She spoke out as a warning to young women who are suffering from body image issues
Megan Barton Hanson has opened up about her plastic surgery regrets.
The Love Island star went under the knife for a breast augmentation and nose job when she still a teen.
She admitted that she thought at the time it would make her happier but now knows it won’t fix self-esteem issues.
“I thought at 19 getting bigger boobs and a smaller nose that I would be a new woman and be super confident,” she told Good Morning Britain.
“But really that is just the tip of the iceberg.”
The reality star explained that the only way to fix these types of issues is to work on them from within.
“You can decorate the outside shell, but really to feel good on the inside you need to work on it.”
“For me, it was therapy and with age that you become more confident in how you look.”
She added: “I have CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) all the time.”
She also urged people to prioritise their mental health, and spend money on it in the same way they would new accessories.
“People will spend loads on a new pair of trainers, a designer bag or getting their hair done, they’ll go to the gym and spend loads of money on membership but spend that money on therapy.”
