Female Police Officer featured on the “Today Show,” and 2014 State of the Union Address in Washington D.C. was injured when shot in the face and chest – plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose repairs her wounds and scar tissue in Houston.
HOUSTON, TX – Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose performed necessary reconstructive surgery for Houston mom and hero police officer Ann Carrizales following her traumatic injury to her face and breast caused by gunshot wounds to the head and neck.
During a routine traffic stop in October 2013 Texas police officer and former United States Marine Ann Carrizales took two bullets at point-blank range resulting in traumatic injury to her chest when the kevlar pierced her “bullet-proof” vest causing a large disfiguring wound into the breast area. Nonetheless, she chased and apprehended the suspect even while terribly wounded.
Ann says, “The incident itself (taking the gun shots) was the easy part, compared to the healing process both physically and emotionally has really proven to be the most difficult aspect for me so far. The real challenge continues to be my journey back to health and healing which I do admit the resulting pain and trauma at times has brought me to my knees. Dr. Rose has been an amazing help to me on this journey to help me feel better and I want to continue to share my story of healing with others.”
Noted Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose performed reconstructive surgery on Ann and repaired some of the significant and disfiguring damage due to her traumatic injuries on May 22.
UPDATE: Ann’s story was featured on NBC with Emmy award-winning anchor Dominique Sachse on KPRC Channel 2 in Houston – Tuesday, July 8th at 10pm.

HOUSTON — Breast implants are popular in the world of plastic surgery, but a new kind of implant has mostly women, from teens to grandmas, lining up at plastic surgeons’ offices.
It’s something small, but patients and plastic surgeons alike say it can make all the difference in redefining face shape.
Diana wanted one to enhance her profile.
“Being in real estate, you’re self-conscious, you know,” she says. “It’s all about image.”
But she’s doesn’t want a nose job. Instead, Diana’s going under for something a little more subtle — a chin implant.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ report says chin augmentations were the second most-popular type of implant performed in 2012.
Diana’s best friend even has one.
“Even though it looks pretty small, it’s going to give her just the right amount of profile plasty,” reviews Dr. Franklin Rose.
The doctor creates a small incision inside the patient’s mouth, making a pocket for it, before placing it inside and aligning it properly. The entire process from start to finish takes only 30 to 40 minutes.
It’s a quick procedure with no visible scarring and lasting results.

Men are Increasingly turning to Cosmetic Procedures to Remain Competitive in the Workplace
Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men are on the Rise – Even as Oil Prices Plummet
HOUSTON, TX; 2016 – THE CHANGING FACE OF PLASTIC SURGERY: As business executives in Houston are becoming concerned over the falling price of oil, plastic surgery procedures for men are quickly gaining in popularity for those like-minded men who wish to remain vital and youthful looking in an increasingly competitive workforce. The recent drop in oil prices has affected all sectors of business in Texas not limited to the energy and manufacturing industries and the long term effect of many business activities effected slowing down remains to be seen.
HOT NEW TRENDS IN PLASTIC SURGERY: KHOU CH 11 with Lily Jang & Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose
Emmy nominated journalist & morning news anchor Lily Jang featured Dr. Franklin Rose and patients as they discussed the hottest trends in plastic surgery today.
Lily visited with prominent attorney Mitchell Katine who has argued before the United States Supreme Court who came to Dr. Rose looking for a more youthful appearance while still maintaining a natural look. Often we see men who seek a rhinoplasty following a sports injury or to improve breathing function. More and more, men are visiting the plastic surgeon desiring to improve specific problem areas of the aging face such as the neck, cheek and jowl areas. Plastic surgery procedures for men are becoming more common-place for men of all ages than ever!
With oil prices continuing to decline more than 60% in recent months, many men are choosing to adapt to this new trend in order to remain both attractive as well as gain an edge up on their younger colleagues.
According to recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (the largest group of board certified plastic surgeons in the world) there were 15.9 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the United States in 2015, which represents a significant increase over 2014. In particular, the present President of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, David H. Song, M.D. stated: “As plastic surgery is becoming more common and accepted in men, we are seeing more of them undergo procedures…” Procedures such as facial rejuvenation including eye lifts, face lifts and brow lifts are becoming much more widely accepted among men.
Minimally-invasive procedures for men such as Botox and filler injections like Juvederm along with traditional facelifts have greatly increased in demand as well. These popular procedures improve the appearance for those men who have wrinkles or frown lines that cause them to appear permanently tired or angry; minimally invasive techniques such as injectable treatments do not require any downtime like a facelift: which requires a recovery time of up to two weeks away from the office.
One such patient is Attorney Mitchell Katine, an attorney in his mid-50’s, who recently underwent facial and eyelid rejuvenation performed by well-known Houston plastic surgeon Franklin A. Rose, M.D. of Utopia Plastic Surgery. After a short interval away from work, Mr. Katine was able to return to his full responsibilities as a practicing attorney. Mr. Katine successfully won landmark legislation at the United States Supreme Court regarding LGBT rights.
“Male plastic surgery rates have significantly increased since 2014 and the idea that plastic surgery procedures are just for women no longer applies,” says Dr. Franklin Rose. “Men are seeking to regain a more youthful look, improve their self-image and feel better about their appearance. It’s fortunate that we now have appropriate techniques specifically to address a man’s aging face to meet men’s desires and often exceed their expectations.”
