Happy New Year: The Busiest Season for Cosmetic Surgery

Beauty takes no holiday.

Happy New Year: The Busiest Season for Cosmetic Surgery December, particularly the latter half, is the busiest time of the year for many plastic surgeons, cosmetic dermatologists and doctors who perform weight-loss operations like gastric bypass. Some doctors say they do twice as many of these elective procedures per day in this period as during the rest of the year.

The reason: After many cosmetic procedures patients want to go underground during the days-long recovery period, which might involve swelling, bruising and oozing. The holiday season makes it easier to avoid interacting with others at work or in school car pools. This year, with Christmas and New Year’s both falling on weekends, a patient can be under the knife or laser beams early in the week and still be presentable by the time the parties start.

For plastic surgeons, the most popular procedures for December are those that require the most time for healing, like face-lifts. Dr. Franklin Rose, a plastic surgeon in Houston, says this month has been his busiest ever. He performed about 20 operations a week, twice the norm during the year. He routinely was operating well into the night, missing out on visits to the gym and attending holiday parties with family. “With surgeons in December, you can have some unhappy wives,” Dr. Rose says.

“The #Ivanka Effect!”

UPDATED: Plastic Surgery to Look Like Ivanka Trump?

View the video as aired Nov 5 on Inside Edition below click on the image:

Houston, Texas; November 2018 – Move over Melania – Ivanka is poised to be the NEW “Plastic Surgery Pin Up Girl!” As Ivanka Trump continues to make the news, more and more people are reporting to want to be like her — or at least look like her

Sarah is one such patient who sought out Dr. Franklin Rose for her “Ivanka Makeover.” Sarah’s extensive face and body surgeries included a including a rhinoplasty (nose job), fillers to her cheeks, chin, & lips, liposuction under her cheeks and chin along with liposuction to her upper arms, lower back, abdomen, hips & thighs, with brazilian buttock lift (fat grafts to the buttock area) to achieve Ivanka’s svelte look.

Via Metro UK:

“This might be the 1000th very, very beautiful patient that I’ve operated on; in an odd way, it’s sort of more enjoyable because you can take the beautiful into the hyper-beautiful,” says Dr. Franklin Rose, who received tremendous international media attention when he performed multiple plastic surgeries on a breast cancer survivor wanting to look like First Lady, Melania Trump…..now he is helping his patient Sarah Schmidt achieve her dream of looking more like First Daughter Ivanka Trump!  “I have had many women visit my office wanting the ‘Ivanka Look’ and so it’s not really surprising to see even MORE women now requesting to look more like Ivanka, who is poised, elegant, and graceful.”

Where Beauty and Wellness Meet a Pretty Face & Skinny Waist……

ABOUT AURA PEPTIDES: CJC1295/Ipamorelin is the combination of two compounds, CJC1295 and Ipamorelin that work together to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland during REM sleep. The combination of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin has been developed because the two can act together on the pituitary and hypothalamus to increase levels of growth hormone in your body. It is done in this way to maximize the amount of growth hormone being released into your body for antiaging therapeutic benefit while acting on two separate families of receptors.

Why would I want to use CJC 1295/Ipamorelin?

“October is annual national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which gives me a chance to give back to the community which has become my home,” says Venezuela born Silva. “I have been closely touched by breast cancer as my aunt and two close friends have died from this terrible disease.”

Silva has set up a fundraising page at Eventbrite here: (https://www.eventbrite.com/o/escarle-silva-15274202182) for the $25 event tickets and a GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/womenfightingcancer-makeover-day to collect donations to the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, a non-profit organization that assists breast cancer survivors with reconstructive surgery.

Over the past five years, Silva has graciously treated over 120 cancer survivors with complimentary makeovers at her salon. Two years ago, she received a proclamation on October 13 as “Escarle Silva Day” from the mayor of Houston.
