More Mama Elsa Patton before plastic surgery photos

Real Housewives of Miami's Marysol Patton and mom Elsa Patton

Marysol Patton’s mother Elsa has made a name for herself as the non-filtered comic (and psychic!) relief of The Real Housewives of Miami. Unfortunately, the reality star opted for plastic surgery several years ago and the procedure left her face nearly unrecognizable from what it once was. On last night’s season 2 premiere, Elsa finally opened up about the surgeon who had done the work, saying that he had “ruined” her face.

Real Housewives of Miami's Mama Elsa Patton before plastic surgery

As you can see from these family photos of Mama Elsa before plastic surgery, she was a fresh-faced beauty in her younger years, and even as she aged, she was a stunning woman. She certainly never appeared to be needing of a nip and tuck, but the pressure of staying young in a town like Miami can lead just about anyone to go under the knife.

In a more recent photo of Elsa and daughter Marysol, we see a glimpse of what Elsa looked like right before she underwent the cosmetic procedure that she says “ruined” her face and although it may be unfortunate, Elsa is hilarious and carefree and her spirit is something no surgeon can tarnish.

Despite the results of her plastic surgery, Elsa is loving the spot light and making her presence knows. Marysol recently opened up to Star Magazine about her mother’s success on the show and her desire to be in the spotlight. “It happened very organically. She gets excited having a film crew to entertain. She’s always asking me, ‘Where are the cameras? When are they coming over?'”

Here are some more photos of Mama Elsa Patton before plastic surgery courtesy of herself and Bravo – click images to enlarge:

    • KeepzItReal

      That’s what should be done to all of you insensitve, cruel and evil individuals who find amusement in People’s misfortunes. (Noticed I didn’t refer you as one) Individuals like you is why this world is so Sick! Had a thought…You may be right! With such a sick world, one can help it heal by doing just that…Killing It! Shame on you!

    Once again, looked better before. Plastic surgery is not flattering.

  • Polk8dot

    It is unbelievable how destroyed her face now is. What a freaking BUTCHER did she go to, to be disfigured like that?
    Also, given her trouble last season with dumb ho Larsa, I find it hillarious that Elsa used to look exactly like a 5-year older version of Larsa’s twin. I mean, she looks like a spitting image of her.
    Oh, what a nightmare she must have been thru to end up like that. I feel soooo sorry for her

  • NonnyMus

    Many of the supposed “before plastic surgery” photos show that she had at least lip filler and a brow lift – perhaps even a face lift – before the facelift which disfigured her.

    Just another plastic surgery victim. How many more will there be before our media allows women to age?

    • Kira

      “How many more will there be before our media allows women to age?”


    • JustSaying_IMFO

      More like when will women stop letting the media tell them how to age.

      • Drew 2u

        really/? vanity issues coming from someone with a magazine brushed id pic-do u want 2 b taken seriously?


        • JustSaying_IMFO

          Frankly, I don’t care how keyboard warriors take me. Especially ones apparently distracted by pictures and can’t be bothered to type out complete words, particularly short ones.

  • Anita Me

    Beautiful pictures, even without plastic surgery their beauty would have faded, but they are still awesome people

    • Drew 2u

      love u anita u sound so loving not like all the haters out there u r a rare exception and god bless u baby

  • Her face as it is now is not the result of one surgery…it’s the result of lost of elasticity and thinning of skin cells over multiple surgeries…She was a looker in the day though..

  • She was pretty! Looks like Gloria Estefan ! I hope she got a lot of money from whomever destroyed her face! She looks like Joseph Merrick now…in fact should find out if she has neurofibromatosis, especially since her speech seems affected also.

  • Karen

    Well money can’t buy you love, real love; but, apparently it can make somepeople try to look like worn torn cats! There’s a few of them on these shows. They have so much money and generally get whatever they want, so I guess into each life some rain must fall and these ladies can catch it with their puffed up lips!

  • Eliza

    That’s sad…moral to the story, work what you got!

