Houston’s plastic surgery patriarch Dr. Franklin Rose took his cosmetic surgery know how to the tube for ABC’s Primetime special with Lisa Ling titled Celebrity Plastic Surgery Gone Too Far?
“The statistics show ever-increasing numbers of younger patients,” Franklin Rose tells CultureMap, “so while the special focuses on celebrity plastic surgery, I am interviewed on the cultural influence on younger people.”
Dr. Rose was interviewed for the Primetime slot alongside two patients, the 17-year-old Tracy Karp, who received a rhinoplasty and 19-year-old Caitlin Clemmins.
“I gave her a beautiful breast augmentation,” Rose says. “We took her from an A cup to a full C cup when she was 19.”
The special explores the appropriateness of young people going under the knife, but Rose argues that he only selects patients who are emotionally stable and stand to benefit from the self-esteem boost.
Dr. Franklin Rose is no stranger to the camera — he’s appeared on Dr. Phil, Entertainment Tonight, and MTV’s I Want a Famous Face. He’s also the father of reality TV star/law student Erica Rose (of The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad) and the husband of socialite silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose.
“They’re hoping for a ratings smash,” Rose says.
