Amanda Bynes' Twitter: I'm A 'Hero' for Getting Plastic Surgery

Amanda Bynes' Twitter is usually filled with the star calling people ugly, but earlier today the focus was on her as she considers herself to be "a hero."

The 27-year-old actress took the time to explain her recent plastic surgeries over and Twitter, and says she is now confident in herself after leaving with an alleged birth defect with her eyes.

"I was born with a webbing in between my eyes. That was a birth defect that I had surgically removed! I've never been more excited! Now I need a few more surgeries to shave the bridge down to correct the rest of my nose so I can start the next chapter of my career! Music!" she said last night on Twitter.

Bynes then goes on to talk about how the media makes her seems strange and criticizes her new look.

"I consider myself to be a hero to have suffered 27 years with a birth defect and to just now have it surgically removed!" she continued. "I had to share my story with you so the media would stop using old photos of me and stop writing lies about me having odd behavior when I was just embarrassed to share the fact that I had a birth defect. As soon as I had it removed I couldn't wait to talk about it!"

The next series of tweets by Bynes painted her as heroic for getting the surgeries.

"My doctors are heroes who also correct kids who have cleft lip -- something as traumatic as webbing in between your eyes!" she tweeted. "I wanted to share my story with you to prove that I'm not crazy, I was just embarrassed. Surgery is a complete miracle for me -- nothing can hold you back from living out your dreams. There's a surgery for everything that's wrong with you!"

Readers of CP had mixed comments about how they feel on her statements about plastic surgery.

"I'd say your beautiful the way you are. That money can be spent in so many better ways than superficially," said Christopher Monopoly.

"Why shouldn't you do things to make you happy if you have the means," said Jessica Voto, who then added, "And... you can't fix stupid."

One reader said reconstructive surgery was a good thing, but for those with real, obvious defects.

"I'm for reconstructive surgery- (plastic surgery for people who had accidents or serious medical conditions) Otherwise real beauty is on the inside Even though, there have been major advances in the field, remember all surgery doesn't come with out risk," said Sara Barton.
