Heidi Montag’s dr: surgeries smart career move, won’t enlarge breasts

Heidi Montag sort-of shocked people when she emerged after a whole couple of months with a brand new face and giant painful-looking boobs. She told People Magazine that she was “obsessed” and “addicted” to plastic surgery, a claim she later denied as she went on multiple celebrity shows to premiere her new generic face and promote her album that flopped fantastically.

Heidi’s doctor appeared with her on Good Morning America to defend his decision to perform 10 operations on the 23 year-old “singer” at once. He said that the risks were minimal because Heidi was so young and healthy. Then Heidi told Access Hollywood that she almost died during the recovery period when her breathing slowed dramatically. Her doctor countered that if Heidi had serious complications, it “didn’t happen as far as I know.”

Now Heidi’s doctor is promoting his willingness to warp anyone into an older, plastic-looking clone in a serious of interviews with Radar Online. He told the gossip site that Heidi’s surgeries were a “smart career move,” but added in another segment that he wouldn’t enlarge Heidi’s enormous boobs past their current double-D state. Heidi has said that she wants unmanageable size “H” boobs that would match her first initial.

Reality TV star Heidi Montag’s ten plastic surgeries in one day shocked America — and now, speaking out for the first time, her surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan exclusively told RadarOnline.com that the stunning 23-year-old had the procedures done not only to enhance her appearance but also as part of a “well thought out career move.”

Ryan told us that Heidi decided to undergo drastic plastic surgery because she felt self-conscious about her out-sticking ears and protruding chin; but he also reveals she was motivated by the desire to look her best to excel in show business, an industry that, too often, focuses too much attention on style vs. substance.

“I couldn’t have done that,” Ryan said of the ten surgeries in a day. “Sitting down there with the wisdom of someone much older and thinking: ‘What is it I really need to do to propel my career?’ Is it right or wrong to use plastic surgery to propel your career? I don’t know. [But] since Marilyn Monroe and back, its been happening left and right, so that was her decision.”

Ryan also told us Montag’s husband Spencer Pratt was Heidi’s rock when it came to supporting his wife in her bold decision.

“I think Heidi was 100 percent essentially, and Spencer was plus minus about it,” Ryan said. “He wanted to support her because he really loves her — they are both a really loving couple — that frankly the public doesn’t know they are truly devoted to one another and loving, but he loves his wife and agreed to do it.”

In response to an exclusive report by RadarOnline.com detailing Montag’s father, Bill, being concerned for his daughter’s well-being, Ryan — who has performed as many as 20 surgeries on a patient in a single day — said he believes The Hills starlet’s decision making was sound.

“Liposuction and breast surgery goes on in great numbers,” he said. “Heidi is 23-years-old [and] has been voting for five years — she is an adult, she made an informed decision, she made a good call as an adult … dads are really anti-breast implants for their daughter actually, so the reaction is they want to support their daughter or son getting plastic surgery, because they want to be there for them, or saying, ‘Honey, you are perfect the way you are.’

“Doesn’t surprise me, quite frankly,” Ryan said.

Heidi’s doctor seemed pretty convincing in the video, like he really believed that Heidi was of sound mind when she decided to have all those surgeries. He minimized the vast amount of work she had done, though, and just started by describing how she had her ears pinned back (“We do that for six year olds”) and how she wanted her chin to be smaller, which is a common request for women. He didn’t defend the eight other things she had done, like making her existing nosejob even smaller, getting even bigger breast implants, an eye lift, having neck lipo and stomach lipo etc. He said “I think Heidi looks absolutely spectacular. Phenomenol. You have to keep in mind that she’s just human it’s just two months.” He said she’s still healing, though.

Heidi scored the cover of People Magazine with her plastic surgery story. In that sense it may have been incredibly short-sighted but “smart” by some people’s estimates to age herself over 10 years with a bunch of surgery she didn’t need. The sh*tty album she was promoting sold less than 1,0000 copies, though, and she financed the production herself to the tune of over a million dollars. All that money wasted and all she got was a much older face.

    If your career is nothing more than being a media whore who does and says stupid things to make people talk about her, then yes, this was a good career move.

  2. Jano says:

    thought we were not going to “feed” this chick with attention?

    Oh sorry that’s another site…

  3. Green Is Good says:

    This trick wasted all that money, and she still looks like Mr. Ed in drag. Puke.

  4. tiki says:

    i know i’m in the minority (as in the only one), but i feel very badly for this young woman. she has serious image issues, and that usually doesn’t end well. i believe something tragic will happen to her in the next few years. sad.

  5. Bonfire Beach says:

    The surgeon looks really young, like he just got out of med school.

  6. Novaraen says:

    She looks like sh*t. A little chin shaving would have done her a-okay…the rest was unnecessary.

  7. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow…when I first saw the screen cap of the doc at the top, I thought it was Jason Bateman!

  8. Novaraen says:

    Oh and who does lipo on a 23 year old girl who is already size 4???

  9. Kerri says:

    I think she wasted money on doing lipo on her neck cause it looks the same to me. And maybe one month in the gym would have costed less and given her the same results of getting lipo to her stomach.

    Regarding her face, I hope when she looks in the mirror she sees the person she thinks she should look like because she looks nothing like she did before.

