Heidi Montag, the reality show participant who has heavily courted press attention due to her many plastic surgeries, claims to have undergone a procedure she calls a “back scoop.”
However, when pressed during a visit to On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Montag admits to having no idea what such surgery might actually entail:
In addition to familiar-sounding enhancements — nose, cheekbone and chin jobs, eyebrow lift, breast enlargement, fat injections — Montag said that she also “had my back scooped.”
When Ryan Seacrest asked her to clarify what a “back scoop” is, Montag replied, “I actually didn’t know. I might be the first one to try it. It carves out your back a little bit.”
Montag also disclosed that she extensively chronicled her many surgeries, and insinuated that the footage (she hopes) will be used some day in a future reality show. Montag told Seacrest that she’d like to be the “blonde Tomb Raider,” but also said that with her new “E or F” cup breasts, jogging and hugging are two activities in which she can no longer participate.
So what is “back scoop surgery”? As a medical esthetician who has worked with several cosmetic surgeons, I’ve never heard of a “back scoop” procedure. It might be possible to do liposuction on the area, but there doesn’t appear to be any surgery that remotely resembles a “back scoop.”
