A “Bravo-lebrity” puts her plastic surgery on the table

October 6, 2011

“Yes, I had plastic surgery and I’m proud of it.”
“Yes, I had plastic surgery and I’m proud of it.”

Patti Stanger may talk about love, but her forte is dishing out stingers. Recently, she managed to alienate two different minority groups by accusing one of lying and the other of promiscuity.

As your matchmaker, she will set you straight about what you’re doing to ruin your chances for love. Follow her instructions or “Get out of my office!”

She’s also not afraid to put herself under the magnifying glass. Unlike other “Bravo-lebrities,” such as the blonde housewives of Beverly Hills and Orange County (mop and bucket in hand), and their beleaguered brunette counterparts in New Jersey (elbow-deep in cannoli shells), Stanger says, “yes,” she had plastic surgery and is proud of it.

Stanger was a guest on "Watch What Happens: Live.” Host Andy Cohen read her a question he said he's gotten a lot lately: “Stanger looks different this season. Did she go under the knife?”
Stanger, who doesn’t hesitate to suggest that clients strip down, cover up, fix their teeth, dye their hair and undergo any and all manner of revisions to be attractive to the opposite sex was quick to own up that she had just gotten her eyelids done. She said she did it to correct ptosis (pronounced like “toesis”), which means droopy eyelids.

She said she asked her plastic surgeon for a face lift, but he did not think it was appropriate.
As reported in the Orange County Register, September 27, 2011, Stanger said, "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.”

Stanger has one regret about her eyelid surgery. She said she scheduled it much too close to the start of the new season. If you’re planning plastic surgery, Stanger advises you to ask your surgeon what the recovery time is and then “double it,” especially before an event in which you’ll be in the public eye.

Stanger owns up to Botox injections too, but claims she gets them because they ease her cluster headaches.
