HOUSTON, TX; March 27th, 2013 – Houston Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose, known for his work on the hit reality TV show MTV’s I Want a Famous Face and recently noted for his work on Ashley Lohan (Lindsay Lohan’s sister) was featured on Thursday on ABC’s Nightline for his transformation of Kitty, a Houston woman who recently underwent seven operations in one setting to look more like her favorite celebrity, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence.
Kitty underwent seven surgeries last month to look like Jennifer Lawrence, including a rhinoplasty, fat grafts to build and augment her cheek bone area, liposuction under her cheeks and neck for facial contouring, liposuction to her hips and thighs, a Brazilian buttock lift, and breast augmentation.
Emmy award-winning journalist and special correspondent JuJu Chang followed Dr. Rose and his patient Kitty before, during, and after surgery to reveal her transformation for ABC Nightline that aired on Thursday at 11:30pm on channel 13 following the Jimmy Kimmel show.
March 27, 2014 – Kitty is a mega-fan of the spirited voluptuous Jennifer Lawrence, so much so that she underwent six plastic surgery procedures to carve herself into looking more like the “American Hustle” star.
“I can appreciate that her personality is spunky and fun,” Kitty said. “I can appreciate that her body is banging.”
Call it plastic surgery 2.0., where aspirations to look like a starlet are inspired by personality, good looks and self-empowerment.
“I’m not trying to look like Pamela Anderson here during her ‘Baywatch’ days,” Kitty said. “I’m trying to look like a very capable, very personal level-headed female who is an Academy Award winner.”
A 30-year-old dog trainer, a wife and mother to a 5-year-old daughter, Kitty embarked on a four-week odyssey in February at First Surgical Hospital in Houston, Texas.
“I am a strong woman,” she said. “I am in charge of how I look and I can change that and then change that again if I want.”
Dr. Franklin Rose, Kitty’s surgeon, who heads Utopia Plastic Surgery MedSpa in Houston, said patients will bring in images of “any number of well-known celebrities” and ask for “certain noses, lips, breasts,” among other things.
“Patients come in wanting to have lips like Angelina Jolie, breasts like Scarlett Johansson, Megan Fox,” he said.
But is this sort of extreme makeover, where patients are willing to have their features altered to look like one of Hollywood’s elite, psychologically healthy? Dr. Rose said he has had to turn some patients away.
“By this point in my career, after evaluating 14-15,000 new consultations, you can tell very quickly within a matter of a minute if the patient is well adjusted or not well adjusted for whatever the procedure they might present,” he said.
Kitty underwent liposuction to her face and body, a breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and fat grafts to her cheeks and buttocks. The entire procedure took six hours and her recovery took a several weeks.
Kitty says that over the last few years, the more famous Jennifer Lawrence has become, the more she has heard from friends and strangers about her resemblance to the actress.
“The more I’ve looked at her, the more I’ve realized that her features are sort of my features but more refined,” she said.
Kitty met with Dr. Rose and said she “went in and said ‘this person resembles me so much, Jennifer Lawrence looks like me but look I like this more about her face, I like this more about her body and can I get these upgrades.'”
Her motivation to get surgery was also fueled by motherhood, “the reason why I decided to get surgery is because post having my daughter, I wasn’t quite as comfortable with my body,” she said. “I don’t think you have to be crazy to want to look better or feel better about yourself. That’s not crazy.”
Eric, her husband, wasn’t convinced his wife needed cosmetic surgery.
“Jennifer Lawrence isn’t a celebrity that I have particularly strong feelings about one way or another,” he said. “It’s totally her choice.”
Kitty is part of a younger generation of women who are happy to pay the costs and take on the risks of plastic surgery to channel their inner-favorite celebrity.
Kitty’s was ecstatic with the results.
“Of course I look like Jennifer Lawrence,” she said. “I thought I had a resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence before my surgery and now I think after, my features are more refined to where they resemble her more.” – By JUJU CHANG

J.J. Watt‘s tendency to violently collide with big men led to a deep gash on the bridge of his nose, one which required stitches earlier this season. The wound has been reopened repeatedly since then, resulting in a permanent and rather unsightly mark on the Houston Texans’ second-time Pro Bowler .
With a nightmarish season set to end Sunday in Tennessee, the defensive end told Associated Press reporter Kristie Rieken earlier this week that he is considering plastic surgery to correct the damage — mostly at the behest of his mother.
“She hates it,” Watt told the AP.
CultureMap spoke with Houston’s Dr. Franklin Rose — plastic surgeon to the stars — to review the advantages of such a procedure for Watt.
“Cosmetic surgery would serve to stabilize the injury and allow for further athletic endeavors,” Rose says. “(Watt) would likely need external scar revisions.”
The doctor is referring to a process which minimizes the appearance of scars.
Dr. Rose adds that the procedure would be good a idea and not just for cosmetic reasons — but for structural reasons, too. He says it would reduce the fracture in the nose which could possibly be causing Watt “nasal airway obstruction.”
Watt’s often seen on the sidelines with blood pouring from the gash on his face and the injury has left a significant indentation and red mark at the top of his nose.
The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year received stitches following the two games after the initial injury, but that didn’t stop the wound from breaking open and bleeding every time he played. Watt eventually gave up and decided to stop having it repaired after each game.
Now, he might have it fixed for good in the offseason.
