No one should have cosmetic surgery except to remove really ugly stuff like a big hairy mole or a wart or to correct a serious problem that affects health or lifestyle. The whole industry is run by charlatans for fools.

Any face lift on a woman who needs it will be an incremental change at best. Ladies, you are kidding yourself if you think anyone cares whether you have two neck rings or five neck rings other than the surgeon and like-minded females of a similar age.

Women need to accept who they are at each stage of life without pretending to be someone else.

Sometimes when I stay up late, like today, 5:23am here , there is one of those home shopping crap programs. I find that funny. Just a few weeks ago they were selling snail slime extract that would work miracles and make you look like your own daughter again. And today it is snake venom cream for the same purpose. I wonder what's next

I just love it when men pop into this forum and tell us ladies what to do.
Christ, what IS that about?
Do they think we're too stupid to figure crap out on our own?
Or do they think its still the 50's?
To answer the OP, the only work I have had is to repair a nasty scar on my face from an accident, I can hardly tell its there now.

The only reason women get face lifts is because they think they will appear younger than they actually are. Which, of course never works because whether you 50 or 53, you aren't 32 so just forget about it. That's what I meant by "incremental." You gals are all beautiful for who you are not who you look like.

Sometimes a woman just needs to have a man's viewpoint on these thing. Joy, you don't need to personalize this and demean my comments. You're opinion can stand on its own without having to step on mine. Try a little respect for others' opinions. You'll appear to be the better person for it.

I guess they think men are so stupid and superficial not to notice a face that doesn't correspond to the rest of the person

Because everything women do is for men right?

I have several friends who have had facelifts (or eye lifts or other smallish "procedures")...they did it for themselves to correct something that bothered them. As far as I know, they've all been happy with the results.

Frankly, yes, I do think women want to look as young, perfect and attractive as possible for men, whether knowingly or not.
Same reason why men try to look tall and muscular, torturing themselves in studios etc.

I don't know of anyone who's had one personally but I've seen them performed on TV and it's one of the most painfull looking surgeries I've seen! I mean the way they pull the skin away from the muscle, pull the skin tighter, screw or staple it in place until they sew it together looks like pure hell!

My mom's best friend is late 60's and she just had a "mini" facelift this year. She looks amazing and not at all like someone who has had "work" done. She did it to make herself feel better. Not to look better for men (she's been married for 50 years) or to look younger or to make others jealous or anything silly like that. She just wanted to have the bags removed from under the eyes and also take down her hooded eyelids. She also had a little bit of restylyne put in her face to help with the "monkey-mouth". She had a little lifting done around the jowl area. Hence the reason I guess they refer to it as a "mini-facelift". She did it all to make herself look more rested and awake.

I would have it done if it made me feel better. It cost her about 10K but then again, they have plenty of money
