The 40-year-old comedian joked that she looked like Disney's Maleficent with plumper cheeks as she shared her trip to see dermatologist Dr. LoGerfo to have them dissolved with her Instagram followers.

The 'I Feel Pretty' star captioned a snap of herself with numbing cream on: "I tried getting fillers. Turns out I was already full. Thank God you can dissolve them. I looked like #malificent thanks @drjlodnp (sic)."

On the procedure, LoGerfo shared on his own page: "Using dermal filler can be a wonderful way to replace lost volume and enhance the face, but filler placement is extremely important.

@amyschumer came to me after having filler elsewhere, and we decided that where the filler was placed was not ideal, so we dissolved it! Dissolving filler is a very simple and quick treatment. I injected hyaluronidase (an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid) to dissolve it!"

Amy explained to one follower that turning 40 and undergoing surgery for endometriosis - which involved the removal of her uterus and appendix - was the reason behind her getting fillers in the first place.

Endometriosis is where tissue from the uterus grows outside of it.

And the 'Trainwreck' actress recently admitted she felt like a changed person following the surgery.

Amy has felt much stronger and has more energy to care for her and her husband Chris Fischer's two-year-old son Gene.
