Texas Woman Spends $60,000 on Plastic Surgery to Look Like Ivanka Trump
Tiffany Taylor says she first began admiring Ivanka Trump two years ago.
“She had her shoes and her lifestyle brand, and her blog inspired me,” Taylor, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She’s so beautiful, so classy, so elegant, and a mom.”
“I liked her classic features,” says Taylor. “She has a lot of things that are really elegant and pretty on her face.”
Over the next eight months, Taylor — who splits her time between Abilene and Houston, Texas — underwent a number of procedures costing $60,000 to complete her transformation, including two breast augmentations, liposuction, cheek injections, a mini facelift, a mini eyelift, two nose jobs and an eye procedure to make them appear more open.
The mom-of-three says her surgeries were “absolutely” worth the cost, and proudly displays the results in the before and after photos above.
“I feel more refined and polished, and ready to conquer the business world,” says Taylor, who doesn’t think she looks exactly like Trump, but “like myself with features modeled after what she has.”
And even though she has had an extensive plastic surgery makeover, Taylor says she may not be done going under the knife.
“I feel like there’s still a little bit of a bump on my nose, but they say healing can take a year so I’m definitely going to wait,” she says. “Maybe later I’d do lipo and do a mommy makeover if I have more kids. I do fillers and Botox and I’m not going to stop with that.”

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Rey, who has not performed surgery on Taylor, says it’s not uncommon for patients to model their plastic surgery on a celebrity they admire.
“It’s very common for a patient to come to the clinic and bring a photo of someone, normally a celebrity, to show me what they want to look like,” he tells PEOPLE. “That is very helpful because, for example, then we know what size to make the buttocks or breast.”
Rey notes that while modeling body parts after a public figure is normal, it may be a cause for concern if a patient wants to look identical to that person.
“I have had several people in my 27 years of surgery who asked to be identical to a certain celebrity in every way. That person sometimes benefits from a psychiatric evaluation,” he says. “To want to become somebody is severe body dysmorphia, and should be treated by a psychiatrist rather than a scalpel.”
