Heidi Montag, 23, has had ten plastic surgery procedures done (breast implants increased to DDDs, a brow lift, a nose job revision, lipo on her stomach and thighs and a butt augmentation, and other things, too) in one day. The reality star began her career on MTV, and told People Magazine that she never liked the way she looked on the show.
"I do love it and I appreciate it and I appreciate the science behind it," she told NY Daily News. "We [are] blessed to even have this surgery that we have. We're so advanced. If Cleopatra were alive now, I'm sure she'd have triple D's ... there's always been a struggle between pain and beauty. I feel like since the beginning of time." (NY Daily News). Montag touches upon some truth in this statement, highlighting the power of the allure of the feminine facade. Now, with shows like Niptuck, the idea of creating perfection has become a fantastical but obtainable ideal.
