Ahhh, yes . . . my "magic box." Or as my sister calls it - "de-monsterizing cream"

It's amazing how far a little concealer can take us!

I suppose it is a red herring you are running up to distract the discussion.

Fact is that one can tell a lot about how a person has lived their life by looking at their face. Anyone who doesn't not know this is in denial. It is not always a persons fault, but frowning anger stress and hardship take their toll over a lifetime. People who accept their situation, make the best of it regardless, look on the bright side of things, laugh easily, refrain from anger and resentment, don't need plastic surgery. Simple answer, live your life as though you enjoy it and act as if you do even if it is hard. All that angst and anger doesn't change anything, just makes you ugly when you get old.
Post your mug shot, I want to see what you look like!

After reading this thread for a few days, I am compelled, finally, to respond. I've had a bit of plastic surgery for several reasons and am very grateful for its existence. My first was at age 33 because my eyelids were so closed, my contact lenses wouldn't stay in and everyone kept asking me why I was angry. Surgery corrected that. Later in life, extreme pain from migraine headaches caused me to age prematurely and an upper face lift took be from looking 60 years old to my actual age of 43. Then, as I've mentioned previously, a lower facelift and implants enabled me to make ALOT of money as a stripper from age 47 to 57. Were it not for plastic surgery, my life would have been very different and I believe I would have been very unhappy and certainly, not have the more fortunate lifestyle I now have. So you see, it may not be what you think it is.

It crosses my mind that this is "fake" enhancement, but how many women around the world, from primitive cultures to modern-day, use such enhancement?

Enhancement of any kind, from makeup to hair coloring to plastic surgery, is all on the same continuum, like it or not. Just depends on how far one wants to travel on the continuum, with nerve and cash.

There you go, perfect example of one's profession demanding good looks! I hope you got a tax write-off!

Absolutely! And add to the actual makeup all the various serums and creams that I use . . . from forehead to decollete . . .

Which reminds me . . . have you all heard about the mashed up banana treatment for sagging . . . oh, guess that is another thread.

I yams what I yams and that's alls that I yams. No enhancements here. Never were. Never will be and no extraordinary measures. Rugged suits me! Others might call it beat to sh*t.
