Molly Mae-Hague

Love Island star Molly Mae Hague has revealed she is dissolving her fillers and going for a more natural look.

The 22-year-old said she was left wondering what she had done to her face after getting cosmetic surgery, and said we should stop "normalising filler".

The beauty told Cosmopolitan that she first got lip fillers when she was 17.

"I was doing a club appearance and took a selfie. I remember staring at it and thinking, 'I don't know what I've done to my face'," she reflects.

The TV star said she went from "looking like a teenager" to "someone on Botched" - a show dedicated to extreme plastic surgery.

Molly-Mae added: "I've never thought of myself as insecure, but I must have been to do that.

"I was 17 when I first got my lips done, and it scares me to think that if I have a daughter in 10 years' time, what it might be like for her.

"We need to stop normalising filler, with things like 'Kylie Jenner [surgery] packages."

Molly-Mae is the latest in a long list of celebrities who regret aesthetic procedures.

Katie Price opened up about her plastic surgery regrets and revealed her boobs looked 'deformed' after she went under the knife for a breast enlargement in Turkey.

The 43-year-old former glamour model was forced to have an emergency procedure with her usual surgeon in Belgium to get her boobs corrected after the surgery went wrong.

Also known as Jordan, in the past Katie has had 12 boob jobs, two facelifts, Botox, cheek and lip fillers, tattooed eyebrows and a nose job. Her most recent surgery was to correct the botched procedure.

"I was having medical problems with a job that I had done in Turkey," said Katie, who got her first boob job in 1995 for free. "So I had to go back to BeClinic with Dr Frank, who has done all my other procedures.

"I don't know why I went to Turkey. You get offered these things and I took advantage of it and that's because I wasn't in a good place. It's the worst thing I did. My boobs looked deformed.

"I went back to Frank and I'll never go anywhere else again."

Former Bond girl Britt Ekland believes she ruined her face with plastic surgery.

The 78-year-old Swede said she had plastic surgery when she was in her fifties, and described her lip augmentation specifically as the "biggest mistake of [her] life."

"It destroyed my looks and ruined my face," she said. Britt believes her plastic surgeon used her as an "experiment."

"Everyone has the right to choose," Ekland said of the decision to get plastic surgery. "[I] wouldn't consider it again. I have no desire to look any different than I am."

JESSICA SIMPSON

Jessica Simpson announced in 2006 that she hated her lip injections.

"I had that Restylane stuff," says the now 40-year-old. "It looked fake to me. I didn't like that. But…it went away in, like, four months. My lips are back to what they were. Thank God!"

TORI SPELLING

Back in 2011 Tori Spelling said she regretted getting breast implants.

"I got my boobs done in my early twenties and if I had known it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I would never had had them done," said the 48-year-old Beverly Hills 90201 star and mother-of-five.

Chrissy Teigen revealed recently that she was undergoing surgery to have her breast implants removed.

The 35-year-old model said her implants "have been great" to her but that she ultimately wanted to be comfortable in her own skin.

Chrissy had breast implants when she was 20.

"You can't set these expectations for people that everything is perfect," Chrissy pointed out. "Everyone filters their sh*t, edits or Facetunes so you forget what normal faces or bodies look like. It's not fair and it makes you jealous of other people's bodies. It's lying to people by omission.

"But also, while you want to teach your kids to be comfortable in their own skin, you want to tell them everything you can and let them decide."

SHARON OSBOURNE

Sharon Osbourne admitted to being on her "third face" in 2016, though she hasn't always liked what she had done.

"And in a lot of shots, my face looks plastic and at certain angles, I was like, 'Oh, dear. Oh, I should never have done that. Oh, that's a bad one'," said the 68-year-old. "So I'm like, 'No more. No more abuse'."

After her role in Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Grey famously went under the knife for a nose job.

But she complained that it affected her getting other roles.

"I went into the operating room a celebrity and came out anonymous," the 61-year-old said in 2012. "It was the nose job from hell. I'll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognises because of a nose job."

Friends star Courtney Cox said doctors suggested she get fillers every now and then, which led to layers upon layers of cosmetic enhancements that she didn't like.

"I've had all my fillers dissolved. I'm as natural as I can be," said the 56-year-old. "I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do," she said.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN

It's no secret Khloé Kardashian has undergone plastic surgery, but she wasn't entirely happy with her face fillers.

She had to get them dissolved because the 36-year-old said they made her look "crazy".

Actor Mickey Rourke underwent facial cosmetic procedures to correct damage he sustained from his boxing career. "Most of it was to mend the mess of my face because of the boxing, but I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together," the 68-year-old said in 2009.

KIM KARDASHIAN

Kim Kardashian regretted getting Botox on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

"On the show you saw I had some bruising around my eyes after the procedure, which is totally natural, but because I hadn't looked into the side effects, I freaked out," the 40-year-old once admitted. "Botox just wasn't necessary for me at this age."

CAMERON DIAZ

Cameron Diaz tried Botox once but said she would never do it again.

"It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, 'No, I don't want to [be] like [that]'… I'd rather see my face aging than a face that doesn't belong to me at all," the 48-year-old in 2014.

Kylie Jenner is known for her plump lips, but the entrepreneur said she regrets some of her lip injections.

"Well, I definitely made my lips a little too big at one point," the 23-year-old told sister Kim in a chat.

"I got excited and felt like I needed to do a lot. And then you guys were like, 'Kylie, you need to chill.'

"And then I had to go back and have it fixed, and it was a crazy process. Thank God I didn't end up on Botched."

TARA REID

Tara Reid underwent several botched surgeries in 2004, forcing her to reverse the work in 2007.

"My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing," said the 45-year-old.

"I had a hernia, this huge bump next to my belly button. As a result, I couldn't wear a bikini. I lost a lot of work."
