I was a walking billboard for cosmetic surgery and I didn’t think that I had anything to be ashamed of. There were a few things about myself that I always wanted to change and when I got myself into a financial situation where I could afford to make some changes, I did. I had to work hard, my story didn’t necessarily differ from anyone else’s but I didn’t have a rich husband or a trust fund to pay for my facelift. Thank goodness that I didn’t have any children, I would have never been able to afford to be happy with myself if I had one of those cash suckers around, I barely made it as it is. When I was in my twenties, I needed an edge in the workplace so I went and got my boobs done and then I saw doors just open up right before my eyes. I didn’t understand why the world was the way it was but if I was benefitting from it, that was just fine by me. I did what I could to stay in shape and look young, I slept enough and took care of my skin and stayed hydrated, I ate healthy and I tried to remain stress free. Regardless though, there came a time when a facelift was necessary and I didn’t hesitate. It was like an instant shot of youth, the feeling is incredible and I can’t get enough of the surprised looks on people’s faces when they see the change. It’s subtle enough that most people can’t put their finger on it initially and I was very happy with it, I have to say that I look about 10 years younger. I wasn’t married anymore but ex husband would be sorry he ever cheated on me if he caught a glimpse of me now. I didn’t want to feel completely superficial about this but an old woman getting a facelift was like the equivalent to a toothless bum getting a new set of teeth. Botox was enough to get me through the last few years when I was saving up for the lift but as soon as I had the money in my bank account, I had my appointment set and was ready to go. I was already totally familiar with what to expect, I’d been doing research on it and talking to my doctor about it every time I went in for botox. I didn’t see any reason why I shouldn’t feel my absolute best and to be honest, looking my best made me feel my best. I woke up everyday since I got my face lift and looked forward to facing the day, everyday held a new challenge of some kind but I had a better attitude about it now. If you’ve ever felt like me then you know how I feel and can understand why this was so important for me. There wasn’t any reason for me to feel insecure about anything anymore and that was a feeling that meant a lot to me.
