What does everyone thi nk of plastic surgery, botox and/or lifts? I am lucky and haven't actually ever looked my age yet but even if I did I wouldn't have surgery. I am a coward about pain and to cause it on purpose to me is ridiculous.

Hi Chatty,

Like you I have been blessed with good skin - not to say I don't have a few lines here and there, but NOT the kinds of wrinkles that bother me...

The few times I have had surgery have taught me that I do not handle anesthesia well, so I wouldn't do anything that would require me to had to have a general anesthetic. Though of course, if I was in an accident, that would be a different story...

A friend had an eye-lid lift some years back. They removed "fat" from that area. I def. would consider that since my lids are drooping and, I feel, hindering my eyesight.

But as far as anything else, not me.

It's not an issue right now as there's no way I have the money for that kind of thing. I might have my eyelids fixed, and maybe the turkey neck; or maybe not.

I've had enough surgery for cancer and other non-fun events that I'd be happy to never be cut again.

Plus, I don't feel a compunction to look like what a shallow media tells me I should look like. And spend lots of money and mutilate myself in the process.

Chatty,
I wouldn't go near unnecessary surgery; it scares the heck out of
me. I recently saw a news media report on how many young girls
have cosmetic surgery and the percentage was alarming.

While putting on makeup yesterday, I changed my mind. I would go for a face lift, neck lift, brow lift, eye lid lift, lip plump....
