THE HILLS: New Beginnings star Heidi Montag has made her big Hollywood return after first appearing in front of cameras as Lauren Conrad’s best friend-turned-enemy back in 2006.
The mom of one has always been very open about her plastic surgery journey and how she regrets it now, ten years later.
BABY-FACED CALI GIRL
Heidi first stepped in front of the cameras when she was just 20 years old after meeting Lauren at university.
At the time, Heidi sported hooded eyes and a fuller face.
She was always rocking the perfect tan and stunning dirty blonde hair.
GETTING USED TO THIS
By 2007, Heidi was a regular in The Hills where fans got to see her once strong relationship with Lauren dissolve when she began dating Spencer Pratt.
Heidi remained the same, except for losing weight due to the pressure of celebrity.
After falling out with Lauren, Heidi ran off and reportedly eloped with Spencer – though the media has yet to uncover the papers to confirm.
She also began to modify her looks as she switched up her hair to her now-staple platinum blonde.
At the time, her lips seemed plumper and had left behind the tan.
In 2010, Heidi shocked fans when she underwent ten surgeries in just one day, completely transforming her look.
The reality TV star revealed she got Botox, a brow lift, fillers, fat transfer, liposuction, a nose job, a boob job, a chin reduction, butt augmentation, and she had her ears pinned back.
Despite her being slammed for looking so different, she told PEOPLE at the time: “I think I look way better and I’m way happier.
“Nobody ages perfectly, so I plan to keep using surgery to make me as perfect as I can be.”
Three years after her surgeries, Heidi admitted that she sometimes regretted having so many things done at once.
However, she still flaunted her curves in see-through dresses and plunging necklines.
It was also around this time that it was claimed that undergoing so many surgeries had destroyed her career.
In 2017, Heidi and Spencer welcomed their first child together, a son they called Gunner.
At the time, the couple were outcasts from Hollywood and were dubbed superficial and problematic.
‘I HATE IT’
Heidi opened up about her surgeries and admitted that she almost died from the procedures.
She told Cosmopolitan that the only reason she got the ten surgeries was that she felt pressured after being the constant target of online bullying.
“I was also on TV where every perceived flaw is amplified,” she said.
“I think I looked in the mirror a little too much. I wish I had waited and not made a decision so young because I have long-term health complications.”
In 2020, it was announced The Hills would film a new season with Heidi as part of the cast.
At the time Heidi seemed like she’d left the surgeries behind.
However, Heidi underwent surgery once more as she revealed her struggles to get pregnant with the couple’s second child.
She spoke out after a series of pap pictures had fans believing she was pregnant – but she shut the comments down immediately.
She tweeted out: “No I am not pregnant yet. Just a little overweight.”
