surgery by draining lips and shrinking boobs
BREAST implants, Botox and lip fillers are rife amongst the rich and famous.
Keeping a flawless Instagram aesthetic means many stars go under the knife – and while some love the results, others wish they’d never started.
While it may be a rarity, there are celebrities reversing their cosmetic transformations after years of repeated procedures, pursuing and championing natural beauty for the first time in years.
Last week we saw Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague reveal her natural lips for the first time since her teens after having her lip fillers dissolved, leaving them "half the size".
The 21-year-old took to Instagram to share her new look, saying she was “shocked” but “happy” she made the brave decision to reverse the work she’d had done to get the Love Island look.
“Every time I turn my front camera on I'm like, 'Oh my gosh.' I forget that my lips are literally half the size,” she told her 4.9million followers. “I think all the swelling has gone now, pretty much.”
“I'm weirdly happy about it. I don't know how to feel – I've gone back to 15-year-old me again,” she added in another ‘lip-update’ video.
Molly-Mae revealed earlier this year she was planning to pursue natural beauty after “truly regretting” being sucked into the lip-filler craze at the age of 18.
Fans immediately flooded social media to support her decision, with many saying they preferred her natural lips and encouraging her surgery reversal.
“She looks so much better,” wrote one fan on Twitter, with another agreeing: “Molly-Mae looks so good without the lip filler. Still as gorgeous as before.”
The British influencer isn’t the only star to have had plastic surgery reversed for good, however.
Many others including Kylie Jenner, Chrissy Tiegan and fellow Love Islander Olivia Atwood have returned to natural beauty.
'I just didn't feel desirable'
Keeping Up with The Kardashians star Kylie Jenner became renowned for her plumped-up lips, which became the face of her Kylie Cosmetics make-up empire.
But following years of filler injections, the 23-year-old billionaire told fans in 2018 she had taken the decision to remove all her fillers, posting a photo of her natural lips.
Noticing how different the reality star looked, a fan commented: "She looks like the old Kylie here idk why" – and Kylie responded: "I got rid of all my filler."
Kylie admitted she had been insecure about the size of her lips since her teens, revealing she had been getting the injections since she was 17 in secret to not disappoint her parents or be a bad influence on fans.
She told viewers of her show Life Of Kylie: “It was one of my first kisses and a guy was like: ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips’. I took that really hard.
“I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty.
"I would over-line my lips with the lip liner to create the illusion of bigger lips and then, finally, I was like ‘this lip liner isn't doing it’ and ended up getting my lips done.”
After becoming mum to Stormi, two, it was revealed Kylie had a change of heart – having let her fillers naturally dissolve over time – and decided to have them removed completely.
Kylie was papped on a day out in Paris sporting a much smaller, more natural pout just weeks after the announcement – but the transformation didn’t last long.
Three months after the removal, Jenner tagged a Beverly Hills clinic in an Instagram selfie, thanking them for the “touch up” on her lips, and returning to her iconic look.
Reality TV star Olivia Atwood proudly showed off her “banging” new boobs after having her breast implants reduced last year, a decade after having them put in.
The former Love Island contestant downsized her breasts because the implants were causing her to have backache, while also restricting her wardrobe choices.
Admitting it was a "rough" ride with a difficult five-day recovery from surgery, influencer Olivia insisted the removal was a necessity for her to be happier in her body.
The 29-year-old told Heat magazine that she was overjoyed by her new look, and proudly showed off her noticeably smaller chest in a skimpy swimming costume.
“I had a downsize… I’d had those implants since I was 19. They were really heavy and too big for my body, so I was starting to get some really bad aching,” Olivia said.
“I can’t wait to be able to wear more clothes now without my boobs falling out, putting people off their dinner,” she jokingly added. “I look more like I should in clothes now.”
Filler dissolved TWICE
Former TOWIE star Megan McKenna revealed she had dissolved her lip filler last November before performing on The X Factor: Celebrity to pursue a serious career in music.
Wanting to inspire other women to return to their natural beauty, the 28-year-old urged fans that the dissolving procedure was one of “the best choices” she had ever made.
She also explained that after losing sight of what a "normal" face looked like, that she had at last “accepted” her more natural appearance for what it was.
“I became obsessed with my lips,” Megan revealed. “I’d take a photo of myself and if I didn’t think they looked big enough, I’d make them bigger with an editing app.
“I spent three years pumping it in, pumping it in, thinking: ‘They’re not big enough, let’s get some more’. I thought I’d look ugly without them.”
The turning point came when the star sang at the opening of a Michael Bublé concert in Hyde Park in 2018 – which should have been the highlight of her career – that saw her lips hit the headlines.
“Every headline the next day was about me and my big lips,” she said. “I’d left my job on TOWIE to really smash this and so to have everything about my lips was upsetting. I want people to be talking about my voice.
“I realised I was never going to be taken seriously while I had fillers, so I decided they had to go. I had so much in there. I didn’t just have one lot of dissolvent, I had to have two!
