Favorite Dr. Franklin Rose Reviews J.J. Watt’s Impending Nose Job & Plastic Surgery Options

Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose sheds light on J.J. Watt’s impending nose jobJJ-Watt-bloody-nose_culturemap

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.

HOUSTON (FOX 26) – Angelina Jolie and Sharon Osborne have both made their decision to undergo a double mastectomy public. You may also remember earlier this year Miss Washington DC announced she too carried a genetic mutation that increases her chances of getting breast cancer, but you don’t have to go too far too find women just like them.

“It’s a life or death decision, it’s not something you ponder over too much,” said Nancy J. who had her first stint with breast cancer at age 32. She underwent radiation and later was advised to take the BRCA test. The test checks for mutations in two genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2. Since Jacobs already had breast cancer the test indicated the chances of a re-occurrence. A high score for her meant undergoing a double mastectomy.

“Our breasts as women are how we look at ourselves, it’s our femininity, it’s who we are in a way,” She said, “I can remember looking in the mirror the night before it happened and crying.”

But looking back now Nancy wishes she could’ve taken the test sooner and made the decision to remove her breasts earlier.

“In my case I went for the less drastic procedure because I was young I wanted to retain my breasts,” she said.

There is currently no standard criteria for referring anyone for genetic testing, but it’s recommended women with a family history of breast and ovarian cancer also take it.

The test however costs about $3,000.

“In speaking with my gynecology colleagues, they have great difficult grappling with some of the third party insurance carriers to get the test covered,” reviews Dr. Franklin Rose. He has performed hundreds if not thousands of reconstructive surgeries on double mastectomy patients.

He is helping Jacobs with her reconstructive process, one he says that can have a tremendous effect on how women feel about their bodies post-op.

“As it would relate to psychological impact of reconstructive surgery, just body image and self-esteem are so much improved,” he said.

Jacobs applauds Jolie’s decision to tell her story, but she hopes in the near future genetic testing of this kind is more accessible to all women.
