Heidi Montag talks plastic surgery, bankruptcy and motherhood

Heidi Montag, who's more famous for her plastic surgeries than her reality TV career, won't allow her daughter to get extreme plastic surgery like she did.

“I would definitely advise against it,” Montag told Life & Style. “And hopefully I’d raise her in a way that she doesn’t feel the pressure or need.”

Heidi, 27, got breast implant-removal surgery in October 2013 to replace her F cups with C cups. She said the heavy implants (which weighed three pounds each) literally weighed her down, and kept her from being able to work out, run, and do sports.

"They felt like bowling balls on my chest," said Montag. "I couldn't conceptualize the weight of them in my body."

The massive implants were also the source of ongoing back, neck, and shoulder pain. Heidi also got alarmed after her doctor told her they were dropping.

"He told me they were falling through the bottom, and I got scared," she said. "It's super-dangerous. They can fall through to your belly button!"

Heidi originally got the breast implants as part of an extreme plastic-surgery makeover in November 2009, during which she got the following procedures done — all in one day:

  1. Mini brow lift
  2. Botox in forehead and frown area
  3. Nose job revision
  4. Fat injections in cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips
  5. Chin reduction
  6. Neck liposuction
  7. Ears pinned back
  8. Breast augmentation revision
  9. Liposuction on waist, hips and inner and outer thighs
  10. Buttock augmentation.

Montag estimates that she has spent around $250,000 on her plastic surgeries, which were partly responsible for her current financial problems.

In 2010, Montag and her husband, Spencer Pratt, filed for bankruptcy. Shockingly, the couple burned through their $10 million fortune on expensive cars, Heidi's surgeries, private jets and lavish homes.

Pratt, who also starred on the reality TV show "The Hills" (2007-2010) with Montag, blamed their over-the-top lifestyle and poor money management for their financial woes.

“We were immature and we got caught up,” Spencer told InTouch. “Every time we’d go out to eat, we’d order $4,000 bottles of wine. Heidi was going to the mall and dropping $20,000 to $30,000 a day. We thought we were Jay Z and Beyoncé."

Montag chimed in, "Now I can spend like $100 at Victoria’s Secret. I feel like a different person."

Grounded by their career and money struggles, Montag and Pratt hope to begin a family soon. “Definitely in my 30s [I want to have children],” said Heidi. “I think being a mother is one of my purposes in life, so I can’t wait to have kids. Ideally, two boys and a girl!”
