Martin admitted taking the money over an eight week period from Barclays Bank in Liskeard, Cornwall, where she worked as a clerk.
The 24 year-old from St Austell, Cornwall, is understood to have spent £4,000 on breast enlargement surgery and £1,700 dental work to whiten her teeth.
Money was also spent on liposuction, hair extensions and make up.
The mother-of-one travelled to Bristol on shopping sprees and also spent the stolen money on nights out.
She was due to go on trial on Monday at Truro Crown Court charged with 25 offences of theft between September and October 2011 but the prosecution charged her with just one count of £46,000 theft over the same period.
