293montagheidi061407Heidi Montag has found it tough to deal with all the criticism after her plastic surgery makeover, according to her sister.

The Hills star Heidi admitted to having 10 procedures in one day to create her ideal look, including breast implants, a lip job and liposuction.

Her sister Holly, who also appears on the reality TV show, said: “She’s being very strong and holding to her own morals and I’m very proud of her.”

She went on: “She’s the strongest woman I know. She’s done a brilliant job.”

Holly also said her sister is still adjusting to her new body.

“She was still just getting used to it and it’s a long recovery time. It’s several months,” she said.

“She’s being a trooper about the whole thing.”
