Mothers Inspire Daughters to Change Their Look

Posted on May 10, 2010 | by

This mother’s day, several news stories discussed mom’s role in how you perceive and change your physical appearance.  The reports say that more mothers and daughters are pairing up to get cosmetic procedures.

Is your mother more likely to undergo cosmetic surgery?  If so, you might find yourself inspired to do the same when you see the results.  The number of mother-daughter pairs visiting Dr. James Koehler in Tulsa has him seriously considering a “family discount.”


If your mother had a successful rhinoplasty, would you do the same?  One young woman gives her compelling nose-job story to Elle, discussing the years she spent deliberating about the operation and how she finally decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps. After her rhinoplasty, she confesses: “I hate to say it, but my mother is right: It’s the nose I was meant to have.”


Last month, reporters confirmed that supermodel Christie Brinkley had a facelift and her daughter Alexa Ray Joel checked in for a rhinoplasty the following day.  According to reports from the New York Post, the mother and daughter have already made several public appearances to show off their new looks.
