we all know the celebrities do it all the time, and Konye West's mother died from the cosmetic surgery, so there are benefits of looking better but there are risks as well About one-half percent of patients undergoing facelift surgery at one outpatient surgical center between 2001 and 2007 developed methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, according to a new report. . http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/03/080319193029.htm If you had the means to pay for a facelift would you get one?

No I would certainly never have a facelift even if I were a millionaire. I think people who have such surgery always look a little bit odd and not natural at all. Anyway I like my few lines and wrinkles it gives me charactor

I don't think I would get a facelift, but I'd rather get plastic surgery to change the shape of my mouth and to cover a scar I have beside my eye which I got when I was at school I am quite conscious of it, sadly it wasn't deemed important to have done on the NHS at the time. But it's disfigured. So if I had the money I would definitely opt for plastic surgery, yes I know I am vain, but when you feel unattractive to others it kind of gets you down a lot.

NO! but then again I'm only 35.. and don't need one yet I always said that if I had the money I'd get a nose job... I hate my nose--- but I don't think I'd get a facelift. I'd like to think that I am going to grow old gracefully.

no, i will not get one because due to the advances in medicine, there are now plenty of non-invasive treatments to make us look younger. i'd go for that than risk my life. and i will always put in my head, that, whatever i do, i would get old and look old if i die old. :)

I would never get a facelift, even if I had the money. We all age so I don't see what the point is in trying to combat that by getting dangerous, expensive, unnecessary surgeries. I wouldn't even go for botox or things like that because I'm human. I age. I get over it. I don't see why most people can't accept that. I can only see one exception being if I were in an accident that disfigured my face and I needed cosmetic surgery to repair it.

I would not have a face lift. I don't think my creator makes mistakes so I am happy with what I see in the mirror.

Rose I would be scared witless to have a facelift!!!lol even tho maybe it would be a good idea!!! My sister has regular botox and I can always tell when she has had it...after one lot she looked `startled`!!!!...and her mouth was moving differently. I think i will just go with the flow

i won't and will never do such thing... im totally contented of how the way i look... the money i will spend for face lift can be given to charitable institutions wherein lots of people need more important help i don't want to judge people who just want to look good and feel good that's their choice in life and i respect that.
