Amanda Bynes is a hero. According to, well, Amanda Bynes.

The 27-year-old starlet took to Twitter Wednesday to dish loads of details on her supposed surgeries she claims to have had to correct "webbing" between her eyes, which she deemed a "birth defect." 


"I was born with a webbing in between my eyes," Bynes began in her Twitter rant. "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!" the Drake enthusiast revealed.

She continued: "I consider myself to be a hero to have suffered 27 years with a birth defect and to just now have it surgically removed! 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 former Nickelodeon star explained.

Bynes, who has recently stopped posting endless twitpics, also said she's ready to take the next surgical step in her transformation.

"I'm having my next surgery on Saturday!" she confessed. "My doctors are heroes who also correct kids who have cleft lip - something as traumatic as webbing in between your eyes!" the What I Like About You star added.

And she ended her Twitter outburst with a few words of wisdom about plastic surgery:

"I wanted to share my story with you to prove that I'm not crazy, I was just embarrassed," she explained. "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!"


Bynes has also been on the social media musical beat as of late, and has apparently, become BFF with Waka Flocka Flame.

"@WakaFlockaBSM we were hanging out as best friends:)," she wrote, to which Waka replied, "#NewFriends @AmandaBynes."

"@WakaFlockaBSM King," Bynes tweeted in reponse.

Do we sense a duet in the future? (Watch out, Drake).
