Heidi Montag “addicted to plastic surgery”

Heidi Montag before and after

At the grocery store over the weekend, I couldn’t help but grab a copy of People to look at Heidi Montag‘s latest surgical transformation.

I don’t need to add to the chorus of people shouting about how horrifying this is (even as we give her credit for owning up to the procedures, as well as her PR genius). What I will touch on, however, is how this all adds up to one great big beauty mistake. In case you were wondering, it’s NEVER a good idea to:

  • Inflate your breasts to porn star proportions. (The new ones are size DDD, and she wants to go bigger.) Look at Kate Hudson—is she any less attractive with her tiny A-cups?
  • Ditto for the lips. If you’ve got naturally thin lips, work ‘em. (What do you think all those plumping lip glosses are for?) Injecting them with filler looks fake and cheap.
  • Get Botox at age 23. I know Heidi lives in sunny California, but come on. Do you really have wrinkles at age 23?
  • Let a surgeon give you a brow lift. Some of us have naturally arched brows. Crafting them on those who don’t is just plain creepy.
  • Dabble too much in cheek injections, or worse, cheek implants. While I understand the motivation behind the cheek work (it gives them more of a feminine curve, whereas before, she looked a bit mannish), this is a slippery slope. Playing around too much with this stuff ends up masculinizing females and feminizing men. Here, it’s sort of gone into tranny territory, no?

The whole thing is just sad, because if you go back and watch Season One episodes of The Hills, Heidi was really quite cute and attractive—much more so than Lauren.

What do you think about Heidi’s $30,000 worth of plastic surgery?

I think its really disappointing that someone so young feels the need to change herself so much. She was absolutely gorgeous before now she just looks like every other young hollywood starlet. Its pretty sad.

I think she looks good, but dont you think shes aged herself more by accident?
it might just be me, but im sure she looks like a really good looking mum or something, I also think she has a small look of teri hatcher in her now, I wish she would of left herself alone, but it will be interesting to see how she blends in with the hills now with her “upgrade”, especially if she looks older than the majority of the cast but maybe its just me thinking that

I agree Thomas – she’s definitely aged herself. And I do detect a bit of Teri Hatcher. It’s the hardened look to her face – too angular. Not to mention those terrible eyebrows…

I agree. She looked younger on the ‘before’ pic…

i’m 34 years old, 5’6″, 150-ish lbs and i’m pretty cute, i have a fairly healthy self-image but would still feel a little uncomfortable, on a bad day, standing next to a gorgeous girl like this in a bikini on the beach… HOW SHE WAS BEFORE!!! with charachter in her eyes and smile she was memorable, to me atleast, i thought she was freaking adorable… to look at anyways, and now i look at her and there is nothing about her that i’d remember. NOTHING! i’d stand next to the “new” heidi in a bikini while i was bloated after a huge break-up and still feel like i looked better, cuter, more attractive because i’ve got unique-ness. she took away her cute! girls don’t understand that our little imperfections are what make us attractive. if it’s going to make a huge difference in how confident you are about yourself then ya, go for it, after alot of thought. but perfect is ridiculous… in whose eyes? guaranteed you’re perfect in somebody’s eyes. feel good about you, if you don’t, figure out why and work on it… but inside, not under a knife or knives. confidence is sexier than anything you can put on or take off or augment or whatever.

Very well said, Dani! Thanks for the comment – it IS the imperfections that make you beautiful. These plastic surgeons with a God complex scare me.

I think Heidi’s surname suits her well she is a “Pratt”, how and why would you do that to yourself.
How can you change the image you had (that you was given) to abuse it the way she has.
It is sick……!

You know, if she keeps this up, she could be the new Daryl Hannah.

Because we couldn’t get enough horse-face to begin with. If anything was wrong in the first place, it was her mannish chin. She managed to nip and tuck everything except. She kinda has a “Chet YouBetcha” thing going on. Personally, I think she should go bigger with the boobs. That way, she wont be able to see herself over them. If she can’t see her face, she wont know whether it’s perfect or not.

I would say that she’s fortunate that she hasn’t had any real mishaps in any of her many procedures. To me, she looks very good overall but she didn’t look all that bad before which perplexes me. Why did she have all these procedures when she’s only 23? Perhaps, I cruise the web too much but I often see women in public — especially those who use lots of peroxide and saline — and the thought of porn actress comes to mind.
