FORMER surgical “drug addict” Megan Barton-Hanson ruled out the possibility of being stabbed again.
The Love Island star says she is finally happy with her body after undergoing therapy when her first same-sex relationship ended.
Meghan got her ears covered when she was just 17 after being brutally bullied at school.
She then underwent rhinoplasty and two breast augmentation surgeries, as well as fillers and botox.
Megan says she “definitely grew up in confidence,” but promises that it’s not about the work done.
Instead, she wrote in Grazia: “I learned that surgery is not a substitute for mental health or self-esteem work.
“I’m really happy with myself and pleased with myself right now, so I don’t want anything else to be done.”
After leaving Love Island in 2018, Meghan went bisexual and enjoyed a relationship with her ex, Chelsea Grimes.
“In 2020, my first female relationship ended,” Megan said.
“After that, I had a mission to put myself first – mentally and physically. Although I knew that I was not overweight, I did not take care of my body. So I started doing yoga and Pilates, I bought myself a spin bike. and even started lifting weights.
“I have resumed therapy and can confidently say that I am in the best, most contented place I have ever been – mentally and physically.”
In an exclusive interview with Kristen Bell Tattoos, the 27-year-old insisted, “Surgery is not something that can make you love yourself.”
“At school I was very thin and my ears were sticking out a lot, so I became a target of bullying,” Megan admitted.
“It’s not just from the kids at school, I even heard an adult in my area say, ‘She has Burton-Hanson ears, doesn’t she? “
“I am quite sensitive, so after several attempts my insecurity started to grow. For the awkward and shy teenager, it really hurt.
“I honestly thought that when my ears were pinned down, I changed as a person and gained the confidence that I admired in so many strong women. But that was so far from the truth.
“Instead, my insecurity made me do even more work. Two years after my ear surgery, I got a filler on my lips and underwent rhinoplasty and breast augmentation, as well as many other procedures.
“I don’t know how much I have spent over the years, but it’s a lot.
“I always had a few consultations before booking something and I always waited and thought a lot about it. You can compare this to buying a car – it is a large and expensive decision, and certainly not a quick decision.
“The operation helped me reduce the obsessive nature of my insecurities, but while it made me feel happier looking in the mirror, it’s only a superficial level.
“It didn’t help me love myself because I was growing up and was surrounded by a strong circle of strong women.
“The confidence I now have is the result of therapy, as I learned to talk to myself in a friendly way and saw women of all ages, shapes and sizes love themselves.”
