"I came out looking like cat woman": Megan Marx says she was "overfilled" by a plastic surgeon.

Ahh, another day, another reality star opening up about their plastic surgery woes.

This time, it’s former Bach in Paradise star Megan Marx – who is by no means shy when it comes to her favoured cosmetic procedures.

She’s previously admitted to NW Magazine to having approximately $47,000 worth of surgery, ranging from cheek fillers, Botox, rhinoplasty and a lip lift.

But on Tuesday, she spilled the beans on a plastic surgery disaster she once endured on Instagram, in the hopes it will deter fans from rushing their treatments without thorough research.

(Unless they want to look like “cat woman”, that is).

Gender studies Professor and feminist Dana Berkowitz was strongly opposed to Botox. And then she tried it…

“A while back I had the unfortunate experience of being ‘overfilled’,” she recalled in the post below. “I was short on time after a busy few months and went to just any clinic (not saying where). I came out looking like cat woman,” the 29-year-old said.

Calling all you West Aussies! (ESP Geraldtonians) As you probably know, I’ve been seeing cosmetic clinics for a few years – for surface skin treatments but also wrinkle relaxer and filler etc. I really don’t think there’s any point hiding it (big on transparency here). A while back I had the unfortunate experience of being ‘overfilled’. I was short on time after a busy few months and went to just any clinic (not saying where). I came out looking like cat woman, ha! It scared me off doing anything for a while, until I knew I could go to someone I trusted. Three weeks ago I went to see Karen @medicalaestheticsgeraldton She doesn’t rush your treatment because she doesn’t have the bottom dollar or time constraints of a visiting practitioner, is very experienced (years AND training), and follow up is easy and always available because she’s the only locally based senior injector in Gero. Best of all – not only does Karen go for a natural look that is specific to my face & needs, she’s just an awesome person – I always feel comfortable, and I’m never scared she’s going to make me look weird haha! Love you Karen! X

The star – who admits she’s “big on transparency” when it comes to her past plastic surgery procedures, has previously been candid about her decision to have her first cosmetic procedure before her 18th birthday.

She told NW:  “…I got my boobs done just before I got married. It’s bizarre, right? I hadn’t even had sex yet and saved up and didn’t tell a single person that I went off to get them done.”

In March, she similarly took to Instagram to describe the details of her “liquid nose job” after fans had repeatedly questioned ‘why she looked different’.

Just last week, Megan confirmed she and Bachelor in Paradise flame Jake Ellis were back together after splitting in August.

The 29-year-old explained that she was the one who ultimately ended things, but after two months, she returned home to Jake, who wanted to patch things up.

“I have a pile of love letters in the drawer next to my bed. They’re all from Jake and most of them I didn’t deserve,” she began.

“I spent the course of our relationship with one foot in and one foot out, and the letters are pleas to remind me what we had, what I’d be giving up if I ran.

“I did run though, eventually.”
