UNDER THE KNIFE: Who is Houston’s best plastic surgeon? That depends on who you ask, so we’ve asked around
BY SHELBY HODGE
Interesting how every fall, when the social scene starts ginning again, the swans return often more lovely than when they departed in June. Could it be the cooler climes of Nantucket and Colorado, the stress reduction or something else?
We say, something else.
Nips and tucks, resurfacing and fillers — yes, that’s the business of age-defying summer beautification that delivers a blush of youth to our leading ladies (and some gents). June, July and August, when everyone is either hibernating indoors or out of town beating the heat, is prime time for a little personal rejuvenation. But who to turn to when the mirror shouts middle age or worse?
As there is no concrete means of measuring the skills of the deep pool of area plastic surgeons, we have done the next best thing. We asked those at the center of the city’s social swirl which docs are currently enjoying the most buzz.
Of course, Houston’s most out-there, high-profile plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose made the cut.
With the near-miracle of youth-generating fillers that are proliferating, Becca Cason Thrash says that many of her friends are avoiding the knife, opting instead for the needle.
This is not to say that there are not many more top-notch plastic surgeons in the city. These are simply the ones who the ladies discuss over lunch at Brasserie 19 or at Tony’s.