    I am also curious as to how her butt looks – only because it is reported that she got butt augmentation and no-one has shown a pic with her butt looking any different.

    Further, if Spencer is so behind Heidi in all this, why hasn’t he been making the rounds on all these talk shows with her and showing that he is truly there for her, especilly when she is being attacked by so many media outlets.

  10. Sumodo says:

    I think it’s time to ban Heidi from the site unless something awful happens to her. Again.

  11. Granger says:

    What baffles me is the EYE LIFT. What 23-year-old needs an eye lift? Isn’t that something normally reserved for 50-somethings whose lids are starting to droop? (If you’ve seen It’s Complicated, you’ll know where I’m coming from!)

  12. Sigh. says:

    The “smart career move” was this doctor’s poking and hacking at this dead-eyed girl.

    Just IMAGINE the extra revenue he’s about to generate from all of the “smart career women” who are buying into all of this.

  13. Black~Kat says:

    @ Sumodo

  14. snowball says:

    Granger, I believe I read that Heidi had the eye lift because she wanted eyebrows like Angelina, the high arching ones. Or maybe that was the brow lift. Well, anyway, she had a totally unecessary procedure done just so she could change the shape of her eyebrows.

  15. dee says:

    I still LOL at talentless celebrities that have to resort to surgeries or other attention getting stunts b/c they realize they dont have enough talent to sell whatever they’re trying to sell. If you’re good at what you’re doing, you wouldnt need to do this stuff or the other stupid stunts they do to keep their names in the paper.

  16. Stella says:

    I agree with Sumodo- time to reinstate the ban. This chick clearly has problems and by giving her attention we are only encouraging her to mess herself up more and have more “procedures”.

  17. Trillion says:

    I know what this site is about, duh, but I just gotta get this off my chest: Why is time wasted on whats-her-latest-face when there are so many amazing, intelligent, creative, daring girls and women who are making the world a better and more interesting place? Every time I open Bust magazine (no, I don’t work for them I just think it’s the best chick’s magazine evah) and read about women from all corners doing rad things, it just pisses me off that they are working in obscurity when useless oxygen thieves like Heidi Montag are getting all this publicity while making the world worse.

  18. Alarmjaguar says:

    “WE DO THAT FOR 6-YEAR OLDS!?” WTF? What is this world coming to when parents are getting their 6 yr olds plastic surgery — basically telling them that they are not pretty enough AT AGE 6! No wonder there are so many f*cked up women out there…

  19. BELLE EPOCH says:

    @ Sigh – you nailed it. Dead-eyed girl is exactly right.

    If you see her in a video she keeps opening her mouth like she’s about to say something, but nothing comes out and she kinda closes it again. She looks like a fish gasping for air.

  20. padiddle says:

    this guy makes it seem as if it is a horrible thing for father’s to tell their daughters they are perfect the way they are!!
    No, in his eyes, support is allowing their low self esteem to run rampant and reinforcing the idea that you “support” (and by extension, agree with) the fact that they need triple d breasts, nose job, chin job etc. on and on
    I only wish Heidi’s father was able to be there for her BEFORE her self esteem sunk so low and she went to such drastic measures.

  21. EMV says:

    She looks worse not better. not to mention she should probably go to some rehab for self esteem issues. any real singer or performer would never elect to have surgery unless they had to for medical reasons or they knew their was no other way to heal….Heidi needs healing from the inside out not outside in. She will never be happy.

  22. La Cannuck says:

    Many celebs get re-made on there way to become famous… They don’t brag about it though. Are we on the path where ”regular people” start embracing this trend?

  23. kelbear says:

    I still will never like her, but I do feel really bad for her. She has ruined herself on the outside while it’s obvious she is damaged on the inside.

  24. elusive says:

    She should have used Megan Fox’s surgeon. He did a much better overhaul than this surgeon did on Heidi.

  25. For Sooth? says:

    Welcome to the over populated world of “Dumb Blonde”. The greatest populace per square mile resides in Hollywood. Which, in fact, makes her nothing special at all. Great career move Heidi, you have made it twice as hard to stand out. Except for your parasitic husband attached to your side, we wouldn’t know you from any other blonde waitress wannabe in Tinsel Town. Props.

  26. katyusha says:

    I’m wondering if the huge amounts of flak she receives is going to make her depressed. She seems to have this perpetual look of mourning on her face. Has she been photographed with a smile since the surgeries? She always looks permanently…sad.

  27. Camille says:

    I agree with Kelbear on this story.

  28. abigail7881 says:

    I’m sure all those six year olds are the ones you see on ‘Little Miss Perfect’, or whatever that show is about kiddie beauty pageants that ‘The Soup’ makes fun of.

  29. ViktoryGin says:

    @ La Cannuck, true, but the work is also subtle and doesn’t render them beyond recognition.

    Smart career movie or the surgeon, maybe. Thanks to her daftness, people now know who he is.

  30. Other Karen says:

    I think her old body looked far better.

    The new chin is an improvement, but it was also one of her defining features; she doesn’t look like Heidi anymore.

    I think the whole botox/lift thing is supposed to be started young so as you age, you age more slowly and faux-“gracefully”. Catherine Zeta-Jones was supposed to have had a subtle face lift right after “American Sweethearts” wrapped, but before they shot the new ending.
