Patti Stanger, for those of you unfamiliar, is The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo TV who has been dishing out dating advice to single women across the country for half a decade now. While most of her advice to women is in regard to their behavior, a lot of it also has to do with the way the women look. Stanger's beauty tips usually include how to style hair, wear makeup and clothes in order to best attract a man.
While Stanger obviously practices what she preaches—wears hair long and straight, dresses to flatter her body type and emphasizes her eyes with mascara—we didn't realize just what a drastic change this dating guru has made until we saw a picture of what she used to look like.
The 51-year-old, who posted a picture of herself graduating from college on BravoTV.com, looks almost completely different than she did as a 20-something. And for a reason—she has openly admitted to having plastic surgery. Stanger underwent an upper blepharoplasty, a procedure to remove fat and excess skin from the eyelids. She also gets Botox injected regularly and looks to have gotten veneers.
Not only are her facial features different, but her waistline too. The star lost 30 pounds on the Sensa Weight Loss System, which uses your olfactory senses to keep you eating less. Because the impulse to eat is controlled by a specific portion of the brain, and not the stomach, you can maintain your current diet while losing weight by supposedly just integrating Sensa products into your meals. Patti went from a size 8 to a size 4. "I try to stay gluten-free at all times. I also have a trainer and stay as active as I can," Stanger says. "Focus on what's most imporant in your life. If weight-loss is one those things, treat it like a job. Make it part of your everyday routine," says Stanger.
