A New York plastic surgeon says that since the 2016 Republican National Convention, he has seen a deluge of patients who want to look like Ivanka Trump.
Women started coming to his office with pictures of Ivanka, or simply asking if he could make them look more like Ivanka Trump, said Dr. Norman Rowe a plastic surgeon.
Dr. Rowe said that since last summer, up to 50 clients have asked him to give them the Ivanka look — which he describes as widened cheekbones, a slender nose and large eyes.
A woman named Tiffany Taylor said that in her efforts to look more like Ivanka Trump, she had 13 surgeries, and she is not done. Taylor claims that her nose was messed up along the way, so she came to see Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow on the E! show, Botched.
Tiffany said that looking like Ivanka is her dream.
“I’ve had 13 surgeries,” Tiffany told Dubrow and Nassif. “I was so pretty before, but I am just more elegant now.”
Dr. Rowe says that patients can spend between $30-40,000 to achieve the look with temporary fillers and Botox, or $45-50,000 for what he calls the “Permanent Ivanka” — a version achieved with cheek implants and rhinoplasty. “I never saw [anyone drawing inspiration from Ivanka’s face] before the primary,” said Rowe, “since the summer of ’16 . . . [it’s been] maybe four a month; one a week.”
Tiffany claimed that Ivanka Trump was the perfect all American beauty, but didn’t seem to know that Ivanka had also had plastic surgery on her face.
But Tiffany Taylor is obviously not the only one seeking to look like Ivanka Trump because Dr. Rowe seems to believe that plastic surgery to look like Ivanka is big business.
Rowe says that Donald Trump’s oldest daughter now rivals Kylie Jenner as the most sought-after celebrity face.
“Maybe they just like the look, but also that [Ivanka’s] a powerful woman, self-confident, part of the first family. Do they want to be her? Yes, deep down, maybe.”
The cosmetic surgeon says that New Yorkers’ left-leaning tendencies don’t seem to put them off.
“I don’t think it plays a role in the least,” he said. “I think it has to do with somebody who you respect the way they look, and I don’t think it’s anything to do with whether you’re blue or red.”
However, her dad doesn’t seem to be having the same effect.
“No, I’ve never had anybody come in and say, ‘Make me into a Donald!’ ”
