Lottie Tomlinson surprised her social media followers the other week when she announced she was having her lip filler removed in a bid to look more like her natural self. Now she’s giving us all an update on her lips post-dissolving – and they look very different.

Lottie, who gave birth to her first child in August of this year, shares the results of the cosmetic work (or unworking, rather) on her Instagram account.

“Thank you @harley_st_injectables for giving me my natural face back. After years of having filler, I decided to dissolve it all and embrace the natural me. One of the best decisions I’ve made,” she writes.

Lottie, 24, accompanies the gushing caption with two snaps of herself where her lips look noticeably less full. However, the model and make-up artist proves a bit of lip liner and a slick of gloss can work similar wonders to a few millilitres of filler.

This is the first real look we’ve been given of Lottie’s lips since she headed into the clinic to have her old filler dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This substance breaks down the filler over the course of several hours, with final post-bruising and swelling results being visible about a week later (hence why she’s now posting her after shots).

Because hyaluronidase is injected into the lips, the area gets numbed with cream so that the patient doesn’t experience any discomfort. If you’re interested in the full filler removal process, we have a detailed step-by-step of what you can expect from it here. Lottie also helpfully documented the full process on her TikTok account if you want a more visual look.

This news comes as former Geordie Shore star, and fellow new mum, Charlotte Crosby announces she hates the way she looks with lip filler. Charlotte, 32, says she hasn’t had fillers put in for more than two years but that they look “bigger than ever”. Possibly, she says, because of water retention caused by her pregnancy.

Instead Charlotte says she’ll be getting a lip blush treatment to define her lips. If you haven’t heard of this procedure, it’s a semi-permanent way of tattooing pigment onto the lips. It also helps create a defined border – a bit like lip liner – as well as giving the client a custom tint that lasts around two years before a top-up is needed.

We can’t wait to see Charlotte filler removal snaps, which she says she’ll post on Instagram next week.
