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.
