Patti Stanger has helped hundreds of people boost their confidence on the dating scene—and now the Millionaire Matchmaker is revealing how she increased her own morale when it comes to her personal life: plastic surgery.

Patti is now opening up about how several cosmetic surgeries made her feel better about dating. "I had my first breast reduction and lift five years ago," she tells Life & Style. "Then I had another one. I felt skinny and young again!"

She didn't stop there. Patti also got a face lift and an eye lift in 2011. "I felt pretty and like I could go out, date, and compete with all the young girls," she says.

That may have been for naught: soon after, Patti met mortgage broker David Krause and fell in love. "When I met [him], he thought I was younger than I was! He didn't care, though, when he found out my real age."

And she's been happier ever since she fell in love. "Two years ago, I was depressed because I hadn't found the true love of my life," she said recently. "I was like, 'What's wrong with me? I'm smart. I make money. I'm pretty. What's going on?'"
