"The Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger admits that she’s had plastic surgery – and she’s proud of it. The Bravo TV celebrity recently told host Andy Cohen of “What Happens: Live” that she’s gone under the knife to correct her droopy eyelids. Eyelid surgery is a popular choices for those with droopy eyelids, otherwise known as ptosis.
Stanger says that she had actually gone in for facelift surgery but her plastic surgeon refused to work on her. She had the eyelid procedure done to achieve a more rejuvenated look and to eliminate the “droopy eye look” completely.
If you have droopy eyelids or want to achieve a more youthful appearance without a full facelift, take some time to learn about eyelid lift surgery. You will need to talk to a blepharoplasty surgeon to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. Look at these eyelid surgery before and after photos to get a better idea of what type of transformation to expect with this procedure.
Patti Stanger wasn’t shy about revealing that she has had plastic surgery. She told the audience and viewers, “We’re all getting plastic surgery. Come on, this is the game here, and HDTV exaggerates all the features. Yeah, I’m proud of it, because we’re all doing it. Nobody’s talking about it.”
Eyelid surgery involves making very small incisions right around the brow area and manipulating the skin tissues to create a tighter, toned appearance. It’s a fairly simple procedure and promises very little downtime when compared to facelift surgery.
Still, Stanger admits that the downtime with her procedure took longer than expected. She ended up scheduling her surgery too close to the start of the new season and it showed on camera. She says that plastic surgeons don’t accurately tell you how long it will take to recover, so you should plan on “doubling it” to be safe. Stanger has also admitted to getting Botox because she has some deep wrinkles on her forehead. Botox is another popular facial rejuvenation procedure and among the most affordable options available for those who want to combat wrinkles without surgery.
