CHARLOTTE Crosby flashed her surgery bandages on a night out after getting her breast implants removed.
She teamed it with a small silver bag and snake print boots, and held onto Joshua’s hand as they celebrated his 25th birthday.
But as they headed up the steps, the flash of the paparazzi cameras revealed the white bandages around Charlotte’s back and chest underneath her dress.
The reality star had the op earlier this month after returning from a trip to Brazil with Josh – with a big reveal being planned for her MTV reality series.
A source close to the star explained: “Charlotte has been in quite severe pain with her breasts, one in particular.
“She saw a specialist before Brazil and he diagnosed severe inflammation and capsular contracture – which is when the scar tissue around the implant inside the body gets tight and hard.
“This can cause chronic pain and hardness which was what Charlotte was experiencing. As a precaution she has also been referred for breast scans to ensure there is nothing else going on.”
Charlotte originally had an op to correct her symmastia – the so-called ‘uniboob’ where breasts merge across the breastbone – in 2017.
However, she had implants put in at the same time as fixing the problem, which she was born with, and now wishes she hadn’t.
The insider explained: “She bitterly regrets having implants at the same time.
“Those implants have been removed and Dr Hassan has tried to fix the symmastia for a second time.”
Days later, Charlotte paid tribute to her “big balloons” after Joshua shared a throwback snap of the couple on the beach.
The post prompted the reality star to pay a sentimental tribute to her former boobs, writing: “The last holiday with them big balloons.”
