  • Heidi Montag has learned a lot from her considerable time under the knife. Now she’s sharing her knowledge of plastic surgery recovery with her fans via Twitter.

    23-year old Heidi Montag famously underwent a startling 10 procedures in one day late last year(See Make Me Heal’s story on Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery). Since then, the platinum blond Barbie has been doing nothing but talking about her plastic surgery, loving and hating each body transformation. Recently, Heidi Twittered about the maintenance of aftercare plastic surgery.

    On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn analyzed Heidi’s Tweets one by one:

    Warning: to anyone who is thinking about getting their ears pinned, I learned after the fact it is the most painful surgery a person can get. Dr. Youn says, “Untrue. I’ve performed this surgery many times and pain is almost never an issue. A tummy tuck or breast augmentation is much more painful than an otoplasty (ear pinback).”

    “Giving my self a soft tissue breast massage. Ladies we have to keep those implants soft,” Dr. Youn says, “True. I have all my breast implant patients massage their breasts as a way to help keep the scar tissue and implants soft. Unfortunately, scientific studies don’t support this helping, but most plastic surgeons recommend their patients do it anyway.”

    “I had a nightmare that I slept without my nose tape on thank God it wasn’t true!” Dr. Youn says, “Huh? THAT’s a nightmare? Geez, my nightmares are more about driving off a cliff or finding myself in school without any pants on.”

    Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “I think the only medical advice a person should listen to is from their doctor or surgeon. No two people are the same therefore advice, treatment and diagnoses will not be the same. Unfortunately, Heidi’s surgeon did not advise her to refrain from multiple procedures and excessively large breast implants so there comes a time when you ultimately must decide for yourself what seems right for you.”

    Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., says, “The degree to which an individual should give plastic surgery advice should be limited to describing their own personal experiences. Any advice beyond that should come from a medical professional that specializes in plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is an individual decision, and individuals should base their decision to have plastic surgery performed on their own personal goals, and advice they receive from a medical professional who has their best interests in mind.”

    Makemeheal.com recommends taking Heidi’s advice with a grain of salt and a phone call to your own plastic surgeon.

      I agree with Dr. Youn regarding the ear pinning. I had the procedure done (well, kinda sort of) to get cartilage from my ear to put on my nose, and it was more painful and annoyoing than some procedures it wasn’t the MOST painful by any means. Talking on the phone on that ear was uncomfortable, and I can imagine if both ears were cut it would have been even worse. There are many other procedures that have hurt worse than an otoplasty for sure.

      Heidi Montag is certainly having some trouble understanding her own boundaries. On another note, sometimes taking the cartilage from your ear to use it in the nose sometimes is simply the only option as opposed one of many, therefore discomfort may not be necessarily prevented by attempting to grab cartilage from somewhere else.

      Thanks

      Ear pinning cannot be compared to ear cartilage removal. I’ve had both ears pinned in 2006 and not only am I happy with the result, there was very little discomfort. Although the area behind the ears stayed sensitive for around 5 months when showering (with my back to the shower head) only, otherwise it’s perfect with no scarring.
