We always perk up when we see Trista Sutter, the original Bachelorette, back in the news. But this time was, er, extra perky: Sutter revealed to Life & Style that she decided to undergo plastic surgery.
The mother of two, who met her husband Ryan Sutter on the inaugural season of "The Bachelorette" in 2003, is known for her fit figure (she's showed it off here, here, here...) But after giving birth to her children, Maxwell and Blakesley, Sutter decided she wasn't as proud of her bikini bod as she'd once been. "After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated,” she told the magazine. “And I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I’ve ever taken.”
We hadn't noticed a thing (Sutter's, like, the hottest mom ever) but whatever floats your boat. So Sutter underwent blepharoplasty to lift her eyelids and "breast augmentation with an internal lift" to return to her perky ways.
While we were a little dismayed to hear the gorgeous mom had gone and messed around with her face (and chest), she may just be following a "Bachelor" franchise tradition. Vienna Girardi, winner of season 14 of "The Bachelor" and a "Bachelor Pad 2" contestant, had a nose job following her "BP2" appearance. Ella Nolan, also on season 14 of "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor Pad," underwent rhinoplasty, breast implants and liposuction after her stint on TV.
And Us Weekly reported that Emily Maynard, who recently found love as the most recent star of "The Bachelorette," got breast augmentation prior to appearing on season 15 of "The Bachelor." And that's really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette"/"Bachelor Pad" cosmetic surgery. Perhaps there is some correlation between appearing on the reality TV franchise and wanting to augment one's looks?
In any case, Trista says she's happier and more confident now that she's gotten a boost. Life & Style has the "before" and "after" photos -- can you see a real difference?
Stars who regretted their plastic surgery:

"I wish I'd never had my breasts done the last time," she told New Magazine. "They've put these bloody great bags in that are too f***ing round--it's like a water bed on your chest." (Getty photo)
"When I was 19, a doctor put in bigger implants than what I asked for. I was in such a hurry to get them that I didn't research my doctor," Richards told Us Weekly. "I just thought because they're a plastic surgeon, they must be good. You have to be your advocate for your own body and ask 100 questions." Later Richards wrote: "At 19 when I first got my breasts done, I wish that I was confident enough with my body to not have had surgery. That is something that I really want to encourage in my daughters, to embrace their healthy body and have confidence. I actually feel more confident in my skin now than in my 20's. Being confident is one of the sexiest qualities a woman can exude." (Getty photo)
"Me and my friends found a doctor in Arizona that cost about $1,500 to get our boobs done--because they didn't use anesthesia and I didn't know it," McCarthy told WENN. In a later interview with Us Weekly, the former playmate said she was "too young" when she got her implants at 19. (Getty photo)
In an interview with British Vogue, Victoria was asked about the absence of her "torpedo bazookas," to which the former Spice Girl reportedly replied, "gone". (Getty photo)
In an interview with Now Magazine, Kimberly states her famous father was supportive of his daughter when she had the implants put in at 18, and even more supportive when she decided to get rid of them. She recalls, "He's very supportive of whatever I do. He was just like, 'If you don't feel comfortable, if you don't feel safe, just get them removed.'" (Getty photo)
When she was 22, she got surgery to go from a B-cup to a C-cup. "It was so dumb... I just got the idea in my head one day, and that was that. There was no talking me out of it," said Kardashian in an interview with Us Weekly. (Getty photo)
The Hills star -- now a size "E or F" depending on the bra--had a staggering 10 procedures done in one day. "I'm obsessed with fitness but it's impossible to work out with these boobs," Montag told Life and Style Magazine. "It's heartbreaking. I can't live an everyday life." (Getty photo)
"When I had implants, I felt uncomfortable," the former porn star told Us Weekly. "I would be shy at the beach. I know it sounds funny, but I'd wear high-necked clothes, unless I was at an adult-film convention. So I thought, 'why don't I be who I am and get my real ones back?'" (Getty photo)
"I was a 34B, but the right one was always bigger than the left," she told Us Weekly. "He gave me Cs, and I didn't want them. At all." (Getty photo)
"Well, I got my boobs done in my early 20s," Spelling told Good Morning America. "If I had known that it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I wouldn't have had them. I love being a mom. I am on my third baby. We want to have more. That's my role... these don't matter." (Getty photo)
