DANNIELLA Westbrook showed off her glam new look after getting lip filler and Botox ahead of her next facial surgery.
The former EastEnders actress, 47, took a selfie of her newly-smoothed visage as she sat cuddling her French bulldog.
She wrote on Instagram: "Over the moon with how my skin is looking. Huge thank you to the @knightsbridgeaesthetics8 amazing team what they have done to boost my confidence before my surgery is due at some point this year still waiting on the surgeon for dates… 🤦🏼♀️."
While she loves her look now, Danniella feared her lips would explode in the days after she was injected.
She continued: "I can’t lie 24/48hours after my Russian lips and fillers and Botox I was so swollen I thought I was going to burst and the poor team @knightsbridgeaesthetics8 must of been sick of me asking is this normal!!
"Now 5 days on I’m so happy with the results.. Thanks guys you are amazing at what you do … #amazing #happy #selflove#youdoyou."
In May Danniella completed the first stage of surgery to rebuild her face.
She was forced to have her jaw rebuilt after the bone began to wear away.
She said at the time: “Stage one of the four part journey of reconstructive surgery to rebuild my face and finally stop all the hate.”
A pal close to Danniella – who has battled a high profile drug addiction for two decades – said: “This is an incredibly important process for Danniella. It is more than just an operation.
"It is the start of a major new chapter in her life. She receives a lot of her hate on social media and is hoping this operation will correct many of the problems.”
Danniella first revealed three years ago that the bones in her face are “rotting away” after years of drug abuse and botched surgery, which led to osteoporosis.
She told how her left cheekbone is “wasting” away and she’s been left with screws instead of teeth, which cut her tongue as she speaks.
Her botched surgery means that some days she wakes up and the left side of her face is completely “sunken”. Other days her cheek swells up in agony as her bones are “decaying” and “weakened”.
“I just don’t look like myself any more,” she said in a 2018 interview.
“Obviously I’m going to age a lot faster anyway because of the drugs but I didn’t need this as well.”
Danniella rose to fame playing Sam Mitchell, the younger sister of EastEnders bad boys Phil and Grant, in 1990.
But her time on the show was not without drama as Danniella's cocaine use started to affect her work.
She was written out of the popular show in 1996, but later went on to return another two times.
