Heidi Montag: A plastic surgery “addict”

Rate This

She is just 23 years old and by any standard she was gorgeous already. This star of "The Hills", Heidi Montag is long, lean, blonde, and had underwent surgery at 20 years old to have breast implants.

This week Montag will be on the cover of People magazine in a “reveal” that probably sets some sort of record – she underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures all at once in a quest to be “perfect.”

Yes. That’s right, 10. Included in the list of procedures were an increase in breast size to DDDs, a brow lift, Botox injections in various places, fat injections in various places, a chin reduction, a nose job revision, liposuction on her stomach and thighs, and a butt augmentation. She also had her ears pinned back, an issue that apparently has pained Montag since she was a child.

"For the past three years I've thought about what to have done," Montag told People magazine. "I'm beyond obsessed.”

“And so, on Nov. 20, Montag's total transformation began. Keeping even her family in the dark, the starlet chronicled every painful moment of recovery and her journey to become 'the best me.' ”

Newsweek magazine writers Sarah Ball and Jessica Bennett got a preview of the People magazine article. Their piece, titled “Heidi Montag, version 3.0,” goes on to detail 11 things that bother them about the actress’ plastic surgery marathon.

We can think of at least that many. But we’ll let Ball and Bennett have the podium for a minute:

“6. Apparently This Is Normal. (At Least in Hollywood.)
We've grown up on pop culture that screams that everything is a candidate for improvement. We've watched bodies transformed on Extreme Makeover; faces taken apart and pieced back together on I Want a Famous Face. We dissect Demi Moore's Photoshopped body on the cover of W magazine and wonder how the 47-year-old mother, even before the airbrushing, could possibly look so good. Meanwhile, statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show that cosmetic-surgery procedures performed on those 18 and younger have nearly doubled over the past decade, while nearly 14 percent of Botox injections are given to those in the 19-to-34 age group, like Heidi.
