Heidi Montag says dead doctor to blame for plastic surgery addiction


Dr. Frank Ryan is perhaps most famous for being the surgeon who performed the staggering 10 procedures on Heidi Montag in one day in November last year.

Prior to the series of surgeries, including a nose job, breast augmentation and a chin reduction, the starlet, of the Hills fame, told People Magazine: “For the past three years, I’ve thought about what to have done. I’m beyond obsessed.” The procedures were necessary, claimed Heidi, to become the “best me”.

When her surgeon Dr Frank Ryan died in a car accident earlier this year, Heidi had no shortage of kind words, tweeting that he was “the most amazing person” she had ever known and “the most brilliant talented surgeon” to ever exist.

But in an interview on TV special Primetime: Celebrity Plastic Surgery Gone to Far, it became apparent that the 24-year-old celebrity has had a change of heart. As reported by Daily Mail, she said she did not feel “prepared enough” for the operations and she pointed the finger at her late surgeon Dr Frank Ryan.

“Maybe I should have known,” the reality star said. “But how can you know when your doctor’s saying, ‘it’s just a little of this, it’s just a little of that?’ You know, it really becomes a lot.”

“I definitely think I should have been more informed,” she continued.

“I think that doctors should really walk you through all aspects of it, not just the glamorous side of it.

“Doctors, it’s like they’re selling you cookies or something.”

What do you think of the self-confessed plastic surgery addict blaming her doctor for letting her have so many procedures? Shouldn’t she take responsibility for her actions?
