Why look like yourself when you can look like Ivanka Trump

Now in the national spotlight like never before, Ivanka Trump has become an inspiration for an unlikely group of women: those seeking plastic surgery.

“In my practice, Ivanka is sort of the new style icon for plastic surgery,” Franklin Rose, a surgeon based in Houston, TX, told USA Today. “In the last year and a half, I’ve seen several patients who came in with pictures of Ivanka. The Ivanka thing is very widespread, at least in Texas.”

Two of Rose’s patients, Jenny Stewart and Tiffany Taylor, shared just how much they paid to look like the First Lady, I mean…First Daughter. Stewart spent six hours and $30,000 (she got a discount for agreeing to do advertising for the surgeon) to have her nose reshaped, her breasts augmented, her face injected with fillers and her buttocks lifted via liposuction. The same procedures cost Taylor $60,000.

“I was very much interested in the election, and that’s when I started thinking she was pretty. I thought Ivanka was classically pretty and not overdone,” Stewart said. “I had always admired her appearance, but then I started seeing her more often in the media. She was right there and still is. I follow her on Instagram and Facebook and I see her in my news feed.”

And in case you were wondering, Jenny Stewart voted for Hillary Clinton. If there’s one thing that brings people of different political parties together, it’s evidently Ivanka Trump’s looks. Hopefully Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau does not take this to heart. [USA Today]
