Heidi Montag Wants to Remove Her Huge Breast Implants

Plastic Surgery Is a Pain in the Chest For Heidi Montag

Heidi Montag is using plastic surgery to gain attention again, but this time it's her desire to remove her enormous breast implants making headlines. Explaining that she feels trapped in her body, she tells Life & Style: "I'm desperate to go back to normal. I'm downgrading and going a little smaller, to a D or a double D. . . . I have major anxiety about it. I was taking painkillers but they weren't working so I stopped. It hurt either way."

The 23-year-old reality star underwent an unusual number of procedures, but she isn't the first woman to experience regret from plastic surgery. One psychologist who helps women make healthy choices about cosmetic surgery says she advises women to consider the acronym SAFE: safety, affordability, for whom, and expectations. By being honest with yourself about the reasons and risks behind a procedure you can prevent going down a slippery slope of irreversible and dangerous work.

Have you ever considered plastic surgery? How did you make your decision?

I love how she wants to return to "normal." I don't think she was ever a DD, how is that "normal" for her?

I had a breast reduction 3 months ago and I will say it is HANDS DOWN the best thing I have ever done. Plastic surgery is not for everyone. It's so very important to do your research, see as many doctors as you can, and really think about how your body will be afterward. I was so uncomfortable in my own skin. My weight has been up and down for many years and my breasts were always too big for my frame. It was effecting my health and my self-confidence. I am now adjusting to this new body of mine and I own every bit of it. I love shopping and my back doesn't ache anymore! :)To those who are considering, just make sure the doctor is known for their good work and ask as many questions as you possibly can. Make sure this is the best decision for YOU and only YOU!

I busted my nose a couple times and would love to get it done just to go back to the way it was, I've also got a whole slew scars I wouldn't mind removing.I also have fat fingers, even when I weighed less than 100 lbs (at 5'6) they were fat, though I guess if my biggest complaint is my fat fingers I don't have much to complain about. I still feel self-conscious about them though.I might get my boobs done when I'm older, for now though I'm pretty fond of my perky little 34 Bs.As for Heidi, I don't think she'll ever be happy with her body.

oh, PS - yeah Heidi, big boobs can equal big pain, especially on a small person like yourself - didn't you do your research and find that out before you decided to get huge boobs??? (I'm guessing no)

I used to be about 40 lbs overweight, and it looked like all my extra weight was in my boobs! So, I thought about getting a breast reduction, but never very seriously. I don't think I would have considered it seriously unless I gained a lot more weight. I ended up losing 40 lbs, and that worked as a breast reduction, so I'll probably never consider any plastic surgery.

I had my boobs done in 2006. I went from a 32A to a 36B/32C (it depends on the bra). I went to a surgeon that a friend recommended for me. I was very happy with my results because they're not too big or too small for my petite body.

I wouldn't do it. Even if I had the money. I had friends die over a bad plastic surgery procedure. I have learned to except myself the way I am.

^ I feel the same way, Pistil... but, unfortunately, there is always someone willing to do whatever it takes to make a buck. No doctor with a conscience would have done the procedures Heidi had done in one sitting. It's extremely unsafe and obviously the patient was under some kind of psychological distress (which, as anyone who has watched The Hills can tell you, is a pretty obvious answer [like Anon 2 said]).I would love to have a breast augmentation done and plan to when I can afford it. Otherwise, I am happy with myself. My chest is just something I wish was a little more proportionate to the rest of my features (I am pear-shaped and having a fuller chest would make me more hourglass). It's something I have thought of for years. And I'm definitely not going for the Heidi look!

I think some people do it to blend in, and others do it to absurd proportions in order to stand out. I suppose one is more sensible than the other, though I don't like the idea that "normal" is some kind of strict category that you must fit into.I can't say I feel sorry for her. There must be some kind of psychological assessment for potential plastic surgery patients (especially for the extensive surgery she had done). I can't imagine she would have passed.

Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and start wondering "what would my face look like with a thinner nose" or "would I look better with bigger boobs" but then I look more closely and realize that I do like my body the way it is. I'm working everyday to improve it and keep it healthy the natural way. I'm not perfect but I don't think I look bad either. And what I thought was a big flaw when I was younger (I got kind of a bigger butt for my short height and petite silhouette) is something I find now being an asset for me (after having many compliments about it). My husband loves me the way I am also, so no I wouldn't consider getting plastic surgery.
