Heidi Montag Admits That Her Surgery Obsession Killed Her Marriage

Just weeks after her plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, was killed in a freak car accident and a month after filing for divorce from Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag is stepping forward to talk about how unhappy she is with her plastic surgery and how the extreme procedures ruined her marriage. Among some of the indignities she’s sharing—apparently Spencer had to pull her underwear and pants down in order for her to go to the bathroom.

“Spencer begged me not to get the first surgery and it almost broke up our relationship,” she said.

“Then he begged me not to get the second one and it did break our relationship. It was just so much pressure. No one wants to be taking care of his wife — who looks like she was in a horrific accident — 24 hours a day, when he begged her not to do it in the first place. Spencer didn’t sign up for this in our marriage.” [Life & Style via Huffington Post]

Meanwhile, photos of Heidi’s face looking semi-normal appeared on the interwebs early today. Except that in the photos, she clearly has a bandage on her nose, which led Radar to speculate that she’d gotten another nose job. But that is not the case. Here’s how Heidi explains it:

“Except for filming and a few photo shoots, I’ve had my nose tape on 24 hours a day since November. It takes a year for your nose to heal. The last time I didn’t wear tape after surgery, my nose changed shape. The tape is supposed to hold my nose in place the way Dr. Ryan sculpted it. Dr. Ryan always said I was his best, most cautious patient, and I’m not taking any chances now that he’s gone. I don’t want my face to fall off like Michael Jackson’s.” [Radar]

But one thing Heidi doesn’t want to keep the way Dr. Ryan sculpted it? Her chest.

“I’m desperate to go back to normal. I’m downgrading and going a little smaller, to a D or a double D. I was taking painkillers but they weren’t working, so I stopped. It hurt either way. I’m obsessed with fitness, but it’s impossible to work out with these boobs. It’s heartbreaking. I can’t live an everyday life. I feel trapped in my own body. There’s just no fixing it. Dr. Ryan knows the work he did, he knows everything.” [Radar]

Let this be a warning to anyone out there considering extreme plastic surgery. It’s a long fall from “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life,” which is what Heidi said right after her surgeries, to “I don’t want my face to fall off like Michael Jackson’s” and “I feel trapped in my own body.” Sheesh.
