The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has battled with her weight on and off for years and has decided she's had enough of the "bad pictures" she's seen of herself recently so underwent liposuction at the Elite Surgical to get rid of her "hard pockets of fat."

Taking to her Instagram account, the 31-year-old star said she's now "in love" with her body and is relying on a waist trainer to ensure her figure remains toned and trim.

She wrote: "I am [loving] my body right now.. I am wearing my @maskateertm waist trainer in black ... which is keeping the swelling down and shape sculpted on my body. My stomach is rock hard and toned thanks to @elitecosmeticsurgery who helped me remove any lumps and bumps!

"I'm proud of what I'm achieving and can't wait share with you what's coming up next."

Her surgery comes just days after she was left with a swollen face and puffy eyes that were glued shut after she had a botched eyebrow wax.

She said recently: "It is mywhole face swollen .. much better than what it was .. im currently icing my eyes lol and the cuts clearing up .. I couldn't open my eyes x (sic)"

Lauren has made no secret of the fact she likes to beautify herself on a regular basis - including fake tan and lip fillers - and recently admitted she's thinking of having a gastric band fitted because she's tired of fluctuating from a size 8 to a 14.

She said recently: "When I was doing my fitness DVD, I was so strict and I saw results. But I'm a sociable person and it made me miserable to stay in all the time.

"I fell off the wagon and I've put weight back on. I reckon I'm a size 12 now and I'm scared I might get bigger. I don't know what else to do. Go back to the gym, diet, and hate my life? I've spoken to friends about liposuction or a gastric band. I'd do anything like that if it meant I saw results fast.

"I'm sick of yo-yoing. I know I can have the best body. I'm curvy and go in and out in the right places but I just need that head start.

"I've tried everything else so surgery seems like the right option."
