A family that nips and tucks together, stays together.
At least, that applies to the Ng family, who say that undergoing plastic surgery has brought them closer together.
Youngest daughter Veronica Ng, 22, was first to head to South Korea for the operation last September.
Mum Mary, 57, liked how her daughter turned out after the procedure so much that she went under the knife in February.
Then Miss Ng's older sister, Elizabeth, a 27-year-old finance officer, decided that she, too, would like to enhance her looks and had plastic surgery in June.
All three went to the same clinic in Seoul.
It all began when Miss Ng, a freelance make-up artist, wanted to mark her 21st birthday last year with a fresh start.
She says: "I think at that time, subconsciously, I wanted tosomething to break away from my rebellious past, to start anew as an adult."
She picked South Korea over Thailand because "everyone has heard of the (South Korean) surgeons' skills".
"I've heard of how good the Korean doctors are and I was really curious," she says.
The country's stable of gorgeous "and no-secret that-they-have-gone-through-plastic-surgery" stars was another reason.
"Look at all the (Korean) female stars. They look so good."
Miss Ng then asked her parents for permission to undergo the operation and both were supportive.
Her mother advised Miss Ng to get more details on the best options available.
Mrs Ng, who helps his husband in his bakery business, says: "I felt it was okay just as long as the job is done properly and well.
"Plastic surgery is not something to be shameful of."
Dad, who declined to be named, agreed to pay for the $6,000 operation.
