In an interview in the August 2010 issue of Life & Style magazine, The Hills reality show star (and possible sex tape co-star), Heidi Montag, announced her desire to have her G cup breast implants reduced to a paltry D or DD.
As a 23 year old reality show star who’s s essentially famous for being famous, Heidi’s decisions will be more impetuous than that of the average young woman. By opting out of future breast augmentation, though, she may be preventing more than backaches from a top-heavy front.
Take the story of Shayla Hershey, a woman with 38KK breast implants, the world’s largest, according to the Brazilian version of the Guinness Book of World Records. After 30 plastic surgeries without major problems, a FoxNews report stated that Hershey developed staph infections in both breasts after her latest procedure. Hopefully, Heidi’s breast reduction surgery (if she goes through with it), won’t be as risky as breast augmentation.
This sudden change of mind is complicated by the untimely death of Heidi’s plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan. He drove off a cliff in Malibu, allegedly while tweeting about his dog, according to the San Francisco Gate’s Hot Topics column. So she’ll have to start fresh with another doctor.
Whether celebrities or not, people need to realize that there are repercussions when you to cosmetic surgeries (beside looking like a space alien.) Now if you look at a before picture of Heidi, she was a very pretty, photogenic girl. But pretty or even beautiful is out in many Hollywood circles. The garden variety “pouting porn star with humongous boobs” look is still popular, even for non-strippers/XXX stars.
As a society, I wonder if we have any real conception n of beauty anymore. If young girls in general have been inundated with images of Photoshopped, big-boobed bimbos since junior high, you can imagine what it’s like to be a young female star in Hollywood with little verifiable talent. Extreme plastic surgery seems to be a easiest way to keep your picture on TMZ and other entertainment sites, but at what cost?
Maybe Heidi could have furthered her career with more singing lessons or quality time working on her fashion line, and less plastic surgery. It would have been cheaper and less painful, that’s for sure.
