Married At First Sight star Alana Lister has celebrated her 31st birthday by sharing several sweet throwback snaps taken before her reality TV-worthy transformation.

The schoolteacher from Queensland took to her Instagram stories on Wednesday to post a photo from her childhood as well as two pics from her older years.

"Y'all wanted some baby throwbacks, me in high school and with my natural hair colour so here you go," she wrote.

In one undated pic, a pre-cosmetic surgery Alana struck a pose in a bikini top while sporting long, brown tresses. In the second, she wears minimal makeup and is holding a soft toy dog.

In both photos, Alana looks a world away from the glam bride who was paired with 'husband' Jason Engler on the most recent season of MAFS.

These days, she's rocking honey-blonde locks and red carpet-ready makeup.

A key factor in her transformation was no doubt her breast augmentation which she underwent at some point before appearing on Channel Nine's 'social experiment'.

Alana admitted to having the cosmetic surgery in a frank and honest Instagram Live Q&A in late April after the show wrapped.

When asked if her bust was 'natural' by a curious fan, she didn't hold back.

"My boobs are not natural," she stated. "That question gets asked a lot."

Birthday bash

Alana appears to have celebrated her turning 31 at a bar overlooking the beach before heading out for a night of partying.

She shared several snaps of herself wearing a blue, cut-out midi dress by Hello Molly at the bar which her Instagram followers loved.

"What a babe," wrote one while another added, "Gorgeous as always".

For her night out, Alana had a quick outfit change into a pair of white high-waisted trousers by Missguided and a Meshki glitzy silver cowl neck top that showcased her cleavage.

Alana later took to Instagram to thank her fans for their kind wishes. 

"Thanks to everyone who celebrated with me on my Birthday weekend," she wrote.

"Sending good vibes and big love girl," replied a fan.

"You were my fave on this season and every season to date!" added another.
