Heidi thinks her plastic surgery transformed her from an “ugly duckling” to “an upgraded version of me”. Take a look at the photo gallery above documenting her changes.Do you agree?
Heidi Montag, 23, underwent a whopping 10 surgeries to both her face and body on Nov. 20, 2009. The wannabe pop star and her husband Spencer Pratt are constantly being scrutinized for their fake, publicity seeking ways and in true form, The Hills star allowed People magazine to follow her plastic surgery odyssey. “For the past three years I’ve thought about what to have done,” Heidi tells People magazine. “I am absolutely beyond obsessed.” So obsessed that she’s been saving for years for the surgery, and it’s estimated it cost $30,000.
Heidi claims she’s just doing what everyone else in Hollywood does. “Every starlet is getting surgery every other day to keep their looks up. They just don’t talk about it. I wanted to be honest,” she says. So honest in fact that Heidi hid the surgeries from her family over the last nine weeks claiming she was just sick for fear of their disapproving words.
Heidi’s honesty steered her into serious overshare territory. In the interview, she tells us all about “asking my husband to take down my pants so that I can go to the bathroom.” Um, TMI Heidi.
Don’t think this will be the end of surgeries for Heidi, “I’m already planning my next surgery – I’m determined to get bigger ones!” she says about her now DDD-sized breasts, which she got in 2007 along with a nose job.
And it’s not just bigger boobs that she’s interested in — she discusses getting even MORE procedures in the future. She plans to keep going because, as she puts it, “the surgery is always so rewarding.”
Heidi’s 10 nips and tucks:
- Mini brow lift
- Botox in forehead and frown area
- Nose job revision
- Fat injections in cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips
- Chin reduction
- Neck liposuction
- Ears pinned back
- Breast augmentation revision
- Liposuction on waist, hips and inner and outer thighs
- Buttock augmentation
Now here’s what doctors have to say about your plastic surgery addiction, Heidi!
Heidi, your obsession with plastic surgery is out of control! We barely recognize you, and we’re worried about what will happen to you if you don’t stop going under the knife so compulsively. Not only is it physically dangerous, but that fact you were ashamed to be seen in recovery by Spencer, shows a weakness in your relationship.
“She has no self-esteem and doesn’t know what relationships are all about,” says psychologist Dr. David Eigen, author of Women: The Goddesses of Wisdom and Men: The Gods of Love. “It’s important that [Spencer] support her, and if she’s so insecure about who she is internally, I can see this is a seriously damaged person.”
You say your decision to get everything done at once is just a sign of your personality, but Manhattan-based aesthetic surgeon Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc urges you not to be so rash in the future. He recommends his patients make gradual changes to themselves to avoid cramming drastic procedures into one extensive day of surgery. “Nothing in excess is good,” Dr. Lorenc says. “It has to be rational.”
And do you realize how much upkeep you’ll need to do on your procedures? Dr. Neil Sadick, a clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, says you’ll probably need to be getting Botox injections every 4 to 6 months and the fat injections will likely need to be touched up every one to three years.
Not to mention, you’re only 23! Dr. Lorenc agrees that Botox isn’t a good idea for women with no wrinkle lines on their forehead — and the last time we checked, you were wrinkle-free.
Dr. Eigen says you need to stop focusing on changing your body (or your “shell,” as you refer to it) and start making some serious adjustments to your attitude. You need to accentuate what you like about yourself in the inside, or no one else will. “I see this as a sign of the death of her soul and of her becoming a narcissistic caricature,” Dr. Eigen says.
Heidi says she was an ugly duckling before her plastic surgery. Do you agree?
