Plastic Surgery Is the New Trend in Mother Daughter Bonding
The trend owes itself partly to the fact that plastic surgery in general is less taboo—women are more likely to talk about it with their friends as well as their family—and partly to the fact that they’re starting younger. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’s 2016 member survey, 56 percent of facial plastic surgeons reported an increase in cosmetic surgery with patients under age 30.
“It shows a change in what the millennial wants,” says Doft. “15 years ago, you waited till you were ‘old enough.’ But the idea of prevention and maintenance is something that women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s are coming around to. They start earlier, make gradual changes, and get to enjoy it.”
