Ever since the Republican primaries last year in 2016, women of New York with a buck to spend have been coming into their plastic surgeon’s office with only one thing on their mind: ‘I wanna look like Ivanka Trump.
According to Dr Norman Rowe, a well-known surgeon who works only with the rich and famous of Manhattan, the demand for an Ivanka look, which is widened cheekbones, large eyes and a slender nose, has landed on his desk more often than ever since Donald Trump brought her on the stage with him during his primary speeches.
Patients spend some thirty to forty thousand dollars to achieve a soft version the said look which is completed with fillers and Botox. If patients decide to go for the fuller version, they are looking at fifty thousand dollars for what she refers to as the “Permanent Ivanka”, which is complemented by cheek implants and rhinoplasty.
Dr. Rowe: “I never saw anyone drawing inspiration from Ivanka’s face before the primary, since the summer of ’16 . . . it’s been maybe four a month; one a week. Maybe they just like the look, but also that Ivanka is a powerful woman, self-confident, part of the first family. Do they want to be her? Yes, deep down, maybe.”
Ivanka Trump is climbing the charts of the most sought-after face apparently. She now rivals Kylie Jenner for the number one spot. Others in the New York top ten include Nathalie Portman, Miranda Kerr, and Cara Delevigne. People come and go into that top ten apparently, though Kylie Jenner has been trending for quite a while now. US wide it’s more a Kim Kardashian butt that comes up, but we are losing the point I feel.
We asked Dr. Rowe whether anyone has ever gone for a ‘The Donald’ look. He responded: “No, I’ve never had anybody come in and say, ‘Make me into a Donald!’ ”
