Amy Childs, one of the stars on the popular British reality show The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) has been open about going under the knife in the past. But in a new interview, the star says that she overdid her plastic surgery and now looks like a “freak,” according to a report by Mirror Online.
23-year old Amy Childs has admitted to everything from lip augmentation to upsizing her breast implants after losing weight. Now she says, she has had too much work.
She told the Daily Star she made “a big mistake and became addicted to cosmetic surgery.”
She said, “I don’t want to look like a blow up doll anymore.”
Apparently Amy had bad experiences with plastic surgery. After she had lip fillers, her lips became lumpy so she had the procedure reversed.
She also suffered some complications from breast implants and says, “I’m not going to mess around with my body any more.”
“I have made a big mistake about all this – and my mistake was to become addicted to cosmetic surgery.”
“I looked in the mirror and I thought, ‘I have got to change and go back to how I was’, because I had become a freak, you know what I mean?”
Amy first went under the knife for breast augmentation at age 18 and is now calling for a law to prevent people under the age of 18 from going under the knife.
“The age limit should be raised to 21. I don’t want other young girls to make the mistakes I made. And I don’t want to look like a blow-up doll any more.
“I used to love a pout, but I grew to hate my Daffy Duck lips.
“What I say to young girls is this: if you want a boob job, think about it very, very carefully. And do your research first.”
According to the Daily Star, Amy recently experienced pain in her left breast and was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. Apparently the implant had pulled away from her natural tissue and was causing massive swelling.
At the time, she told Heat: “I’m facing having the implants taken out, the fluid drained, then having them put in again. I can’t bear the thought of having more surgery.”
Apparently Amy thinks that her breast implant may have been damaged while she was participating in a publicity stunt.
Amy currently owns a beauty salon and is said to be transforming into a businesswoman. She doesn’t want to remove the implants entirely as she fears having hanging loose skin.
However, she has tried to undo some of her plastic surgery, having some of the fillers removed from her lips for a more natural look as well as taming down some of her wild look by rocking a more natural makeup look and less revealing clothing.
While Amy may not like her looks, she still looks great to her fans and may yet reconsider her stance on plastic surgery as she ages.
