TOWIEs Yazmin Oukhellou says she looked like a duck before dissolving lip fillers

TOWIE's Yazmin Oukhellou has dissolved her lip fillers and gone back to basics, telling fans that she's making the switch to avoid looking like a "duck" and to be "taken more seriously" when it comes to her career.

The 27 year old joined The Only Way Is Essex back in 2017 with her then-boyfriend James Lock.

Over the years, she has had £11,500 worth of surgery, with procedures being carried out on her breasts, nouse and mouth.

However, Yazmin has now said that she had ""gone too far" and feels: "The natural look is definitely in now, the big lips are dated."

Talking to The Sun, she explained: "I kept overfilling my lips getting more and more put in. I started looking stupid and like a duck.

"The final straw for me was when I went to a family wedding and my mum and dad said 'the lip filler is getting a bit much now'.

"So I wanted to strip it back and be a bit more natural."

Yazmin added that her decision has been influenced by her career hopes.

She said: "Especially as I want to do more outside of TOWIE so I want to get taken more seriously.

"You can do both – get work done and have people take you seriously. It shouldn't have to be a choice, but it feels like it is sometimes."

On Instagram, Dr Raj, who dissolved Yazmin's lip fillers, posted a photo alongside the caption: "Beautiful day welcoming our gorgeous @yazminoukhellou to Chelsea."

Yazmin is one of a number of reality stars who has recently decided to reverse cosmetic procedures.

Love Island's Faye Winter is currently sporting a more natural lip after having her fillers removed earlier this week.

Showing her 1,100,000 Instagram fans her new look, she said: "Yes, these are my natural lips at the moment guys, thank you so much for the messages saying that you like it without the filler.

"But you know me, I'll say it as it is and I prefer it with filler.

"So I'm going to take all of your lovely comments and throw them out the back window of the car because I'm having filler put back in, is the bottom line."

Yazmin is hoping that more celebrities and people in the public eye will go for the natural look.

However, it seems plenty of Brits are still lining up to have procedures carried out.

The director of Save Face, a government-approved register for non-surgical cosmetic practitioners Ashton Collins, recently said: "We've seen a 37 per cent rise in people searching for lip fillers on our website since Love Island began."
