I've had a tummy tuck, a breast reduction and lift (the children were worth it ) and I won't hesitate to have face work done when it is needed. I do like the natural look though and can't stand the plastic look.

One of my DILs started at the first lip wrinkle having them filled in. I think it was fat, maybe not, but it looked good. Now, years later, she's had the wrinkle filled so many times that the entire area from her upper lip to her nose looks like a piece of crepe paper while the rest of her face is wrinkled. Very strange looking! She's a very thin woman and a heavy smoker which I am sure, helped bring on the wrinkles.

was it with collagen? I'm about to have a filler on some facial wrinkles using a product called Restylane. It's very safe and much less drastic than a face lift.

I thought about doing something with the little "crows feet" around my eyes and the wrinkles below my bottom lip but my beautician gave me some good moisturizer and it's been helping quite a bit so maybe I can postpone it a few more years.

I wouldn't mind getting a tuck here and there to reduce the appearance of laugh lines. Also, if money were no object, I'd look into getting something done with those furrows in between my eyebrows. I'm not sure what though.

I got botox a few years ago, but didn't care for that "deadened" feeling and not being able to make an expression. On top of that, a while after discontinuing use, I found a strange squishy lump on my chest. It went away, but after that, I'd be very reluctant to have anything injected again.

I am petrified of a blood test so imagine actual surgery. I would love to get a tummy tuck but I am just too scared, even though I know tons of people who have had it done, in addition to breasts, lifts, etc., and are up and about fairly soon.

The other thing I MIGHT do, would be the eye lids. It's not a big deal if done by the right dr (ophthalmologist subspecialized in oculoplastic surgery). I work in the field and that wouldn't cost me a lot, yet I still haven't done it.

Botox doesn't last more than 4 - 6 mths. It's expensive and depending on the area(s), it can be very painful (upper lips).

No, I would not have any type of surgery. The most I would possibly do, if money were no object, are injections. Other than that, a healthy diet, exercise and lots of rest will have to do

I will just keep my wrinkles, thank you. I think most plastic surgeries look just like that..plastic..I have many laugh lines and a few frown lines and some in the forehead, (those come from deep thinking) Yeah sometimes I am embarrassed of looking old, because of the way younger people worship the perfect flawless body, I sometimes get repulsive looks..Then on the other hand, maybe by the time they are older they will also be mature in their thinking

Well sure, we would all like to look 20 all our life but nothing wrong with being and looking older. It is what it is. We all get older. It's part of life. Hey, I even think laugh lines can actually be attractive! If you're getting "repulsive looks" it's probably not you at all, just that ol' denim purse you've been carrying for 20 years! LOL!