I was trying to mould myself into something I wasn’t.
“I thought no one was going to like me without them but after the second week, I saw myself and thought: ‘Hold on, I look all right.’ I think I’d lost sight of what a normal face looked like.
"I was trying to mould myself into something I wasn’t. And now I think it looks ridiculous. I know I look better natural and I will never go down that route again. It’s just not nice.”
'I'm getting my boobs out'
Model Chrissy Teigen went under the knife earlier this year to have her breast implants removed, 14 years after undergoing breast enhancement surgery for the first time.
The 34-year-old, who is no stranger to posing in swimwear, said she had the surgery at 20 years old to look more desirable when posing for photos lying on her back.
Taking to Instagram in May, Chrissy told her 32.9million followers that she was getting a COVID test and would soon undergo surgery, urging fans “not to worry” about her.
“I’m getting my boobs out,” she wrote. “They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it.
"I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me! I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat.”
Weeks later, Chrissy returned to social media to share the results – revealing her recovery was going “so well” in response to an influx of messages asking questions about her procedure.
“I feel good, so don't worry about me. And here's my new boob. Yay!" she joked, while filming her smaller chest at discreet angles.
Face paralysed by Botox
Actress Nicole Kidman revealed she’d had Botox and would never again after it left her unable to move her face properly, causing speculation she was a regular to cosmetic surgery.
In 2013, NW magazine asked a professional to give their expert opinion of the matter, and the surgeon ruled that Nicole “appeared to have had too much filler in her lips and cheeks and Botox in her forehead.”
Feeling stung and addressing the rumours head on, the now 53-year-old admitted she had tried Botox but insisted she is now “completely natural”.
"I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again,” Nicole told La Repubblica in response to questions about her remarkably still face.
“No surgery for me," she added, insisting that she now uses sunscreen to ensure her face remains wrinkle free and healthy.
“I don't smoke and I take care of myself, and I am proud to say that," Nicole said. “[But] anyone can do anything they want to themselves – I don’t judge.”
Secret boob job reversed
Singer and fashion designer Victoria Beckham publicly denied having breast implants for years – that was until she had them removed – admitting they had been there but were now “gone”.
The Spice Girl is thought to have had the surgery in 1999 after the birth of her eldest son Brooklyn, taking her from a 34A to a 34DD.
Claiming that her enhanced bust was thanks to push up bras, at the time Posh told the world she was “completely natural, except for my fingernails”.
But in 2011, after the birth of daughter Harper, nine, the mum-of-four revealed in an interview with Allure that the secret implants had already been taken out, saying: “I don't have them anymore. I think I may have purchased them.”
“No torpedo bazookas, either. Gone,” she later told Vogue, before quickly changing the subject.
Addicted to plastic surgery
Best known for her appearance in The Only Way Is Essex, Amy Childs had her first breast enhancement surgery at 18 before her TV career kicked off three years later.
Part of the original TOWIE cast, the mum-of-two quickly became addicted to enhancements, and found down a rabbit hole of plastic surgery including lip fillers.
Having surgery to remove the dodgy implants, Amy now believes that cosmetic surgery shouldn’t be allowed for those under 25, and wishes she could tell her younger self not to “mess” with her face and body.
“I wish I’d never done it,” she explained, reflecting back on her decision to go from a 32A to a 32D when she was a teenager following years of insecurity about her chest.
Five years on, she increased her breast size yet again to an F cup, but it was a disaster from the start and the reality star suffered from back pain after only six months.
To make things worse, she was hospitalised for a week when one of the implants ruptured, needing to have the fluid drained out of her. Just four weeks later, the other implant “flipped over” inside her body.
It wasn’t until Amy had children Polly, two, and Ritchie, one, that the urgency to have the implants removed increased, with them making it impossible to go about her daily life.
“They were massive – they were an absolute catastrophe," she explained. "I knew I wanted them out."
Her skin had sadly stretched so much from the previous implants that Amy would have to have smaller implants to retain a natural breast shape, something which she described as “devastating”.
The 30-year-old had also developed an addiction to lip fillers and around the same time, decided she needed to stop after her parents told her she “looked like a freak”.
“With filler especially you think it’s going to make you look perfect, it actually doesn't,” she added. “It makes you look old.
“[My parents] told me I was looking like a freak. I looked in the mirror and thought 'I don't like this anymore – I don't want these big lips’.”
It wasn’t that simple, and when Amy had the filler removed she sadly discovered that she had burst blood vessels from repeated use and required corrective treatment from a specialist.
She said: “He told me that basically I still had filler in my lips which he couldn’t get out. It means that even though I haven’t had filler for three years it still looks like I have it in and my lips are unlikely ever to go back to their natural shape.
Insisting that surgery isn’t always the best option, she concluded: “If I could speak to 20-year-old Amy I would spell it out – because if she knew what was going to happen she wouldn’t have had anything done at all.”
It appears that her other celebrity counterparts are beginning to agree, natural is best.
