Trista Sutter, the first contestant on ABC's "The Bachelorette," said that her recent plastic surgery makeover made her "feel pretty again."
"After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated," Sutter told Life & Style magazine. "And I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I've ever taken."
Along with the story, Life & Style published photos of the former reality star's new bikini body. The photo posted above was taken in January 2012, before Sutter underwent operations on her eyes and breasts. The 39-year-old underwent a blepharoplasty, which lifted her eyelids and removed under eye bags, and she had a breast augmentation and lift, going from a size B to a size C.
"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 told the weekly. "He wanted me to be happy, so he said, 'Whatever you need to do to make yourself happy, go for it' ... I wanted to feel pretty again - and I do!"
Sutter made her reality television debut in season one of ABC's "The Bachelor." She finished runner-up on the reality dating show and was selected to be the first "Bachelorette." She chose Colorado firefighter Ryan Sutter and the couple wed on December 6, 2003. Their wedding was broadcast in a three-episode special called "Trista & Ryan's Wedding," which had a record-breaking 26 million viewers. The couple has two children together - son Maxwell, 5, and daughter Blakesley, 3.
Sutter was also the first contestant to be voted off of the first season of ABC's reality dancing competition, "Dancing With The Stars."
