Elsa Patton had a shocking plastic surgery journey: Inside the procedures

Since most people will go to tremendous lengths to improve their appearance, plastic surgery has become widely used throughout the world.

Regretfully, these operations don’t always work and result in long-term facial deformity and injury. This was the situation involving well-known reality star Elsa Patton, who is most recognized for her role on “The Real Housewives of Miami.” Although she only appeared in the show for two years, from 2011 to 2013, it was more than enough for her to become well-known. Her witty remarks and exuberant demeanor contributed to her popularity as a character.

Elsa Patton had several surgeries done at the same time that rendered her so unrecognizable that a plastic surgeon in Tampa, Florida, called it out, stating that there was “no worse case” of plastic surgery gone wrong than hers.

Before Elsa Patton’s entrance on the show, not much was known about her.According to Ancestry.com, she was born on August 25, 1936, in Cuba. Before Donald Patton passed away in 2018, more than a year before Elsa also passed away, she was wed to him for more than 50 years.

“Mama Elsa” and Donald had a son named Thomas Anthony Jones and a daughter named Marysol Patton, who appeared with her mother on “The Real Housewives of Miami” and subsequently in the reboot.

In reference to her mother, Marysol said to Reality Tea, “My mother had a lot of friends and famous people who constantly wanted to be around her when I was growing up.

“Everyone has always found her fascinating, so it doesn’t seem like this is any different from the past.”

“When we go out on the streets together, it’s a little different because strangers are coming up to us or staring or pointing or taking pictures, so that’s a little different,” Marysol continued. But she finds it really enjoyable.


Havana Elsa, Elsa’s spin-off series that followed her journey to launch a coffee chain, debuted in 2012. “I adore coffee from Cuba. and now I’m going to have my own coffee, which is going to be amazing, to my taste, and I’m going to make me money too,” she remarked at the time, according to the Huffington Post.

It was obvious that she had undergone numerous plastic procedures, even if she was never very forthcoming about them. “The man who ruined my face” was how she described her surgeon to her. Maryson, Elsa’s daughter, provided additional details regarding her mother’s procedures, stating that she suffered from hematomas on her eyes for over three years after having her eyelids done in the 1980s.

Benjamin C. Stong, a facial plastic surgeon at Atlanta, Georgia’s Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, stated that it is “almost hard to even imagine” how she appeared before to her procedures. Dr. Farrior, a double-board certified surgeon in Tampa, Florida, is another expert in the field and called Elsa’s facial condition a “tragedy” in terms of technique, ethics, and judgment.

It’s likely that she persuaded someone to harm her instead of doing it herself. That’s where it ought to have ended,” Dr. Farrior wrote, stressing that the concerned surgeon had the authority to decline performing more surgery.

He went on, “The real mistake was the provider choice she made because they did not say NO.”

Elsa had a stroke in 2013 and was sent to the hospital just a few days before the third season of the reality program was scheduled to begin filming. Her health declined over the coming months and years, and on May 13, 2019, she passed dead following “a long illness.” When Elsa passed away, she was eighty-four.

In 2021, Marysol married Steve McNamara, the president of a construction company in Florida, as a tribute to her mother. A shaman officiated her Mayan wedding ceremony. A source told Page Six, “It was the foundation of her mom’s spiritual-religious roots.” “Elsa is still in charge! She felt her mom’s influence guided her to have this kind of ceremony!”

Andy Cohen, the executive producer and creator of the Real Housewives franchise, paid a moving homage to Elsa on his program Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. In all of the Real Housewives’ history, Cohen said, “we have met a lot of the wives’ friends and relatives, but rarely has someone’s spirit, humor, and wisdom made such an indelible impression as Elsa’s did.”

We shall always cherish “Mama Elsa” and her amazing disposition. Peace be with her as she rests.
