Plastic surgery queen Heidi Montag recently revealed plans to head to Costa Rica for more plastic surgery. But new evidence seems to show she’s already been there and done that.
24-year old Heidi Montag underwent a drastic 10 procedures last year (See Make Me Heal’s story on Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery) and has been talking about her a nose job revision, chin reduction, mini brow lift, botox in forehead and frown area, fat injections in cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips, neck liposuction, ears pinned back, liposuction on waist, hips and inner and outer thighs, buttock augmentation and breast augmentation revision ever since then.
Recently Heidi revealed in an interview that she is planning to go to Costa Rica to revise some of her plastic surgery. But new photos from Radar online, which show Heidi with surgical tape on her nose seem to indicate that Heidi has been under the knife yet again.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “It is possible Heidi Montag had additional work performed to her nose. Whether or not she decides to have work performed in Costa Rica is a personal decision.”
“Except for filming and a few photo shoots, I’ve had my nose tape on 24 hours a day since November,” she tells Life & Style. “It takes a year for your nose to heal. This is just the first photo that anyone has seen of it.”
“The last time I didn’t wear tape after surgery and my nose changed shape,” she explains. “The tape is supposed to keep the swelling down and 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.”
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia explains, ” Heidi Montag has been seen in Costa Rica with Steri-strips on her nose talking about an implant exchange (to a smaller size.) Could she have had another nose job? Well of course. She told the Huffington Post that she was wearing the nasal strips under the direction of her late plastic surgeon Frank Ryan presumably for support after her surgery with him, but while this is possible, it is not likely. Steri-strips are wound closure support strips used by plastic surgeons for at the most weeks in the majority of cases. They are much more commonly used on fresh surgical wounds.”
“The bottom when you see steri-strips in that there is a high likelihood that someone is protecting an open wound or has had recent surgery.”
“Heidi needs to slow down. She seems to be in a rush to get to Michael Jackson “massively operated” status which is a shame. I liked her original improvement of 2007 and indicated at the time that I felt she was best served leaving well enough alone.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Heidi has definitely had a Rhinoplasty/ nose job done. Whether it was done in Costa Rica verses some other country I cannot say. I have to say from experience of treating many patients of “ foreign plastic surgeries gone wrong”, that you should have your procedure performed in a relatively close proximity of where you live or at least will remain during the first stages of your recovery should an issue arise. I believe if Heidi chooses to undergo plastic surgery in a foreign country is most likely for fear of privacy and paparazzi reasons.”
Makemeheal.com still thinks that Heidi needs to see a psychiatrist rather than a plastic surgeon the next time she feels the need to visit a medical office.
