A beautician who spent £5,000 a year on face fillers stopped the cosmetic procedure after she couldn't recognise herself anymore.
Emily Spence, 28, got hooked on dermal fillers from the age of 18 and went bigger every appointment.
She even spent £3,000 on a boob job then where she was extremely happy with the results.

In 2018, Emily got her lip filler built to 5ml and had jaw, chin and cheek fillers, spending £5,000 on the lot.
After she had jaw surgery to change her face shape, she got to the point where she didn't even recognise herself in the mirror.
Now she's realised her obsession was down to her insecurities and hates how she looked with fillers.
Emily has most of them dissolved and opened her own clinic but makes sure to chat to clients before their treatments.
The nurse and clinician, from Derbyshire, said: "I was obsessed with how I looked and I could never be happy.
"I had jaw filler to make my face square and made my lips massive.
"I realise now it was because I was so insecure about my appearance and my body. I had body dysmorphia."

Emily, who turned herself into a Barbie, started suffering with body dysmorphia as a teenager and became obsessed with her weight.
As a result, she hardly ate and would only binge at the end of the day as she felt "fat".
In a bid to improve her self-esteem she began getting lip fillers which she topped up every few months.
And each time she had lip fillers, Emily went bigger.

She claimed: "Something twigged and I realised I'd taken it too far.
"I started to have therapy and realised I was struggling with body dysphoria.
"I had all the jaw and chin filler dissolved so my face looked like me. And now I just have a little bit of lip filler in."
Now Emily has set up her own business but uses her knowledge as a qualified nurse to help women in their choice to get fillers.
She concluded: "I'll always have an initial chat with them first and ask why they want fillers.
"I want to make sure others don't change themselves when they are not happy within.
"When I had filler done no one ever thought to do these checks or question if the reasons I was getting it done.
"I think it's so important to check that clients are having fillers done for the right reasons."
