Danniella Westbrook excited as she shows off healing face after surgery

Danniella Westbrook has revealed she is still 'healing' after undergoing reconstructive surgery on her face.

The former EastEnders star, 48, underwent various procedures to restore her face earlier this year – after her cheek was damaged by dental work.

Now, Danniella – who famously suffered damage to her nasal septum due to past drug abuse – has proudly showed off the results of her recent surgeries.

Taking to social media today (July 1), the actress shared a glamorous selfie of herself ahead of meeting her partner David.

She captioned the shot: "Thank you for the second time this week @twistedvanitymua love this make up, feeling fresh and flirty and off to see my man.

"My face is healing better after recent septicemia episode swelling going down but you can see where it’s been cut underneath and healing after last procedure.

"I’m showing this and sorry if it offends anyone but it’s part of my journey and I’m a little excited for how it’s all going up till now. Have a fabulous Friday one and all."

Danniella underwent surgery in a bid to restore her confidence, after being hounded by online trolls over her appearance.

She underwent her first in May 2021, saying at the time: “Stage one of the four-part journey of reconstructive surgery to rebuild my face and finally stop all the hate.”

She then went on to have further surgery this year, which involved surgeons inserting her bone rib into her cheek.

Speaking to OK!, she explained: "I'm going through a lot operations at the moment. They're good but they're very hard.

"The first two of my operations haven't taken a toll on me but the next lot will do. I'm seeing a bone surgeon next who is going to be removing a rib."

Despite the gruelling procedures, Danniella has continued to remain positive when it comes to her physical appearance.

"Can’t wait for all my surgery to be done," she previously told fans.

"I will be back to my best and fighting fit and next year I will be 50! Bring it on. I’m ready – more than ready, I’m ready for a full transformation physically."

It comes weeks after Danniella was rushed to hospital after suffering from the potentially fatal blood-poisoning condition septicemia.

A rep for the star previously told The Sun: "Danniella suffered a sudden health shock.

"Thankfully the issue was caught early and dealt with by medical professionals. Danniella has been released from hospital and is home recovering with the support of close family."
