Heidi Montag claims her cosmetic surgeon made her feel very insecure.

The former 'The Hills' star, who underwent ten surgical procedures in one day in early 2010, including a brow lift, liposuction and two breast enlargements, originally only wanted to tweak her appearance and had no idea how much pain going under the knife would cause her.

The 27-year-old star, whose plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan died in a car accident in August 2010, told Barbara Walters on 'The View': ''I really just went back in to get my nose reset and get a little bit larger of implants because I had been elbowed by a backup dancer in a music video that I was doing and then I went in and was talking to my doctor and he just kind of diagnosed me and was like, 'You should get a chin reduction, and an eyebrow lift.'

''I didn't know what an eyebrow lift and a chin reduction was! So once he kind of told me everything that was wrong with me I felt really insecure, and he gave me a really great deal on it all. He didn't tell me how extensive it was going to be, how severe, how painful, so I had no idea.''

Heidi had her breast implants reduced in size last year and now lives a much simpler life with her husband Spencer Pratt after blowing their $10 million fortune.

She said: ''We just live really humble lives. I cook a lot, I clean our house all the time.''

The couple, who live in Los Angeles, hope to have children when their lives are more stable.

Heidi said: ''First our priority is really getting a career and being stable because especially Spencer wants to be very responsible with it... To have security for our children.''
