(Newser) – Now that former Playmate Holly Madison is no longer a girl next door, she's opening up about how ex Hugh Hefner damaged her self-esteem. She also tells Life & Style why she turned to plastic surgery, PopEater reports.

  • On Hef: "Living with Hef brought down my self-esteem a lot. I was comparing myself to the other girls. You have to look a certain way at the mansion."

  • On plastic surgery: "Plastic surgery made it easier for me to get things I wanted in my career. Without it, I wouldn't be where I am today. It made me more confident. And a lot of doors open when you look a certain way."
  • On the future: "I wouldn't consider more surgery—unless my body implodes after I have kids!"
