Mum-daughter ‘surgery duets’
New York: Mother-daughter ‘cosmetic surgery duets’ are on the rise, say plastic surgeons.
Manhattan facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk says that although there are no formal statistics on ‘family’ operations, they have become ‘very common.’
At least one mother and daughter come see him each month for simultaneous surgery.
“I see it when there’s a wedding. The mother wants to have a little face-lift and the daughter is getting a nose job. Or they both come in for Botox or fillers. I’ve even seen a daughter-mother-grandmother combo,” the New York Daily News quoted Rizk as telling msnbc.com.
Tulsa surgeon Dr James Koehler sees around 10 mother-daughter pairs annually. He’s now seeing so many that he may soon offer a family discount.
“It’s usually the mother that goes first. And the daughter will be like, ‘Mom, you’re fine how you are.’ But right after that, the daughter’s on the phone to make her own appointment,” Koehler told msnbc.com.
