Molly Mae opens up about why she really ditched fillers

Love Island 2019 runner-up Molly-Mae Hague has revealed the moment she realized she’d taken fillers too far.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Molly Mae admitted:

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.' 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.

She continued:

We need to stop normalising filler, with things like 'Kylie Jenner 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. I sometimes forget how young my followers are, too. I'm often surprised by the fact some of the girls in my DMs even have a phone.’

Molly-Mae regrets fillers

Molly-Mae has previously been open about the fact that she regrets getting fillers at such a young age. She had fillers in her jaw when she was aged just 18 and has been on a mission to get back to a more natural look over the past year - getting her lip filler dissolved last October and her composite bonds removed in March.

The dangers of getting fillers

Fillers are substances injected into the face and lips to fill in lines or wrinkles and plump lips or cheeks. In the UK, they are usually made from hyaluronic acid. The effects of fillers usually last for six to eighteen months after the procedure and cost upwards of £200 a go.

Getting fillers is usually a safe procedure - as long as it is carried out by a qualified and experienced professional. However, there is a risk of infection, scarring and blocked blood vessels in the face. Skin can also end up looking lumpy or the filler could move to a different part of the face.
