Rachael shares her breast augmentation story: http://drfranklinrosemd.com/botched-plastic-surgery-breast-augmentation-repaired-dr-franklin-rose/asher-hooters-breast-augmentation-houston (2)Rachael Asher after revision breast augmentation by Dr. Franklin Rose photo by Tracy Hicks www.tracyhicksphotography.com

“I found Dr. Rose through a friend and  I had heard he is the best doctor in Houston.  I was in search of a skilled doctor because I was having pain in my right breast due to a breast augmentation performed when I was 20 years old by another Houston doctor.  Upon consultation; Dr. Rose informed my that the other doctor had over-lacerated my right breast causing pressure on my nerve.  He explained to me that what he could do is cut further in and up; which meant going bigger.  I decided to go through with the reconstructive breast repair surgery.  Of course I decided if I was going to have them redone I was going to get the new silicone ‘gummy bear’ breast implants.  After the swelling and bruising went away I was amazed by the look of them and the fact that I no longer had pain!

“Everywhere I go I get asked who did my breast augmentation because they look so great.”

I work at Hooters and Dr. Rose had told me before the surgery that I would make the Hooters Calendar.  Well he was right!  I was picked to be a part of the Hooters 2014 calendar! I had planned on quitting Hooters, but I was talked into trying out for the calendar one last time.  I recently placed top ten in the Hooters Texas State Pageant and will now be going to the Hooters  International Pageant and will be competing for the chance to be Ms. Hooters International! Everywhere I go I get asked who did my breast augmentation because they look so great.  Dr. Rose has truly changed my life.  The door for opportunities has been opened for me.  One thing I really love about the revision breast augmentation he did for me is the fact that he eliminated the gap between them that was there from my previous breast augmentation surgery.  I am more confident and have NO PAIN now!”

BOTCHED Plastic Surgery repaired by Dr. Franklin Rose Friday on CH 2

International Plastic Surgery, is it Safe? Many Americans Are Heading to Mexico for Cut-Rate Lipo, Face-Lifts and Breast Augmentation. But Buyers Beware: Some Find Good Deals—and Some Find Less than what they Bargained For

See Linda’s story featured as on KPRC Friday, April 24th at 10pm with Health Reporter Haley Hernandez on Channel 2 in Houston.

Haley-Hernandez-pic2014HOUSTON, TX; April 24, 2015 – For most, a trip to an tropical international destination is a great time to relax, unwind, catch up on rest and sip on fruity drinks with umbrellas.

But a growing number of Americans are partaking in a trend known as medical tourism or makeover travel, where they fly or drive across the border for inexpensive cosmetic surgery. There’s no insurance involved and it’s cheap. Several years ago, Houstonian Linda R. traveled to Tijuana, Mexico for a face lift.

According to Linda, during her initial consultation, the doctor assured her he would give her the look she wanted.

“I wanted a little bit of a lift, and the doctor said, ‘I know what you need,'” said Linda.

The results were not what she had bargained for, leaving her with improperly placed cheek implants permanently screwed into place along with tell-tale unsightly scarring to her face.

Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose recently performed Juvederm injections to correct the asymmetry caused by improperly placed cheek implants that Linda received while on surgical holiday in Mexico.

Linda found out the hard way — cheaper isn’t always better.

“When I woke up, I had these cheek implants. Oh my God, I did not ask for the cheek implants. I was stunned, shaken by whole event and started crying,” she said.

Her left cheek implant has now moved down her face and a consultation back in Houston revealed the implants were actually screwed in.

Pointing to her cheeks, she said, “This one is higher and this one’s lower. This is where the tops are. That’s how far down it went.”

The facelift, the reason Linda originally went to Mexico, was botched as well.

“You can see her scars actually are very thick,” said renowned Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose.

Rose said each year at least six or seven patients come in to fix their botched surgeries done in another country.

“I’ve seen some very troublesome, really botched disastrous results. I’ve seen breast implants extruding through the skin with holes,” said Rose.

The American Society of Plastic Surgery warns there are serious risks to international surgery. The group said it’s difficult to verify the training and credentials of surgeons performing the procedures, and not all facilities meet the same safety standards we’re accustomed to in the U.S.

Rose said patients are best served by a board certified plastic surgeon. He said with international surgery, the risks get higher and eventually outweigh the cost savings.

“In an office suite somewhere in Latin America, you just have no idea about the equipment, about the sterility, about anything,” said Rose. “They might go to Latin America and they might get away with something and it might be an OK result, but why tempt fate?”

Linda had her botched cheek implants corrected by Rose. She might’ve been trying to save money on the facelift, but she still had to pay to get the surgery corrected.

As a warning to other women, all Linda said is, “I’ve always regretted it to this day.”

If you are shopping for a plastic surgeon in the U.S., verify that they are certified in the specialty by the The American Board of Plastic Surgery.

HOUSTON, TX; March 2015 –  Rodeo time is here in Houston which means it’s time to break out the cowboy & cowgirl boots and jeans for the month of March.  But for many women, boot & jeans season (especially jeans shopping) can be a total pain the calves. Yes, we’re talking about the dreaded “boot bulge,” when your calves can’t squeeze into popular tight-fitting, knee-high styles. 

Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose recently performed calf-reduction liposuction surgery on Monica’s ankles, calves, thighs, and knee areas to give her legs better definition so she can look her best in her boots & jeans this year.

Women turn to surgery to get the perfect fit for rodeo boots –

Published On: Mar 13 2015

Read the original story and review the video here: http://www.click2houston.com/news/women-turn-to-surgery-to-get-perfect-fit-for-rodeo-boots/31791258

HOUSTON – “The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo doesn’t just bring out the best in livestock and entertainment.

It’s all about the fashion, too — from the hats, jeans belts and of course the boots.

For some women, finding the perfect pair of boots is nearly impossible, and they’re willing to go under the knife for slimmer legs.

Monica, 39, is one of those women. This year Monica decided to take a drastic step towards getting the calves of her dreams by having calf boot surgery, also known as calf liposuction.

“When I wear boots, I like the gap when I see it on other women,” Monica said. “Like they have the gap with their outfit and I’m like, ‘That’s what I want my leg to look like.'”

Monica went to renowned Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose.

“Calf liposuction is actually frequently requested,” Rose said. “Fortunately, in Monica’s case, she has good amendable fat.”

To give her calves a more symmetrical and contoured look, Rose also performed liposuction on Escobar’s knees and thighs.

Escobar’s entire surgery took about an hour and a half. The cost was $4,000.

“I can already see a difference, I’m really excited,” Escobar said.

She is already making plans to enjoy the final week of this year’s rodeo.”
