She had the fillers to tighten the ‘loose skin’ on her face.
‘After losing 92kg I am covered in lose [sic] skin and one place that I don’t think many people would even think it would occur is the face,’ she said previously.
‘My cheeks sagged leaving me with big indent lines around my nose to mouth which is also something that can happen as you age and your skin loses the elasticity.’

Speaking previously to FEMAIL about her top tips for losing weight and keeping it off, Ms Anderson said: ‘I like to spend a couple of hours each Sunday planning what meals I want for the week, then going food shopping and finally prepping meals and snacks’.
‘I [also] find if I am well hydrated then it also makes a huge difference in my energy levels,’ she said.
‘Ensuring I have good healthy and easy snacks on hand means it helps choose a healthy option over something that is unhealthy or more convenient.’
She also recommended small daily changes – such as changing a catch-up such as a glass of wine to a walk and a smoothie – as the best way to achieve your goals.
