Heidi Montag wants those huge new breast implants removed ASAP!
The reality star, who underwent some 10 plastic surgery procedures last November, reportedly regrets getting G-cup breasts. Yes....we said G-cups.
I'm desperate to go back to normal," Heidi tells Life & Style. "I'm downgrading and going a little smaller, to a D or a double D."
Why the sudden change of heart for the 28-year-old star?
Apparently, Heidi is in some pain following the G-implant procedure 9 months ago. And toting around those very large breasts is quite cumbersome for an athletic girl like Miss Montag.
"I'm obsessed with fitness but it's impossible to work out with these boobs," she says. "It's heartbreaking. I can't live an everyday life."
This latest revelation by Heidi Montag comes just one week following the untimely death of her plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan. And Heidi is reportedly looking for a new surgeon to downsize her breasts.
So, can a woman trade in huge breast implants for smaller ones? Shouldn't that be a simple procedure?
Well, it depends. We did a little research and found one popular Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Francis Palmer, who talks a lot about breast implants at his website. This is what he says:
....."You may exchange your Breast Implants for smaller ones should you wish to reduce the overall size of your breasts. Typically, you can go down one full cup size without risking sagging, of the breasts, or loose skin…but this obviously varies a great deal from patient to patient.".
It also depends where in the breasts the implants have been placed. For instance, are the implants located above the muscle or under the muscle?
Another breast implant expert, Dr. B. Pat Pazmino of Miami, cautions women who want to trade in their big breast implants for smaller ones, to do their homework.
...."For such surgery, it is incredibly important to be evaluated only by a board-certified plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience in breast surgery. Your surgeon may recommend removal of the implants or changing the implants to a smaller size. Although your surgeon will likely try to incorporate the incisions used to place the implants the surgery may be limited by the thickness of the remaining tissue and other techniques to ensure that your nipple and overline breast skin are not damaged."
