AMERICA’S FIRST – “FIRST LADY” WITH BREAST IMPLANTS???  Dr. Franklin Rose Discusses the First Lady Hopeful’s Multiple Plastic Surgeries

Every week, Life & Style Magazine brings you plastic surgery experts analyzing your favorite celebrities and the procedures they may have gotten!

In the current edition of Life & Style Magazine – Renown celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose was asked to review plastic surgery procedures First Lady hopeful Melania Trump may have had done.

We can’t say for sure what procedures Melania, 45—who is Republican Candidate Donald Trump’s third wife-–has or has not done,  but modeling photos of her as a teenager indicates some subtle and not-so subtle changes.

In early photos, taken while Melania was a teen model in Milan, Italy, she boasts naturally dark hair and lovely, vaguely exotic eyes, a product of her parents Slovenian heritage.  But just like her hair color, Melania’s original nose is long gone.

Is America ready for a nip-tucked first lady?

It may not be the most pressing question about Donald Trump’s bid for the White House, but the more we see of his wife, 46-year-old Melania Trump, the more we wonder. She certainly busts out of the traditional FLOTUS mold.

“Melania could be the first first lady with breast implants,” notes Dr. Franklin Rose, a Houston plastic surgeon. “And they seem very generous — especially for such a skinny person!” Besides her apparent DD cups that runneth over, there’s the matter of the mom of one’s rather glazed-over facial expression. While she is still “very pretty,” says Dr. Rose, who has never treated the Slovenian former model, “her face has a stony look from being overfilled and over-Botoxed.

Less Isn’t More for Melania

Most people want a more natural effect.” Botox could likewise be the reason she barely smiles, he adds. “When overdone around the lips (to smooth fine lines), it relaxes the muscles so much that the area becomes somewhat inanimate,” Dr. Rose says. But to her — and her doctor’s — credit, the jewelry designer’s likely rhinoplasty is a “beautiful job,” says Dr. Rose. “Whoever is treating her now is just a little overzealous with the injectables.”

Maybe that’s how she keeps a straight face through the campaign circus!

Mommy Makeover – Guest blog by Shellie Schoellkopf

In this blog post we are pleased to have Shellie share her experience with her Mommy Makeover by Dr. Franklin Rose! You can check out more stories on her blog: http://terriblylovelyblog.blogspot.com/ and follow Shellie on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TerriblyLovely

With the miracle of pregnancy and childbirth comes the not-so miraculous side effect of weight gain, stretch marks, and new-found curves that may not be all that welcome.

Me at my heaviest, 9 months after my son was born.

Me at my heaviest, 9 months after my son was born.

In my case, that included a whopping 60 (yes, six-zero) pounds. Wanting to be the very best mother to my son that I possibly could, losing the weight and reclaiming my energy and confidence were a crucial part of this journey called parenthood.

With a nutrition and workout plan in-hand, I remained focused on the task before me and within two months had lost 35 pounds. Over the next six months another 15, and finally an additional 20. While I felt great about all that I had accomplished on my own, there were still areas that I just couldn’t tackle no matter how much I hit the gym or how clean I ate. The volume in my breasts had all but vanished and the excess skin that hung from my abdomen proved to be far more stubborn than I had anticipated.

While looking online for other women who had experienced the dramatic weight gain and loss and the resulting “issues”, I came across the Mommy Makeover. Knowing that I had put in an extreme amount of effort and accomplished so much on my own, this seemed like the best option for me.

Realself.com users gave the combination of procedures a 99% rating, confirming my thoughts that it would all be worth whatever might lay ahead in terms of cost or discomfort. I had two consultations with local surgeons and determined that Dr. Franklin Rose would be the most qualified and highly skilled. We decided to do the traditional combo of liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast augmentation with the new “gummy bear” implants, which look and feel natural and have virtually no chance of rupture or leakage. He asked if I would mind documenting the experience for ABC to show others what to expect and being the social media butterfly that I am, I readily agreed.

2 weeks post-op; still a lot of swelling, but couldn’t wait to see how I’d look in a two-piece!

Within one week of our initial visit, I walked in to First Street Surgical and the amazing staff made me feel completely at ease as we went through all of the pre-op procedures. Dr. Rose and his nurse, Pam came in a few minutes before I went under to make sure that I was comfortable and ready to go. The camera crew stood by and before I knew it, I was being whisked off to the operating room.

“Breathe deeply and count to ten”

In what seemed like no more than a minute, my eyes were fluttering open and I realized that I was in recovery. Something in me expected an extreme amount of pain, but there was nothing. I chalk it up to a wonderful anesthesiologist and the very talented hands of Dr. Rose. I had some chills as a side effect of the general anesthesia, but no actual pain. They kept me overnight and while the soreness and discomfort did set in the following day, it was very easily managed and while walking, felt like I had simply done an incredibly intense leg workout. There was the quintessential “hunch” that comes with having the abdominoplasty, but I was able to stand up straight within a few days. Believe it or not, I went for sushi with some friends the very next evening!

It sounds so cliché, but the only regret that I have in this whole experience is not doing it sooner. The staff at Utopia MedSpa were so welcoming and supportive throughout the entire process, and I could not be more happy with the incredible job of Dr. Rose.

Buh-bye baby belly!

Buh-bye baby belly!

This is the second summer that I’ll be able to confidently spend in a bikini. I have finally regained self-assurance in my body and continue to set a good example for my son by eating properly and living and active lifestyle. I’m very proud to be able to say that I made an honest effort to get my body back in shape prior to the procedure, but wouldn’t think twice about encouraging other women to go through with the Mommy Makeover if they’re looking for a wonderful way to get back their pre-baby body.
