Board-certified plastic surgeon Franklin A. Rose, MD is a nationally renowned surgeon overseeing his practice at Utopia Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa in Uptown Park. Dr. Rose is often consulted for his expertise on the latest surgical techniques and trends and has been featured on numerous television shows and magazines such as Allure, CNN, Wall Street Journal, Dr. Phil, Entertainment Tonight, ABC Primetime, Inside Edition, and countless others.
Trusted by nearly a hundred celebrities and reality stars nationally, including ABC’s The Bachelorette Trista Sutter, The Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi, Shah’s of Sunset Lilly Ghalichi, and more, Dr. Rose is highly sought after for his beautiful results. Dr. Rose says choosing the right plastic surgeon and preserving a beautiful and natural look for his patients is key. “When it comes to plastic surgeons,” he says, “The patient has to be careful about whom they choose. I think when you do good work you become known for that.”
Patients pull up an image when visiting our office, celebrity or not, on their cell phones and ask for what they want,” Dr. Rose says, “For years, people wanted to look like Angelina Jolie, wanting her lips. Patients come in and want Kim Kardashian’s buttocks. This has been going on since I’ve been in practice,” Rose says, “Photos of celebrities can be very helpful in the surgery planning phase,” the surgeon said. “I can get a better idea of what’s in a patient’s head, what features they most admire.”
The newer facelifts he’s doing on his patients use highly innovative techniques such as smaller incisions and cells from the patient’s own fat, for less pain, shorter recovery time, and beautiful results. Dr. Rose says, “Most patients want a natural-looking nose that is not too sculpted or pinched looking, facelifts patients don’t want to look too tight, liposuction patients don’t want any irregularities, so it’s a very natural look that is always the goal. Our team at Utopia Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa is integral to providing the highest quality of care to everyone who visits our office in Uptown Park for the latest in surgical and non-invasive technology. We’re pleased to offer a wide range of cosmetic solutions for both women and men, including facelifts, nose and eyelid surgery, breast augmentation, liposuction, and much more.”
