The bond between a mother and a daughter is undeniable. Now, many in America are embarking on a new journey together– that of getting plastic surgery together.

On Thursday, “Good Morning America” featured the story of Los Angeles resident Stefanie, 38, who decided to undergo cosmetic surgery with her 65-year-old mother, Lynda, who lives Montreal.

The pair figured it would be ”a nice thing” for them to do because they “could  be a support system” and it would provide a bonding experience.

Leading plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Fodor, appeared on the segment (you catch watch the clip here), and we consulted him about why this trend is gathering steam.

“The phenomenon of family members (husbands/wives, mothers/daughters etc) doing surgery together has been around for quite a while, ” he tells Celebzter. “However it has become more frequent in the last three and four years.”

Comfort within family members, he suggests, could be a major reason.

“As aesthetic surgery is becoming more common and more readily discussed, including complications, patients with close ties to other family members may fee more secure by engendering their support,” he explains.

“These patients are of major emotional support to each other, which is a significant contrast to a situation where family members are less than supportive because of jealousy, having to take up work and other obligations etc.  We have seen this quite a bit as well. ”

What do you think, would you rather go under the knife with a family member, instead of doing it alone?
