Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger opens up about her confidence-boosting surgery

Red carpet visualCupid to the rich and the famous, Patti Stranger has attributed dating success to her plastic surgery rather than her matchmaking skills. In 2010 she ended a seven year relationship with real-estate executive Andy Freidman and headed back onto the dating scene. Now Stranger has now opened up about how going under the knife gave her a much-needed confidence boost.The 52-year-old had breast augmentation and an eyelift before meeting mortgage broker David Krause through an online dating site more than a year ago. “I felt pretty and like I could go out, date and compete with all the young girls,” she told the US magazine Life and Style. “When I met David, he thought I was younger than I was. He didn’t care, though, when he found out my real age.” Cosmetic surgery is not the only thing that has put Stranger’s love life back on track. She has previously credited former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin with some life-changing advice. “I was like, 'What's wrong with me? I'm smart. I make money. I'm pretty. What's going on?'” said Stranger. “I told Jill, who said, 'Something is running in your unconscious that is preventing you from finding love.'” She added: “Forty eight hours later, David walked into my life.”
