Carol McGiffin has revealed she "looked like she’d been in a fire" after having her facelift.
The Loose Women were discussing regrets around plastic surgery, as Carol revealed all about how she felt with her face lift.
Her colleague, Nadia Sawalha, revealed Carol has complained about "numbness around the ears" and even told her she has occasionally said she wishes she did not have the surgery.
But Carol leapt to her own defence, while also revealing her true feelings around the surgery, and what made it a really difficult thing to do.

She said: "It isn’t easy a lot of people get it done for free and say, ‘Oh it was so easy. The next day I was out shopping!’ No you weren’t, unless you have a big mask on."
"It has been quite difficult but I knew it would recover. I knew someone who got it done with the same surgeon and she was very honest with me so I kind of knew what to expect, so I was absolutely ready for it .
"But I think a lot of women would go for it and think it would be really easy.
"It’s not painful. It doesn’t hurt, well it didn’t for me, but it was really unomfortable and having to sleep upright for three weeks and having this compression band on your face.

"When you take it off you seriously look like you’ve been in a fire, I’m not joking. But I would never show those pictures because what’sthe point? Look at me now!"
The 58-year-old returned to the show for the first time since 2013 last year, showing off her new face in the process.
When she returned, after the panel showed a montage of her best bits from her time on the show, she joked: "If you’re looking at me thinking I look a bit strange or a bit younger than I did last week then I probably do."
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
