Last season on The Hills, Heidi was a woman on a mission — she wanted to start a family with new hubby Spencer!
After finally marrying longtime BF Spencer Pratt in Nov. 2008, Heidi Montag moved onto her next goal: making babies! And when Spencer told her he wasn’t ready to be a dad, she went behind his back and stopped taking her birth control pills! On the fifth season finale of The Hills, which aired back in Dec. 2009, Spencer finally decided to man up, telling Heidi, “I’ll have kids at some point when we’re both ready. I want what you want — you’re my wife.” Of course, this was all before Heidi decided to totally change her body through plastic surgery, getting 10 incredible procedures in one sitting! HollywoodLife.com consulted several physicians to find out of Heidi’s new obsession will put an end to her old dream.
And it sounds like good news for Heidi!
“I don’t believe any of her cosmetic surgery precludes having a baby or makes it more dangerous,” says Dr. Sam S. Rizk, Director of Manhattan Facial Plastic Surgery in NYC. “Even the huge breast implants should not be an obstacle, other than they may be too difficult for a baby to breastfeed on.”
And even though she might have trouble smiling at her newborn baby, it doesn’t sound like Heidi’s facelifts would affect her ability to carry a baby to full term, either. “Certainly her facial work does not interfere with her having a baby,” Dr. Rizk continues. “Her body may and will change, however, and of course with gaining weight, she will have stretching of skin.”
If Heidi does become pregnant, she won’t need to follow any additional precautions as a result of her surgeries, according to New York-based dermatologist Neil Sadick, MD, FAAD, FAACS, FACP, FACPh.
“I have extensive experience with patients who have undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries, and none have had difficulties with fertility or carrying to term,” New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Yager tells us. “This includes my patients who have undergone abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) surgery.”
As for actually giving birth to her child, New Jersey-based plastic surgeon Dr. Nagy says Heidi would only run into trouble if she wants to have a C-section, due to her tummy tucks. Dr. Nagy recommends a natural birth — and for once, we hope Heidi decides to keep things natural!
Well there you have it, Heidi — our experts all agree that you’re still able to have the family with Spencer that you’ve always dreamed of! This is great news for you! We can’t wait to watch you continue your struggle on the final season of The Hills, starting at 10 p.m. TONIGHT on MTV!
