The first hour of The Real Housewives of Miami reunion show aired last night, and aside from being a crazy lady-style dog fight, there were a few interesting revelations as well, namely about Elsa Patton‘s face.
Now in the past, we’ve put significant effort into our speculation about what could’ve gone down to create the flesh-scape that we see before us today. We contacted Dr. Richard Chafoo, a plastic surgeon, who gave us his professional opinion of what must’ve gone down to make such a mess. He had a lot of ideas, but it all boiled down to this:
“It appears as though she had a brow lift, blepharoplasty, facelift, and fillers although she looks overdone and unnatural. Her eyebrows are raised too high in a surprised and artificial appearance.”
The other stuff is in plain English, but Dr. Chafoo thought the main issue mostly centered around a botched eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, although it’s important to note that he wasn’t there, nor is Mama Elsa a patient of his.
But now we have confirmation straight from the horse’s mouth. Or, straight from her daughter, Marysol Patton‘s mouth, anyway. For kind of the first time, Marysol opened up about the issues with her mom’s face. In her own words:
“I remember having her eyelids done, like in the eighties and it went so wrong. She had hematomas on her eyes for like three years. And after that, I’ve never seen her have like a full face-lift or anything.”
That makes sense. That would explain the way her eyelids droop. And Ana Quincoces had some input on the rest of her face as well:
“I honestly think, I mean I’m not an expert, but it looks like she started doing injectibles before injectibles were…and they put silicone in, and that kind of pools under your skin and you can’t remove it.
Again, makes total sense. The same way that women are putting Botox in their faces now without really knowing the full side-effects, these women like Elsa were putting in silicone without knowing how it behaved. In Adriana De Moura‘s words:
Obviously the photos of Elsa when she was young, she looks like Sophia Loren. If you think she’s like a little older…and whatever was going on twenty, thirty years ago when she was doing it, it’s not necessarily the best reliable product. And she was trying to stay beautiful like all of us.
It’s a sad thing, but it is nice to finally have some closure in the case of Elsa’s face. It should be a lesson to everyone — don’t put things in your face without knowing what they do! Actually, on second thought…maybe just don’t put things in your face at all. Just an idea.
