Mother-Daughter Plastic Surgery Trends

2635223110_d32cb10e47Cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are an increasingly popular trend, especially with so much focus on maintaining youth and beauty from various media outlets. Recently, the emergence of “Couples Surgery,” specifically mother-daughter plastic surgery, has made headlines. It has been reported that the mothers are the first to undergo some type of face and/or body enhancing procedure, while their daughters follow in their footsteps shortly after or at the same time.

As it was seen in 2009 in the television program, “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Lynne Curtin and her daughter Raquel underwent a facelift and nose surgery, respectively. Recently, former model Christie Brinkley and her daughter Alexa Joel also had the same procedures. This trend is now extending throughout the country, with several brides and their mothers undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery months before the wedding. While some may opt for extensive procedures, such as breast augmentation, liposuction, and/or tummy tuck surgery; there are also those who choose to receive minimally invasive treatments, such as Botox ® injections.

In addition, mothers and daughters who share a similar “family trait” have been known to undergo the same procedure, such as nasal surgery. However, some plastic surgeons have been known to turn away patients who are “over critical” of their daughter’s “flaws.” Although it may be a bonding experience for a mother and her daughter, others appear to be “stage-mothering” when visiting a plastic surgeon. Other instances include women who want to look better than their daughters and undergo extensive surgery to do so. These patients may also be turned away if the surgeon does not deem them psychologically healthy to undergo surgery.

In Orange County, plastic surgery specialist Andres Taleisnik, M.D. performs various face, breasts, and body enhancing surgeries. A board certified plastic surgeon in Orange County, Dr. Taleisnik has the experience and qualifications to help guide patients throughout their plastic surgery procedure.
