Heidi Montag's Botched Plastic Surgery Disaster
If you saw the above two photographs side-by-side and didn't know who Heidi Montag was, would you believe it was the same person? In recent years, Heidi has had so much work done that she isn't even comparable to her old self.
Heidi Montag, also known as Heidi Blair Pratt, was born September 15, 1986 in Colorado. She rose to fame in 2006 as one of the original cast members on the hit MTV show The Hills. It was during this time that Montag and her husband, Spencer Pratt, began receiving a lot of negative attention from the media. In 2010, she released an album, called Superficial, which failed to sell well. Even so, she continued on with her music career.
Along with music, she has appeared in numerous magazines such as Maxim and Playboy. She also had her own fashionline, called Heidiwood, but it was not a success and a contract with the fashion designer was not renewed after a year.
One notable publicity stunt between Heidi and Spencer was a divorce. The two decided to split in July 2010 with Heidi filing for divorce. However, it was speculated that the two were just trying to garner attention. In September 2010, the two canceled the divorce and got back together. Spencer claimed the couple decided to stage a divorce to help Heidi's career.
Her very first procedure was a simple breast augmentation in April of 2007. It wasn't until 2012 that Heidi began to show dramatic change in her appearance and came out to People magazine about her entirely new look. In the interview, she claimed she had 10 procedures done in a single day and said she is "obsessed" with plastic surgery.
The work she had done in November of 2009, two months before her People magazine interview, included brow-lifts, chin reduction, ear pinnings, a nose job and another breast augmentation. She admitted that she nearly died from Demerol during her surgeries, having lost her breath. Even so, she said that almost dying from going under the knife was "worth it."
In December 2010, she was interviewed by Life & Style magazine. In the interview she gave details about scars caused by all the surgery she had done.
