Heidi Montag doesn't do a thing without "career" implications in mind, and her 10 plastic surgeries in one day are no exception, says the doctor who did them.
The reality star's transformation has shocked the world (or at least celebrity gossip sites), but her surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan calls it a “well thought out career move.”
Ryan says the Heidi Montag plastic surgery bonanza came about because Mrs. Spencer Pratt felt self-conscious about her out-sticking ears and protruding chin.
She was also motivated by the desire to look her best to excel in show business, an industry that, too often, focuses too much attention on style vs. substance.
"I couldn’t have done that," Ryan said. "Sitting down there with the wisdom of someone older and thinking: 'What is it I really need to do to propel my career?'"
"Is it right or wrong to use plastic surgery to propel your career? I don’t know. But since Marilyn Monroe and back, its been happening, so that was her decision."
Ryan also Radar Online that Montag’s husband, the incomparable Spencer Pratt, was Heidi's rock when it came to supporting his wife in her bold decision.
"I think Heidi was 100 percent essentially, and Spencer was plus minus about it," Ryan said. "But he wanted to support her because he really loves her."
The doctor said he believes The Hills starlet's decision making was sound.
"Liposuction and breast surgery go on in great numbers," he said. "Heidi is 23 [and] has been voting for five years. She is an adult, she made an informed decision, she made a good call as an adult ... dads are really anti-breast implants."
"The reaction is either that they want to support their daughter or son getting plastic surgery, or saying, 'Honey, you are perfect just the way you are.'"
Was she more perfect before or after? Tell us! Heidi looked better ...
