Ivanka Chinese facelifts suggest that women abroad want to look just like President Donald Trump's daughter, and a Chinese company is advancing the trend.
Some women in the U.S. have undergone plastic surgery to look like Ivanka Trump, and it now seems like women in China have been inspired to do the same, according to People magazine.
A cosmetic-surgery firm in China went as far as to add Ivanka Trump’s name to the name that their company is registered as.
According to The Washington Post, the company, which is located in Foshan, China, is registered as Foshan Yiwanka Medical Management.
The firm added “Yiwanka” to its name prior to the 2016 election. Yiwanka is the rendition of Ivanka’s name in Chinese, People magazine noted.
“Young women in China like to change their looks to copy film stars’ eyes, noses and lips,” Li Yunxing, the company’s human resources manager, told the Post. “No doubt young women here want Ivanka’s big eyes, her pretty nose and lips, and her flawless figure.”
Dr. Marc Mani, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, said it’s not unusual for Chinese patients to undergo cosmetic surgery to look more like certain American celebrities, according to People magazine.
“The Chinese culture embraces plastic surgery as much as any,” Mani told People magazine. “I’ve had Chinese patients come to me asking to look like celebrities. Ivanka Trump’s face in particular appeals to the Chinese aesthetic because it’s close to their ideal – large eyes; a heart-shaped face with a small, feminine chin and cheekbones that are high but not overly defined; and a nose that is small but with a stronger bridge as opposed to flat.”
Mani added that despite this not being uncommon, he doesn’t necessarily jump at the opportunity to perform these types of surgeries.
“Unless they are already close to that look and want a little refinement I won’t do it,” he said. “There are certain individuals from many cultures – including China – who would have a complete face transplant if it would make them more successful. To me that’s a bit of denial of the soul and very sad. But the patients I have had from China are typically already very successful and just want to look younger or more beautiful.”
While Chinese women appear to be big fans of the president’s oldest daughter, many don’t know where they stand when it comes to her, and that has a lot to do with President Trump and the controversy that’s surrounded him since his political career started, according to Allure.
Many have boycotted brands that Ivanka is connected to, and she’s even been dropped by certain companies.
In early February, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus severed ties from Ivanka’s label. The label is no longer on Belk’s brand list either.
