I'm a Michigan-based Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been featured on Dr. 90210. The info here is my opinion alone and should not be taken as fact or as medical advice. I've not treated any of the celebrities presented here.

Our favorite plastic surgery disaster, Heidi Montag, has now taken to tweeting advice for people regarding plastic surgery. Here are three recent tweets, courtesy of USAToday.com, and my analysis (in italics):
"Warning: to anyone who is thinking about getting their ears pinned, I learned after the fact it is the most painful surgery a person can get" - Untrue. I've performed this surgery many times and pain is almost never an issue. A tummy tuck or breast augmentation is much more painful than an otoplasty (ear pinback).
"Giving my self a soft tissue breast massage. Ladies we have to keep those implants soft" - True. I have all my breast implant patients massage their breasts as a way to help keep the scar tissue and implants soft. Unfortunately, scientific studies don't support this helping, but most plastic surgeons recommend their patients do it anyway.
"I had a nightmare that I slept without my nose tape on thank God it wasn't true!" - Huh? THAT's a nightmare? Geez, my nightmares are more about driving off a cliff or finding myself in school without any pants on.
