It’s evident in the photos that Megan has had cosmetic surgery procedures, and now we can finally reveal what she has really had done, and when! A close pal revealed to HELLO! that Megan had her first cosmetic procedure at 14 years old - visiting the plastic surgeon to pin back her ears while she was still at school.

Following this, the Love Island star has also had rhinoplasty, lip filler and a breast augmentation as she approached her 20th birthday.
Megan's dramatic transformation
We asked Dr Munir Somji of Dr MediSpa for his view on Megan's possible cosmetic surgery. He told us: "She definitely appears to have had a rhinoplasty, as the tip of her nose used to drop when she smiled. It looks like she's had a tip lift as well. A rhinoplasty costs between £5-10k in the UK and you would need a good surgeon for this procedure."
"Megan's lips look a lot plumper when she smiles than in the before picture," he says. "It depends on where you go, but this cosmetic procedure costs between £1000 and £1,500. It's not a quick treatment though; she will have had this done slowly over time."

Dr Somji also reveals: "There's not much movement in Megan's forehead when you watch her on Love Island. It looks like she's had Botox, which costs around £300 to £400. Megan's brow position has changed slightly too – it used to be raised but now it's more horizontal."
"She also appears to have had a breast enlargement, which ranges in price between £5-10k depending on the surgeon. Megan may have had filler in her cheeks but it's hard to tell as makeup can emulate that fullness. None of her work is overdone, she looks good for it."
On possible ear correction surgery: "Pinning the ears back is a simple surgery to do and costs around £3,500. It does make a difference to your appearance. It's difficult to classify it as a cosmetic treatment though as it often affects confidence, so can be considered psychological or cosmetic."
Megan has also had extensive dental work done. We spoke to celebrity dentist Dr Richard Marques, who said: “Megan looks really great with her new look and in my opinion she has had eight veneers which are likely to have cost between £5,000 - £10,000. She has had veneers to improve the colour and shape of her teeth and smile. As you can see they look a lot brighter and whiter now which gives her smile a healthy and youthful appearance. The veneers have also widened the smile to give her a wider and more full look to her smile and teeth.”
All in all, since her teenage years, Megan has spent around £25,000 on her new look.
