Nearly half the plastic surgeons responding to a national survey said they had remodeled their family members, and some augmented the breasts of their wives and daughters, according to a survey released in Los Angeles. Almost one-third of the surgeons had undergone plastic surgery themselves, most opting for nose jobs and face lifts, the two doctors who conducted the survey told the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
