She copped a lot of abuse for her prominent lip work on Married At First Sight – and now former reality star Tracey Jewel has debuted her new, $9000 lips.
The star, who was berated by online trolls for her beep-stung pout, confesses that she entered the show having had extensive fillers added to her face. But all the hatred she copped online for her signature swollen kisser inspired the star to revisit the doctor’s surgery for thousands of dollars-worth of new work.
But rather than submit to further plumping, a chastened Tracey decided to have her existing fillers dissolved, at an astounding price of $9,000. She posted pictures of herself on Instagram over the weekend, showing off her new look.
'Becoming single again I thought, I want to look the best that I ever have,' Tracey has said of decision to work on her face after her divorce. ‘The first thing I did was book into to get my boobs done and I started getting a little bit of Botox because prevention is better than the cure, it's just part of looking after myself.
'Reshaping is just filler and skin tightening, skin rejuv are peels and vampire facials.’
Tracey, 35, who felt she looked good before going on the show following work on her lips, cheeks and eyes, says she’s very happy with her reduced pout and more natural—looking face, and won’t be augmenting her kisser ever again.
Confessing that TV cameras revealed angles of her face she wasn’t previously aware of and didn’t like, she was grateful that her doctor could offer a solution by injecting a substance called hyaluronidase into her face.
Rejecting claims that she repeatedly licked her lips on TV because of a surgical procedure that had exposed the inner mucous lining of her mouth, Tracey that habit was simply a nervous gesture.
'I’m aware of it now. I think it’s because I’m nervous, I think it’s a nervous tic,' she revealed. 'I’m always put under the pressure, it’s me trying to process what is going on.'
