Trista Sutter has admitted to getting plastic surgery and shared the dramatic results in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine.
Sutter, 39, was the first to seek, and find, love on season one of "The Bachelorette."
She revealed to the magazine that she underwent a makeover several months before her 40th birthday to feel "pretty again."

"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," Sutter said.
After several visits to her plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose in Houston, Texas, Sutter decided to have the bags under her eyes removed and an augmentation on her breasts. The surgery on her bust increased her bra size from a B to a full C cup.
"After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated," she told the magazine exclusively. "And I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I've ever taken."
Sutter first appeared on season one of ABC's "The Bachelor" and was one of the last two girls before she was sent home at the final rose ceremony. In a 2003, Sutter became the star of "The Bachelorette" season one, where she met her husband Ryan Sutter. The couple have two children - Maxwell, 5, and Blakesley, 3.
Ryan fully supported her decision to have the makeover.
"He wanted me to be happy, so he said, 'Whatever you need to do to make yourself happy, go for it,"' Sutter told Life & Style. In the magazine's new issue, Sutter is wearing a bikini in a set of before and after pictures.
