Getting better: Lauren Pope recovered in hospital after having her PIP implants removed on last night's TOWIE
In January she admitted that she was terrified after discovering that she was among the 40,000 women who had been given PIP implants.
But, she was even more scared of having to go under the knife to have the possibly faulty implants removed.
However, Lauren Pope was seen recovering in hospital with two new additions safely installed on last night's episode of TOWIE.
The three musketeers: Lauren Goodger and Chloe Sims visited their friend to see how she was getting on
The 28-year-old glamour model appeared tired and out of sorts as best friends Lauren Goodger and Chloe Sims dropped by to check on how she was doing.
It didn't take long for the DJ to join in the banter and get back to her old self as she commented on how attractive her doctor was.
Dr Mario inquired about the patients health and explained to her that she had 'a little bit more volume, fullness and cleavage.. perfect.'
Dr handsome: Lauren commented to her friends about how good looking her cosmetic surgeon was
After he left the private room, Pope said excitedly to her mates: 'How mad is it that a hot guy has literally cut me open?'
Lauren, who has recently launched her own clothing line, had been criticised on Twitter for appearing on the ITV2 show without her usual amount of fake tan and make-up.
She defended herself, however, and said: 'After continuously throwing up and crying it wasnt the most important thing on my mind but cheers for the comment.'
Time to recover: Lauren thanked her followers on Twitter for their support and said that she would be resting for the rest of the week
The reality TV star also took time to thank her followers for the many well wishes she had received.
She said: 'Thx 4 all msgs, I have had my PIP's removed n am so happy with the results. Big thx to @MYA_Tweet n Dr Russo, relax time 4 me now this wk!'
Although she was initially afraid of having the operation Lauren took the opportunity to slightly increase her bust size.
She explained earlier this month: 'They do tell you you might have to have another boob job after 15 or 20 years just for safety reasons, but I always said that I would never have it done again, I'd rather let them rot inside me, I do not want to go through that again.
'So I thought, "Oh my god, I'm going to have to have it done again", but then my next thought was, and this probably sounds really bad, that I could actually get a new pair of bigger boobs.'
