Addicted to Plastic Surgery?

It seems these days people are "addicted" to anything and everything.  From the most common addictions such as alochol and drugs to the more modern addictions such as sex (Tiger Woods anyone?) to plastic surgery.  I'm here to talk about Heidi Montag, the girl from The Hills reality series on MTV.  She recently revealed her new look in People magazine after going under the knife for an unbelievable 10 procedures back in November 2009.

Now look, I can understand her first plastic surgery experience because she had just come to Hollywood where "everyone" is beautiful and she wanted to fit in.  So with a nose job and breast augmentation she turned into a beautiful young lady from what was already great genes.  This recent surgery has me a little concerned.  First of all she is only 23 years old, so the NEED for this many surgeries seems a little outragious.  I would like to note, however, that some of the procedures that are considered part of the 10 surgeries are really non-invasive procedures (botox and fillers).  But still, she did have 8 other surgeries that are a big deal.

I hate to admit it, but I do follow the drama that is Spencer and Heidi Pratt.  I just can't help myself.  That, in itself, is an addiction I have!  So if I did not know better, I would be supportive of her surgeries because if it is going to make herself feel better...to each their own.  However, I would not have had all surgeries performed in one setting.  Anyways, what I do know about Heidi and Spencer is that their plan in life is to be famous.  And with her records not selling and the reality show they star in having its days numbered, it seems this is yet just another tactic to keep themselves in the limelight for as long as possible.  I would say it is a little more than a coincedence that her plastic surgery story came out at the same time her second album dropped.  I do hope she did this for herself and nobody else.  But I have my doubts.
