Have you had work done? The plastic surgery question is never far below the surface.

This is the acid test of our age. Do we or don’t we? After mentioning that I had IPL(intense pulsed laser) to blast sun damage off my face last year, a friend asked if I had other “work done.”  Nope. I don’t have the courage or the currency but I certainly have fantasized about getting an eyebrow lift for my eyelids or a “lifestyle lift” for my wandering jaw. I’ve pinched and pulled my face before mirrors trying to imagine a new, improved visage but look like catwoman gone mad.

Do you know what’s involved in a brow lift? They cut your scalp above the hairline and pull your face up, then snip and close. It’s positively medieval!

And don’t get me started on fillers & freezers. The idea of sludge being injectioned into my face makes me feel weak in the knees. And the freak show of faces with perma-smiles and glassy foreheads makes Botox a no go as well.

So, no, I haven’t had any work done. But if they ever figure out a pain-free, freak free (Heidi Montag & Phyllis Diller come to mind) way to stop my face from falling to my ankles, I will certainly reconsider. Meanwhile, I will religiously use a mega SPF sunscreen the rest of my days.
