The surprising new trend in plastic surgery isn't so much about what is getting done but who is getting it done. "One of the most interesting cosmetic trends we're seeing is what many are calling 'generational plastic surgery,'" explains Manhattan-based plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Guida in a release. "That is, mothers, daughters, and granddaughters exploring plastic surgery together." While a mother will have different concerns than her daughter, it's the act of going through surgery and recovery together that makes the whole idea seem beneficial for both. "Plastic surgery, while often life-changing, can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming," Dr. Guida says. "In these cases — when support becomes so important — who better to have at your side than a close loved one?" So whether it's a little Botox or an under-the-knife situation, moral support seems to be the trend.
