When you're older, would you consider cosmetic surgery to keep a youthful glow?

I'm not vain, insecure or anything but one of my goals in life is to have enough money so that I can fix whatever needs to be fixed when I reach a certain age and my body has been defeated by free radicals and gravity. Physical appearance may not be the measurement of a person's worth but wouldn't you agree that you have to maintain your looks so that you can confidently face the world? So would you consider cosmetic surgery?

Accepted with cosmetic surgery and other method you can retain your look for a considerable period. But what about the ageing process? Would that too stop? No. The cells are each moment and each second dying and we are on our back yard journey. Might be you would look handsome/beautiful with the cosmetic surgery but one day you will have to surrender the the inevitable. This is why I would not go against the Natural process and the money that I have accumulated would be spent on good purpose.

Well said. This is an elegant response, and you bring up a good point. The aging process continues inside even if we look young on the outside.

I believe in aging gracefully. A lot of older people who have had a lot of cosmetic surgery look very strange to me. I'd rather just look old.

One of my friend went for a eye lid operation, so that his eye hair does not get into eyes to hinder sight. And after operation, he looks much better. Such combination is like shooting two with one. Why not? Other than that, I feel, at least for the moment, not possibly to go for a cosmetic surgery.

Possibly, but only as a last resort. I use an herbal cream that has kept away the wrinkles pretty much. I have a little sagging but no wrinkles. How's that for 55. Most people have guessed me to be in late 30's, early 40's. It also has a lot to do with good genes, no smoking, staying away from coffee, etc. Smiling helps hide the sagging.
