I heard about this a few weeks ago, but I wasn't sure I was understanding correctly until I saw this:

Mothers Get Plastic Surgery to Look More Like Their Daughters
http://www.koreabang.com/2014/stories/mothers-get-plastic-surgery-to-look-more-like-their-daughters.html
Quote:
According to an industry report released January 10th, the biggest plastic surgery clinics in all of Seoul’s Gangnam district show a rise in 40-50 year-old housewives getting “mother-daughter combo” plastic surgeries. The purpose of the surgeries is to hide the truth of their daughter’s surgeries. These instances occur most often after the daughters take their college entrance exams and become university students or ahead of their daughter’s marriage, when the mothers want to hide the fact that their daughters had previous surgery and try to match their look. For this reason “mother-daughter combo” service discounts are popping up at certain hospitals. At one renowned nosejob clinic in Gangnam’s Nonhyeon-dong neighborhood, daughters who accompany their mothers undergoing surgery can get free Botox injections.

I'm of two minds with regards to the cosmetic surgery culture. Regardless, this really surprised me.

Since double eyelids happen naturally here, it's hard to know without getting real close who has had that surgery. Some other surgeries sure.

The original article doesn't mention that it is a "Trend" and only use some pretty vague wording of "rise in numbers"
1->2 is a rise..

I take it you're in your 30s, where you can go out with the 40-something moms and their 20-something daughters. Very Happy
