Some shocking things happened to Elsa Patton during her plastic surgery path. She became famous on “The Real Housewives of Miami.”

Plastic surgery has become popular all over the world because most people would do anything to improve their looks.

Sadly, these treatments don’t always work and damage and change the shape of the face permanently. There was a popular reality star named Elsa Patton who did something similar. She was best known for being on “The Real Housewives of Miami.” She was on the show for only two years, from 2011 to 2013, but that was more than enough to make her famous. Many people loved her because of her one-liners and lively attitude.

At the same time, she had a lot of treatments that made her look so different that a plastic surgeon in Tampa, Florida, called her out on it and said she was “the worst case” of plastic surgery gone wrong.

We didn’t know much about Elsa Patton before she was on the show.Her birthday was August 25, 1936, and Ancestry.com said she was born in Cuba. She was married to Donald Patton for more than fifty years. He died in 2018, more than a year before Elsa.


“Mama Elsa” and Donald had two children together: a girl named Marysol Patton who appeared on “The Real Housewives of Miami” with her mother and later in the reboot, and a son named Thomas Anthony Jones.

Marysol told Reality Tea about her mother: “As a child, my mother always had a lot of people wanting to be around her. A lot of famous people and important people always wanted to be friends with my mother.”

“She’s always been interesting to everyone, so this doesn’t seem different from the past.”

“It’s a little different when we go out together on the streets,” Marysol said. “Strangers come up to us and stare, point, or take pictures, so that’s a little different.” But she really loves it.”

Elsa got her own show in 2012 called Havana Elsa. It followed her as she worked to open her own coffee chain. “I adore Cuban coffee… The Huffington Post reported that she said at the time, “Now I’m going to have my own coffee. That will be great, it will taste great, and on top of that I’m going to make money.”


There was no doubt that she had a lot of plastic surgery, but she never really talked about it. The doctor she had was called “the man who ruined my face.” Maryson, Elsa’s daughter, told her more about her mom’s surgeries. She said that her mom had work done on her eyelids in the 1980s, which left her with hematomas on her eyes for almost three years.

Benjamin C. Stong, a facial plastic surgeon at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia, said it’s “almost hard to even imagine” what she looked like before the surgeries. Another expert, Dr. Farrior, a double-board-certified surgeon in Tampa, Florida, said that Elsa’s face condition was a “tragedy” of bad judgement, ethics, and skill.
“It’s likely that she didn’t do it to herself but was able to get someone else to.” “That’s where it should have ended,” Dr. Farrior wrote, adding that the surgeon in question should have refused to do any more work.

“The real mistake she made was picking a provider who wouldn’t say no,” he said.
For season three of the reality show, Elsa had a stroke just days before filming began in 2013. She was taken to the hospital right away. As the months and years went by, her health got worse. On May 13, 2019, she died after “a long illness.” Elsa died when she was 84 years old.

Marysol showed her mother support when she married Steve McNamara, the head of a Florida building company, in 2021. At her Mayan wedding, a shaman led the service. “That’s where her mom’s spiritual and religious roots came from,” a source told Page Six. “She felt like her mom told her to have this kind of ceremony—Elsa is still in charge!”

Andy Cohen talked about Elsa in a touching way on his show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. He created and executive produces the Real Housewives series. “The wives’ friends and family have introduced us to many people over the course of the show’s history, but Elsa’s spirit, humour, and wisdom left such an indelible mark,” Cohen said.

We will always remember “Mama Elsa” and how great she was. Please let her rest in peace.
