  • "So what? What's the big deal? People are ignorant when then talk about this, they don't understand that things like Botox, ear pinning and fat injections are not really plastic surgery procedures, but Dr. Ryan had to list them in the interest of disclosure. The reason I became a Supermodel was because of my genetics, I was lucky, I was born that way. To be a great beauty you need symmetry, and that was something that she, and Doctor Ryan, obviously thought she was lacking. Heidi is trying to muscle herself into branding herself, she's earning, like, 1.2 million a year on the Hills, she's looking to launch a range of shampoos and fragrances, she's branching out, and she wants to look her best. Heidi has bought into the microcosm that plastic is best. And she's going out of her way to improve all those things she thinks need improvement. Frank is an amazing surgeon. For anyone to accuse him of any wrongdoing just totally shows their ignorance. He is an amazing man and people don't know the half of what he does. He gives millions each year in pro-bono working on ghetto kids and is one of the most humble and conservative surgeons in Hollywood today… I think the surgery aged her actually. She looked younger without it, and she looked more attractive. But it's her choice. She can afford to look however she wants, and have whatever she wants done to her face and body. It's her choice. She could even get an Avatar tail grafted onto her if she chose to, it's nobody's business but hers." — Janice Dickinson, on Heidi Montag. [Radar Online]
