You can’t talk about facelifts and plastic surgery these days without talking about Joan Rivers. The woman has had something like 740 cosmetic procedures done to just about every part of her body, including her vagina (maybe?). Maybe you’re forty or maybe you’re fifty, but are you ready to face a facelift like Joan?

We all want to continue to look beautiful no matter how old we are, but is surgery really the answer? Look at how much it costs? You could eat a lot of healthy food for a long time for that amount of money.
How safe is it? Ask a lot of questions. Do a lot of research. Don’t just inquire about the surgeon; find out all you can about the anesthesiologist –the person who’s really got your life in their hands. The surgeon can be a great mechanic and artist, but it’s the person with the needle and the drugs who is really important. Then there’s the recovery period when you can’t move or eat or do anything for yourself because you’re in pain and discomfort and you need someone to take care of all your personal needs – all of them!
Why do you want this? You need to really go deep into your inner feelings – do you think it will change your life? Do you think you will find love, abundance, purpose and meaning? Do you think it will improve your self-esteem and pick you up out of the depths of depression? Do you believe you will, at 65 or 75, wake up looking like Angelina Jolie?
If you have explored all of your reasons and it comes out YES!, then do it. But if you think that lifting your face will lift you from old to young, or ugly to gorgeous, then maybe you should think again. Or consider fillers. Or eat healthy foods and drink lots of water and stay out the fun.
Facelifts for Natural Beauty? I’d say For some, For sure, For others, Forget about it!
