But 54-year-old Dickinson really doesn't see what all the fuss is about and claims it is people's ignorance of plastic surgery that is fuelling their criticism.

"So what? What's the big deal?" Dickinson says in an exclusive interview with "People are ignorant when then talk about this, they don't understand that things like Botox, ear pinning and fat injections are not really plastic surgery procedures, but Dr. Ryan had to list them in the interest of disclosure.

When questioned as to whether the procedures that Montag did have were really necessary on a 23-year-old, Dickinson fires back, "Heidi was a plain dowdy girl before the surgeries. She's a rural mountain girl that wasn't blessed with great genes.

"The reason I became a Supermodel was because of my genetics, I was lucky, I was born that way. To be a great beauty you need symmetry, and that was something that she, and Doctor Ryan, obviously thought she was lacking.

"Heidi is trying to muscle herself into branding herself, she's earning, like, 1.2 million a year on the Hills, she's looking to launch a range of shampoos and fragrances, she's branching out, and she wants to look her best.

"Heidi has bought into the microcosm that plastic is best. And she's going out of her way to improve all those things she thinks need improvement."

And when it comes to accusations of impropriety on behalf of Dr. Ryan, Dickinson really let's loose!

"Frank is an amazing surgeon. For anyone to accuse him of any wrongdoing just totally shows their ignorance.

"He is an amazing man and people don't know the half of what he does. He gives millions each year in pro-bono working on ghetto kids and is one of the most humble and conservative surgeons in Hollywood today.

"For him to carry out work on Heidi he obviously saw the need for it. Look, she had her jaw done so it's possible that after that something in her face altered and she needed something else done to maintain the symmetry.

"Frank is a master when it comes to symmetry, that is how he operates. He would never carry out any procedures frivolously or do anything that wasn't required.

"Look, for all we know she could of had droopy eyelids and that's why she needed a mini-brow lift, we don't know, all we can give is opinion, only Heidi and Dr Ryan know the truth.

"He has millions of hours of experience and he doesn't just operate on anyone. Trust me, I've begged him for more procedures but he won't carry them out because he says I don't need them. He's not going to do procedures just for the hell of it."

And when it comes to how Heidi looks post surgery? Surprisingly Janice isn't a fan! "I think the surgery aged her actually," Janice says. "She looked younger without it, and she looked more attractive.

"But it's her choice. She can afford to look however she wants, and have whatever she wants done to her face and body. It's her choice. She could even get an Avatar tail grafted onto her if she chose to, it's nobody's business but hers.

Don't give her ideas now Janice!

Finishing off, Janice has nothing but praise for her plastic surgeon and close friend. "Frank Ryan is an excellent recourse in war time to keep women looking beautiful," she says.
