Some Mothers Look Like Their Daughters Naturally . . .

And others will pay for the privilege.

This is straight up twinsanity! "Love you like a sister" is a sweet sentiment unless you're 50 years old and spend 10,000 British pounds (about $15,000) to look like your 28-year-old daughter. But that's just what Janet Cunliffe did to look like her daughter Jane.

In her 30s, Janet became unhappy with her breasts, which she thought were too small and saggy. She got plastic surgery in the hopes she could save her ailing marriage, but alas, she and her husband divorced. By 40, she moved to Spain and met someone new, but between ruptured implants, followed by even bigger breast implants, her post-marriage relationship ended. Once she moved back to England to live with her daughter, she began despairing about her age. This led to a punishing round of dieting, plastic surgery on her nose, eyes, and lips, and of course, hair extensions.

Now that people think Janet and Jane are sisters — and sometimes even twins — Janet claims she's happy. "It's not a competition," she argues. "This has always been about my own confidence and self-esteem. I haven't done this to get a man, I'm happy spending time with my daughter and reliving my youth, thanks to my new look."

Socializing with friends her own age, starting a new hobby, and meeting new people (activities to cultivate her inner self) didn't help her — but plastic surgery did? Wow. If this is progress — count me out. Click here to read more about Janet, Jane, and "Operation Overhaul."

omg wouldn't you just h8 your mum for trying to be like you and teaching you that she thinks looks are so much more important than being a mum and living life. uh i feel so sorry for her daughter, im sure she dosn't want a sister, you need your mum, btw she also im sure is very attractive but you can def tell shes her mum, still very obvious and you just can't change some things. i think this is so sad.

You're not fooling anyone (except maybe yourself), but if it makes you happier (and doesn't drive your daughter nuts), well, its your money you're wasting.

Well, if this makes her happy, more power to her. I wonder how her daughter feels about this? Personally, I do not identify with this woman. Firstly, I don't have children, and thus, no daughter to want to emulate. Secondly, I've always been content with my appearance. I have good genes, and I take good care of myself.

My mom and I look alike naturally. She looks younger than her age and so do I. I still get carded. My mom looks like she's in her mid 40's. I love the fact that she kept saying that every one would want to look like her daughter.

Aaand, this illustrates my beef with TrèsSugar. Sorry, this is "interesting," but not the kind of thing I actually care about, nor would have found on Citizen.

I hate when people do things 'for themselves'... Subjecting her body to multiple surgeries because it makes her happy? Really? You thought your boobs were too small, compared to whose ideals? But anyway, I think she's delusional.

Chrstne, I totally agree. Who do they think they're fooling? Honestly, I think women who resist getting older are probably women who have used their looks as their currency for their entire lives. When they get older, they look around and feel like they don't have anything else to fall back on. The photo of that woman and her daughter is awful. They both look like fake plastic Barbie dolls.

This is sick. Why can't people just get that it is nature to become older? But anyway if she is happy good for her I guess...

People always say I look like my mother. When one of my college boyfriends was meeting my mom for the first time he actually was riding in the elevator with her without me there and he knew it was her because she looked like me! So they met without me even introducing them!

Yes, dm8. It's Kate and Goldie. Adorable. Must've been the '90s — check out the high-waisted, light wash jeans action with a fanny pack to boot! Awesome.

Is that Kate and Goldie? I thought it was Melanie Griffith and one of her kids...

It's sad. She should've used the money for therapy.

If she is happy, fine. But I don't get why 40 year olds want to look 20. What is the point, really? Everyone KNOWS you are not 20...I can spot a person with surgery a mile away...they look like old people trying too hard to look young.

This is a little excessive to me but I guess if that's what made her happy that's her thing.
