We all know mothers and daughters who shop together, laugh together, and consider themselves best friends, so isn’t it fitting to go under the knife together as well? SignatureForum recently ran an article about couples plastic surgery in Japan, but it appears couples plastic surgery is on the rise across the planet. Plastic surgeons have noticed a trend in couples cosmetic surgery, including husbands and wives, sisters, friends, and, the most popular of all, mother/daughter plastic surgery.
Statistics from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that 34% of facial plastic surgeons reported an increase in couples cosmetic surgery, with the majority of that being mother/daughter plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons don’t know what the sudden increase is linked to, but many speculate that it has to do with both the demystification of the plastic surgery process and an effort to increase mother-daughter bonding.
With surgery, mother-daughter bonding can occur through simple moral support, the shared experience of cosmetic surgery, or even having someone else to go through the sometimes painful healing process with. Lauren-Beth Kassinger, a professional dancer and model, got rhinoplasty with her mother in 2003. She says of the experience, “I definitely am closer to my mom because of it. It is traumatic. It is a big change.” She wouldn’t want anyone else to be with her through such big steps.
Popular mother-daughter plastic surgeries include facelifts, nose jobs, and breast augmentation. Mothers raise you, feed you, clean your diapers, teach you to walk, and it looks like they’ll be there for your breast implants as well.
