MTV launching show based around Heidi Montag's surgery

MTV is launching a show based around Heidi Montag’s drastic change of appearance due to plastic surgery and the way media can influence the way we perceive beauty.

The series, entitled Heidi’s Face, will aim to educate viewers into the ways in which the media manipulates images and therefore give people unrealistic ideas of beauty.

Executive producer Lisa Stokoe said: “The results of the initiative surprised us all and truly highlight the need to educate young people about what really goes on behind the scenes to achieve the images of perfection presented in today’s media.”

The series will transform its male presenter into a woman using digital technology in order to highlight the fact that the audience can be tricked into believing something is real when it is not.

Stokoe said: “We wanted to demonstrate the influence of digital retouching technology and the final result certainly proves that even the most extreme changes can be achieved in just a matter of clicks! The stunt will support our in-house show Heidi’s Face and will indicate – in a fun, comical way – how unrealistic and unattainable these ideals of perfection are.”
