New York, NY, January 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Robert Guida is one of New York City's most sought after nasal and facial plastic surgeons. Practicing on Manhattan's Upper East Side, Dr. Guida is reporting on a growing new trend in the world of cosmetic medicine: "generational plastic surgery."
"One of the most interesting cosmetic trends we're seeing is what many are calling 'generational plastic surgery,'" explains Dr. Guida. "That is, mothers, daughters and granddaughters exploring plastic surgery together."
Asked to speak on the advantages of this approach, Dr. Guida offered this: "While the idea of a mother and daughter undergoing plastic surgery at the same time may seem odd at first, we're actually finding that it can be beneficial to both parties," explains Dr. Guida. "Many describe it as having a built-in support system - someone close, who understands what you're going through first-hand."
Dr. Guida went on to explain that although family members are exploring plastic surgery together, their cosmetic goals will often vary. "A mother in her 60s will no doubt have different cosmetic concerns than her 40 year old daughter," explains Dr. Guida. "Where older patients tend to seek out procedures like facelift surgery or an eyelid lift, our younger patients often lean toward rhinoplasty, liposuction or minimally-invasive solutions like BOTOX; and soft tissue fillers."
This topic has also been the subject of several recent articles, including a piece published by ABC News: "According to 2005 statistics released by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 34 percent of facial plastic surgeons reported an increase in patients getting plastic surgery with a partner," explains ABC.
Commenting on the emerging role of generational plastic surgery, Dr. Guida concluded with this: "Plastic surgery, while often life-changing, can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. In these cases - when support becomes so important - who better to have at your side than a close loved one?"
