The Former Liberty X singer admitted how scars from her life-saving surgeries are still a struggle to look at in the mirror
Former Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton has opened up about her confidence following her traumatic life-altering surgeries in 2012 and 2015.
Michelle’s grandmother and great-grandmother both died from cancer in their 30s, and so she made the decision to undergo a double mastectomy and hysterectomy for the sake of her family.
The mum-of-two revealed to Closer magazine that just getting dressed every day can be difficult for her following the effects of her operations and reconstructive surgeries.
“I feel good in clothes, but it’s a struggle looking in the mirror.”
After having her womb and both breasts removed, Michelle admitted that her struggle to look in the mirror in mostly when she gets dressed.
She added: “When I get changed, I don’t really look. I just pass over it; it’s not out of disgust, it’s more like, ‘OK I know my scars are there, on my chest and on my tummy. let’s just get dressed as quickly as I can’.”
The brunette beauty stated: “I wouldn’t ever have unnecessary surgery again.”
The star’s candid chat about the effects of her surgeries come after she found out she was going through the menopause early, aged just 39, compared to the average age of 51.
Michelle, who has been married to husband Hugh Hanley since 2010, described herself as being “such a horrible person” to him and her kids.
After writing about her experiences in her new book, Michelle said that reading back about how she had acted made her feel “ashamed”.
