Former Liberty X member Michelle Heaton has spoken to the Mail on Sunday about why she decided to get dermal filler treatment worth £2000 after she underwent the menopause early, something which was brought on by her surgical treatments to combat health issues. The 36-year old had a double mastectomy in 2013 and a hysterectomy last year to try and lower the risk of developing cancer.
After the hysterectomy triggered early menopause, Michelle lost a lot of weight and her skin aged; she told the publication she wanted to do something which would boost her self-esteem and dermal fillers were a simple way to rejuvenate her skin. She explained that, although she has had Botox injections in the past, she did feel nervous about getting filler treatment.
Before the procedure, Michelle did a lot of research about what type of filler might be used and how much should be injected, as well as what the possible side-effects could be. The mother-of-two also researched her surgeon, so she could be sure he was properly qualified and had good experience with filler injections. Despite her nerves, Michelle was happy with the results, saying that no one noticed a change, other than to mention how well she was looking. Her husband, Hugh, also admitted that there was some improvement.
