Former "Bachelorette" contestant Trista Sutter has admitted to having plastic surgery.
Sutter underwent plastic surgery three months prior to her 40th birthday in an attempt to "feel pretty again" according to the report. She claimed that after giving birth to her children, her body had been transformed physically and she wished to regain her previous figure while making a few small changes.
"After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated," mom of two Trista Sutter, 39, told Life & Style magazine. "And I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I've ever taken.
Sutter underwent plastic surgery in Houston, Texas. For the operation she had surgery on her eyes and breasts- a blepharoplasty to lift her eyelids and remove the bags under her eyes, and breast augmentation with an internal lift that increased her cup size from a small B to a full C, according to the magazine.
Sutter was chosen as the next Bachelorette in 2003 after losing on "The Bachelor" the season before. At the end of the show, she chose Ryan Sutter, whom she married in December of 2003. The couple was paid one million dollars for allowing the network to televise the wedding, which drew over 26 million viewers. Sutter claims the surgery was for herself and to feel that she was still attractive to her husband.
"I realized that the surgery was something I had to do for myself, just for my own self-confidence and to feel good again about being in bathing suits and being intimate with my husband," she stated in the interview.
Sutter also confirmed that her husband supported her wishes.
"He wanted me to be happy, so he said, 'Whatever you need to do to make yourself happy, go for it,'" she said. "I wanted to feel pretty again- and I do!"