  • cath.wright

    I cannot stand her, why on earth is she getting ANY camera time.

    • Because she is a mess. And cameras like messes.

      • CJ

        Talk about a real “Hootie and the Blowfish”–I am looking at this pic at 10:15 pm and I need an Ambien and a nighlight.

      • Drew 2u

        well if that is the case u should be on tv all the time n0.1 mess

  • maryann

    this woman is very, very ugly. Sorry I can not feel bad for people that do this to themselves. If this was a birth defect or an accident, that is different. But to deliberately do this to yourself, no pity here. That woman belongs in a horror movie.

    • KeepzItReal

      Shame on you Maryann! Shame on you! As with all and any surgery, be it emergency or elective, the out come is unknown until it’s finished. Your insensitive and unkind comment about someone else’s misfortune tells the Truth about who is a REAL UGLY woman!

      • Jeziy

        Oh be quiet, she chose to get plastic surgery – this is what happens when people have too much money, they become foolish…these woman think that they can become perfect for mans attention or media..honestly this is probably karma for her. I can not feel sorry for stupid people. There are actual people born with unfortunate circumstances and she is so full of herself, she wanted to be perfect. Karma b****s!!

        • Nic

          I’ve had plastic surgery. Are you saying that if you have an elected procedure that you deserve to become disfigured? How about blaming the DOCTOR. I’m sure you’re just a fat American jealous slob and there is no plastic surgery that would ever be able to fix you.

          • Michael Valentine


        • Drew 2u

          jezi nobody deserves disfigurement ok-if she has money can afford it good for her dont hate whatever makes u happy go 4 it u sound jealous resentful are u poor-o dear didums-will donate a used condom in your box okay bitch

    • linjaynes

      She went to a surgeon in good faith & this was the result. Instead of blaming the victim, how about the perpetrator who called there self’s a plastic surgeon?

  • She was so Beautiful! I feel sad for her! No one deserves that and to say that is mean and UGLY so look at yourselves if you think that!!!

  • pammie6

    What a horrible disaster. What country was this done, who is the doctor, did she sue? I hope so, no doctor now will try to take this on to improve. She must have been shocked after time for healing

    • Angelia Odiame

      IF I WAS A SURGEON, I WOULD TAKE HER SURGERY ON, BUT ONLY IF SHE SIGN A WAVER THAT SHE DEOSN’T HOLD ME RESPONSIBLE. I’m an esthetician, and I make everybody happy, but this is a task and a half. I pray she somehow gets it fix, IF WE CAN GO TO MARS, I’m sure we can find a Surgeon to FIX HER FACE.

  • Des Gibson

    “fresh-faced”! That’s funny.

  • Summer Webb

    This is why people should not go to Kaiser Permanente, clearly they took a weed whacker to her face and left her looking like a burn victim

    • Drew 2u

      summer u need a good pokee up the bummer coz u cold as winter coz u aint rich-bitch!

      • BooBooBaby

        You have absolutely NO Clue if she is Rich or Not! Lolz! What a strange thing for you to even post! Haha!

        • Drew 2u

          very strange am reading 3yrs later and cannot remember writing it mustve been my stupid friend

    • Cyberdish

      SUMMER!!!!! LOL!!!!!! For shame! A weed wacker? Your too much girlfriend! Oh my god that’s hilarious!

  • OkI’llSayIt

    I find it odd that so many expecting mothers spend so much time before a child is born if it will look more like one parent than the other. Then a pleasant surprise, it looks like the mother. Does that feeling so how go away after a while and plastic surgery “The Promise of Longer Youth” make you forget or not care that you will no longer look like each other?

  • Oliver St.John-Mollusc

    That is one UGLY TRAIN WRECK

  • gawd314144

    Wow, a perfectly lovely woman is now hideous due to vanity- pathetic!!

    • Angelia Odiame

      1000% agree with you

  • lulu

    I’ve been considering having my eyelids done but this totally changed my mind. What was I thinking?

