The scoop on Heidi Montag's plastic surgery
Heidi Montag is, as it were, scarred for life. All of that plastic surgery she had back in November 2009 has left her unable to jog and even unwilling to hug other people because of her fragility.
Montag called into Ryan Seacrest's dippy radio show yesterday to
milk this surgery thing for more free PR provide some new insights about her surgical transformation. As if the 10 procedures we already knew about (everything from rhinoplasty to a boob job) weren't enough, Montag also told Seacrest she had her "back scooped."
What is a back scoop? Turns out Montag isn't quite sure, but thinks maybe she is the first
victim one to try it and that it has something to do with carving out one's back for a more shapely figure. And, hey, it went along with her "waist cinching" procedure. Which matches her new boobs. Which, in turn, really goes with that new strapless dress.
But according to Dr. Alan Matarasso, a Manhattan plastic surgeon and spokesman for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Montag may be exaggerating a bit about her newly sculpted back.
"It may be her interpretation of a procedure we call liposuction of the back or the bra strap area," said Matarasso in a phone interview this morning. "It will often go from the hips up to the shoulders and is very popular now."
Usually, says Matarasso, it's done with a a vibrating "power suction" machine that breaks up the fat under the skin before sucking it out.
"[It's a] fairly quick procedure," said Matarasso. "Maybe 30 - 40 minutes."
As for Montag's claim that she didn't really know what the procedure was? Matarasso (who admits he's not familiar with Montag) is doubtful.
"You need separate consents for each procedure."
But shiny new plastic bodies aren't all fun and games. Montag laments the loss of some intimacies.
"I'm very weird about hugging people now," she told Seacrest. "[My body] is very fragile."
And, if you haven't totally lost your appetite yet, Montag also added that she has footage of all of her procedures and may air portions of it as part of a (hint hint, Hollywood producer types) future reality show.
Oddly, Montag didn't mention one word about her lobotomy.
