Would you ever consider a face lift or plastic surgery? "Me" not in a million years. I can see if you had a bad accident or you were born deformed than that's different, but just because you have some wrinkles or you don't like your nose "no Way". Some of those people with face lifts can't even smile that's how tight there skin is. You still gonna get old and die.

Not a face lift, but I'd like tummy reconstruction when I can afford it. I have a pouch, that's what I call it, from having 6 babies. No amount of exercise has gotten rid of it and I don't feel comfortable with it. It makes it hard to get pants to fit, etc. One day I'll have the job done so that I can physically feel better, and be able to do more then I can now with it in the way. Namaste-Anora

I had the pouch just about all my life. Not from having kids though. Mine is from being overweight to loosing a lot of weight and never exercising.

Mine has slowly become an issue. I don't want to be gross on the board but I'm sure you can understand. It's gotten to the point for me that it's in the way. It's no longer "cute", it's a problem. And I exercise quite a bit. It's funny too because my trainer that I had when in another state told me "It's the last thing to go", where as a doctor up here just recently on a news program said "Stomach fat is the first thing to go when you start exercising". I'm thinking "Well, which is it?" lol. Namaste-Anora

Nope, I have to say that I would never consider it. Like you, I might do it for the reasons you already mentioned, but to do it just to try and make myself look better isn't reason enough for me. Even if I had money to do it I wouldn't want to. I'm too much of a chicken anyway. I'd never want to go under the knife unless it was absolutely necessary (like if it happened to save my life). Have you ever noticed how some people, like celebs, have a plastic look about them after having too much surgery? Talk about nasty. I don't know why they'd want to do that to themselves. I myself would rather grow old gracefully than look like some plastic barbie doll. But that's just me. LOL Happy mylotting!

No, I'd never get a facelift. I figure God gave me what he wanted me to have so that's what I'm keeping. I'm happy with what I have and am just going to age gracefully. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I would never have any kind of plastic surgery unless I had been very obese and had a lot of kin hanging around. That is the only reason for me. I have spent 64 years getting my wrinkles and though I would like a few less I feel that I have earned them. What I find shameful is that we women are influenced by the media as to what is beautiful. As some of us get older we develop what I like to call character in our face and I for one find it attractive. During the early movie days often the good and most memorable actresses had faced with character. Look at the actress Margaret Hamilton who played the wicked witch of the north and Irene Ryan as granny in the Beverly Hillbillies. They were beautiful.

I'm glad you feel that way and so do I. I think we're all beautiful in our own way and why change that with cosmetic surgery.

Nope. I don't like going 'under the knife' - no guarantee about how the surgery will go. And it's just not worth it, to get rid of wrinkles, eye bags, crooked nose, so forth. Unless, like you said, it's deformity or accident, then that's corrective rather than cosmetic surgery.

I never think about. I saw people after plastic surgery and I can easy recognize people after plastic surgery, they look like mannequins... It is also not healthy, any surgical procedure can suppressed your immune system.

Some of them look like they wearing tight masks, not very attractive.

Hi missy! Nope! I believe that if ain't broke don't fix it! In other words leave well enough alone! I would not mess with mother nature! I may not be perfect, but I am not about to change anything even though I am getting old and wrinkly! My mother on the other hand is 79 and very vain! She had 2 eyelift surgeries and one facelift! She probably looks younger then me, but I don't give a damn!

I've always been like you on this one... not in a million years. I kinda like what my wrinkles and sagging parts have to say about me. But recently I wondered what an eyelift would do for me, and now I can't get it out of my head. Keep the wrinkles around the outside of my eyes but just lift my eyelids, you know, so I look more awake. I hate when I get an idea in my head and can't get it out.

The only one that I think about at times is the lips suction but I would never do it. I just have to live with my poochy belly.

I would not do it even I had millions or I was super super ugly. First, I don't think I can accept it and I doubt it lasts any long, I don't care how good the doctor convinces. Second, I don't think guys can accept it in general, if I were guys, I wouldn't want to marry somebody that is fake. Third, I would probably always worry if this is going to fall off or that is going to be twisted... I think people need to be very brave to do it. Not me.

It's not for me either not even if some one would pay me to do it. No thanks.

I asked my husband last night whether he feels okay that I may have plastic surgery for better figure. Actually, we prefer to do exercises to keep our figure fit, and it always works. Last night, out of curiosity, I asked him whether it is a good idea if I had a plastic surgery after I gave birth. I just told him I want to have surgery on my belly if my belly is still bagged after many exercises. I think a small surgery is acceptable.

I thought about lipo suction before because I have the belly problem too but I could never bring myself to do it. It takes money too.

Well, i never consider to have noselift or facelift either. it is too risky to have changes in your body except like what you said, when someone meet an accident and deformed his face, that could be necessary to have a surgery but for wrinkles sake? and the aspiration to look younger? forget it. I know of somebody who has a nose lift and she never do the things in a normal way. her nose became sensitive to touch and she must be careful when she moves, she might bump her nose into something and could create a major problem. That what I don't like in it.

I'm with you missybear, no way. Sure I see my face sagging. I've placed my fingers at my hairline about eye level and pulled up and back and ah the difference it makes! But, I have more important things to spend my money on than my looks. Secondly, I'm sure I'd want to go "under the knife" for anything that wasn't absolutely necessary.

Like they say "If it's not broken why fix it"
