Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan has revealed that she’s had two BBL (Brazillian bum lifts), but has never told fans, fearing that it would pressure them into getting surgery.

Hagan shared the news about her rear-end surgery on Instagram by posting two videos side by side, with one showing her post surgery, but before she was seriously dedicated to looking after her health.

“5 years ago to now I genuinely couldn’t be happier with the changes I have made to my lifestyle to get me where I am today.

“The first video was after not one but TWO rounds of BBL [Brazilian bum lifts]. I didn’t go into these surgeries lightly. It took years of appearance based abuse before I finally decided enough was enough and I was going to get the body of my dreams! How wrong was I!”

“I would get messages weekly offering free surgery. Do you know how tempting that is for a 22 year old with a lifetime of weight issues and an ED who wants to stop being bullied for being fat? Very bloody tempting however I didn’t want to ever promote it so I paid.”

While Hagan confirmed that she did undergo two butt lifts, she stressed that she didn’t want her choice to affect impressionable followers.

“I have always just said surgery generically because I never wanted anyone to go and copy what I did and be left unhappy, especially after learning how dangerous the procedure actually is.

“As much as I tried to hide it, it was pretty noticeable and instead the comments just went from ‘fat slag’ to ‘too much surgery she looked better before’ overnight.”
