It seems that even Heidi Montag is tired of plastic surgery. In a recent appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Hills star revealed she is done with plastic surgery.
Late last year, 23-year old Heidi Montag underwent 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.

Since then, many have criticized her appearance, although Heidi has been open still wanting to make her breasts even bigger. But for now, she says she will have to stop, due to legal restrictions.
Heidi says, “I legally can’t right now. The limit is 800cc and I have 700cc.”
“I think I’ve reached the point [where I can stop],” she added. “I think I’m good for awhile. I’m surger-ied out.”
New York plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, ” Heidi currently has 700cc silicone implants, but the maximum fill on breast implants made in the U.S. by the two manufacturers that are allowed to do so by the FDA is 800cc. She would have to go out of the country to get implants bigger than 700cc, which would not be the best idea.”
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “ There is not a legal cap on the amount of plastic surgery a person can have. However; there could be a malpractice issue if a surgeon operated on a patient that was not the best candidate both physically and emotionally. Each time you operate on an area, there is a greater chance of complications and of poor healing. One example is Michael Jackson’s and his multiple nose surgeries.”
In the same interview, Heidi also denied being addicted to plastic surgery, saying, “I don’t think I am addicted,” she said. “When you’re addicted, you have to do it every day, and thank God I don’t do it everyday … I like to do it all in one day … knock it out.”
She said she is still recovering from the procedures. “It’s excruciating,” she said, “but beauty is pain.”
Makemeheal.comcom is hoping this means Heidi’s quest to be a human Barbie doll is finally over, but we suspect there is still some drama left in The Hills.
