Source - A mother celebrates her daughter's twenty-first birthday by buying them matching lip filler injections so they can 'look the same' in sMothered.
In tonight's episode of the TLC show, Sandra, 45, surprises Mariah, 21, who are both from LA, when they pull up outside her plastic surgery clinic.
'Are you ready for your surprise?' says the excited mother. 'Remember how you've been wanting to get your lip injections…?' she teases, much to her daughter's delight, but her sister Jen's dismay.
Walking into the surgery, the excited pair pout their lips, twerk and dance around - much to Jen's embarrassment.
'I don't need the lip injections,' explains Mariah. 'I'm not going to overdo it, I just like how it gives you more of a pout.'
After a short wait, plastic surgeon Dr Mirkia walks in and introduces himself to Mariah and Sandra. 'I want to look just my daughter,' Sandra says to him. Dr Mirkia explains: 'The majority of people get like a picture of a celebrity and they would say they want to look like this person. But when I ask Sandra who she wants to look like, she says her daughter, which is very unusual!'
Despite more push backs from Jen, Sandra and Mariah decide to go ahead with the procedure.
I know that lip filler in 2019 is run of the mill, but I still consider it a plastic surgery. If you use a local anesthetic and it alters your appearance...it's plastic surgery. Whether you agree with that or not doesn't matter. What matters is that this mother and daughter were able to bond through their love of lip filler and that's something we should all celebrate. Especially with results like this.
And here's Mariah aka 'stayyjealous', her twenty-one-year-old Instagram model daughter:
The resemblance is uncanny! Especially those lips. So before you judge them for the wildly bizarre decision to get joint face alterations, remember that this is what makes them happy. You do your thing and let them do theirs. Best of luck to Sandra and Mariah. Don't listen to the haters.
