The new season of the Bachelor kicks off later this month and as proof that the show can actually find love, the original Bachelorette Trista Sutter is back in the spotlight. Trista plans to renew her vows to firefighter Ryan Sutter, whom she has now been married to for 10 years and has two kids. But before the big day comes, Trista is busy promoting her new book, “Happily Ever After: The Life-Changing Power of a Grateful Heart.”
Speaking with Ali Wentworth, on Yahoo’s Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth, Ali talked about her life and her controversial decision to undergo several plastic surgery procedures at the age of 39. In addition to getting a breast lift and breast augmentation after having kids, Trista also opted for eyelid surgery to correct a genetic droopy eye problem.
While Trista is ultimately pleased with the results of her procedures, she says that at the time, she was not a happy camper.
“You had some rough times with plastic surgery,” Ali says to start the conversation.
“I did,” laughs Trista.
“You have the eye thing I have,” Ali commiserates.
“I know. I actually went on and looked at your videos that you did for the blepharoplsasty and I was like, ‘Oh my God, what am I doing?”
Cause when I went on the Internet there wasn’t anything, so I was like, I wanna know what this feels like, what I’m gonna be dealing with…”
“I know, I had a droopy eyelid on one side,” Trista explains as she gestures to her right eye, “and it wasn’t something that anyone else would notice necessarily but when I got really tired, it would droop a little more. It’s just a genetic thing, my mom has it and I’m happy I did. It was not a fun experience by any means.”
Trista goes on to elaborate on her “horrible” plastic surgery recovery, saying that not only did she end up being allergic to her antibiotic and getting sick for weeks, but she also went into a clinical depression, saying, “I was like a shell of myself. It was horrible.”
Eventually, all her problems were traced back to the medication still in her system and Trista is ultimately pleased with her results. And according to an interview with Good Morning America shortly after Trista showed off her results, hubby Ryan is definitely happy with pressuring Trista to have breast augmentation, saying, “I love her…the same as before, but I maybe love one section of her a little more.”
Host Ali Wentworth went public with her decision to go under the knife when she opted for a blepharoplasty in 2012 after suffering from a genetic condition that caused her eyelids to droop. In keeping with her gregarious personality, the comedian, actress, author and wife of ”Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos posted videos of her experience: pre-op, during plastic surgery recovery and the final result.
Ali’s results were great, as she looks much more refreshed, but not at all tight and pulled. After showing off her newly opened eyes, Ali began receiving suggestions on what to work on next but politely declined them all, saying she was finished with plastic surgery as she had met her primary goal.