  • Suckit

    She did it to her own face. She deserves it.

    • Nic

      Actually the surgeon did, moron.

      • BooBooBaby

        That’s if we believe HER!
        It looks like she has had many different surgeries before her last one. It is a possibility she went to one of those people, who are Not Real Plastic Surgeons, and they pumped her face full of that cheap silicone meant for vehicles……Pricillella Presley did the same thing years ago!
        It is very sad….always have to be careful!

        • NicCoka

          Geez this was frickin two years ago….

    • Drew 2u

      sucki keep sucking those dicks u slut-coz nobody deserves disfigurement ok she chose to improve herself she got money so dont hateok its the surgeon who deserves contempt not her so get an education so no need to keep blowing all those cocks ps do u swallow as maybe we could meet?

  • muller shmidt

    Every decision has its connsequences but she doesn’t even see herself as she really is….

  • zaigon

    This is the result of many plastic surgeries, her mouth is horrible, she has lumps all over her face, the eyes are ugly, I saw her in person and let me tell you is choking, and she was a very nice looking lady. A mask

    • Angelia Odiame

      now she just looks like a freak coz she didn’t know when to stop.

  • A Minor Prophet

    I think it is funny. The rich broad gambled and lost. She was hot before and now she is like a dog’s backside.

    To all of you saying that people’s comments about how extremely ugly she is is mean, think about this:

    If she wasn’t so damn vain she’d still have a normal face.

    The roots of vanity are pride and selfishness, not gratitude for what you have been given.

    Vanity is an excessive belief in one’s own abilities, that
    interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise.

    • Greg Skies

      Well said. Everyone ages. Accept it. There is nothing we can do about it.

    • GenvieL

      Gods’ Grace is something we are all need of. And it is undeserved for every one of us. You and I are no exception.

    • Nic

      It must be so nice to live such s perfect life MINOR. I would be willing to best a lot of, money that you’re a complete hypocrite in how you live your life (apparently sin free). Im sure you’ve never had a greedy thought or purchased something that you really didn’t need, but wanted. I’m sure your thoughts are pure and lust free and you live your life like Jesus would have .

      PS I hate people like you that call yourselves a CHRISTIAN and act like you live a sin free perfect life.

  • smileymayo

    Definitely NOT a “Lifestyle Lift”!!

  • senior papa

    dang, this lady was cute, unfortunate she didn’t choose to age gracefully.

  • Beautiful1

    Oh come on SHE did not need plastic surgery Elsa was beautiful and better looking than her kids!

    • Angelia Odiame

      c’mon not better looking than her kids, she looked good, but not better. now she just looks like a freak coz she didn’t know when to stop.

  • 1FredsGirl1

    This is awful. I was thinking of a life time lift but have now changed my mind. So I have a few wrinkles. I’m nearly 79 so who cares. I have me a good man and a still pretty face. (My daughter calls me a disgustingly cute old English woman) Why mess with what I have.

  • Anne Aquino

    My God I’m never getting plastic surgery.

  • elviratootoo

    She just couldn’t face the truth…she was getting old!
    No matter what you do to your face you are still getting old.
    Being vain is so pitiful.
    I earned each one of my wrinkles and I am not about to pay someone to remove them so I can walk around looking like a freak, no matter how good they are !

    • Drew 2u

      thats your choice but dont hate someone with money who chooses otherwise…your age obviously gave u no wisdom….ps enjoy your wrinkles bitch-why not post a picture as i havent seen my scrotum in ages

      • elviratootoo

        Oh, now I understand your hateful comments against women, you f*g! Besides, I DO have money, just think it is stupid to waste it on a plastic face when you know you are still old inside, that is where it counts.

        • Drew 2u

          know what counts is spending your hard earned cash on what you like without someone telling you what do.PS love women hate bitches

      • elviratootoo

        That means you’re too fat to see anything below your gut, even with a mirror.
