Danniella Westbrook's facelift triggered by trolls

Danniella feels amazing after her surgery, even if she is suffering some pain.

Danniella Westbrook underwent a facelift after being "trolled and ridiculed" by people.

The former EastEnders actress jetted out to Poland to go under the knife earlier this week (beg05Jun17) and has given The Sun Online an update on her status.

In photos she's shared with the outlet, Danniella, 43, looks a little worse for wear with bruises around her eyes from where she's had the skin tightened, but she feels confident the surgery will pay off.

"I woke up from the operation in so much pain, it was crazy how much I was hurting," she sighed. "There were drains in my face, throat and neck - basically everywhere! I'm dreading them being taken out, but on the whole I feel amazing so I can't moan too much."

She explained that the criticism she received from trolls triggered her decision to get the procedure.

"I've been so ill the last eighteen months with my health and my teeth, then on top of that I've been trolled and ridiculed on social media and in the street. The pressure got so bad I had to go away and get surgery," she said.

The blonde star has had a difficult 12 months, which saw her battle a number of health problems including suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD) as well as go through a second miscarriage with her then-boyfriend George Arnold.

This isn't the first time Danniella has altered herself and she's been open about her previous surgeries, admitting on Celebrity Botched Up Bodies in 2016 that she had become somewhat addicted. Most famously she had her nose reconstructed after drug abuse left it damaged.

But she's feeling positive about the future now, adding to The Sun Online, "I am feeling amazing - I knew I had to do this for myself."
