I do the thing where I put my hands on each side of my face and shift everything up but I don't like pain and risk. I guess I admire people who are braver than myself.


I don't look at myself often. Works for me.

Not sure why one would want to risk looking awful from fillers. Unless maybe they think the unattractive fillers look better than their natural self.

Courtney Cox (from Friends) received so many harsh derogatory comments - her fillers really did look terrible - that she said she 'had them removed'. Maybe she had also had plates inserted in cheeks or chin.

A good number look nothing or very little like themselves after the procedures. (whether fillers or plastic surgery)

But there's always the chance that you'll be one of the lucky ones whose looks improve from the procedures.
Speaking of, anyone see Ivana Trump on CBS Sunday morning yesterday!???

This is very much a personal choice. I do not condemn people who choose not to do this, but please do no judge those of us who do.
Perhaps you should make that plea to those who judge and condemn you for not looking "young"?

I have two friends who had facelifts while they were still working. They also went to great lengths to maintain a youthful hair color. Both were adamant that it wasn't about others' perceptions - it was about their own perceptions of themselves, that they needed the boost in self-confidence. That to me was a good enough reason for the procedure. If they had instead insisted that it was because others judged them, that to me would have been a cop out.

(Now they're both long retired, neither has the least interest in any further surgery.)

The idea of injections is scary, now in hind-sight.
Facelifts are temporary too. Any reputable cosmetic surgeon will tell you that.
