Heidi Montag's self-renovation

Heidi Montag isn’t one to lie about her cosmetic surgery, says Jennifer Garcia in People. “I am absolutely beyond obsessed,” says the 23-year-old aspiring singer and star of MTV’s reality series The Hills. “It’s part of the Heidi 2010 reinvention.” So in November, she underwent 10 separate procedures in a 10-hour session. In addition to a brow-lift and a botox treatment on her forehead, Montag got her ears pinned back, her cheeks and lips injected with fat, and her buttocks augmented. She also had a chin reduction and two separate liposuctions—one on her neck and one on her waist, hips, and thighs. To round things out, she touched up the boob and nose jobs she had back in 2007. Skeptics would diagnose her with body dysmorphic disorder—an extreme preoccupation with a perceived flaw in one’s appearance—but Montag insists that she’s just being realistic. “Think about the industry I’m trying to go into. My ultimate dream is to be a pop star. I’m competing against the Britney Spearses of the world—and when she was in her prime, it was her sex appeal that sold. Obviously, looks matter; it’s a superficial industry.” If anyone has a problem with that, she says, too bad. “We all want to feel attractive. So who is anyone to judge me? I’m already planning my next surgery.”
