Watch: Molly-Mae Hague had lip fillers removed after being unable to recognise her face
Molly-Mae Hague decided to get her lip fillers removed after realising she looked like someone from extreme plastic surgery show Botched.
The Love Island star told her fans on her YouTube channel in October that she was planning to regain her natural appearance, and this journey has so far involved dissolving her fillers and having the composite bonding on her teeth removed.
During a cover interview for U.K. Cosmopolitan magazine, Molly-Mae revealed she decided to reverse all of her cosmetic work after having a wake-up call while taking a selfie.
"I was doing a club appearance and took a selfie," she said. "I remember staring at it and thinking, 'I don't know what I've done to my face.' I went from looking like a teenager to someone on Botched. I've never thought of myself as insecure, but I must have been to do that."
The 22-year-old revealed she started getting lip fillers at the age of 17 and said they need to stop being normalised due to the impact they can have on younger people.
"We need to stop normalising filler, with things like 'Kylie Jenner (surgery) packages'. 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," she confessed. "I sometimes forget how young my followers are, too. I'm often surprised by the fact some of the girls in my DMs (direct messages) even have a phone."
Molly-Mae came runner-up in the 2019 series of Love Island with Tommy Fury, who she is still dating, and now has 5.5 million Instagram followers, and she admitted she has to be "extra careful" about what she posts as she has so many eyes on her.
